Great value

This restaurant is a great value. The food is always good and the portions are huge. We've rarely had to wait long, and I find that it's a great place to go with kids...lots of good food for a reasonable price.

From the good reviews, we picked this and learned that was a mistake. First, it is not cooked in front of you which is okay. However, the prices are about the same as the places where they do cook it in front of you. You basically place your order at a counter and then sit in the dining room which... More

Surrounded by 4 fast-food joints, Asaka is one step above that level of restaurant in that they have sit down table service. Not that the food is bad, it's just not high quality. You certainly get your money's worth; the servings are large. A side salad for $2.60 turned out to be a platter of iceberg lettuce, a couple slices... More

I ate at Asaka this evening which I do frequently when going to Asheville for a shopping day . I had the vegetable entrée (approx. $5.25) which is huge helping of stir-fried vegetables (onions, mushrooms, squash, broccoli) with sides of fried rice and Japanese carrots with delicious shrimp sauce and an added huge salad for about $2.60. Entrée is delicious... More

Asaka is a great place for some quick Japanese style food. The food has an excellent flavor. The service is very good. And the price is reasonable.

We picked up excellent soup and sushi to take back to our room. We were very impressed by the superb, friendly service, even though we weren't staying to eat there.

Took my mom here for dinner recently. I used to come here all the time years back when I lived in Asheville. It's nice to know that they still serve food just as good and consistent as they used to!

I love this place. It cheap, fast and very tasty! I always get the shrimp entree, which is shrimp, broccoli, rice and carrots. The carrots are DELICIOUS! And to the reviewer below, its HIBACHI. Not hamachi. And yes, its as good as hibachi.

We loved this place. We will be back every time we are in Asheville. Wish we had one close to home. We actually ate here twice on our 3 day trip.

I work at the hospital right up the street from Asaka so I often get food to take to work. You can order and they'll have it ready pretty quick. The prices are low and the portions are HUGE! One entree order comes in a styrofoam flip container and its always packed to the BRIM! The place itself looks like... More
