“It's that good!”
Review of Yashin Sushi

Description: Yashin Sushi is a modern Japanese restaurant centered on "Without Soy Sauce". Of course we can offer the diner as much soy sauce as he or she desires, but our philosophy is that the taste of the fish should be emphasised, not the taste of soy sauce. That is why we brush each piece of individual piece of fish with the right amount of soy sauce and add an accompaniment that will enhance and complement the flavour of the fish without taking it away. As well as our omakase sushi, we also serve a range of authentic and exclusive dishes, such as prize-winning premium Hida Wagyu and chargrilled eel freshly prepared on site.

“It's that good!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is very smart food, presented simply and beautiful. If you love expertly crafted sushi, sashimi, maki and root vegetables then this is the place for you. All of this is complimented by a thoughtful drink, sake, wine menu.

It is pricey but you get what you pay for. There are quite a number of sushi chefs, an open kitchen and a few food runners and a couple other women that oversaw our meal. I don't think the quality needed this many gatekeepers, but it did ensure we were looked after quite well.

I prefer plates removed when everyone at the table is finished and this procedure seemed to happen too often and our service felt rushed.

Dessert is classic Japanese, we skipped it.

But we'll be back for amazing Omakase, Prawn Maki soon!

“Really, really bad”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I was promised "the best sushi in London", so what a disappointment. While I personally don't particularly like fusion Japanese, I was prepared to be pleased. My miso soup was thin, cool and uninspiring, and the sashimi was a disgrace - half of it uneatable. Various toppings attempted to disguise the fact that the fish was definitely not fresh. Expensive, poor service to boot. To be avoided at all costs

“Specialist sushi..without the soya sauce dip”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is not your everyday sushi bar..the prices will remind you soon enough. Run my master chefs from Japan and Italy(!), I thought it was going to be a fusion experience...but no..the sushi and sashimi dishes are distinctly different and are meant to be taken slowly to be savoured. Even the sake selection have been carefully chosen.
Try to sit at the sushi counter.those without reservations will probably end up in the basement seating and miss all the action.
Well worth the premium pricing if you know all about your sushis.

“Best sushi in London, period”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for best quality japanese and dont mind the price so much, look no more. Forget about Nobu and similars, this is it. Simple and effective, small place with extremely personal and delicate service, Yashin has a very decent wine list but shines and surprise with the high end quality sushi. You have to try to believe.

“The new benchmark for Japanese high-end restaurants”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Yashin is unique. A notch above Zuma, nobu and roka and also different from his competitor. Their menu is a celebration of Japanese food... Worth a visit and worth the price.
