I'm not a sushi aficionado, but know Yasuda is a cut above most of the places I've been. Impeccable service, fresh food and a quiet atmosphere make it worth the money.

After read all the good reviews I decided to come here. Location is really nice and suggestive, great staff! But the menu is not so clear, and portions are so small. Had tuna sashimi and tuna rolls. Sashimi was good but only 3 small pieces. I think that in the tuna rolls there was wasabi inside and i really can... More

The best sushi I've ever eaten. Interior is really Japanese. You have to try the sushi Uni, it is really wonderful and not so easy to find elsewhere.

In a city seemingly dominated by sushi restaurants, Yasuda stands above the rest. Located on a non description street in midtown close to Grand Central, Yasuda is flanked by two other Japanese culinary greats, Sakagura and Soba Totto. My first experience at Yasuda was omakase at the bar. Each piece of fish was presented beautifully, unpretentiously, very bite delicate, flavorful,... More

I enjoyed the food so much that I have to give it 5 stars, regardless of the not-in-good-mood waitresses. You have to reserve and be punctual, you're very well welcomed at the door and quickly seated. But then, waitresses (maybe they all had a bad day...) don't treat you the way you expect from Japanese culture, but more like they... More

Absolutely the best Sushi I have ever had! Literally some of the fish will melt in your mouth! The Uni was my favorite, and we all did the Omacase menu, which is where the Sushi Chef will choose his favorite's and they will keep bringing you piece's until you say enough. It's so great because I tried things I normally... More

Great service at this restaurant, typical of the level hospitality provided by most Japanese restaurants. The sushi was amazing, we had the omakase menu and it was an easy choice. Highly recommended for those who highly fond of sushi.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've been to. The decor is SO cool, service is impeccable. We also had flash fried tuna bites that were AMAZING.

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.
