    Great Place to Grab a Casual Sushi Lunch/Dinner!

    The quality of the sushi is great and I haven't been disappointed thus far. The style of the special rolls is done close to "futomaki," which is a larger, thicker roll (FYI for those who are complaining this is not how sushi should be, it's an actual style..) It is delicious and adds to the bang for your buck. Yes, it is not a typical sushi place that serves the typical sushi; you can judge that from the waitresses dressed in kimonos and the way the rolls are presented. These are factors that place Yuka above some of the competition and that patrons seem to enjoy. That being said, it gets crowded pretty quickly and I have usually had to wait during dinner time.

    Poor fish quality and rolls made for Shrek

    I read the first few reviews and was impressed by what I saw but this place was the pits. My boyfriend and I order sushi once or twice a week from UES restaurants but wanted to try something new. We practically forced ourselves to try each of the rolls in hopes that one would be better than the other but they just kept getting more unappetizing. Not only did the fish not taste fresh but the rolls were HUGE. A typical sushi roll should have about eight pieces but these were fat and cut into six gigantic pieces which is usually a sign of bad sushi anyway. We should have been more conservative when ordering our first time but how can you mess up a spicy cruncy tuna roll!?!

    My Favorite AYCE in NYC

    I try to go whenever Im in NYC...Nothing fancy just really really good fish, always fresh & succulent. I have never found the fish to be less than fresh, so I don't know about people who have...The rice has a nice taste at the perfect temperature...No fancy rolls, just really good fish & rice that melts in your mouth...I almost had to go to the ER I ate so much one night.

    Yuka Sushi (NYC)

    After reading many reviews on Yelp, my wife and I decided that we had to eat at this place when we went to NYC. I was so excited. The Place: Nothing fancy. Pretty much a whole in the wall but not really an issue The service: They were pretty prompt and friendly. The food: We were so disappointed!!! The sushi did not appear fresh. All of the different rolls appeared to taste the same. There was definitely very little fish in all of that rice. I am a huge sushi eater and normally I can eat 5 rolls by myself. My wife and I barely finished 5 rolls together. We were just forcing them down so we would not be charged for any left-overs. I actually felt nauseous right afterwards. We would not recommend this place to anyone nor would we ever come here again. And on top of that, its actually over-priced for the value.

    Sushi guru rates Yuka # 1

    Not only does Yuka have the most reviews on the upper east side, they are still ranked # 1 in salmon sashimi. After consulting with distributor's who specialize in the asian seafood market, Yuka has the most succulent fish that is out of this world.

    Great Sushi Spot!

    All you can eat, really means ALL YOU CAN EAT. Great sushi, very friendly chefs. An Upper East Side staple that is always the best.
