Two friends invited me there to show how proper japanese restaurant looks like. Salad in there is so tasty! Soup brilliant! Rolls are perfect! But best thing which i had was wagyu nigiri which was a compliment from Chef. Will visit again and again! Recommend everyone!

Cannot fault the quality of the food. Sashimi starters, warm tapas octopus, Omakase 8 (sushi) were all beautifully presented and just delicious. Japanese wine, Grace, was comparable to a light sauvignon blanc. Hot sake was, well, hot sake! The service was friendly and engaging so the experience was excellent. The only reason for dropping a star, which might seem mean,... More

Came here with my girlfriend, for my birthday on 22nd of December and have been meaning to write a review ever since. Have long been a sushi fan, but this was my first time going for one of the higher end options. Waiting staff were very attentive and on the ball.

I am still a bit surprised about the lack of authentic Japanese/sushi restaurants in a major city like London. I have been to London a few times and yet to find an authentic sushi place. Yashin Sushi is one of the first sushi restaurants that I have been to London that is decent. It is still a bit too fusion... More

Pretty amazing Japanese restaurants, among the best in London. Impressive selection of sushi, sashimi, rolls and other dishes made to order in front of your eyes by skilled sushi chefs. Both the fish and the presentation are pretty unique, unlikely to be found anywhere else in town. By all means, do not miss matured tuna sushi, at par where's the... More

Best sushi place in London! A lot of people don't know about this place, so hoping it will remain a 'secret' gem. Not pretentious at all unlike some of the famous sushi places in London; a place for real sushi lovers. By far the best sushi restaurant in London! Try sitting at the bar for the full experience!

Best place inside the restaurant is probably the bar, since you are able to see everything getting prepared (watching a sushi chef filleting is not something you see every day!) and having a small chat with the staff gives some nice insight regarding dishes and japanese gastronomy :). The service was great too! The fish and most of the things... More

We were introduced to Yashin a few years back and it instantly became our go to sushi restaurant in London. The appetisers are to die for and are always beautifully presented and the Omikase is incomparable to anything at any other sushi restaurant we have experienced. We prefer dining upstairs and at the sushi bar. If you love sushi and... 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.
