“the best sushi ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Going to this kind of places makes you realize hot ignorant we are about how to eat certain type of food. I enjoy the experience so much. If you are looking so save some expenses this is not the place for you, sped 600USD between 2 people but it was worthy. The fish was so fresh, our favorite were...EVERYTHING!

“Great sushi experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This probably the best sushi I have ever had. It was really great. A few negatives are the atmosphere is a little blah & you pay a pretty penny for the sushi. I actually left hungry but had spent $75 already. These chefs are awesome and make great creations. Would maybe do lunch instead of dinner next time.

“Solid sushi experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Ok, I consider that we are a veteran family for sushi, even my five year old, knows her salmon very well, we went to this place based on the reviews, at the beginning I was worried from the experience as the entrance doesn't indicate that the place is a wow thing, and the reservation experience was cold and rough.
receiving but as we started receiving the food we knew we were in the hands of pros, the sushi was fresh, delicious, and we enjoyed every bite of it.

The cost is on the high side, but again in NY, and such a fresh, selection of sushi like this, its worth the visit.

“Fantastic sushi, read the bill! No Tips!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Lunch was fantastic, we only had sushi and the fish was probably swimming a few hours ago - it was that fresh.
Service was excellent, but a few details:
1. We were asked to show up on time when I reserved and indeed, we did do that.
2. We were also told that we only have the table for an hour and fifteen minutes, and we left after an hour.
3. Tips are not accepted and will be returned as the bill clearly states.

As long as the rules are clear, we were happy to play along and enjoyed a delicious meal.

“Best sushi in NY so far.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I was @ Sushi Yasuda couple of years ago and upon my time in the city, last month, I paid a visit and for my surprise the food is still excellent. If you like sushi, that is the place. Atmosphere is a plus, no tourists. Would be better if you book in advance - 1 or 2 days - but must tell that we managed to get a table without having made any booking. Go for it.
