By far the best sushi in north east Phoenix. Although the menus, between four or five different ones, may seem overwhelming they are actually only a single page each. About the same as the the multi page menus at most restaurants. But you should ignore the menus and order the specials or what your server recommends. You will rarely be... More

Excellent ambience, not too large, with excellent service, and food that was unique and equally delicious. Prepared by a true artisan. Great drinks. Price of fair for the service and quality.

We have been coming to this place for a while now and Chef Yasu continues to wow us with his creativity. I recommend omakase dining experience where Chef Yasu takes your taste buds on a journey. This is truly a unique experience here in the Valley.

We absolutely love this place. Food is amazing, especially all the different sauces that come with the dishes. Service was great. Lizette is great. But it is very cold in this restaurant. Cold air blowing on me even if said it twice. Bring a jacket.

Best Japanese food in Phoenix As recommended by the waiter I ordered a Japanese premium whiskey which when delivered had only 1/2 inch whiskey The waiter explained that was all there was and added that I should, nevertheless try it. Without liquor the average cost of our meal was $60.00 per person.We ordered many dishes to share. With the exception... More

We had trouble ordering dishes to share so waiter did it for us. One at a time 18 dishes were presented to us, first light then hearty. Imaginative presentations, unusual variety, all delicious. Expensive but within limits we'd set. A truly memorable meal.

Wanted to take my 90 year old mother for a nice lunch yesterday. We had eaten dinner here several years ago. Food was good then but service was poor. I figured at lunch, how bad could it be? Answer: really bad. We arrived a little after noon. There were exactly three other tables with a total of ten people in... More

We had gotten carryout from this place a few times but never dined in. The dining room is very small so I would recommend reservations. We made reservations for four a few hours in advance in January 2016. We were seated immediately. We were greeted shortly thereafter by a pleasant enough young man but not very service oriented. He called... More

Yasu is consistently awesome. Service, flavors, creativity, and presentation are all excellent. Before dining here you should understand this is not your run of the mill Ra or Sushi Brokers. The menu is always changing depending on what fresh fish / ingredients are available. All of the seafood is flown in fresh (never frozen) and is consumed within 6 days... More

We've been here for lunch several times, food was tasty, somewhat small portions. But dinner is a total rip-off: expensive entree was an appetizer portion, any side dish is a la carte for all entrees. And whether for lunch or dinner, the kitchen is extremely slow---our appetizers were brought with our entrees after a half hour wait. ( Maybe this... More
