Great food, shame we were stuck on an extra table just by a sealed off entrance. It was freezing. We ate with our coats on. Staff didn’t do much to move us to another table. Too focused on cramming as many people in and not looking after customers.

Für unseren letzten Abend in NY hatten wir uns dieses Restaurant ausgesucht und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Obwohl es wirklich voll war, waren die Kellner sehr geduldig und freundlich. Das Essen ist von sehr guter Qualität und das Ambiente sehr schön. Leider hat es etwas gezogen (wir saßen im Bereich der Eingangstür) und ein paar Tische weniger würden das ganze entzerren und gemütlicher machen. Unbedingt vorab reservieren. Alles in allem ein gelungener Besuch.

The sushi here was much better than I expected! The decor runs toward "lounge" and it was a bit on the noisy side, but it's efficient (we were seated right away despite the place being full). Thumbs up from me and from my wife as well.

We had a reservation and we waited over 1 hour for a table. The hostess kept coming over and saying the next table would be ours but every time someone would get up she would give the table to someone else. Once sat down, service was great and food was great. Just a very annoying start to our night.

Best sushi best value: Asuka offers outstanding food including the best sushi for a fair price. There are Japanese restaurants in the same neighborhood that offer comparable food at double the price, which makes one wonder why anyone would go anywhere else. The biggest difference might be the hype and ambiance. While the restaurant is tasteful enough, it is highly energetic (noisy) and probably due to the quality and value, always very busy. I love sushi, have eaten it all over the world, including Japan, and am always impressed with how they deliver such a great product reasonably (for sushi, that is)!

Sashimi was good. Little ambience, cold breeze inside in winter, noodle soup was average at best, black cod was not great for what you pay. Overall experience leaves a lot to desire.

We were late getting to our reservation by an hour due to heavy traffic and they still were able to seat us even though the place was jam packed. The service was so quick and the food was great. I would highly recommend the place.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in NYC! I have a gluten allergy and I love coming to this restaurant because all of the waiters and waitresses are knowledgeable of the menu and my allergy. You get the best sushi for a great price and even better service!

LOVED ASUKA SUSHI!!! We had never been there before - but we will all be back!! The food, service, and the host and hostess are all wonderful! The place is crazy busy (for a good reason) - but every customer is treated so well. The entire staff is so caring- they are amazing! The food is soooooo good!! We absolutely loved everything we ordered! The menu is huge - so many great choices. Fried calamari, beef negimaki, and tempura appetizers were all outstanding. All of our sushi dinners were delicious. Great combo entrees as well! Can't wait to go back - this place is honestly the BEST!!!

The service was great! I appreciate the wait staff telling us what she especially likes and what she's not tried. The food was good, but not as flavorful as I would have liked. But, worse, the tables were too crowded and at 5:30 on a Tuesday night the noise level WAY too high - we could hear conversations beside us better than we could hear each other.

Great friendly service. Loved the Agedashi Tofu and most of the sushi - very fresh! The cucumber wrap around the sushi was good not great - the cucumber wasn’t as crisp as we would have wanted. Crowded, noisy, fun! Def would go again - the rolls looked terrific!

We had a 9:00pm reservation and were not seated until 9:17pm. The restaurant was very busy, extremely loud and unprepared for reserved customers. The food was acceptable, but not exceptional. We had sushi and sashimi for two and a couple of sushi and one extra roll. It was more than sufficient. Things calmed down after 9:45 and we were able to converse without screaming. So much better.

Staff very efficient, maybe too efficient. People were rushed in an out with ruthless efficiency. Ordered the 3 spicy roll dinner. Could not tell the difference between the spicy tuna and the spicy salmon. How can that be? Okay, it was Saturday, but it was very noisy and people milling about waiting for a table, or not. Had enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the prior visit, and had nice food at good value. Dinner was a very different story, one I won't repeat.
