Good food, prices reasonable, beware of busy nights.

I went to this restaurant with four other people and arrived at about 7pm on Saturday night. Understandably, it was quite crowded and it took a bit before we get a table, but it moved surprisingly quick for how packed the place was.

I don't live in Asheville so I shouldn't compare sushi here to sushi in NYC. There was nothing wrong with the sushi here - they were fresh and creative, but I guess it was just an ordinary Japanese place. The staff was really courteous and friendly though, and the restaurant itself seemed nicely decorated and clean.

My first visit here was a good ten years ago, I've visited off and on since then, and, sadly, Green Tea is not what it used to be. Went went for Christmas lunch (not much else was open) and had 4 different rolls (2 regular and 2 "special") and two different salads, plus tea. The salads were pretty good (green... More

Great service and surprising variety. Even with full restaurant they were quick with the food and it was all perfect. Quaint yet cozy atmosphere.

My family dined here while visiting Asheville. The food was good, but the menu seemed a bit all over the place. It tried to bridge the gap between "Americanized" Asian food to please the Western Palet and more authentic Asian cuisine. I would have preferred a more authentic Chinese or Japanese menu, but that is just my opinion. We had... More

My wife and I went in for lunch during a weekend in Asheville and were immediately greeted by very friendly staff. We were seated right away and placed our orders, beef negimake and 2 maki lunch specials. The food came out pretty quickly and was quite good. The taste of the bagel roll was just a little off, but certainly... More

Lunch with a friend. Food was average. Green tea was very weak. Very bland. The floor was not clean and the mens room was dirty.

This is the second time we have been here with some friends of ours. There were 6 of us and we were seated promptly. The decor and atmosphere were great. It gives the feeling of stepping out of the ordinary the moment you walk through the door. The soups and salad I sampled were average, but good. I had the... More
