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

Sit at the sushi bar (request Yoshi) and let Yoshi make you whatever he wants...the sushi comes out one piece at a time as he explains each fish to you. Truly the best sushi we have ever eaten and the best service we have had at any sushi restaurant. The fish is in one word..incredible. You will not find this... More

Over the past several years I have been luck enough to eat here several time. Most of the time as the sushi bar. Tell the chef what you like and be prepared to enjoy--sublime. He reminds you not to use soy sauce on the sashimi. Instead use the sea salt. The sashimi is so well presented. The sushi was very... More

It was 1.30 p.m. when we came to the restaurant, not having made a reservation. A friend of ours recommended this sushi/sashimi restaurant and if possible a seat at the bar. We were very lucky to be seated 15 minutes later, after a 'sorry, but there are no table available'. Maybe because of the time we had a bit of... More

Went up to New York during a quick "tour" of big cities / landmarks of the US with family visiting the US for the first time. After scouring restaurant reviews on multiple websites, we decided to come here. We all DO love sushi, have eaten it in locations across the world, and have had it about as fresh as can... More

My second visit to Sushi Yasuda - it is by far the best sushi place I've ever been to. Do ignore the menu and do not order any specials: just nod to sushi master standing in front of you, potentially indicate what you do not like, and here you go - for the next hour or so you will get... More

The food is fresh and simple. The quality is amazing. If you are in NYC and want to try real, authentic sushi please try Sushi Yasuda. You will not be disappointed.

Yasuda is a real sushi place, without a big eye catching show going on - one could even say the place is a bit zen in its perfection to lead ones attention to the quality of the food. Besides Sushi and Sashimi there are not too many other food items which you may find on the menu ... However this... More
