Love this restaurant and its owner who provided exceptional service during Covid-19. I don’t usually leave reviews but doing it this time to support this restaurant. The Chawan mushi (hard to find dish) is really amazing. Sushi good quality, and real Japanese Wagyu beef that is good value for money (not cheap obviously for real Japanese wagyu, but better value nonetheless compared to most restaurants offering similar quality beef). We need to support businesses like this so they can survive this challenging time.

Due to corona we had to sit on Westwood blvd as the patio was booked.
That’s why I gave 3stars for ambiance
Otherwise this place is great
From customer service to the food
Sushi was absolutely delicious

My husband and I LLLLLOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEE Asuka. We are big sushi fans and have been looking for an amazing spot since Sushi of Gari closed in Hollywood. The BEST part of it all is that we recently moved and Asuka is now 2 blocks away from our house!

The sushi is IMPECCABLE. Seriously, one of the TOP sushi restaurants in the city.

Will not disappoint one bit!

A business lunch for 2 people without drinks for $175 is excessive.
We shared 9 pieces of sushi and a lunch plate of sashimi, plus 1 black cod.

The food was impeccable. Sushi highlights were the king salmon, the uni, and the ikura. I also tried the chawanmushi which was incredible. The uni might be the best uni I've ever had. I could have done without the special white fish (nogoduro) which was among the most expensive. And the goldeneye snapper was interesting and I'm glad I tried it, but I enjoyed the salmon and yellowtail more. Next time I will probably stick to king salmon, yellowtail, and ikura, with uni on special occasions (because it's very pricey). I will definitely be back, and I look forward to trying the green tea tiramisu which looked great.

Waitress ordered the wrong beef dish for my wife. She pointed to the "Japanese Beef" @ $15. She brought Waygu beef but never said anything. @ $65. Clearly their mistake. Their retort was "you ate it so you must pay for it"! My wife thought it was good but never knew it was Waygu. Manager kept arguing with us but finally relented to reduce the charge. Handled so poorly by waitress and manager. Will never go back after that treatment.

Asuka has returned from 20 years ago! The entire meal was Fabulous. The quality of food was of the highest , very fresh as if straight from the sea and was presented beautifully. The menu is extensive with traditional Japanese offerings and many more unusual selections.
The ambiance is sophisticated and yet welcoming. The owner is a delight especially since he retains his graciousness we remembered from so long ago!

Went there for years, before they moved......used to be a consistent, neighborhood sushi spot, with quality food. Sadly........it isn't anymore. Food was mediocre at best. Tuna sashimi had sauce on it???? Hand rolls looked like they were half full, only dish OK was the rock shrimp. Tempura was 4 pieces with no shrimp, we were informed that it would be too expensive to have shrimp in their tempura at any price. Too pricey for what it is.

Say at the bar and not in the dining room as it was a bit too dimly lit for my liking. Ordered the omikaze and it was all delicious. The service was extremely friendly and attentive and a nice part of the good experience. It’s not cheap, but a really enjoyable dining experience.

The food was incredible; the service was impeccable. We did one of the fixed price meals and it was superb in every way. The sushi was some of the best ever, and the visit and description by the owner made it very special. If you haven't been here and love fresh, authentic sushi and Japanese food, you simply must try it!
