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!
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).
I have lots is optical M’s in my neighborhood. I only go here
Great service always!!! Quality of food wonderful!
Super Personal und freundliche und schöne Atmosphäre! Gehe dort fast wöchentlich hin!
Will be back very soon. Was a mixup with the reservation and we were treated to a complimentary app and sake. Amazing service and loved the innovative rolls from the sushi bar
Great value for good food with good sized [ortions
Excellent restaurant in every way, comfortable with reliably great food, and a really good value.
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.
Excellent food and service.
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!
LOVE THIS PLACE! I've been here twice and it has become my sushi go to.
Great food but was very cold in the restaurant.
For the money and convenience it is the best sushi in manhattan.
The food was amazing the place was a little loud but it is Christmas I'm sure every place is loud tonight.
Wish I would have taken the chefs specials, they looked sooo yummy! Instead my “normal” sets were delicious! I do recommend! Erittäin hyvä, suosittelen! Ja mä syön paljon ja usein sushia :’D
Good sushi. Great noodle bowls and soups. Wonderful service.
Table ready for reservation.
Nice atmosphere and ambiance.
Wait staff was attentive and pleasant.
Food was filling and delicious, served pretty quickly.
Overall, really nice place to dine in. Date night, normal dinner, birthday, or any other occassion.
Great food great service reasonable price!
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.
Always a great restaurant. And the staff is so nice and friendly! They also have the best deals for happy hour.
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.
We really like menu ! It was too much fun with friends
very good food. great service. nice environment. great local place to go to before an MSG show!
Pleasant, clean restaurant. Unfortunately, it tends to be noisy. Service is very good; staff is very pleasant. food is well prepared.
Waitress was exceedingly kind in recommending and adjusting for food intolerances. Her recommendation tasted fab.
Delicious sushi! Happy hour is a great deal - 2 cocktails for $9! And the inside is beautiful!
I've become a regular here over the past year. The sushi is top grade at a very moderate cost as sushi goes. Appetizers are ample and creative, service friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.
Awesome food!! Toro nigiri excellent. Congratulations to the Chef
Waitress extremely kind
Great experience, sushi was great and unbelievably fast
Great choices of mostly Japanese cuisine, including great sushi, with some Thai options. Our noodle main course dishes were tasty. Fine bar & friendly service, even on super busy night.
Solid, wide variety of food that is always fresh and delish. Great service. Our go to place for a fun, relaxing dinner
Awesome sushi... love the decor. Our server wasn't has attentive, but overall the food and price was very good. Amazing drinks as well.
