Asuka Sushi is a mid-price Japanese restaurant. The food is good and well-prepared; the prices are moderate and there is a large selection of Japanese food. The staff is excellent. Each person is customer-oriented and is polite and helpful.

My only complaint is that it tends to be noisy, but that is because it draws a tremendous crowd. There is no loud music playing so the noise emanates from the people.

I recommend this restaurant.

Loved it. Great neighborhood spot, fresh fish, great service. It does get a bit loud during their busy time but I'd definitely recommend.

This place is a gem! Perfect/large portions for reasonable price. Excellent service, always checking in on the table. Nice atmosphere. Small, but spacious, and has an exposed kitchen/bar.

Despite having a reservation, we waited about half an hour for a table. After being seated, we were told that they had a big party coming in and asked if we would be willing to move.

The food here was stunning - the fish beautiful, but it was WAY too crowded, even for NYC. Tables practically on top of each other making it almost impossible to hear the person across from you. The food makes up for it and I will probably be back, but it is really LOUD.

Very clean, the fish is very fresh, and I love the little salad bar which is quite unusual in this type of restaurant. The wait staff works as a team and are all very pleasant, and efficient. The happy hour is just another excellent reason to dine here.

Arrived for an early dinner before a hockey game and lucked into the happy hour enjoying some Sapporo drafts. The dumplings and tempura appetizers were very well prepared and the sushi and sushi rolls were excellent. the service was attentive and friendly. At under $100 for two, it was an excellent value.

A great meal at Asuka Sushi with great service. We are locals and have dinner here about once a month. It’s always an enjoyable and really good meal - this evening was outstanding! Fresh and flavorful, both our sushi and sashimi was excellent, and our soft shell crab couldn’t have been better!

Special thanks to Ivy, who served us, and to both Sammy and Denise, who are always warm and welcoming.

Asuka serves some of the best sushi I've ever had, and I eat sushi often at various restaurants around the world. Large portions of excellent quality fish served artistically arranged on lovely plates. The staff is exceptionally friendly, funny and efficient. My server was attentive and informative and encouraged me to try the tuna as it was excellent quality. He was correct, it was well above average. The only slight drawback is the restaurant is very noisy. Make reservations, it is a popular sushi spot.

Went for a Saturday lunch with a friend and was surprised how crowded it was! We both opted for a bento box which was chock full of good things and a real value at $20. Had the cheesecake for dessert (admittedly not a Japanese delight!) and it was still frozen in the middle. We had not issues eating it that way! I'd definitely go back again!

Dear Asuka Sushi Team,

We had a lovely Valentine's Day Dinner at your place and we want to say thank you again! The food was really amazing and our waiter... just marvelous. Unfortunately we couldn't catch his name, but if you can still remember us, we're the French-Austrian couple. You asked me what "enjoy" means in Austrian. I hope you get to read this too. You made our evening just so much more delightful.

Even though it was crowded and quite noisy he was so swift and we didn't have to wait too long for anything.
So, yet again, thank you! It was a lovely evening and your chef deserves every respect - the sashimi and the sushi rolls were more than just delicious!

Best wishes,
Bastien & Melanie

Overall this place is very nice. The food was excellent and so was the service. It gets very crowded and noisy but it was worth dealing with that. I’d highly recommend this place for a fun night out in a lively Chelsea scene. The food was so fresh and nicely prepared. I’m going back soon.
