good lunch spot

My coworkers and I go here for lunch from time to time. Some things are a bit pricey but the daily lunch special can't be beat. Never left here hungry or unhappy. The service is usually quick as well.

I was alone in the restaurant ... Not a good sign... However the waitress was very nice to me and the glass of sake is above 12$... Seaweed salad was very small ad the sushi sad well. Based on that I can nor recommend that place. Deception here.

Delicious, fresh, authentic Japanese. $$ A little local gem in the heart of the city. Worth the visit. Would recommend.

This is where the Japanese eat Japanese food. The special dish is the fugi. Very reasonable prices for the high quality of food and service.

They always say that if the locals eat there, it is a good place to go. Chef made me a futomaki role that was not on the menu, and it was delicious. House sake and a custom roll and it was a great late night meal if you are in the area.

Sushi rice is supposed to have sushi vinegar flavor, but it was not at all. It was not sushi, it was rice ball. Skewers were ok, though.

I have gone Azusa numerous times over the years and it remains consistent. It is a good value for dining in midtown. The lunch specials are usually a good deal. It is a place where fiends meet for lunch. It is not your typical expense account type of restaurant. That being said they have not updated the decor in a... More

I have eaten a lot of Japanese food and so far, nothing beats Morimoto in Philly. However, Azusa was one of the worst Japanese meals/sushi I have ever had. From what I hear, it was on top of its game years ago--now I can't imagine it going much lower. All cooked food we got was fair to middlin' and the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
