Yagi in Japanese means goat. So, it's no surprise the people who brought you The GOAT Bar and Grill were going to bring the same consistency to the new orient-themed restaurant.
And their attention to detail followed.
Yagi Sushi and Hibachi has a couple soft openings under their belt now and are looking forward to their grand opening. Tonight, however, we got to enjoy quite an array of food, chat with two of three of the owners (Joe Kralich and Tommy Hauser) and witness the potential G.O.A.T setting up shop in Pawleys Island.
Just for the record, G.O.A.T. means greatest of all time.
The ambiance inside is quite fitting for the look. Hand-painted wood booths and neat table arrangement makes it a snap to get around and about. It will be very different if you dined here when it was Indo Thai.
The menus are posted in another post. After looking at the photos below, we suggest you click the hyperlink above in blue and plan your dining selections - especially the sushi - ahead of time.
Quick service and fast delivery of food from the kitchen was the norm of the night with us and other tables. I loved the advanced POS with electronic handhelds being used. Orders sent straight to the kitchen and they even asked whether we wanted holds put on entrees so we could enjoy the appetizers and sushi. Nice to be able space out the food in a few punches on the handheld.
What's rewarding to see is a new restaurant wanting to make a positive impact on the area, offering top-quality food at fair pricing.
We're looking forward to many future trips to this eatery.
