This restaurant is my "local." I've been eating here for years, beginning back when it was half the size it is now. Usually I go early in the evening, or for lunch; this was the first time that I arrived close to 8 pm, and the place was packed, but the service was, as usual, very attentive and friendly. I almost always order the same thing: the bento box, which for $18 gives you a little bit of everything and a lot of fresh salad, which you assemble yourself. I always eat too much, but console myself with the fact that the food is "healthy." Which it is: green vegetables, brown rice if you ask for it, and fresh fish, often raw.

Very good, but not great.
Still, it is a very pleasant place, and I recommend it to every one.

Our Neighborhood Japanese Gem
We enjoy this Japanese restaurant in Chelsea, so happy it's close by. Terrific salad bar.

Sushi + happy hour
The sushi and sashimi in our "for two" platter was all delicious and fresh, as was the unique shrimp/lobster roll we got from thday's specials...definitely among the best I've had in the city...also a fantastic and generously portioned seaweed salad (often for your $5-6 you get a tiny side-dish sized serving, this was a reasonable bowl that two could share), but the reason I picked the spot was the happy hour and that did not disappoint...with our carafe of hot sake we got two beers and a mixed drink no charge, and the next mixed drink was buy one get one...all were creative and delicious. We left very happy and full, and I now have a go-to sushi/happy hour spot that I'll definitely revisit and recommend!

Great Sushi Bar
We had such a great meal the first time we went there, we came back a second time and brought a couple of people with us. Everyone enjoyed their meals and felt that the entrees were not only very good but also large and a great value.

food was good and so were the prices. i loved the warm towel that they give you to wipe your hands when you sit down!

Went with a group of 5 and we enjoyed everything. For someone who doesn't like raw fish, the veggie roll options are very good.

Sushi for Three on 23
We were meeting in Chelsea and the review for Asuka Sushi popped up. There was plenty of food which was well-prepared. Specialty cocktails were a hit!

Great Sushi! Great Drinks!
The sushi was among the best we have tasted anywhere. Some of the rolls were quite unique as was their drink menu. Our waiter was friendly, very helpful, and provided great service. Fantastic Happy Hour.
