Yasu - Sushi Bar
Please note we are cash free and accept debit and credit card.
Everytime I come to Yasu, I really enjoy it! Will definitely come back more often.
Yasu was honestly one of the best meals of my life. It is the perfect spot for an anniversary dinner or even a birthday dinner with a significant other. I can't stop talking about how amazing the meal was. Can't recommend enough.
Yasu was one of the best dining experiences my husband and I have ever had. Every detail was meticulous. Every sake pairing was thoughtful, every course was well explained, and every bite was delicious! We love Japan and we've had sushi at Tsukiji market. We are lucky enough to have had a few michelin star experiences. This sushi experience is absolutely on that level.
If you and your mate get the sake pairing, be aware that you'll be in the $500 range for your bill. This is incredibly pricy, but at this level of elevated dining, your experience will be one you'll never forget. I know I certainly won't!
Thank you for providing this experience for us in Toronto. We're grateful to have dined in such an amazing place.
Such a lovely experience! Dined solo and sat at the bar for a birthday splurge, was entertained by the food prep the whole time. It's definitely pricey but so worth it -- you eat 20ish different things and everything was so fresh (I enjoyed that many of fish and ingredients came from Canada, it speaks to sustainability and eating as local as possible). I also got the plum wine and later a hojicha. Looking forward to making this an annual thing!
Amazing sushi and awesome overall experience. Went here for an anniversary dinner and my fiancé said it was the best meal he had ever eaten in his life!! 5 stars
Best sushi ever, highly recommended to sit at the counter.
Food was great!
I just wish they have a menu explaning what we are having
Well orchestrated by the chef.
Will return next time when I go back to Toronto.
Amazong experience! Would recommend to anyone that wants a nice sushi experience
Absolutely one of the best sushi in Toronto. Every piece is perfect.
Just plain amazing, best food/experience ever!!!!! Thank you so much for all the awesom food
Was really looking forward to Omakase at Yasu and wasn't disappointed! The textures were incredible. Highly recommended.
It was a lovely and yummy dinner
Second time going and the fish is amazing as always. Love the variety and different styles and tastes
Overall, a great sushi experience.
Sushi was great, featuring a good variety of local/global fish. Decour was nice, if spartan. Restaurant is extremely small, which makes graceful service almost impossible. My wife and I were constantly bumped by the service staff as they (unsuccessfully) attempted to maneuver around us. The staff behind the counter were more professional, but the sushi presentations sounded a touch hollow and uninspired. The sushi itself, with the sake pairing, was quite good with nice variety. Based on my only previous omaska/saki pairing experience, I would say the sushi was great value, and the sake pairing option was average value.
My only previous omasake experience was at Shoshin, so it is natural for me to compare the two. Shoshin has a much nicer, roomier dining area, with some very nice high end decour choices. The service was also far better/more professional. Shoshin was way more expensive for the same meal “type” (with sake pairing and few extra sushi pieces at the end). While I would honestly have to say the sushi experience at Shoshin was better overall (freshness,presentation,expense of ingredients, etc), it was only about 10-20% better (depending on ones particular sushi preferences) as compared to Yasu. However, the cost for 2 people was appx half the expense at Yasu as compared to Shoshin.
Bottom line, if you want only the very best for a special occasion and are willing to pay for it...Shoshin is the place. If you want a very nice omasake place (which is by no means inexpensive) but with a less grandeous setting and not so graceful service, Yasu is the place.
Excellent service and food was outstanding and love the sake pairing.
Very cozy restaurant. Staffs are friendly and professional. For $135, I think it is a great value. I won’t say it is an exceptional sushi experience, but I definitely recommend it. It’s a nice weekend dinner spot. Will definitely visit again.
Excellent experience and food as usual. Love that they tell us where the fish comes from and provide more explanations for the more unusual offerings.
The perfect amount of food at the perfect pace. Intimate environment perfect for savouring.
I booked this place for my bday dinner and also as a date night with my husband. All the food was over the top and super fantastic! Me and my husband was very impressed with the chefs choices. It’s very clean, the people there are friendly, it was a perfect meal! The only down side was so hard to find parking, other than that everything was perfect.
Easily one of the best meals I've ever had - highly recommend.
Foods were outstanding and also it was the best sushi experience I have ever had. Waitresses were very friendly, helpful and created warm atmosphere. The price was expensive but it was worth every penny. I would definitely go back!
The food was very fresh and it could be an awesome dinner, but the server is really really busy. My husband did not have the napkin though we politely asked the server for twice. It was a birthday dinner, though I mentioned on the reservation website. All we expected is the little candle on the dessert like the one who also having the birthday dinner beside us, but our server forgot. Hope the restaurant can improve the service a bit.
Food was great, service was great. Chef Yasu was very friendly and personable. Great experience overall. Would definitely recommend.
The food was exquisite! I missed my omakase opportunity when I was traveling in Japan and this dinner simply bring me what have always been expecting for omakase Japanese sushi dinner. The taste, texture, temperature of the ingredients were simply the best of town.
Meh... food was okay. But a little too pretentious for my blood. Nothing really jumped out at me. And servers were not very accommodating.
The sushi was exceptional! We also enjoyed how they make sushi from the bar seats. However, even I got a confirmation call a week before the reservation to change some details and made a call a day before the reservation to ask a little favour, they did not update my reservation and asked the exact same questions when we arrived there. I asked for a candle for my husband's birthday a day before and no one left a note about it. It was not a big thing but they might need to communicate each other more. I saved a photo and video of my husband for the last course which was a dessert with a candle but it did not happen so we ended up no photo at birthday dinner. It was bit bitter at last.
Simply amazing. Small, cozy, and exquisite. Pricey but worth it.
- Attentive staff
- Fun, easy going atmosphere but with really high quality food and service
AMAZING! Love all the dishes. Will definitely go again. Highly recommend!
Food was generally good, but when that price range, I expected better food and more professional and perfection experience. For example, they didn’t even use a proper Japanese sushi knife. Also, we ate a fish organ (Fish testis) without knowing. We asked the chef, but the chef refused to tell before we ate it. I have to google it to find out. I mean, being exotic is cool, but you have to let your customers know and have options.
Some of the most interesting and highest quality sushi I've had, prepared right before my eyes by a masterful chef
Yasu doesn't just offer exceptional food but an incredible dinning experience. If you enjoy trying new things and are open to new experiences, Yasu is a must. I would definitely recommend sitting at the sushi bar to get the full experience.
My girlfriend like Japanese cuisine very much and she pays frequent visit to Japan before. I was nervous if she will like Yasu or not because her experience with Japanese cuisine in Toronto so far has been average. It’s our first time visit to Yasu, we both have enjoyed the food and setting very much. It’s difficult to book on holiday. We will definitely visit again and recommend it to friends.
Yasu was an amazing omakase experience. It is every bit as good as the sushi I had in Japan! I'd HIGHLY recommend it. You must sit at the bar and watch the sushi chefs do their magic.
Cause they have other round of table after, so, the food came out fast & we were eating kind of hurry. Try to improve the time range then we can more enjoy it.
Truly unique and authentic experience. A must.
Good food. Unpretentious. Very enjoyable meal
It was a very fancy experience!
