If you really enjoy trying new things prepared the simplest way you will love this restaurant. They have the freshest and most buttery fish in all of New York. They have many diffrent kinds of salmon, tuna and other fish that the chef prepares so simply and in perfect proportion. I highly recommend the restaurant for hardcore sushi fans or someone who wants to taste what high grade sushi should taste like. The decor is very clean and sterile and the service was excellent. Let the chef's suggestions for the day be your guide and enjoy! Expect to spend but it's worth it.

Went here with a friend and even though we were 10-15 mins late for our reservation, we were seated in the best spot in the house...right in front of Yasuda. He is the kindest, *funniest* old flirt of a man and he will blow you away with his quick wit while simultaneously serving up the BEST omakase selections that you will ever have. Fish is oh-so-tender and fresh, fresh as can be! I knew the quality was there when even the wasabi was impeccable -- truly special wasabi gives just a flash of spice that resonates up your nose but then is gone in an instant. One caveat: definitely choose omakase but be forewarned as you become so enmeshed in the food and the chef's deft hand that you forget to edit yourself. That happened to me when I walked out paying $70+ for myself (no drinks) and my friend, the frugal one, watched it and only paid $30. I don't care though. For experience and quality, no other sushi house can top Yasuda.

Sushi Yasuda definitely makes the best sushi with the freshest ingredients. We loved the prolific variety of fresh fish -- especially the sea urchin sushi. The orange clam is also very good. Order from the a la carte menu to get the most unique items. The prix fixe is better value but less extraordinary in the fish selection. The only caveat -- it gets pricey. We spent $35 and left feeling un-full.

Really expensive, but the best sushi i've had in this area... if your company is paying for it, IT'S THE ONLY PLACE TO ORDER FROM - it makes all other sushi seem like it's out of can.

I highly reccomend this place, the Sushi was unbelievable. The service was great, the people were nice and always there for any need. I sat at the Sushi bar, the fish was the the freshest I have ever had in NYC. The price is high but worth every piece...as for the menu its a sushi resturant so clearly it's not weird that there's nothing cooked.

Just ate at the sushi bar and was served by Yasuda himself. I could be wrong but he was ignoring us and bringing out the sushi at a very slow pace. Others sitting near us received their sushi a a much faster pace and were treated more politely. The fish was very fresh but Kuruma blows this place away.

To be honest, I was in shock when I saw their awkward sushi menu. I seriously considered walking out. They have so many rules in ordering sushi. It was an unpleasant experience. Sushi was ok, comparable to the price, and not special. I didn't see any other Japanese other than us.
