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)!

This was the most delicious, fresh sushi, and the prices were super reasonable. Some highlights were the Mayabi platter and the steamed gyoza! The salmon here is unreal. Will definitely be back!

In addition to the attentive and prompt service and the delicious food, Ssushi Yasaka showed us remarkable attention: when I overturned a glass of water, some on the table, but mostly on my coat, two servers promptly appeared with towels and quickly mopped it all up.

Hello, I would recommend next time someone makes a reservation at 2:30pm, you let them know kitchen closes at 2.45pm. We were left with 15 minutes to hurry up and order. We shouldn't be scheduling lunch when the kitchen is getting ready to close.

Thanks.

The quality is just always better, the fish always tastes very clean and never any of the funky off notes you might get with, say, earthy tasting eel elsewhere. Attention to detail on every part of your plate, and consistently superior results. Of course the restaurant is not as hopping as it used to be, because the owners have taken out all but like 8 tabes for maximum safety, yet the lunch special has remained very reasonably priced.

Love this restaurant. They need to step up their game keeping the place clean and clutter free. We were sat next to a stack of beer cases, which really detracted from the experience. Also, it would help if they painted the place.

We decided to take out and what a treat! We ordered one sushi lunch for $16.00 and another three roll combination for $20.00- we ordered yellowtail, tuna, salmon with avocado and salmon skin rolls...the meal was delicious and is now going to become to "go to" sushi restaurant. Highly recommend it.

Happy to have an excellent and relaxed environment for our first indoor dining experience. It was so nice to have a relaxed staff versus the other local establishments where they are so uptight even with all the Covid restrictions in place and being outside. Sushi Asaka was safe with protection and relaxed which made for a much more peaceful and trusting experience.

Thank you for making my wife's birthday dinner so enjoyable in the face of the safety measures you have put in. It was a real pleasure!
