This restaurant frequently called the best sushi restaurant in New York and after dining there, we understand why.
Our reservations were for the sushi bar which sits along the far wall from the entryway. There are also tables but the entire restaurant is fairly small. The blond wood which predominates gives the room a warm glow. With the subtle lighting and relatively quiet noise level, it feels like an oasis of calm.
We sat at one end of the sushi bar near one of four sushi chefs. Before we started, the chef in front of us explained this was traditional Tokyo style and we could order one piece at a time. Everything was available but the sushi was best we were told.
We left it to the sushi chef to suggest what to have next as he had very clear opinions about the order in which to eat each of the different fish, seafood and vegetable sushi in order to maximize the taste and everything he claimed proved true. We experienced an amazing taste adventure. His chatter about each item also provided its own entertainment.
We eventually learned the chef in front of us was the owner, Yasuda.
We came away with a new education in sushi and a conviction that if Sushi Yasuda is not one of the best, we would be amazed.

Really well done Sushi Restaurant that has to be one of the most expensive sushi meals I've ever had but I'm not complaining! A personal sushi chef that works exclusively to your order plus one of the most exciting collection of fish that I've seen makes for a grade A experience.

Best sushi I've ever had! Omakase can put you back a couple hundred dollars, but a regular meal in the restaurant is still doable. Omakase with Chef Yasuda himself opened up a world all new sushi - ever had tasmanian salmon? Don't miss the freshwater eel!

Traditional sushi at its finest. If you're looking for a very traditional style sushi restaurant, Yasuda is where it's at. The prices aren't terribly outrageous and everything is made to perfection. The rice, being the most important part of sushi, is excellent here and everything else follows suite.
Chef Yasuda retired a few months back from the restaurant, which is really a shame but the man's gotta rest right? I hope the restaurant will continue to hold the same caliber it has over these years.
