    The platters are wonderful. But also try the King Salmon sashimi!

    Daily fresh fish specials. Uni from CA or Japan. Garden salad $5, yellowtail jalapeño $13 & uni sushi CA $3.50 per piece. Never too busy and quiet enough to hear your friends.

    Absolutely fantastic sushi. The amber roll is amazing.

    Amazing lunch special: 3 Maki rolls for $12.50, and bento boxes are a good deal during lunch time. Eel salmon rolls and soft and have a great ratio of fish to rice.

    Had a great omakase - the sushi pieces were just the right size - not too big. Get the hitachino white ale to go with it!

    Fresh, high quality sushi and sashimi! Recommend the yellowtail usuzukari and chef's choice sushi/sashimi.

    The truffle red snapper, the seared salmon truffle oil sashimi is amazing and do not forget the Kumamoto oysters. I do not know why this place does not have a better rating. Please check in and like!!

    They have great service. One time, our table was a little wobbly, so our waiter leveled it for us.

    They have the most amazing mushroom soup I've ever had. Ever. I'm not joking. What a sleeper of a restaurant. The uni is also insanely fresh and the sushi is on-point.

    Absolutely outstanding service. Ordered the spicy special at the recommendation of the server. While it wasn't spicy, it was fresher than your average roll, and tastier too :-)

    They screwed up my order then wanted to charge $2 more to fix it. It's not even great sushi. I won't be back.

    Get the green tea crepe for dessert!! It has 20 crepe layers in the cake and it's just the perfect end to a meal.

    Get the Yuba Combo Platter (8 pieces sashimi, 8 pieces sushi & 1 roll.) That + the Yuba roll (so unique!) & the "sweet corn tempura" (aka Asian corn fritters) was the perfect amount for 2 people. Yum!

    Little germ among st.marks little Tokyo. Not your average Japanese, menu is tailored to higher end / rare fish. More different options than other cheapo /pseudo Japanese.

    This place had me at "yuba". I love the menu- unique dishes. Don't forget to order the yuba pouch under appetizers.

    The kampachi at Yuba is unusally soft this Friday (7/6) for a fish that is often chewy. This texture brings out delicate buttery flavor.

    Sit at the bar and ask Jack to serve you whatever he wants. One of the best sushi dinners I have ever had! Will be back again and again!!
