The Robin Rowland-led group will open units in Baker Street, High Street Kensington, Richmond, Kingston and Heathrow T2 across May and June.
Chief operating officer Vanessa Hall said: “YO! Sushi opened its doors in London’s Soho for the first time in 1997 and with over 17 years’ experience of bringing sushi to the masses we’re excited to increase our offering in the hustle and bustle of one of the most competitive dining markets on the planet
“London presents YO! Sushi with a wealth of opportunities, as there is huge demand for our unique, fun and casual kaiten dining experience.”
The restaurant group also plans to open a further five restaurants across the country, creating 250 new jobs.
These new London openings come after a decade long expansion outside of the capital with key sites now established in Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow totalling 67 in the UK and 11 restaurants internationally.
