You’ll find Yojisu tucked down a road outside of the centre of Aix, close to many of the out-of-town retail stores. It’s been serving a faithful crowd who have been coming out of their way to eat here since 1988. It’s often full of office workers during the week and families at the weekends. The decor is chic, the service attentive and the food beloved.
