Great Omakase. We sat at the bar, and really enjoyed seeing the dishes being prepared. Great selections - over 20 courses.

Wow! Yasu did not disappoint and also topped all the other sushi places I've had so far. This was my second time having an omakase menu (Chef's choice) and first time at Yasu.

Must try

We spend a wonderful night at Yasu, this place is very tiny but cozy. food is tasty, the display is nice, the fish is very fresh. The lady even show us pic of Tuna Akami, ChuToro and Otoro and explain them. Alcohol price is reasonable. Overall, wonderful experience.

Come for the fish, stay for the rice. Both are excellent at Yasu, as is the service. The noise level allows for civilized conversation with your friends. Mostly bar seating. We always come back.

Delicious food in a quiet but not overly formal atmosphere. Very interesting to watch the chefs prepare food at the bar, would definitely recommend it over table seating. The sake pairing was also delicious and complemented the meal well. There are about 20 courses - most consisting of a single nigiri (though the tuna serving came with 3 to highlight different levels of fat content) - and 5 sakes in the pairing, so most people should be approaching full by the end of the meal (though I personally left still a little hungry). The price is prohibitive so save this for a special occasion.

An absolutely delicious omakase experience. Of course, very pricey but absolutely worth. Fish has been transformed to the level of art. If you don't know what umami flavor is, you will after this.

Excellent food and an amazing experience. Attention to detail by the chefs were second to none. Brief explanation of where the fish came from and type once it was served. Definitely worth the money. Recommend to sit at the bar as it adds to the experience watching the sushi being prepared.

We went for my husband's birthday, we had a great time. The lady at the front door was not nice at all. We hope it wouldn't be like that for the whole night but the chefs were great and food was amazing. They need to improve the wait staff.

2nd time here. Still fresh ingredients. If you are looking for a place with nice and fresh sushi, it is a good place to go. Not outstanding tho in terms of the types of fish and the rice underneath is not sticky enough so almost every single piece is loose and does break. Overall it is good for a causal dinner for couples, family and friends.

Excellent place for Omakase. Lots of exotic and interesting options for fish beautifully presented and some flown from Japan. The Sushi Chefs are professional, friendly and entertaining through the entire omakase experience. Servers are also very welcoming, warm and friendly. Great vibe and crowd at the sushi bar with everyone enjoying the experience and having fun. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and experience you getting. Highly recommend.

Phenomenal experience - likely the best dining experience of my life and definitely the best I’ve had in Toronto (in 10+ years being here)! It was a sublime experience that had us feeling relaxed and in an exceptional state of mind during and for a while afterward. The food was outstanding as was the experience of watching our food be masterfully prepared in front of us. Plus every dish was simply delectable, and the absolute perfect amount was served. We’ll definitely be remembering this experience for a while to come! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

It was definitely an amazing experience. The nigiri was fresh, though some pieces were a bit repetitive in taste and texture. I appreciate the hard work the chef and staff put into creating the food as well as the overall atmosphere. The service was amazing. Would definitely recommend someone who is able to afford this experience to at least try this once

Of the omakase options in Toronto, this is one of the cheaper ones, with Saito being $500 per person. Very cozy location with an intimate experience that is both delicious and informative.
