Yasu, which is proudly displaying an award from 2011, seems to have been falling on hard times. It is expensive for the quality of food served ...I ordered a Korean hot pot, which came with poor quality pickles from jars and cans apparently, some mushrooms, lots of rice, a sprinkle of chopped meat. The egg on top was extremely overcooked.... More

So unhappy to have gone to this place. I have seen this place for at least fifteen years and never wanted to go. I should have never changed from that. So bad. The food all comes at different times. One person might get soup, and several minutes later, your companion may get their salad. So, while the pricing is definitely... More

My dinner group went here on a Friday night in mid February. RATINGS: Food: 4 Service: 2 Decor: 3 Overall: 3 SUMMARY: Loved the food. Hated the service. COMMENTS: Sometimes I'm just in the mood for spicy and meaty Korean dishes and this place doesn't disappoint. I really enjoyed my Dolsop Bim Bim Bop, especially because they did it right... More

The Yasu Japanese Sushi & Korean BBQ has a rather complex name, doesn't it? Also, prices go over $20 an entree, so you'd expect that their food will be just as complex and exotic. Unfortunately, it isn't. Not only is it not exotic, but it is also some of the simplest food that is possible to make. As soon as... More

I usually go to this place for Sushi as well as Korean food. Great place usually but I went there on a Wednesday night and ordered a special Sushi roll. There was a dead fly in the middle of the sushi. I thought it couldn't be but it was. So grossed out, I left and will not go back if... More

I went with my wife and daughter on a saturday night and the place was not especially crowded. The wait staff were really courteous and very attentive. We got the Combo plate for 2 and there was a lot of food! The beef and the spicy pork were really good and the chicken was not that great. The sides were... More

We had dinner with a friend of ours in Yasu. The food was lousy. When we finished our dinner and were chatting with our friend, the waiter came and took our water glasses away. 10 seconds later, the hostess came and pushed a bottle of soy sauce across the table…literally from one end of table across to the other end...

Decent BBQ place. It's a bit on the expensive side...a bit more than Koreana, I believe. There was definitely something wrong with the vent that usually takes care of the smoke. The guy had to keep on replacing the grill, which was kinda annoying. But the food was good. Service was okay.

Great food, great times with friends. Some pretty good sushi options, and it looked like the meat eaters really enjoyed what they were eating. Waiters were great and attentive.

The title of this review pretty much sums it up, as I've only eaten here once and have yet to try their location in Cambridge's Porter Square area. Appetizers were also tasty, and orders were generously-proportioned for the money. While not overwhelmingly "authentic," the restaurant was pleasingly reminiscent of Japan.
