The food was good, we have eaten quite a bit of sushi and this stood up well. The Lapu Lapu special was nice and the general preperation was authentic and tasty. Nothing spectacular but a solid menu and no too pricey. Would go back.

Best sushi in Cebu. Unbeatable. Pricey but definitely worth it. The lunch menu is easier on the wallet. If you want great Japanese food, go to Azabu in Lahug.

We ate at its newest branch at Robinsons Galleria and the place was empty except for two tables including ours. This is a great place to meet up with boisterous friends, no worries in disturbing other diners. They offer the usual Japanese fare except for the teppanyaki. Food is good , service is excellent.

Authentic japanese food. We always dine here with family and friends due to the convenient and accessible location. Food is very tasty and sometimes we have it delivered to our area. This is the go to place for fresh and authentic japanese cuisine.

Although the wait staff were very accommodating, the place looks dated and the food was just so so.. One of the things we ordered was the gyudon, and for 400+ i don't feel like it was worth it at all. i would not pay 200 for that bowl. the meat was tough and it looked dry and sad. There are...

For us, Azabu, is the go to place for good Japanese food. It never fails to give us that satisfaction of getting our money's worth--fresh premium ingredients used in making traditional and fusion Japanese cuisine. Favorites include New Style Sashimi, the Azabu bento box and Creme Bruleé, more importantly, we can always order items not found in their menu like... More

Located roughly across Gororordo from JY Square. Minimalist interior. Ordered the Aazabu Bento. Thought it was a bit overpriced. Recalled that there used to be more authentic Japanese food on A.S. Fortuna years ago. However, did not feel like fighting increasingly congested traffic to revisit those other places. Aazabu is much more convenient to the Nivel Hills area. Debated whether... More

We're Searching for a Japanese restaurant in Cebu.. Good thing we have read a travel magazine and saw an advertisement of this restaurant.. My boyfriend said we'll give it a try... The place was really nice... They got a great selection of sushi... They made it to the finest.. Everything was yummy and delicious.. Worth the price!!
