We live in Western NC, so we visit Asheville quite often. If you like sushi, this is the joint!
The ingredients are always fresh. Specials always amaze. The chefs are super friendly and entertaining.
The only down side is that over past couple of years the serving staff seems to be dropping the ball. We noticed that when the management hired few new servers, the service level has dropped a bit. Thankfully, after few times being seated in a new server section and being disappointed, now they let us choose which server's section we want to seat. We have a couple Indonesian servers that we know the service will be super polite and attentive.
Aside from sushi bar the restaurant has a big area with Hibachi grills, which are a great choice for families, or when you bring somebody with you that never seen this kind of performance before. They will be amazed and entertained will by the chefs.
Go there, and you will not be disappointed.
