Phoenix New Times' Description

Sushi doesn't get any better than the sublime offerings at cozy Yasu Sushi Bistro, which reminds us of the hip eateries we'd find in Tokyo. Behind the counter, chef-owner Yasu Hashino works his magic with impeccably fresh fish, including interesting specials of the day like sanma (mackerel pike) and ankimo (monkfish liver pate). The menu also devotes a whole page to sumibiyaki, charcoal-grilled dishes that get their distinctively savory fragrance from an expensive kind of Japanese charcoal called binchotan. Don't miss the smoky-sweet grilled tsukune (homemade chicken meatballs), or creamy sea scallops wrapped in bacon.

We love to snag a seat at the tiny sushi bar and let chef-owner Yasu Hashino guide us through plate after plate of delicacies, from plump, briny Kumamoto oysters to silky mackerel... More >>

    Try the Tsukune! Chicken formed into patties, skewered, slathered in savory-sweet glaze and grilled until the outside has a smoky, caramelized sheen - it's one of Michele Laudig's 100 Favorite Dishes!

    Sit at the sushi bar and eat whatever Yasu suggests. Hands down amazing!!!

    U gotta sit at the sushi bar and let Yasu make whatever he wants. You'll get 5-6 rounds of the best sushi you can have

    Make reservations to get the best table choices - awesome ambience! Just enough chill and swank with the smooth balance of cozy and romantic. <3

    "Omakase." Chef's choice. If you have time to enjoy it, are feeling flush, it's a slower night and the owner is working, take one of the 4 sushi bar stools and let him Wow you! 100% worth it.
