Surprisingly Good Sashimi
While I love maki and other Americanized Japanese fare, I usually judge a sushi place on its sashimi, and the salmon sashimi at Azuma Downtown was absolutely perfect. I would definitely go back to try more. The other rolls we tried were also good.

Good Japanese restaurant
We have dined at Azuma many times, usually on Friday or Saturday evenings before a show, and it very consistently serves appetizing Japanese fare from a large menu. Service is good - efficient but not annoyingly attentive nor leaving you in the land of the forgotten. Pricing is also moderate. This past Saturday night the restaurant was nearly full at abut 6:30, so reservations are a good idea if you are dining pre-theatre.

Great before a show
My wife and I ate here before watching Wicked on a Saturday night. It wasn't too crowded, server was excellent, food was great. The only thing I would change would have been to inform the server that we were going to the show so that service would have been a little faster, but he gave us above average service regardless. I highly recommend Azuma.

I had planned to meet a friend
I had planned to meet a friend for lunch, but our lunch for 2 turned into lunch for 8 when our co-workers found out we were going to Azuma. The staff was very accommodating and was able to change our reservation. The sushi was great, and we were glad to have a quiet table so we could hear each other talk. It was a very enjoyable lunch -- thanks!

Very nice Evening
Wife and I had a terrific time. Arrived early and sat at bar for a drink. Enjoyed the intimacy of the small bar. Moved to dining room and service was excellent. David (ask for him) was our waiter. He was very knowledgible about menu. Food was excellent. The presentation was very good. Timeliness of kitchen was also very good. I have nothing bad to say about experience. We dined on a Thursday @ 6:30. When we left about 8 room was filing up.

Not just sushi
Azuma downtown is a dependable option for pre-symphony dining. The sushi is great, but if you are not into sushi, their Chilean Sea Bass, Chicken and beef options are also excellent. The staff is always friendly and attentive.

Good, Not Great
Leon does a great job behind the bar. The sushi's good, but not the best in town. We went with a large group for lunch (eight people); they had no problems accommodating us; and no one from our group complained.

Fresh & Tastsy Lunch
We went in for a nice lunch, and we were definitely impressed! The Hawaiin Poke and Smoked Duck Rolls were amazingly awesome starters to share!! Then we split the Green Shadow roll and St. Charles roll. Both were excellent quality and taste, but my favorite was the Green Shadow. The Lobster roll caught our eye, but we were told it was a really big roll. So, we passed and asked for a modified Red Devil that used lobster instead of shrimp. It was ok. Our service was excellent and knowlegable at first, but then we got a different much younger and less expereinced server. All in all, I would definately try it again.

The wait staff was quite helpful
The wait staff was quite helpful and attentive. Ambiance and feel was spot on. I had been here once prior and was still blown away by how delightful the food is. This sushi is outstanding!
