    Sushi is always so fresh and delicious here, but service is a bit lacking. Have to ask for water refills and any other requests. They didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert and handed us the bill. The staff are very nice, but they’re definitely trained to get people in and out ASAP, as it is a very busy place, I feel like they need more wait staff. They have these dividers in the restaurant and I requested to not sit next to one in my reservation and the request was not fulfilled, so I was a bit annoyed. Also, they forgot to give us a candle on our cake. It’s not a $$$$ restaurant, but even so I would assume basic requests should be handled correctly.

    Fabulous! Our first return visit since we moved out of the neighborhood eight years ago, and it's still marvelous, even better than we remembered. Everything top quality at the peak of freshness, beautifully presented with no nonsense, just pristine sashimi, classic sushi, crunchy airy tempura, lovely salads, and a wide selection of other treats. And the prices are still so reasonable. We'll be back soon and often.

    The food is consistently excellent. The service is amazing considering how small the place is. The tables are close and we were next to rather loud talkers. Still the best in the neighborhood and was happy to get a reservation on the same day.

    Stopped here after a show at the Beacon. My friend ordered the sushi deluxe and I ordered the spicy maki combination. They were both decent but nothing special. We ordered green tea upon being seated and it didn't arrive until after our food. Restaurant is small and unassuming.

    My Sashimi Deluxe dinner at Sushi Yasaka was excellent. I am a bit of a snob with Japanese food and have been to Japan six times over the years. I usually only go to Japanese restaurants owned and run by Japanese. But the quality and quantity of the fish was so much better than what I had a few days earlier at Sushi of Gari, and half the price. Highly recommended.
