I was running late so i called and informed them and they insisted i come before 10 in which i did. As soon as i sat down the waitress told me about 5 times within 2 minutes that the kitchen...

Dined recently at Shushi Yasuda. Big reputation, but left disappointed. Ordered Omakase. Of about 15 pieces only a couple were particularly interesting or note worthy. Most were standard fare like you would get in a typical sushi assortment. Fish was of varying quality. Uni had a very strong iodine taste along the lines that you would find at a lesser... More

Don't go late at evening: the product they use is fresh and delicious, and probably that's why some of the items on the list are not longer available after certain hour. It's very simple, but you notice you're eating really good fish. Around 100$ per couple (minimum). With no drinks. But it's worthy.

we have been going here for many years - need to plan ahead make reservations you get a number and you cannot hang around more than the time given to you as they have two lunch sittings - its worth the process - the food fresh - delicious and the presentation impeccable

Sushi is everywhere now, from super-expensive formal dining to inedible supermarket offerings and a host of numbingly mediocre places in between. Sushi Yasuda is the best sushi experience this side of Tokyo. Simple elegance in the dining space decorated tastefully with light bambo. Superb rice and delicious fish. Just marvelous. Make sure to try this one when you are looking... More

This is the best place to have omakase by far. The freshness of ingredients is unique. The sea urchin, salmon tuna mackerel were divine. Interesting sake list as well. Will definitely visit soon its worth every dollar

Best sushi we have ever had. The quality is exceptional. Very simple yet exquisite sushi and sashimi. Omakase (chef's tasting menu) is recommended. To leave full the average cost is 200$ per person.

Absolutely oustanding sushi and sashimi. The freshest by far. Even the salmon tasted like Toro. Sit at the bar and order omakaze from Yasuda himself - you won't be disappointed. Should be rated 6 stars at least. Not inexpensive but quality comes with a price. Will be hard to have sushi anywhere else now. Very highly recommended!!

Ok. It's expensive. Like really expensive. But if you are into sushi- this could be on your list. The omakase was interesting- plenty of variety and tried some fish and sea creatures I haven't tried before. Service was attentive, but lacked the friendliness that would have been nice during an adventurous meal.

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!

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.
