The booking process at Sushi Yasuda is a bit weird, you're told what time you can arrive, must not be more than 10min late, must clear the table in 1.5hrs, must call 2 days prior to confirm, etc., but the restaurant itself is great. A modest, simple restaurant on a dark street a couple of blocks from Grand Central Station,... More

Best sushi around, only fresh ingredients are used. Service is perfect. Reservations needed! For best experience ask for sushi bar and experience the best omakase cuisine style.

Sushi Yasuda has a very clean and bright design, the service is very efficient, and the food excellent. I didn't have Sushi but delicious terryaki sea bass, which was outstanding. Looking around the sushi also looked amazing. With being spoiled for choice in the area I would nevertheless come back !

We went for lunch and asked for the head chef when we booked. Wow!!! He makes sushi so quickly and effortlessly! We tried from memory, everything, or almost everything on the menu. Seared tuna was my favourite. Went in with an open mind and tried everything. Sad part is every time we have sushi we always compare it to Yasuda....... More

We visited New York in December and were directed to Sushi Yasuda by a friend. We reserved a seat at the Sushi Bar and we had the Omakase option. After discussing our sushi preferences with the allotted chef, we had hands down the most incredible selection of sushi in our life, a real range of flavours, all just melting in... More

Heard good things about this restaurant. Food good, chef good, service good. But when making the reservation I was never told that from my 12 midday booking I would be kicked out at 1.30pm. Very unprofessional. The management should be ashamed. Will never return and HIGHLY RECOMMEND SUSHI DEN. Both head chef's at east side of 5th and west side... More

Based on Trip Advisor & Frommers reviews, booked Sushi Yasuda a couple of weeks before, expecting Awesomeness. Don't get me wrong, the food was good. Fish was fresh and flavorful but similar to sushi / sashimi I've had in Vancouver. Maybe we were expecting it to be like Sugarfish in Los Angeles where the sushi just melted in your mouth.... More

Hands down my favorite sushi in NYC. I have been here multiple times and have never been disappointed. While I have sat at a table before, i recommend calling ahead and booking a spot at the sushi bar. We always request Chef Tatsu, who is friendly and knowledgeable. The fish is extremely fresh. While the menu varies depending on what... More

I don't need fancy. I need incredible food, great service, cleanliness and a seamless experience. They have it all. I am very picky when it comes to sushi in NYC. I have now 3 places I'll eat it, this being my absolute favorite.

Subarashi in Japanese means awesome, which best describes our collective experience at Sushi Yasuda. Located in E 43rd, Sushi Yasuda is off the beaten path, yet only a few minutes by cab from Times Square. The decor is minimalist. Service is timely and efficient, servers were courteous, but like the decor, words were parsimonious. Service was more akin to a... More
