Salad was really good among others.
Food is very good. Sushi is fresh. Wonderful seaweed salad. Very quick service. Too quick?
Still got it! The fish was mouthwateringly fresh and delicious.
Amazing Sushi, very affordable lunch menu.
This is my go to place when I return to NYC. The food is consistently excellent. No matter what my guests order, they are equally pleased. Not a place to go to without a reservation.
Great food& value
One of the best Japanese restaurants serving Sushi in NYC. Perhaps the best value for the highest grade sushi in NY I would HIGHLY recommend !
Food was good, service seemed rushed, probably cause it was a busy time of the day, lunch, & some people didn't hv rsvp, they just walked in! All in all I will be back to dine & feast on good food! Thank You! Art work on the wall is beautiful!
Dollar for dollar, best sushi place in town. Omakase menu never disappoints.
The best sushi in this and many other neighborhoods. Sushi Yasaka never fails to please. Their fish is the best. Their attention to every dish is obvious in presentation and taste. Miso soup, tempura vegetables, salmon teriyaki, all excellent. We are fortunate to have Sushi Yasaka in our neighborhood, a short walk for us.
Excellent food, good value
Unfortunately, we had a mixed dinner experience. It started off well with the grilled shrimp and avo salad, and the eel avocado roll was quite good. The soft shell crab roll was extremely disappointing, however. Some of it tasted actively bad, like the chef had included the bad bits of the crab, and the rest was mostly tasteless. The restaurant was a little too noisy for our taste as well.
The appetizers are good. Some of the sushi not that fresh. Overall is just ok.
The sushi is very fresh and tasty.
This little sushi place is a great bang for the buck! I would come back here as an alternative to higher priced places such as Sushi Nakazawa.
great, as usual. the foos is always a surprise. the ambiance is very good and the service excellent
We both had the omakase sushi dinner, and thought the quality was uniformly excellent.
Made reservation which was essential as the restaurant is very busy. Waitress took our order quickly and food was served fast ... meal was delicious. Waitress never came back to our table to ask if everything was good and/or if we needed anything. Not usually here on the UWS but this was a good choice.
Long waits and high noise levels don't make up for the good food. Can't understand why this place is so popular.
Good sushi and tempura! Restaurant is a quite noisy though and packed with people.
We had reservation at 10 pm and arrived at 10:15 because the show we attended before finished at 10 pm. We were rushed to the table and the restaurant was quite full, including the sushi bar. The sake list was difficult to read with sake by the glass at 10$ each and bottles up to 65$ for 720 ml, quite unusual size for sake. We ordered a bottle and the sake was basically undrinkable and at 65$, quite overpriced. We ordered appetizers and sashimi a la carte and the presentation was below average with average quality of the fish. At 10:40 pm the sushi chefs disappeared all of a sudden and at 10:50 pm the restaurant was empty and basically ready to close. We asked for the check (233$ total without tip) and left with no intention to come back. The worst Japanese restaurant we have been in the last 30 years in NYC and we doubted that this venue is really run by a Japanese restaurateur.
The sushi is the best in NYC! I love the authentic feel, the freshest fish and the most delicious appetizers!
Great as always. Very fresh, well prepared sushi--mostly Japanese chefs. Good selection of items on the menu. Excellent, very well run place.
Sushi Yasaka is *my* neighborhood sushi joint which I adore for its inexpensive, beautifully prepared & very tasty, more-than-enough food for lunch deal. Now it's going to be my destination for celebration! My BFF wanted to have a culinary adventure for her birthday dinner. Having never eaten sushi, she decided that would be the perfect culinary exploration - and thanks to Sushi Yasaka's excellent chefs and gracious staff it was! Gorgeous platters of gleaming sushi were beckoning to us from the surrounding table but we ordered conservative dishes, because 1st time for sushi: Tempura Appetizer, Rainbow Roll, Fluke Ume Shiso Roll and Yaki Salmon Ikura Cucumber Roll. We thoroughly enjoyed it all! Our generously filled glasses of a slightly dry rosé were a perfect accompaniment. Since we're were celebrating, we had to have dessert and choose the mille-crepe cake with a green tea cream filling. The cake was decorated with a dusted jelly and a red-bean topping. It was beautifully-plated with kiwis, strawberries and whipped cream plus a a scoop of green tea ice cream that had a birthday candle waiting to be blown out. No question that our wish was to come back for another sushi adventure!
Very fresh small friendly
We love it
It's an excellent sushi place and so it's very busy. The value is good and the food superior. Too noisy and rushed though.
Excellent good. Neighborhood gem.
We had sashimi, soba and udon and enjoyed them all. The service was efficient and professional.
For me, Yasaka is the best sushi restaurant in Manhattan. The freshness of the fish--even on a Sunday, when I would never dare to eat fish at any restaurant--is perfection. The menu is very varied; the only question is what to order. I usually end up with the Sushi Platter Deluxe and end up stuffed with silky slices atop perfectly vinegared rice, and a generous piece of uni when it is available. I love this place. Be sure to make a reservation though--it gets very crowded. And when it's crowded, it's noisy. Just focus on the food.
Ease of seating, timely honoring of reservation.
This is my favorite place! mushroom app is soooo good.
Almost at the level where you don't want to tell anyone about it. Really really perfect sushi and sashimi at very fair prices. Don't go all out with the rolls--they're good, but the sushi and sashimi are exceptional.
Excellent, authentic and high quality sushi at a reasonable price point.
Delicious sushi and great service. Very much enjoyed.
Overcrowded , loud and the service was less than stellar. Small portions.Overall good quality sushi, big didn’t love the ambiance.
Great value and excellent fresh sushi. A bit noisy but it did not diminish the experience.
