Chef Yoshi Kohazame – Head Chef, Bansho Sushi
As a young boy in Okinawa, Japan, Yoshi Kohazame spent many an evening gathered with family and friends, watching the bright orange sun setting into the crystal blue waters off the coast of his island home. Today, it is only fitting that the restaurant he helped develop, Banshoo, should be named sunset in Japanese. Here, Chef Yoshi’s 20 years of experience, cooking and creating sushi in some of Orlando’s finest Japanese restaurants, is rolled into every bite. With a passion for seafood, an unwavering commitment to fresh, quality ingredients and a gift for artistic presentation, Chef Yoshi has created an intimate dining experience for family and friends, and a diverse menu of appetizer-sized rolls and specialty dishes worthy of the name Banshoo.
