The restaurant was founded in 2000 by its former chef, Naomichi Yasuda of Chiba Prefecture, who returned to Japan in January 2011 to open a new restaurant in Tokyo. It is owned by Naomichi Yasuda, Shige Akimoto, and Scott Rosenberg. The current chef is Mitsuru Tamura.
In 2011, food critic Eric Asimov of The New York Times took the restaurant to task for serving bluefin tuna, which he reported was severely overfished and in dire straits, with its Atlantic population estimated to be down almost 90 percent since the 1970s.
In 2000, restaurant critic William Grimes of The New York Times gave Sushi Yasuda three stars, and in 2001 he called it “sublime.” In 2011, Eric Asimov of The New York Times gave it three stars, and Bloomberg gave it two and a half stars.
In 2013, Zagat’s gave it a food rating of 28, the second-highest in the East 40s, and rated it the 9th-best restaurant in New York City.
