A midtown Manhattan sushi restaurant is banning tips to improve dining experiences.

Sushi Yasuda has banned gratuities and raised menu prices, a common practice in European and Australian restaurants.

The owner also raised wages for employees, saying employees don’t need tips because they’re already paid well.

What do you think? Should other restaurants follow suit?
