The restaurant is beautiful, simple and modern. Service was very deliberate and persistent with small plates and chopstick holders being choreographed repeatedly through the meal. Loved having my tea replaced with a fresh hot cup a few times. Sushi/sashimi in the fluke and sea bass family was more tender than anywhere I've had sushi before. The food was very fresh... More

My craving for uni (sea urchin) finally reached a fever pitch so I googled sushi restaurants with uni near Grand Central station. With only 30 minutes until closing time, I ran and was immediately seated. Within 5 minutes the most delicious uni met my lips. They had just run out of uni from Japan, but their selection from Maine was... More

I have never been to a Japanese restaurant outside of Japan that can bean Sushi Yasuda. They are absolutely terrific and their sushi and sashimi are the best in business I have ever tired. The setting is very "Scandinavian" , somewhat minimalist, which makes you focus on their artfully prepared food even more. The service is great and they made... More

The dining room is minimalist but warm and not loud. We sat at the sushi bar (made reservations 3 weeks ahead) and had omakase, two types of saki served in charming metal pots. The sea bass appetizer was delectable and the most memorable of the three we tried. The sushi - I don't what to say, it was the most... More

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

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.
