I loved everything I ordered but my partner and I were not a fan of what she ordered. Cheaper than eating in Boston so a plus.

We went with a reservation on a busy Friday night, had to wait about 15 mins for a table. Atmosphere is fairly noisy, very hard to hear servers with masks on. Ramen and skewers were good. We found the menu a little confusing on our first visit, it is not exactly clear how many pieces on a dish and how many things to order per person etc.

Almost everything about this restaurant experience was top notch. The servers were attentive, knowledgable working 100 % to serve everyone. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked, maybe even better. We tried three small plates and four different ramen. All amazing. The only negative was the table water. It’s pure unfiltered Worcester tap. Earthy, with a hint of tin and parking lot puddle. It was out of place compared to the superb quality of the food itself. Skip it and buy bottled.

Hot Asian spot new to Worcester in 2019 and great to see it thriving thru the pandemic. I got the Ghost Ramen Bowl and some Gyoza and Beef Tataki (?) to start. Food quality is top shelf and authentic to it's Japanese heritage. Our server was excellent, just the bar seemed a bit slow. Highly recommend this spot if you love to try authentic cuisine.

First time at Chashu for everyone in the party! We had a wonderful time. The only thing we didn’t care for were the prices of alcoholic beverages for the value. The drinks were yummy but not strong at all.

This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite spots to eat. The servers are all fantastic, the drinks are tasty and the food is always amazing. I've been six times since I discovered it this winter and I have no complaints. If you can eat here, you should.

Had been wanting to try Chashu for some time (and finally found some time)...our meal comprised the chicken wings with teriyaki dip on the side plus the Kongo option on their Woo Bap, a meal with skewered meats finished tableside by our excellent server. It was a bit spicier than my date had been led to believe, but I thought it was great. A nice bottle of red and a shared custard dessert topped off a very nice date-nite dinner. Will be back for the ramen and Bao Buns, which I've heard are "ta die foah." From a Bostonian, obviously.

I have been 3 times now and LOVE this restaurant. I have lived in places with fabulous dining scenes, I believe this restaurant rivals the best restaurants anywhere. I had to note that the noise level was high during my last visit, but that was only due to live music. Typically the noise level is comfortably low.

The experience at Chashu was amazing. The food was delicious! Everything from appetizers to dessert was not only delicious but also presented beautifully! The Cereal Milk Bar dessert was amazing and should be a permanent addition to the menu. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful and very nice. Had a great time and will definitely be back!

Food was outstanding, it was so well prepared. Presentation was amazing, but truly felt this led to crazy delays in getting the food. Ordered at 6:30, first small plate didn't hit our table until 7:20! The food delivery was very uneven, our waitress/server was overwhelmed as she was working the bar too. Staff was super friendly and really accommodating to a food allergy but if you go, don't be in a rush. Overall we would go back, but know that it would be a slow meal.

Exploring Worcester and stopped by for dinner. They were not serving sushi at the time, but the Izakaya options were all very tasty fusion options. The flavors are a little richer and umami with touches of Cajun spice and truffle. Did not try the Ramen. Dessert was fait accompli.
