Yasu is Canada's first Omakase sushi bar, dedicated to using only the finest fish from around the world.
In a global world where borders are becoming seamless, we can now have access to the freshest seafood like what we have in Japan. We took this opportunity to return to the roots of sushi, in which simplicity was the key ingredient in bringing out the taste of the sea. We use classical methods to draw out the umami of seafood. Our fish is freshly sliced and placed atop warm, loose rice then brushed with a touch of nikiri soy for a perfectly balanced bite. In short, Yasu is all about capturing the essence of sushi. The seasonal ingredients are prepared at the sushi bar and served immediately for maximum flavour and freshness. Come and enjoy our true omakase sushi experience.
