Difficult to review during CoVid restrictions- definitely a great place in terms of value
they had very limited omakase, per server due to Covid, which was very good. The regular menu was good. Staff were very nice and attentive. No complaints -had a nice experience.

Great indoor dining experience as happy to see Sushi Yasaka is back! All safety precautions taken including food served in plastic takeout containers, at least that was our experience on NYC’s Day 3 of indoor dining.

This sushi restaurant is one of the best values for the quality of their sushi, The sushi is fresh and very high quality. The appetizers are delicious and the menu is varied. I would whole-heartedly recommend Sushi Yasaka to anyone looking for a great sushi restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Great food. We had Usuzukuri, sashimi combo, and nigiri combo, as well as sake and one other appetizer (mushrooms). Fish was all fresh and delicious. Service was good enough, too. The price was very reasonable. We'll definitely go back when we're in NY again.

The quality of the fish is SO good there. You need to book though to get a table (and even if you book be a bit patient)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. Sometimes I crave it so much that I just get in a cab and go--just don't try that at dinnertime because without a reservation there's no chance of getting a table. Freshest fish ever. Lovely waitstaff. They've even found a better Pinot Grigio, if wine is your preferred sushi drink.

Sushi Yasaka is a wonderful restaurant. I’ve eaten there about 15 times and I love it every time! I always get the lunchbox and I get tofu steak. It’s a real treat! Great value. I highly recommend it.
