    Yasuda regulars know their sushi chefs by name and send them Christmas cards. If you're not getting world-class omakase here, you're not at Yasuda. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    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.

    This is the place for focused and well-trained sushi lovers with its quiet and almost serious atmosphere. Chef and artist Naomichi Yasuda makes us crave the tuna otoro sushi. Read more

    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.

    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.

  • Dara H.

    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.

    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.

    The Sawani eel sushi is the perfect mixture of crisp, buttery, sweet, and salty. Mind blowing taste orgasm.. Seriously.

  • Payman B.

    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.

  • ZenFoodster Eats

    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!

    ZenFoodster Eats · January 10
  • Milena A.

    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!

    Milena Adamian · August 14, 2013
  • Adam F.

    Simply put, this is the best sushi I've ever had. Better than gari, sushi zone, and sugarfish. Omakasa or don't even bother.

    Make a reservation a few days early to sit at the bar. Omakase is a must (obviously). Uni is pretty damn good.

  • Travel + Leisure

    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.

    Expect authentic japanese food, but the waitress will look at you badly if you ask for Spicy Tuna or California Rolls...(!) The setting is sober but a bit too quiet and cold for a nyc restaurant

    Travel girl ✈️ · December 14, 2011

    Omakase? OHMYGOD.

    Hannah · June 8
  • Eryn B.

    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.

    Eryn Braue · June 3
  • Anna D.

    No words. Best sushi of my life. Fish is absolute butter. Sit at the bar and just let them create! Well worth the money.
