Best sushi in NYC - hands down. Simple and fresh. Can't ask for anything more. You want to sit at the sushi bar for the best experience.

This is hands down the best sushi I have ever had. The entrance is not marked with a sign saying "Sushi Yasuda". There is simply the picture of the fish that you will see if you visit the Sushi Yasuda website. Once you find it, you will experience world class sushi and unparalleled customer service.

Had this place recoed by a local and we were not disappointed. The sushi was very traditional but absolutely perfectly made. Every piece was an artwork and the service was stunning. My only minus was the lack of wine list - they only had Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay and I normally prefer Riesling or bubbles with sushi but then I... More

One of the best sushi restaurants we have ever been to. The Blue fin tuna was excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality. I would highly recommend a visit if you enjoy sushi.

This is hands down the best sushi restaurant I have ever been to. The lunch deals are a steal, and I love the after dinner tea. My only complaint is the fussy reservations process, but I am willing to jump thru their hoops to enjoy the delicious sushi and the special atmosphere

A really bad waitress that could not explain how should I order with the special chef served menu. I ended up couldn't enjoy this special service. She also gave false explanation on the menu. I got very upset and frustrated. Food was good, especially the Toro hand roll. However, it is a bit over value without the chef served.

Me and my sons wanted to have a quality sushi experience so we booked a place at Sushi Yasuda. We sat at the sushi bar and had Omakase prepared by chef Mitsu. The selection of sushi, the freshness taste, seasoning with wasabi and soy sauce was excellent. It was a truly delicious and delicate experience. We highly recommend it.

....Better try the sushi bar than having dinner at table. where everything is much more ordinary. Anyway, food were good: various appetizers (mozuku-su, striped bass oroshi-ni, maguro tatsuta age, Chilean sea bass daj-ginjo that I recommend), then a classic combination of sushi/sashimi. No wine list available other than some (somewhat flavourless ) Pinot Grigio served at the glass. Staff were... More

This is a local Japanese restaurant that serves the best lunch in town. I had the miso soup, shumai, a california roll and great teriyaki chicken with rice. A bargain at 12 dollars. But more importantly, great quality and flavor.

The sushi is excellent and melts in your mouth. It is traditional sushi so don't expect unusual or complicated rolls. They are very strict about reservations and confirming your reservation the day before. Although I do not find them friendly or accomodating in any way, the excellent sushi makes up for the standoffish nature of the staff.
