Another quite outstanding meal at Suhi Yasuda. For me, one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. While food is not inexpensive, for the quality, it is well worth it. Be sure to book in advance. Sushi Yasuda will not disappoint!

Yasuda is extremely, extremely good. It's a bright and clean atmosphere. By far best sushi I've had in NYC.

No reservations on line, you must call and speak to the fellow on the phone who is difficult to understand and perhaps a bit gruff. A phone call the day of the reservation is required to confirm or else, you are warned by the gruff man, you lose your table. Fair enough. But although the food is good it is... More

Sushi Yasuda is not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Book well in advance, and book a place at the bar. That way you can see the chrfs in action, and if you so order, which you should, they select your sushis and serve them one-by-one. Fabulous.

Yasuda offers an authentic Japanese sushi experience - with simple, elegant sushi and sashimi - very tasty and flavorful - in a wood-paneled minimalist decor. No california rolls here. The pricing is rather inconsistent. The lunch prix fixe is a great deal ($28) but I got the Omakase ("market price") and when the waiter asked if I wanted sushi, sashimi,... More

Pro's: - Nice design - High quality raw materials Con's: - Poor service. The female waiter we had was not service minded. Not acceptable for a place like this - Wine of very low quality. Just 2 different white wines on menu. My wife could not even finish her glass of pinot grigio.. - received the bill before asking for... More

Sushi Yasuda is an excellent restaurant. I have had omakase twice there, over the years, and everything is delicious, fresh, beautifully executed. The staff is attentive and discreet. It is a wonderful experience. It is pricey, but tips are not allowed, which saves you a little money.

Went back with my kids and was so overwhelmed to be able to share with them this wonderful experience! There are no words to describe this rice..just lukewarm and melting in your mouth. As they say sushi is about the rice..and what a rice! Not to talk about the fish and the rest. We are going back next week. They... More

I was close and I got a recommendation for this place. I arrived alone, no reservation and was offered to seat at the sushi bar. The experience is really Japanese; I ordered an Omakase (which could be Nigiris and could include sashimi). Everything was so fresh and delicious. They even had Tamago (Sweet Egg) which is hard to find in... More

The sushi is decent but doesn't come close to anything available on the West Coast not to mention Japan. The servers are arrogant and must have been trained in a gas station or not very nice diner. No class at all. A forgettable experience, not the first time.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
