New management at Yoshi's in Somerville

Saw a sign last month that Yoshi's was under new management so I went in to confirm and, yes, they say the manager and chefs are new. So I gave it another try (didn't care for the old Yoshi's). In short, the sushi is still mediocre and the prices are average to high (about $4 per minimal roll, or $4 for 2 pcs. of nigiri). The rice is way too sweet. Ginger is of the less-flavorful, sweet hot-pink jarred variety. The fish was sushi-grade, but barely. Seaweed salad was OK but also too sweet. Oshitashi sesame spinach had so much smoke essence in it that although it had the look and texture of spinach it tasted like bacon bits (a somewhat bizarre effect). Perhaps the Korean entrees are better. Anyone else been? The place is often quite full on weekends.
