The restaurant has separated the tables with greater distance which makes for more comfortable/safer indoor dining. The sushi is always top-notch. Wait staff was attentive.

Yasaka is probably the best sushi you can get in NYC. Always fresher than fresh, absolutely delicious--I could eat there every night. Soooo good.

Quality and customer service was excellent. The only issue was they do not allow you to Taylor the menu - all orders are right off the menu. - I do have to say the quality and taste was very good

The sushi is excellent. We also had the miso black cod appetizer for the first time, which was superb -- the cod practically melted in your mouth. Everything was delicious!

The sushi bar hasn't reopened yet, unfortunately. We were celebrating our anniversary and hoping to try it. We both did the small omakase, and we loved every bite. It was also more than either of us could eat. I'm not sure how one person could do the large omakase. Granted, we had the gyoza and the yellowfin tuna appetizers, but... :) The prices were really reasonable as well. This will be a regular place for us.

Their good standard went down unfortunately.
And the pricing fir drinks is too high for their ambiance and being a casual restaurant.

This was our first time here. The food was very good and the service was basically fine but the reception especially was just surly. It is small inside and lots of take out/delivery activity. But very good food, nice wine

I’ve been dining here for years, both lunch and dinner.
I’m from Japan.
Yes, if you spend lots of money, you can get better sushi here in NY.
Outside of Japan, their Sushi quality is very good for the price.
No one beats this sushi restaurant in Manhattan.
I highly recommend Chirashi for lunch, Omakase for dinner.

Small Portions. Though the fish was good the omakase had lower value fish -- better order the Deluxe Sushi if you're going.
Honestly not a very interesting restaurant -- more like going to a cafeteria.

Best value for amazing sushi in New York City. The best chirashi I’ve had and it’s only $20 for lunch with thick cut salmon, tuna, yellowtail, scallop, egg and more, plus ikura, all incredibly fresh. I’d recommend some a la carte sashimi(toro and chutoro) too. Miyabi set is great too. It’s the absolute best if you want quality sushi but don’t want to spend omakase money which starts from $100 per person usually in the city. Plus it’s also 2021 Michelin Plate, great for any occasion.

Yeah, I think as far as value for money goes, this is the best sushi you're gonna get. Sure, there are better places, but they also cost a hell of a lot more, so if you wanna eat some sushi in Manhattan at a reasonable price I'd totally recommend it. Be sure to get their ume shiso cucumber roll, it blew me away with how flavorful it is (despite not containing any fish, I think)!
