“Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We often eat sushi. This restaurant actually has Japanese sushi chefs. The dishes were fresh and creative. Pricing was reasonable.

“Great hibachi meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

I'm not a sushi fan, so I had hibachi shrimp & chicken. Wow, it was GREAT! The whole meal was fantastic. Good atmosphere.

“Great sushi in downtown Asheville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Surprisingly nice sushi restaurant on Broadway! I say surprisingly since it doesn't look like much from the road, but inside it's a really nicely decorated up-scale restaurant. On a Saturday night without a reservation, we were quickly seated and I was happily surprised that the crowds hadn't found Kubos...yet.

Service was great and the food was top-notch, with the exception of some heavy handed ladling of ginger dressing on a starter salad. The rolls were all beautifully prepared, tasted fresh and offered great value for the money. They have plenty of basic roll options around the $6 range then speciality rolls around $12. For two people 3 basic rolls and one speciality roll was more than enough. Great find in downtown Asheville for sushi!

“Great Thai & Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We love thai & sushi and were very happy with both at Kubo's. The kids loved the Pad Thai & spicy tuna rolls and we loved the curry & thai basil! Casual atmosphere and the lunch prices were extremely reasonable! We'll be back!
