I really love this place which is my favorite sushi. The interior has low lights which are relaxing and comfortable. I have had many different kinds of rolls as well as tempura, roe, individual pieces. I have never had anything that wasn't delicious. The other day I ordered takeout to visit a disabled friend and I cannot believe the quality... More

My family always loves going here for dinner when in Lexington, one of the best hibachi restaurants in the country! This place is amazing

I entertained customers at the Asuka Japanese Steakhouse in Nicholasville today. I was impressed the first time I ate here; if anything, they ramped their service up even higher! Asuka dished out one of the best tasting lunches we have had in a long time, with top shelf service! Highest recommendation!

The server told me he had too much work to do to take my order. He was rude and took forever just to take our order. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The sushi was really good. However with the overall experience I won't be back.

This was our first visit here after many years of eating at Nagasaki Inn. We headed to Nagasaki Inn and found a zaxbys built in its place... So we wanted a new place to become a favorite. Asuka did not disappoint! The food was prepared well (even though our chef forgot salt and pepper) the meal was efficient and out... More

We had dinner at Asuka for my daughters 10th birthday. The service was quick and fun, and the food was fantastic. Our server gave special detail to my daughters birthday. We went on a Wednesday night and there was no wait, but it was busy.

We went with our family (party of 8) to celebrate both a birthday and a late Father's Day. Half of the group ordered the teriyaki chicken that came with hibachi-style veggies and fried rice, and the other half of the group ordered 8 sushi rolls to share between four of us. We were pleasantly surprised to discover even the sushi-eaters... More

My family ate here for lunch and it was good but not great. The sushi was good and the other cooked food that my family ordered was good, but the service was somewhat lacking. The wait staff do not seem to be very well organized.
