What can I say? When we arrived and seated, the grill was noticably dirty. The cooks were trainees and less than entertaining. Beacuse they were trainees, staff was all around him watching his every move. That was awkward for him and us. It gets worse. The only seasoning he used was salt and lemon, and he used way too much... More

All I have to say is, WOW! This was SO good! We went to the teppan section and we not only payed for the enormous amount of food but we also payed for an exquisite performance. The chef made hearts, smiley faces etc. out of food! He threw most of the food in the air and caught it on his... More

Coming from Hawaii and having lived in Japan, our standards might be different. We have not dined grill side, but thoroughly enjoy the tempura, hamachi sashimi, rib eye, salmon skin roll, etc. The service is excellent, and the food fresh. The teppan grill can get busy, so reservations are recommended. The sushi seating area can be busy, but we have... More

We certainly enjoy the "show" part of the creation of dinner before our eyes! We don't go to a Teppan Grill often enough for the show to become too familiar, so it is always a treat! Food was mostly seasoned well and cooked to our liking. I would certainly come back to Azuma Sushi Teppan grill for a delightful, entertaining... More

It's always a treat to bring our grandkids here and watch the look on their faces as they are amazed at the Teppan Chefs cooking on the plancha. Food is always hot and fresh.

I love going to teppan grills back home and wasn't disappointed here. We went on a Friday around 6ish and had to wait for about 15-20 minutes for a family of 3 but of course we needed a few more people for the grill seating. We were seated with other couples and our waitress quickly took our orders. We did... More

Went w/ my BF who said this was the best Japanese in town. The cook could have been a lot more entertaining than he was. The food was just OK, portions just OK, service just OK. It was my first at this type of place and I enjoyed the experience. I've had better though so don't always believe your BF.

My boyfriend and I love this place. The food is cooked to perfection every time. The rice is my favorite and I can't leave there without eating the juicy shrimp. Mmmmm

I am from the Pacific Northwest and have grown accustomed to delicious fresh sushi. Visiting in ABQ and craving struck decided to test my luck for lunch at Azuma. I sat at the sushi bar. The sushi chef was most entertaining, witty, charming and funny. I ordered sashimi and was pleasantly surprised by the portion but more importantly the freshness.... More
