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.
I could probably devote my entire job to visiting all the Japanese places opening around the Valley these days. Even for an avid sushi eater like me, it's a lot to keep up with. How's a girl supposed to tell them apart? Well, short of going... More »
Casual but stylish, with sleek furnishings and moody lighting, Yasu Sushi Bistro reminds us of modern izakaya in Japan, where top-notch eats and premium sake are served with an extra helping of hipness. 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 to rich, fatty toro. But beyond the stellar sushi and sashimi, the robatayaki offerings, grilled over aromatic binchotan oak charcoal, are just as craveworthy. Homemade chicken meatballs called tsukune and bacon-wrapped scallops are a couple of favorites; on days we feel like splurging, buttery wagyu beef is worth every expensive bite. There are plenty of sushi restaurants around town that get the job done when we're craving a quick fix, but none of them really satisfies our jones for an authentic Japanese dining experience like Yasu Sushi Bistro.
Yasu Sushi Bistro is the single best sushi restaurant in the Valley. Serving the freshest sushi I've ever HAD, Sushi Chef Yasu creates masterpieces with every meal. Their menu is diverse, offering meats and fish prepared over Japanese coals that give a flavor you can't find elsewhere, and of course, the freshest sushi I've found here. Their manager, Ryan and his staff create a fun, relaxed environment. Hands down, this is my single favorite restaurant ever!
Yasu Sushi Bistro may look like a humble neighborhood spot, but fans come from across the Valley for a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine. Exquisite ingredients are chef Yasu Hashino's forte, from pristine seafood to buttery wagyu beef. As the restaurant name suggests, sushi is a big deal at this bistro, and if you snag a seat at the counter, you can't go wrong in Hashino's hands. Cold, briny Kumamoto oysters, silky kampachi, and beautiful ama-ebi (fried heads and all) are just a few of the... More »

Despite the name, sushi isn't the only reason to visit Yasu Sushi Bistro. This stylish, pocket-sized restaurant also happens to feature ultra-buttery wagyu, Japan's most sought-after, exquisite beef. Here, you get to grill it yourself at your table. Other top-notch dishes from the sumibiyaki menu -- items cooked over fragrant binchotan charcoal -- include sea scallops wrapped in bacon, and tsukune, homemade chicken meatballs coated in a smoky-sweet sauce. As for the sushi bar here,... More »
