Great Sushi in the Big Apple

I have been to every sushi restaurant in an NYC's Top 10 list. None can hold a candle to Yasuda. From the simplicity of the setting, the quality of the rice, it cannot be matched. While other places have cost 20% more, Yasuda does not break the bank. Considering how good everything is, they could easily charge more than they... More

The service staff was very attentive but not but not so much to be intrusive. We had omakase and were treated to some excellent cuts of fish. I would recommend this place and would like to return.

After-ballet omikase experience par excellent. Allowing the chef to pick for you is always preferable to a la carte because of their knowledge. There are, however, no bad choices. This is not 2 day-old supermarket sushi, and you pay for it. As you should. Very modern almost hidden façade greets you as you enter open, well-lit sushi bar with tables... More

Having been fortunate enough to eat at some of the world's most sought out sushi houses (Jiro, Saito, Nakazawa, etc), let me start off by saying the sushi here is some of the best I have ever had outside of Japan. The quality is unparalleled! The restaurant is elegant and simple, just like the food. The restaurant does not try... More

The fish is so fresh and of such good quality that it doesn't need to be over complicated. Simple sushi and sashimi are excellent here.

The quality of fish was high, can't complain, but it wasn't amazing and it was uneven, I have had better. Two issues: miniscule cuts of fish and poorly trained staff. May be we should've gone with omakase option, people at the next table were having it and their pieces were certainly bigger ( and believe me it is not the... More

We came here before seeing a play. We saw online that reservations are a must, so we made a reservation two weeks ahead of time. We couldn't sit at the bar and do omakase because we had the play at 8, so we made a reservation for a table. Please note: when they call the day before to confirm your... More

The best sushi I've ever had. The quality of the sushi outweighs everything else - a restaurant under renovation, a struggling server in training, a thermostat on "sauna" setting and the prices. Looking forward to my next visit!

The sushi was exceptionally fresh. But, it was a "one dimensional meal", basically fish and rice. It would have been nice to have some vegetable dishes to balance out the meal. If they were on the menu we missed them. Tea at the end was included / no charge.

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.
