Its one of those times where you kick yourself because you did not believe the ratings other people left. Its around the corner from where we stay so we decided to try them out. On Tuesdays they have a "buy 2 get 3rd for free" special, so my wife ordered the salmon roses (3 portions of 6 pieces), and I... More

The food was OK. Sushi was reasonable but not great by any stretch. Too much rice was used and I have seen more professional results. The service was a bit slow and they forgot some things. They served a bottle of white and of red wine at summer room temperature of about 25 deg. You can't store or serve wine... More

A very good destination for a quick family meal. The Sushi was good, but the main courses (hot food) were very average. Good value if you are not expecting top notch food and service. We will probably eat there again.

I reviewed Best of Asia quite awhile ago on TA as it's been our go-to neighbourhood sushi spot for years. Sadly, we'll have to find a new spot. The restaurant is under new ownership and while that means a few cosmetic improvements (like re-covering the worn chairs), unfortunately the sushi is not great anymore. The sushi chefs have all been... More

I'm not a sushi expert, but the sushi I received here was the worse ever. Tuna maki with the tuna still slightly frozen and dry rice . Just not a good experience. The best thing was the Coke Zero.

Consistently good sushi, and take away is fast and efficient. Nothing flash, just very tasty and good value.

Hmmm...one of those places where you don't know if you're eating the real thing or a horse. In fact tonight I ordered a takeaway meal and it came to me within about 2 minutes - granted the place was deadly quiet but when I got home my crispy chicken was terribly firm - like it had been the order of...

Good all rounder. The sushi bar is a highlight but don't underestimate the rest of the menu. Ideal for a quick stop while your car is being washed at nearby Libri car wash (at Hirsch) . Friendly service and a great miso soup. Love the coconut milk drink and take aways also an option. Some weekday evenings have sushi specials... More
