Could not have been happier. From the moment I arrived the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely spectacular and fresh as could be. I started with the Kumamoto oysters Served with their house with a tad of Tobikko and caviar. Wonderful. The seaweed salad was a great refreshing side dish. I finished up some of the freshest tasting sushi I never had. They had baby yellow fan, and Toro. I had an assortment of individual pieces of sashimi. Topped it off with a small glass of Sauvignon Blanc. I have a nice selection of cocktails and it was a 2-for-1 happy hour. Definitely a place like a miss.
Great sushi spot where you get the bang for your buck. Don't be surprised by the line that's out the door, it moves fairly fast. However, I do recommend scheduling a reservation.
Happy hour is great - drinks are BOGO free!
Service was amazing ! The happy hour two for one It was great especially the lechee martini . They are very nice staff of people
Everything was very good. We got a window seat which was awesome. I could see the Empire State Building from my seat. Waitress was wonderful and gave us good suggestions. Food presentation was very nice and the food was delicious.
I don't recommend this restaurant. The service was slow to start; but did pick up. The food was average to below average. The soup was pretty good; but the sushi overall seemed less fresh and disappointing based on the reviews. It's expensive when you compare to the competition. The noise level was exceedingly high. Almost unbearable. Distracted from enjoying your experience.
Food was amazing and our waiter was fantastic!
Why I don't see my 100 points for this???
nice place for Japanese food and sushi. the salad bar is excellent. service is nice. gets busy in the evening so good to have a reservation.
Great service, generous portions and very reasonable price. The fish tasted very fresh which is the most important aspect of a sushi/sashimi meal.
Very nice spot. Wasn't sure at first because of the website. Not much to see. But we took a chance and was very pleased. Our server was Awesome!!! Food was Amazing. I'm not a fan of plum wine but that one was very good.
We love Asuka! The sushi is consistently great and very affordable. The service is always wonderful, and their happy hour cocktails are great, too. We love meeting friends here to catch up - they never rush you out.
Asuka is a very popular reasonably priced neighborhood sushi restaurant. Plus a very good salad bar instead of the usual iceberg lettuce and ginger glop salad.
Service is fast and friendly. They like to turn over tables. Food is very good.
Amazing as always!
Sake tasting was lovely and educational. Very good miso soup.
Good food, low lighting and vibe made everyday dinner seem more special
Fresh, we’ll presented and reasonably priced menu. Efficient & friendly service. Great go-to neighborhood place for folks that like sushi!
Amazing amazing sushi! Waitress was very nice and polite. The bartender was super nice as well! We had a great time!
Overall a good experiences. The food was good and it‘s a great value.
Great vegetarian/vegan options and server was super helpful and accommodating!
The sashimi was terrific, but the service was rushed.
It was my girlfriend’s first time there and it instantly became her favorite sushi restaurant.
My favorite sushi spot in the city
Food was really good, huge portions and really nice service. It's really good for a low budget yet nice dinner/lunch
Took out of town friends and family . Food was okay nothing special . The waitress was VERY helpful not attentive but gave good advice.
Attentive service, and good food.
Great food and great service. Excellent variety of sushi and the desserts are tasty. Located very close to subway and busses
AMAZING as always
Food and service were great, but the happy hour crowd were so loud it was painful
Made reservations at last minute. Service was great and the food was fresh and very good. Will definitely return next time in the area
Good food and service. Great Value. Always busy, always good. Call ahead and make a reservation.
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.
The food is always delicious and it is a really fun atmosphere. We had a fantastic server. We will definitely be coming back
Was bad and the host was terrible. We arrived 5 min late to our reservation so they made us wait 30 minutes
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.
Always great. Our go to sushi place
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!!!!
We loved it!
The food was really good! A little noisy but fun!
