Great food and super big portions

Came here for the second time for dinner, first time was lunch and was already overwhelmed by their portions, I think their dinner portions were even bigger! As big as the portions got, the flavors were not lost at all, the food was still delicious! I strongly recommend their combo sets. Although... read more

We love to go to Azuma when we go south. Their sashimi plate is so good and so much fresh fish. The salads (shredded cabbage w/Japanese mayo & ketchup and macaroni salad) are so good and so much. My husband loves the teriyaki steak because of the sauce. The black cod is delicious. They also have "tapa" dishes. Service is... More

If you limit yourself to the combo plates, you are missing out on some great food! Consider the Buta Kakuni--a huge chunk of meltingly fatty pork belly, served with a bit of cooked spinach and hot mustard (cuts the fat, I like to believe). Or the ShioTan (grilled beef tongue.) Or the Teba Chicken Wings. Or ask for Butter Shiitake--might... More

The portions here are so big that you should share. Love the Chicken Katsu and the fried fish is very good. Again get there at the opening or expect to wait.

This hole in the wall is the best place to eat Japanese food at a reasonable price. Their sashimi is fresh and consistent. I have eaten here dozens of times. A couple things I like to order are: Miso cod (mouth watering good!), grilled musubi (takes longer than most of the food to cook, but well worth it), shishito. the... More
