Arrived late, about 45 minutes before it closed, ordered some sort of fried ramen, and it was the worst I had ever had.... couldn't even finish a quarter of it. It was tasteless, spice-less, had no idea where it went wrong... Maybe because it's best...More

This is a neighbor gem! It is a no frills restaurant that combines great sushi at a reasonable price. Worth a visit.

Yirasai has become one of our regular spots -- both for eat in and take out. We've also had them do wonderful platters for parties we've given at our home. Mr. Kim is always very friendly and accommodating. The food couldn't be fresher. Highly recommended.
