We love Asuka. The shrimp shumai, hot and sour soup, and special rolls are our favorites. We always have a good time, becasue the nicest people work there. They are always helpful and attentive. The restaurant can get very lively, but it only feels fun. Never noisy and tense as some places can get.

Asuka has come a long way over the years - they remodeled a number of years ago and the food has improved along with the ambiance - kind of festive and a good value. There special rolls a re huge and inventive.

I love this place. It's one of our "go-to" places for our weekly dinner-dates. The staff are friendly, helpful, and the food is excellent. It has become very popular (deservedly so) and a reservation is necessary!

I only had a two hours or so between trains at Penn Station. My daughter and I have been to Asuka before. It's only a little bit south of the station, an easy walk, and the service is always good. The food in both quality, presentation, freshness, etc. is always great. I also can't complain about the 2 for 1 happy hour prices. As you can see, the Chef's Sashimi is bound to impress.

I found this place on Opentable, because it was one of the only NY restaurants to host 11 people. Although they were running 5min behind with getting our table, the staff quickly fixed their impression. We had several in-sync waiters accommodating us with their delicious food and complimentary birthday cake at the end! They even did separate checks for all 11 of us (which doesn’t happen often)! The food was FANTASTIC and so FRESH!!!! The owner wishes me a Happy Birthday at the end and apologized for the wait, which I complimented him on all the accomplishments! Fabulous dining, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Lively atmosphere, happy hour drink specials, appetizer salad bar. I’ve had tastier fish but it is fresh. Pretty good value for money, particularly if you get the happy hour two for 1 drinks (at bar or tables).

Good local Japanese restaurant. Staff is friendly and helpful; prices are affordable. Restaurant tends to be noisy, but that is due to people speaking too loudly

Very crowded restaurant, not too enough seating space or walking space. Good bargain price on the food. Found this restaurant using the Opentable app on what’s available around me now. Love this feature of Opentable.

Bustling but not intrusive. Asuka's menu includes a broad mix of traditional and fusion dishes, well-prepared, nicely presented. Good sake selection. Courteous staff. Among our favorite stops for a cordial meal out with friends. Reservations strongly advised.

We were looking for a sushi place for dinner and not succeeding. My boyfriend found this place on open table. And I made a reservation. We showed up and they had our table ready and the service was great. Super said they were out of Uni, but oh my god the food was good. Best seaweed salad i have ever had. My boyfriend had the miso soup and said it was really good. We got the Samari roll and the happy spider roll! WOW! These were made with love and boy were they good good good! If I lived in NY, this would be my spot! Also, service was great. So nice and always keep your water glass filled!

Been here a few times and the food is always great! It does get crowded though and can be a pretty tight fit. Not great for a privacy.

Prices are reasonable but fish isn't that fresh - my friend had sashimi and the swordfish tasted like it had been frozen then thawed. They have a DIY salad bar which I thought was a nice touch. Their specialty rolls are tasty and filling.

Food is good and the service is nice as well. They have a great salad bar. The restaurant is dark and cold...especially since the door doesn't close properly. I had to keep getting up to close the door!

The young woman who was seating customers was unpleasant! Although we really like this place we thought our experience could have been much nicer if they had a more pleasant hostess. There are so many restaurants in NYC why should anyone have to put up with staff members who instead of being grateful to have a job act like they are doing you a favor? Next time we will go to Haru where the people are much nicer.

The sushi was outstanding!!! We had spicy girl roll and one with shrimp tempura, avocado and coconut. The restaurant is quite small and was very crowded. We hardly had finished before we had the check on the table. In and out.
