Yasaka Japanese Dining

High-calibre Japanese food at hidden gem Yasaka Japanese Dining in Long Jetty

Opening in 2020, Yasaka has been praised for bringing high-calibre Japanese cuisine to the Central Coast beyond simple sushi shops. It’s a big win for Long Jetty bringing an evening dining option to the predominantly daytime cafe strip.

The small and humble restaurant only seats about ten tables and is consistently booked thanks to their fresh and authentic dishes.

Run by a friendly husband and wife team, Yasaka’s menu is small but worthy, featuring Japanese favourites made of fresh ingredients sourced from Sydney Fish Market.

The attentive hosts are clearly proud of sharing their Japanese tradition both through their food and their humble nature. The space is sparse and low-key, decorated with just a few calligraphy prints but the food delivers high on flavour.

At lunch time you can grab a classic bento box or try the DIY ramen served with all the elements ready for you to put together to your taste. If sushi is your go-to, try their namesake Yasaka Roll of cream cheese, salmon, avocado and tempura vege.

For dinner you can't pass up the standout miso eggplant which is tender, rich, golden and completely moreish.

The soft shell crab, a true Japanese favourite, is crispy, succulent and meaty, arriving in a generous portion easily shared between two. However, a visit to Yasaka cannot be without an order of their homemade gyoza which are served topped with a crispy net ‘pancake’ for extra crunchy bits!
