I eat sushi at least once everywhere I travel. I have to say, to find a gem in Greensboro, NC is probably hard to believe, but it was excellent. I was greeted right away and I ordered a small Ichiban. I then did my pencil order and turned it in. I ordered the miso and edamame to start. The... read more

Honestly, I travel all over the USA and different parts of the world, including Japan. the sushi chef (Steve) is traditional Japanese but with enough American to create some of the best rolls or traditional sushi you will ever eat. For a small city like Greensboro, we sure have one of the best sushi restaurants in the USA.

My family has been going to the Asahi since it opened. My children have had their birthdays celebrated there for years and now my 6 year old grandchildren always want to go there to see the man who cooks with fire. They went tonight as it was their birthday (twins) and they had such a good time. They love the... More

We were there for a Christmas party so I was a little concerned with over 40 people showing up at once but they did a great job. Service was good. Mee our cook was funny and entertaining. We had a sample of sushi which my husband enjoyed. The tempura was light and not greasy. The mayo sauce was the first... More

Best food ever. Very nice sushi bar and table serves was great. I have eaten here multiple times and found it to be wonderful. Everything from the food to the people was spectacular. The owner even came to speak with us at the table making sure we were happy with our food. The portions where a little large at the... More

This was suggested to us by someone who "loves" it. Not sure why because it was in the Top 5 worst eating experiences we've had. We got yelled at by the Asian lady after being seated in the hibachi area after SPECIFICALLY telling them we were here for Sushi. Once our menus were snatched from us and we were pointed... More

This was by far the worst meal I have had in a very long time and the worst Japanese meal ever. The service was very poor. I was out of water half way through the meal and no one refilled it till the meal was over. Very disappointing.

My wife and I have eaten dinner at the Asahi Japanese Steak House, located at 4520 W. Market St., twice in the past three weeks. On each occasion the food was excellent and so was the service. In my business travels I have been in Japan a great number of times over the years and I came to realize that... More

Every time I'm in Greensboro I always try my best to visit Asahi for Dinner. They have a full service Hibachi restaurant but I usually sit by the sushi bar. You could see the owner behind the counter at the sushi bar. The restaurant is run by the husband and wife who are both unbelievably hospitable and accommodating. The sushi... More
