“Famous OX tail soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2014

We decided to try their famous OX tail soup. I ordered a small one, but it was just enough for me. The taste reminded me Vietnamese Pho, so I wish they had rice noodle in it. It was tasty to try as it is, and also nice to try with soy source and mustard.

“Ox Tail just okay at Ashai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

No star anise and few veggies make it regular. Jack's in Aina Haina better with more flavor. I would go to Zippys but the food is the same.

“Oxtail Soup & Fried Rice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

If one enjoys oxtail soup, this is the only place to order it. The flavor has not changed even though name of the restaurant has changed a couple of times. As for the Fried Rice, it is always a great way to start a day in Hawaii.
All of the menu selections are a very good value and the service has always been excellent.

“We always go back to Asahi Grill!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

When we cannot think of where else to eat lunch in town, we end up at Asahi Grill! The dining area shows wear and tear but the good food and attentive service makes up for it. The ox tail soup is the best in town (in our opinion, better than The Alley which was recently featured in Guy Fieri's DDD). The fish and local specials are always good, too. Parking is tight but we are always able to find parking in their tiny lot even at noon. Can't go wrong!

“Average food, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This place was easy to find, right next to a bank. Parking is limited, however after i parked and got seated the manager told me a spot had opened up so he saved it for me while i grabbed my truck, great guy. The food was average, but i did enjoy the service.
