Sushi Yu 2

The atmosphere and service are excellent, but the sushi itself is terrible. I've ordered sushi from this place three times and have regretted it each time. The third, and final, time I went I did not feel well.

We live a couple blocks away & are so grateful for Sushi Yu! We usually get it delivered but have eaten in a few times. Food is fresh & tasty. I LOVE the sushi & personally prefer it over the hot items on the menu (which are still very good but I've had better). However my husband thinks the teriyaki chicken's tasty & always orders it (note, he orders it w/ "less onions, more of the other veggies" on the side 'cause they tend to load those onions on). The sushi is always yummy & fresh; they have a wonderful selection. If you eat in, be sure to check out the chalkboard on the wall w/ the specials - it's easy to miss & they come up w/ some cool ones! Great soups & salads. Service is attentive & friendly. Prices are what you'd expect from a mid-level Japanese restaurant - not dirt cheap but totally fair. Overall, quality food that we order again & again... :)

The fish is fresh and the service is good. I go there with my two year old and they make me feel comfortable. Delivery service is super fast. Good food and the price is not that bad.

When it first opened this joint was a treasure but it's been on a gradual decline since. Overly-accommodating and invasive service has replaced the quality of the food, and the place smells as if it's been wiped down in tempura oil.

I have eaten at many sushi places in during time an have to admit this is one of the best experiences I have had. First of all the sushi was exceptional and extremely fresh. We ordered a 10 piece Sashimi tuna, cherry blossom, miso, edamame, green tea and the lava cake for desert. The Tuna could not have tasted any fresher or better and was sliced in very generous proportions at least 1/2 inch thick. The cherry blossom was wonderful too. The green tea was a nicely brewed traditional flavored Japanese green tea. The edamame was also just picked fresh very generous portioned and tasted just like edamame should! The staff and manager was extremely friendly and very tentative. The restaurant and Sushi bar was also very clean and fairly new. I have to say this was one of my top experiences for any Sushi place hands down. I have read some of the other reviews and can't even fathom the negative ones. If you are anywhere close by and have a craving for sushi "Sushi Yu" is the place. From now on whenever we visit the San Francisco area we will be eating at Sushi Yu multiple times!

I've only ever ordered take out, but the sushi is not very good. Even the basic spicy tuna roll had a strange texture, and the spicy whitefish roll was not good. If you want to over pay for mediocre food, this is perfect for you, but otherwise it's worth the trip to the Upper West Side to get good food for the same price or less.

I usually stick with the basics "Cali roll and spicy tuna roll." Sometime i find that the sushi in other restaurants has stale rice and not fresh veggies and crabmeat. Sushi Yu II has FRESH INGREDIENTS, tasty rolls, and FAST delivery. I live a block away and they delivered in 5 minutes. It was quite shocking =). I also ordered the mochi ice cream and unfortunatly they don't have flavors like mango, but it was still good.
