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.

The quality of this sushi sets it apart from most other NYC sushi destinations. Price is OK -- a bit pricey for the portions. But it's worth the quality and taste. The atmosphere is also very nice, with zen-like bamboo interior. The neighborhood is kinda dodgy, but pay no heed b/c the restaurant is like a gem within. The Chirayashi(sp?) roll is very tasty!

This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've been to. Amazingly fresh, buttery fish. Great presentation and service, as one would expect from a restaurant at this level. Expensive, but well worth it. It was a bit noisy when I was there ( a Tuesday night around 7:00pm), but that didn't distract from the evening's focus on the amazing sushi. I will have to get back to this place soon!

If you want the total top class sushi experience in nyc, look no further. This is the place. The only place in nyc that I have experienced comparable fish is at Kuruma Zushi, but they are not as hospitable. Now, Sushi Yasuda is elegant, wide open and spacious, very modern and the service is impeccable. The fish... Sushi Yasuda has achieved the highest levels of food art. It is satisfying not only by being elegant and classy, but spiritually transcendant as well- the most important thing in life, really.
