In 1991 the Chinese Gourmet opened as a take-out restaurant in Killington above Zorba’s Mini Mart. Two years later our business grew and we added the dining room. You could enjoy our Chinese food in a sit down environment, unfortunately as some of you remember, all food was served in to-go boxes at tables! That year we removed the to-go boxes for traditional dining ware.
In 1995 on a trip to Palau, an Island off the coast of Japan, one of the owners tried sushi and was hooked. He hired a Japanese consultant, Yataka Yoshida of Brookfield, CT and expanded the restaurant by offering sushi. The business has grown with ventures in Manchester VT, Stowe and Killington base lodges.
In the summer of 2002, The Chinese Gourmet acquired the old Mother Shapiro’s building. Once in our larger building we decided to add even more excitement to the restaurant by including 4 Hibachi grills.
In the summer of 2005 the Chinese Gourmet Sushi Yoshi opened a large restaurant on Route 9 in Lake George just south of the village, featuring the same great ambiance and great service, but with 8 Hibachi tables.
Most recently we opened our third location in Stowe, Vermont with a special Asian Fusion menu.
Our eclectic offerings of Asian food have been widely praised and appreciated wherever we have ventured. We hope you too will enjoy your experience at the new Sushi Yoshi Chinese Gourmet and Hibachi Steak House.
