I live in the Van Ness / Tenleytown area, which is a bit devoid of any nightlife of note. There are however, a few restaurants in the area that offer a pretty good experience in a pinch and Yasaku is one of them.
Cost – $$
Service – A-
It’s fantastic. They are always friendly and seem happy to see me.
Food – B+
I wouldn’t place it in the top-tier of area sushi restaurants but it is certainly not something to frown down upon. It is good enough.
Decor – B+
It has a quaint, Japanese middle-of-the-road aesthetic going on that works for me.
Feel – B+
Yosaku is definitely more of a neighborhood joint. It is not worth making the trip up to Tenleytown just for the restaurant but if you already happen to live in the area it is definitely a place to grab some good sushi on a weekday evening.
Yosaku Restaurant is located at 4712 Wisconsin Ave. They can be reached at (202) 363-4453.
