GREAT Food and Portions. Needs A Deep Cleaning.

Asahi is one of those places that when your craving it, it REALLY hits the spot. I almost enjoy their rice more than the meat and veggies! Once you smother it all in their shrimp sauce, you won't be able to stop. The sweet carrots are so delightful and soft and mix really well with the... read more

Super fast and friendly service! My kids love the Hibachi Chicken with extra sweet carrots! Located right off Hwy 321 in Kingston Pike in Lenoir City next to the Pilot gad station.

We've been regulars to Asahi -- about 2 or 3 times a month -- for a while. All that is over. After our most recent visit, we've decided we will never be back. The food quality has plummeted in recent visits. The service is poor -- our order has been wrong the last three times. This time all we received... More

Always have gotten a great hibachi meal here. Very quick service and very clean restaurant. Get a lot for the price and I usually have leftovers.

The food is always amazing. The tables and floors however could stand to be cleaned. Every time we are here our shoes stick to the floor and our hands stick to the table. We always come back for the awesome food, but seriously...mop the floor every now and again.

I've eaten here quite a few times. The food and service is always good, but they really need to clean this place from top to bottom. The tables and chairs are always sticky every time we go. I feel like the atmosphere could be a lot better, but I think it's mainly the cleaning issue that needs to be addressed.... More

Friends brought us here. This is one of the best values around. The food is very tasty and the prices are very reasonable. It's not fancy, but you're not paying for fancy, either. Our only complaint would be the food is a little bit salty. The service is good too. Fast service and attention to refilling your drink.

We've been going to Asahi's once or twice per month ever since they opened. Food is always cooked fresh, good size servings, and is always consistent! Prices are very reasonable.
