One of the best sushi place in NYC, crowded but good.
The omasake doesn’t really give you the best things of the day. We saw the serving for omasake for different customers are different. We saw other customers served with fresh big scallops and fries crab leg, but we only got serve with common item like eel.. don’t think it really worth the money to spend on omasake, you will get almost same things (except for the toro) as a deluxe sushi set which costs only half the price. In addition, no need to get the bar table as the chef at the sushi bar has zero interaction (zero smile) to customer.. a bit disappointed with the overall experience.
Fabulous , excellent fresh fish. Service was exceptional. Definitely a gem on UWS.
Excellent food, everything was delicious, but then I found a bug in one of my last pieces. The server took it away and gave me more pieces of sushi, but I wish she just took my item off the bill because my appetite was ruined.
The best sushi on the Upper West Side, as usual. The quality is vastly superior to your usual, typical, sushi restaurant, and it only costs a few dollars more. Definitely worth the value. Sushi Yasaka is a delightful level of Sushi restaurant in between the ‘usual’ NYC sushi restaurant, and ultra high end Omakase only joints.
What a pleasant surprise on the upper west side. We enjoyed our sushi. It was fresh and the portions were generous. You definitely need a reservation on a weekend. It was packed at 1pm on Sunday
Great sushi place . Food absolutely delicious and service is very good as well
Enjoying every time when we dine there
LOVE this place
We found hair in sushi and rice. And they didn't change the all plate.
Sushi so fresh and unusual entree choices! Would definitely come back!
The food is always fresh and amazing. The staff is professional and quick. It’s a treat to dine here.
Really good sushi. Very busy. Waiter was nice but rushed. Forgot part of sushi order (minor and he took care of it quickly) and we had to ask for tea 3 times. Asked for it when we ordered right away and got it after third try when food was finished. Excellent fish. Will go back.
Always a great time and good food.
Service wasn’t up to their usual standard.
When everything gets served at the same time, it detracts from enjoying the food.
Great food and outstanding value, definitely will be back when we’re back on the UWS!
Great food at a great price. Attentive service. Good sake.
Excellent Japanese food, fresh raw fish and tasty cooked specialties—a real bargain for lunch and also priced fairly for dinner
Always get omakase. Better sushi , tastes fresh and a good
The food was great as always, but immediately after we finished, the host told us that they were busy and asked us to leave. They are always packed with reservations but customer service should still matter.
The sushi here is so good - like silk! Lively atmosphere, excellent service. Reservations recommended.
I hope open one more Yasaka in UES. It's worth to take a taxi from my area. Also wanted to have regular omakase during lunch but only mini-omakase is available. We enjoyed food and sake a lot with my family. See you soon!
Always amazing! Every piece of fish was fabulous!
I ordered omakase at the counter but I got all the pieces together in one single plate, which is not at all an omakase experence (even though you pay the same price of the omakase experience). The waitress said that it was too late (it was 9.45 PM; they close at 10.30) to have the chef preparing and serving each piece one by one at the optimal temperature.
If you do not offer the omakase experience after 9.45PM, write it clearly on your menu; if you close at 10.30PM, you have to guarantee everything on your menu, unless clearly specified.
Sushi Yasaka was amazing! Sushi Deluxe was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend to anyone seeking affordable yet delciious sushi!
Sushi delizioso al di sopra di ogni aspettativa a prezzo ragionevole per essere a New York servizio molto cortese e disponibile dovrò ritornarci sicuramente per provare altre specialità giapponesi
Awesome place & the food is superb!
Fantastic birthday dinner here. Food was amazing and didn’t break the bank.
Everything was sooo delicious!
There is great food all the time at Sushi Yasaka. It's reliable, delicious, not overly expensive and buoyant. We go all the time when we can get a table.
Love the food, we come here to eat every time we come into the city from NJ.
Authentic Japanese food and friendly service! My wife and I have tried almost every dish in the menu and everything is fresh and delicious and with a reasonable price. We particularly recomend the sushi and sushimi combos, the Salmon Donburi and the Tempura Soba! Find to get a table though.
I have been a very satisfied customer for many a time, but this was the earliest time ! Fun to see people coming in and in, singles, couples, and especially families. A wonderful place to celebrate anything. Thanks.
Terrific sushi in a lively atmosphere. Reservations recommended - this place is very popular!
Outstanding sushi quality and value. Fantastic $18 lunch special
Amazing food and very reasonable prices!
Wow! Very tasty -- every morsel! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
My boyfriend and I came here after seeing great views, and they all proved to be true. The place was packed on a Monday night. Our reservation was for 8:15 and they seated us right away when we arrived. The sushi was definitely very fresh. We ordered the negi yellowtail roll, the spicy yellowtail roll, eel and avocado, their special spicy salmon roll, and spicy tuna roll. It was an easy, quick, and absolutely delicious meal. One of the better sushi spots I've been to in a while. And you can't beat the price! All that for only $44 (with tax). Highly recommend!
