I have visited Yashin earlier. First time around the experience was really good and had some great sushi. However I feel the service levels and quality has dropped a bit. Yes they have included some new things in the menu but the wow factor is...More

Unquestionably the best sushi in London. Terrific restaurant and Travis, the waiter of only 4 months, is delightful. The negiri with truffle on the top is extraordinary. A great place!

There's a continuous performance going on behind the bar so, if your companions are boring you can just zone out and watch food being meticulously prepared the Japanese way. The three-layered tofu is a particular delight and tempura prawns sort of hover in midair on...More

Very good sushi. The Omakase is better enjoyed with a reservation that serve one at a time. You have to request this when making reservation, you will be seated at a different location at the bar. The Tofu soup is very good too. The Mochi...More

Description
Yashin Sushi is a modern Japanese restaurant centered on "Without Soy Sauce". Of course we can offer the diner as much soy sauce as he or she desires, but our philosophy is that the taste of the fish should be emphasised, not the taste of soy sauce. That is why we brush each piece of individual piece of fish with the right amount of soy sauce and add an accompaniment that will enhance and complement the flavour of the fish without taking it away. As well as our omakase sushi, we also serve a range of authentic and exclusive dishes, such as prize-winning premium Hida Wagyu and chargrilled eel freshly prepared on site.
