High end sushi. The best in New York. I am a regular customer, i've eaten with master Yasuda, and i always eat at the bar. Cant be more delicious this place. This is sushi utopia. The decor is cool, cold, it depends on how you see it: a sushi shrine with minimalistic decor or sushi paradise with a boring seting,... More

Been here five times and it really does keep on getting better and better. The service is nothing to write home about, but the sushi is super fresh and delicious. Do not come here if you are looking for fancy rolls or ornate pieces. Do come here if you are looking for fresh and simple sushi that will melt in... More

My partner visits Japan often but I've only been to a couple of Japanese restaurants. I loved this place. It was very busy but we were were lucky enough to sit at the front and watch the guys prepare the food I was fascinated. Everything was tasty and I especially enoyed the spanish mackerel. If you want tasty Japanese food... More

I cannot recommend sushi Yasuda enough. The sushi is outer worldly and I can no longer being myself to go anywhere else for sushi. It is very much worth the little extra that it costs. I also really appreciate the no tip policy in combination with great, knowledgeable and attentive service. It is clear that all staff here - whether... More

Wonderful experience. Had our server pick the entire meal (all courses) for us and it was an awesome experience. All the sushi was fresh and wonderful. The best part of the restaurant is they don't allow tipping. They pay their staff enough in wages that the customers don't need to tip to supplement their income. Great Japanese experience in Manhattan.

This was a very delicious experience and a first omakase for me. Every piece was very fresh and very tasty. Some items I had never had in a Japanese restaurant, like oyster sushi. The price matched the quality. Expect to spend money! But it was all very well worth it.

No doubt, the quality of fish here at Sushi Yasuda was awesome. For those who love to indulge in sushi or sashimi, it's about the texture, and clean flavors of the fish and sushi Yasuda delivered in those areas. In addition, I really liked that they make their own shoyu (that's soy sauce), because you can really taste that it's... More

The very best sushi ever - book a seat at the bar, not a table : you have got a sushi master taking care of your order -and basically preparing what is the best, freshest, most interesting. Not only the fish is melting on your tongue, the rice is unbelievable, both forming support for sushi and having each grain separate.... More

Simply one of the best Japanese restaurants in NYC. A must. Perfect service, superb quality, though a bit pricey, but well worth it.

The fish is melting in your mouth. The service is amazing. Advance reservations are required. Best tables are in front of the open kitchen
