Overall I was happy with my experience, but it wasn't anything to write home about. The tempura roll was really good!

The quality is just always better, the fish always tastes very clean and never any of the funky off notes you might get with, say, earthy tasting eel elsewhere. Attention to detail on every part of your plate, and consistently superior results. Of course the restaurant is not as hopping as it used to be, because the owners have taken out all but like 8 tabes for maximum safety, yet the lunch special has remained very reasonably priced.

Indoor dining only but tables were well spaced and air filters in plain view. Sushi was first-rate, as good as ever.

Love this restaurant. They need to step up their game keeping the place clean and clutter free. We were sat next to a stack of beer cases, which really detracted from the experience. Also, it would help if they painted the place.

We decided to take out and what a treat! We ordered one sushi lunch for $16.00 and another three roll combination for $20.00- we ordered yellowtail, tuna, salmon with avocado and salmon skin rolls...the meal was delicious and is now going to become to "go to" sushi restaurant. Highly recommend it.

Happy to have an excellent and relaxed environment for our first indoor dining experience. It was so nice to have a relaxed staff versus the other local establishments where they are so uptight even with all the Covid restrictions in place and being outside. Sushi Asaka was safe with protection and relaxed which made for a much more peaceful and trusting experience.

Thank you for making my wife's birthday dinner so enjoyable in the face of the safety measures you have put in. It was a real pleasure!

I love this restaurant. However, think that if another customer is extremely loud the management need to let them know they're too noisy.

Difficult to review during CoVid restrictions- definitely a great place in terms of value
they had very limited omakase, per server due to Covid, which was very good. The regular menu was good. Staff were very nice and attentive. No complaints -had a nice experience.

Great food. We had Usuzukuri, sashimi combo, and nigiri combo, as well as sake and one other appetizer (mushrooms). Fish was all fresh and delicious. Service was good enough, too. The price was very reasonable. We'll definitely go back when we're in NY again.

Almost same quality and taste in Japan. If you prefer authentic sushi, Yasaka is the place to come.
