For me, best sushi in NYC

Unlike most top class western restaurants -and following the perfect Japnese tradition- the place is definitely low-profile and not fancy, so that focus can be totally on food. Definitely a unique experience for real sushi lovers. Not recommended for all-you-can-eat fans. Make sure you book... read more

Definitely a unique experience for real sushi lovers. Not recommended for all-you-can-eat fans. Make sure you book well in advance to avoid unpleasant denials. For me, the best sushi in NYC.

No doubt about it - this must be one of NYC best sushi restaurants. The atmosphere, the waitresses, the open kitchen - it is all authentic. And the food - we ordered omakase - literally leaving it u to the chef. It was just amazing and it kept coming and it kept leveling-up. Unfortunately the omakase concept do not really... More

We visited the Sushi Yasuda to know one of the best Japanese restaurants in NYC, according to experts. The location is close to Grand Central Terminal. The dining experience was good with varied and tasty sushi. We made reservations a week in advance, and it seemed appropriate, because the place was full.

Sushi Yasuda is a true traditional restaurant where the preparation of fish is brought to the level of Art. The restaurant itself is well and traditionally decorated. Staff is looking after customers an impeccable way. But the most important thing to report is about the food served at Sushi Yasuda. I have been eating in many excellent Japanese places from...

I saw a youtube video about Sushi Yasuda, and as soon as I saw that video, I made a reservation. The interior is not too fancy, but still calm and clean. I ordered a lot, so I will focus on a particular dish I enjoyed. The tuna roll, is one of the best in my opinion.

We sat at the sushi bar and had the omakase here. The sushi was truly amazing. Every piece of fish was extremely fresh and melt in your mouth good. My fav was the uni. We ordered extra! Service is also included in your meal. Just like Japan!

Had a late reservation (9:15) on Saturday night and was seated on time. Unlike other reviewers, I did not feel pressured for time. My boyfriend and I had the omakase, and it was well worth the price ($340 for 2... sashimi to start with probably 10-12 sushi each and 2 sake). The ambiance and RICE made it, honestly. As a... More

This is a very famous sushi restaurant, but we should not expect too much. Pros : -Convenient location (just a minute walk from GCT) -No service charge (Tips already included) Cons: -Pricey for the total quality -A little bit bland taste as a whole

I'm eaten here twice over the past month - once for lunch and once for dinner. We got the omakase (chef's choice) both times. I believe that this is the finest restaurant for traditional sushi in NYC. Everything is mouth watering and melts in your mouth. It is expensive but the food is top quality.

This is a hgh-end sushi place that deserves its reputation. We did the chef's selection, which came out pricey (+$300 for two) but if you really want to taste sushi at its best I have to say this place delivers You can taste the freshness and the chef does really come up with good pairings. If you are looking for... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
