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!
Always excellent food
The sushi here is authentic and the best in the neighborhood. And they have great lunch specials!
Excellent fish as usual!
Food is always good and consistent. Staff is very nice. They keep safe with COVID safety protocols
My go to for sushi on the UWS.
The food was delicious and I liked how the social distancing was set up.
The sushi and sashimi was very fresh and their lunch specials are a great value! Looking forward to our next visit.
No better deal for quality sushi in Manhattan. One of our favorite spots.
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.
Fabulous fish and a delightful staff
Overall I was happy with my experience, but it wasn't anything to write home about. The tempura roll was really good!
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.
Just remember this: Yasaka is the best sushi restaurant in NYC.
Great, fresh food for a very reasonable price! I will be back!
The staff is welcoming attentive and the food is of very high-quality.
Fresh and so good!!!
Indoor dining only but tables were well spaced and air filters in plain view. Sushi was first-rate, as good as ever.
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.
Omakase here is so delicious, and the tuna avocado appetizer is a must!
Best food and best value in our neighborhood
Very good food and service. Recommended.
Great local sushi spot! We found it to be the perfect date night!
Great sushi at fair prices. My family and I have been here a dozen times over the years and it's always a pleasant experience.
Very impressed with the Covid precautions that were taken at the restaurant.
This is real sushi. Sushi Yasaka never disappoints when it comes to both quality and service.
Hope the choice of food can be much more after the pandemic.
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!
Great food as always
Wonderful fresh sushis in the UWS, great choice of Japanese food, very friendly staff! (Delivery works perfectly too!)
Awesome! Great food, amazing value. Neighborhood gem!
I love this restaurant. However, think that if another customer is extremely loud the management need to let them know they're too noisy.
Awesome and fast service. Sushi was of great quality.
Great everything! Highly recommend the food and restaurant!
Excellent neat and clean. Highly recommend
Excellent fresh, good quality and good variety of sushi.
Great food. Our go to when we want some sushi 😋.
