This place is jammed every night and for good reason! The fish is fresh the service is kind. It is a bit crammed, but that is what you get for being so good in a neighborhood that loves sushi but has few options. Come here....More

Starters included a super salty soup and a lifeless watery lettuce salad. The table ordered a large selection of sushi that was cleverly served on wooden boat-shaped platters. My dining companions loved the pieces, especially the eel. I, however, ordered shrimp teriyaki and was disappointed...More

We’ve eaten in several times but order takeout often, at least 2-3 times a month. Sushi is consistently good and fresh, prices are reasonable and service is always friendly. No complaints at all. This is our favorite local sushi place and we’ve tried them all....More

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

The sushi and service are both so good! This restaurant has become a hotspot for my generation and truly has become a community. Would recommend!

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.

I come here often. The sushi I find to be quite good. There is a lot of traffic around the front area as they do a huge take out business. At common dinner times it can be very busy. Don't judge the restaurant by the...More

I live near Yirisai Sushi and Café and have dined on their offerings possibly 100 times, and it is some of the finest, freshest fish you will find anywhere. They are true sushi artisans, and never fail to meet the high expectations I have of...More
