We had an amazing time at Sushi Bar Yasuda. Chef Yasuda is hilarious, chatty, and entertaining. The sushi was jaw dropping, it was so delicious. We had the omakase and after counting our pictures, we had over 30 different kinds of sushi that night! Chef Yasuda also made great drink recommendations throughout our meal. Yes, the restaurant is all tourists... More

We first heard of Sushi Bar Yasuda from watching Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown--Tokyo, about one week before we were leaving for Japan. We made a reservation, and since it was last minute, we were only able to get table sitting for the month of May. The location was easy to find, we just followed the directions posted on their website.... More

This is a great sushi bar in Tokyo. We chatted with Mr. Yasuda all evening and enjoyed great sushi. Go here if you like sushi and nice conversation!

This place is amazing. It isn't stuffy. Yasuda San is an amazing guy with a great sense of humor and takes pride in everything that he puts in front of you. He welcomes photos, questions and asks what your dislikes are, catering the experience to you. He makes fun of the restaurants like Jiro because they are too uptight and... More

Aside from making sushi, Chef Yasuda spent most of the night: 1. making snide comments about celebrity sushi chefs 2. how gimmicky the sushi was in Sushi Yasuda New York now that he is no longer part of it. 3. flexing his muscles to try and impress the diners. I agree with other reviews that the sushi was overhandled and... More

Great sushi tailored to your preferences with a twist from the chef. When I told Yasuda I wasn't a big fan of uni, he managed to make a fan of it in just 3 pieces! Overall very accessible for English speakers and reasonable price when compared to similar sushi experiences.

It's more than just sushi...it's a totally entertaining night. The sushi is fabulous, the rice is amazing and Chef Yasuda is awesome! The chef talks to everyone and he is so entertaining while he is educating you about sushi and fish. It was a wonderful evening with food, friendly people and good sake from the chef's home town. Well worth... More

The best sushi I've ever had. The chef is very friendly, chats with everyone sitting at the bar, makes sure you're having a great time. Every single piece of sushi he served was delicious. If you're looking for a traditional place with a stern faced chef and Japanese clientele giving you side glances - this is not a place for... More
