It was one of the best dinners we've ever had! Quiet atmosphere, good safety precautions taken following COVID guidelines, and really amazing and fresh food. Would 10/10 visit again.

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday. The sake pairing option was outstanding. Expensive, but well worth the experience.

Yasu takes a simple idea of cuisine and elevates it to the sublime. Incredibly fresh fish, perfectly cut and executed and the best sushi rice I’ve experienced. A broad array of geographies for fish presented in sequence by a congenial and charming chef at the bar.

Food was amazing. Really great interactive experience. The portions are small but there are 20 of them so come HUNGRY. Otherwise you likely will tap out by course 15

My first time at Yasu and wow I am speechless, from the service to the quality of the food, outstanding! Definitely worth the price and will be coming back soon, cannot recommend this place enough! What a fantastic experience. Just the right amount of food to satisfy but not overly too full. I am beyond happy!

The beginning was a bit off, could have been a bit more organized. Felt like a bunch of us were just standing there and not knowing what to do prior to being seated. Wasn't a lot of us, only a total of 12. I was allergic to two things so wasn't able to eat it but they were accomdating about it and offered to make something else which was nice but my boyfriend just ate my part. Overall the food was very good, I loved the whole concept. Would definitely recommend and come back in the future. Service was excellent as well.

I have been several omakase places in the world. Food in this place was absolutely great. But, I wish they can think about changing order of sushi being served. For example, some white fish was served after ottoro, which has strong flavor note. After eating those fish with high fat contents like ottoro, a subtle-flavor white fish like madai was somewhat...buried. I also had white fish like madai and hirame served with salt instead of soy sauce in Japan to bring up their own flavors more. I hope they consider about this. Anago sushi had soil or dirt-like flavor which could be prevented with stronger unagi sauce. Although all these mentioned seem a bit nitpicking but considering this is authentic edomae omakase course meal, thinking of little details matters. Overall, this is the best as you get, out of Japan.

INCREDIBLE. The best sushi I have had in Toronto (and I’ve had a lot of sushi.) the omakase experience was very special and the service was impeccable. The servers remembered everything - from the fact it was a birthday dinner, that one of us in our party was lactose-intolerant, and the sushi chefs were professionals and very good at what they do. The sushi was so delicious and worth every penny. I felt safe with the barricades between each dining party. A very special experience and I would highly recommend for anyone who enjoys sushi.

Yasu dine in service reopened in Aug since the pandemic lockdown. Food is high quality as usual. It is still one of the best omakase sushi place in North America.

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.
