It’s two days later, but as I write this, I’m back at Asuka. That should tell you all you need to know. Enjoy!

PS: try the Samurai roll!

It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. Service was average to slow which was fine, but the food (soup,sashimi,rolls) was average. Kind of a bummer as this place has a lot of great reviews.

My second time here even though I live over a 1000 miles away. There are pricey Japanese options in NYC that are cramped, have no pretty decor whatsoever (like stark), and don't offer much uniqueness except your wallet will hurt when you leave. I love this beautiful place with its shiny tiles and backlit stone columns, the service is very friendly and prompt, nice cocktail options, and very fresh, delectable fish perfectly prepared and a great value. Also very close to the subway. I would eat here a couple times a month if I lived here.

Hidden gem! It was our first time visiting this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Service was outstanding, our glasses were never empty, our server was friendly, and our table was cleared almost instantly after eating something. The sushi was fresh and the rolls were huge!! Word of advice, don't over order. You can always order more. The rolls are bigger than you are used to! The specialty cocktails were amazing. Prices were great. $9 cocktails. Soup $3. Seaweed salad $6. Regular roles $5-$6. Special roles $12-$14. Super jumbo roles $16-$20. Really loved this restaurant!

We had a wonderful dinking experience at Asuka. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. I have a gluten allergy and they adapted rolls for me and brought out the gluten free soy sauce. My friend brought her baby and our waitress was so sweet and understanding with him. The sushi is high quality, fresh fish and the prices can’t be beat. Thank you Asuka for your kind, amazing, attentive staff and our delicious delicious sushi!

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!

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.

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.
