    Reservations needed for I've-died-&-gone-to-heaven sushi! No creative rolls here. All about fresh, raw fish & for sushi purists. Order Chef's starred daily fish & definitely splurge for the Omakase!

    Food is worth every penny. Sushi matsu gives good variety for reasonable price. Uni is creamy. Sea scallop is shiny and fresh. Eel is plump and tender. The shrimp is sweet and firm.

    Trust the omakasa menu if you are not sure. But definitely get Uni, Freshwater Eel, Toro, Tamago and Salmon! We for okamasa with several pieces extra, 120 per person. No tipping here

    As a first-timer here, was a bit puzzled by the way things go here. The nice thing when you sit at the bar is that you can order your sushi "a la carte" one by one... Urchin is a truly special treat.

    Absolutely amazing quality. Do your best to get omakase at the bar and ask to have wasabi on the side so that you can control wasabi portions in your sushi (mine came a bit strong). Still an NYC fav!!

    The sushi here—arctic char, ebi (shrimp), uni (sea urchin), and ikura (salmon roe)—is an essential New York bite. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c

    They don't have any sauces or spicy mayo butt they don't need to. U have to try iit to understand. Deff a place if ur iin the city u MUST try to try sushi the way its actually meant to taste. Amazing!

    The toro and mackerel here is very very good. Defiantly try the omakase. It worth every penny you spent, although it would be a remarkable amount of pennies lol.

    Best sushi in the city - seriously. Sit at the sushi bar if you can and just go omakase (like prix fixe), the chefs are a great part of the experience. Always finish with the toro-scallion roll.

    Sushi sashimi entree $28, choose 4 sushi, 1 roll and receive 9 pieces of chef's choice of sashimi. Mixed seaweed salad with nutty dressing $9. Serene atmosphere

    You have to order omakase style. It's really the best way to experience the phenomenally fresh fish. Every single bite was delicious particularly the white king salmon, the fatty tuna and the oyster.

    Words fail to describe what i've experienced here. You will not be able to eat sushi anywhere else. Sit at the bar and order omakase. You can thank me later.

    Every roll was spectacular; yet the uni roll was the frontrunner. The uni was memorable with its sweetness wrapped in exceptionally tasty nori, finished off with the perfect hint of soy sauce salt.

    One of the most amazing sushi spots in NYC. Though it could be a bit pricey but go for the omakase at the bar. Do not be afraid to ask the chef questions they are always very knowledgeable.

    Everything done accordingly to Japanese traditions. Tip is included to your bill. Your regular spicy tuna and other rolls from "sushi places" will not be served here. However, very fresh sashimi!

    Reserve a seat at the bar of this bamboo-clad space to watch Tatsu and Mitsu—as they’re called by regulars—dispatch purist renditions of nigiri onto wooden trays in elegant, efficient movements. Read more

    Try the Sushi Matsu instead of the Omakase, it is much cheaper and if you ask for chef’s choice, you are essentially getting the same experience at a fraction of the price.

    Get yourself a seat at the sushi counter, ask for omakase, open your senses and experience some of the best sushi in the city. The minimal yet warm space contributes just as much as the food.

    Solid omakase - they give you a flight of the same fish, different cuts, which makes for a great tasting experience. Nice atmosphere that isn't too stuffy either. You WILL leave very full.

    Fine 1.4: High end sushi. Make sure you sit at the sushi counter & order omakase style. For a slightly cheaper option, I always liked Ushiwakamaru (on Houston/6th) - sit in front of Chef Hideo. Read more

    One of the best sushi places in NYC. in fact very Californian quality of the sushi (fresh and great selection of the fish) with NYC-paced service and Japanese politeness. Strongly recommended!

    It's all about the omakase, sit at the sushi bar and you will get world class eating experience; every bite is a explosion of textures and flavors; one personal favorites. Not cheap

    In a city that eagerly embraces each successive wave of Japanese imports, Sushi Yasuda remains the ideal long-running, low-key place to celebrate sushi as it’s meant to be eaten.

    For the best sushi experience in NYC, you've come to the right place. For the full experience get the Omakase, a personal dining experience with one chef who serves up piece after piece of pure bliss.

    Reserve a spot at sushi bar and go omakase. If you look at the menu at the bar you're a fool. If you like your sushi chefs highly opinionated, request to be seated at Chef Yasuda's station.

    Amazing flavors, I never knew sushi could be so delicious. Must tries: Uni, toro, Spanish mackerel, razor clam, unagi. I recommend starting with the combination Matsu and going from there.

    It doesn't offer the clichéd romantic restaurant trappings, but the intimate ambiance and sleek blond wood interiors put the focus where it belongs- on the excellent food and on your fascinating date.

    Amazing sushi..but it is very pricey. Also, the people here (employees & customers alike) are extremely pretentious and if you don't look even a little bit wealthy, you will be stared down.

    The fish... the rice... heavenly. Go if you're entertaining clients. Best when you're not personally footing the bill. Omakase style is the only way to go. P.S. The sea urchin is divine. Read more

    Yasuda is for sushi purists. Not the place for rolls. The variety of different fish is incomparable to any other sushi place in NYC. Red miso soup w clam is fantastic. Amazing!

    Undoubtedly the best traditional Japanese restaurant in the city - notoriously hard to get into at any reasonable hour without reservations - but so so soooo worth it

    One of the best sushi restaurants in NY. Their rice and Seaweed comes from Japan. There is no taste of bitter oil in Tuna, and every ingredient is exceptionally fresh.
  • Whitney F.
    Make sure you set up a seat at the sushi bar in advance. Even if you don't do omakase you can ask the chefs what they recommend and make your own omakase Magic.

    Make a reservation at the bar and ask to sit in front of Yasuda him self so he can learn you something. Very very expensive but unforgettable experience. Don't waste your time if you crave rolls.

    clean, classic, fresh - one for the purists. love the uni here, always plump and delicately presented, never with nori which takes away from the lightness of the uni

    Ordered omakase for lunch, and found a piece of hair in my sushi. And I personally don't like too much salt on my sushi (esp when it already comes with sauce). Uni from Korea tasted too bitter.

    Sit at the bar and enjoy this no-frills, beautifully prepared sushi (omakase of course). The uni and eel are both superb.

    The twenty-piece omakase menu doesn’t skimp on quality: Rice takes a bath in Japanese charcoal-purifed water, and fish is scrutinized for quality before being served.

    Don't order Omakase as they will bring you bunch of extra expensive appetizers like -cooked catfish -that you don't care..Select pieces that is recommended that day ..Way cheaper

    Best. Sushi. In New York. If you go though, you must make a reservation to sit at the sushi bar in front of Yasuda and say omakase. Otherwise don't bother at all.

    Incredible sushi. The freshest eel (sawani and anago), scallop, and uni. Call ahead and get a seat at the sushi bar and do the omakase!

    Best sushi I've ever had. Make reservations, read menu in advance, expect high prices and high quality. Great for business meetings and dates, but very busy.
