    All the dishes were fantastic! Would have liked one warm Dish for the omakase which is more typical in all the high end Japanese sushi bars we have dined at (other than the broth). But overall it was still an outstanding restaurant and will definitely come back

    The food is great, the service is outstanding because they went out of there way to find a charger for my girlfriends vape. The only issue we had were the customer next to us because they were quite loud but you can’t choose who sits beside you. I would recommend this place for good omakase! We liked the otoro nigiri, amberjack, black sesame ice cream!

    Service was below par for a meal experience like this. We were not offered water. Had to ask for refill of water and table was not wiped when plates were cleared. Napkin dropped on the floor and server didn’t notice until end of dinner. The server also didn’t have any comment on any of the sake on the menu. Food was overall fresh and good. I felt the chef didn’t take as much time to perfect each person’s sushi in presentation, unlike other Omakase I’ve been to. Overall still tasty food, but not good value given poor service.

    Tbh, I thought serving a wet tissue to mop hand for Omakase is a STANDARD service; however, it wasn’t served for us when we started the sushi session. Me and my friend have to eat sushi with chopsticks instead of hands because NO wet tissue served. Soon we noticed EVERY other guest was served a wet tissue except for us. We asked and we were told someone prefer to eat with hand and some ppl prefer chopsticks. It’s funny because we were not given any OPTION at the beginning. Our preference was determined based on the server’s assumption, funny. Good food but the service really annoyed me.

    I lived in Japan for 24 years and have been to many great top ranked sushi restaurants in Ginza, Tokyo. Yasu is fabulous. Best I have had in Toronto yet. All the staff are Japanese and are super friendly. It is nice small cozy place and the omakase with 17 different items is filling and delicious. I will remember my evening at Yasu and will definitely go back.

    Came for a birthday and liked how welcoming and courteous all the staff were, the food was beyond delicious and fresh, and we had the best seats in the house (in our opinion) at the L-shape end of the counter where the most senior chef was. He was incredibly thoughtful to the shape and size of the nigiri for each person and tirelessly explained the food so we could have a more thorough enjoyment of each of the 17 courses. Highly recommend at the $175 price point! We'll be coming back, Yasu!
