We were late getting to our reservation by an hour due to heavy traffic and they still were able to seat us even though the place was jam packed. The service was so quick and the food was great. I would highly recommend the place.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in NYC! I have a gluten allergy and I love coming to this restaurant because all of the waiters and waitresses are knowledgeable of the menu and my allergy. You get the best sushi for a great price and even better service!

LOVED ASUKA SUSHI!!! We had never been there before - but we will all be back!! The food, service, and the host and hostess are all wonderful! The place is crazy busy (for a good reason) - but every customer is treated so well. The entire staff is so caring- they are amazing! The food is soooooo good!! We absolutely loved everything we ordered! The menu is huge - so many great choices. Fried calamari, beef negimaki, and tempura appetizers were all outstanding. All of our sushi dinners were delicious. Great combo entrees as well! Can't wait to go back - this place is honestly the BEST!!!

The service was great! I appreciate the wait staff telling us what she especially likes and what she's not tried. The food was good, but not as flavorful as I would have liked. But, worse, the tables were too crowded and at 5:30 on a Tuesday night the noise level WAY too high - we could hear conversations beside us better than we could hear each other.

Great friendly service. Loved the Agedashi Tofu and most of the sushi - very fresh! The cucumber wrap around the sushi was good not great - the cucumber wasn’t as crisp as we would have wanted. Crowded, noisy, fun! Def would go again - the rolls looked terrific!

Excellent and friendly service. Had two for one drink specials and the food and portion size was amazing !! Definitely will return as it was the perfect precursor to a night at the comedy club.

We had a 9:00pm reservation and were not seated until 9:17pm. The restaurant was very busy, extremely loud and unprepared for reserved customers. The food was acceptable, but not exceptional. We had sushi and sashimi for two and a couple of sushi and one extra roll. It was more than sufficient. Things calmed down after 9:45 and we were able to converse without screaming. So much better.

Staff very efficient, maybe too efficient. People were rushed in an out with ruthless efficiency. Ordered the 3 spicy roll dinner. Could not tell the difference between the spicy tuna and the spicy salmon. How can that be? Okay, it was Saturday, but it was very noisy and people milling about waiting for a table, or not. Had enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the prior visit, and had nice food at good value. Dinner was a very different story, one I won't repeat.

Very good fish quality, special items as salmon belly were really good. Attentive service and overall well presented plates. A down to earth Japanese cuisine with quality, presentation, comprehensive menu, and service; less of expensive bells and whistles in menus from several competitors in Manhattan.

As always, dining at Asuka is great.
Food is good, price is fair.
This time, it was quiet for a change. (Labor Day weekend).

It was an amazing experience. The place was lively with conversations all around. The music was very low if there was any. The ambiance was low light and a nice mood. The food itself came out quick and was amazing. The king crab avocado roll made the California rolls that I used to think were the best seem like meh. The shrimp tempura rolls were gigantic and tasted magnificent. They’re worth the price based on size alone. The Japanese fried rice was delicious as well and had me still eating after I was full.

Disappointed with Open Table/Asuka Sushi as far as service goes. In the Open Table reservation comments, I notated it was a special occasion and requested a surprise dessert (green tea ice cream), however, it was neither offered or received. It’s not clear to me if it’s the fault of the app for not sharing the comments or the restaurant staff for not reading the comments.

First time there. Great customer service. Dinner included a make your own salad bar. A real plus and value. The sashimi presentation was beautiful and the seafood was fresh and bright. I learned that the leaves on the dish were not only edible but a delicious pairing with the fish. Would definitely go back.

The sushi is fresh and reasonably priced. it can get loud. And, when I entered the restaurant I was scolded for having a dripping umbrella, even though it was closed. It was not the welcome I like when entering to eat. Our wait person was attentive and the sushi was really good.
