Was in Lexington on business. Ended up going here twice. Second time had the Chirashi Bowl and VIP roll. The bowl was excellent with a good variety and very fresh sashimi. The roll was also excellent and came on a flaming dish. Really enjoyed this meal and would recommend this place to anyone.

My girlfriend and I ordered a Teppanyaki Steak, spicy tuna roll, and chicken fried rice which came to over $40, so this place is relatively expensive for Lexington. The food was pretty good, but not spectacular Japanese food. The steak was cooked correctly and had a decent sear, but it was not overly tender. The teriyaki sauce with the steak... More

Our family of 5 ate here while staying in a nearby hotel. Our kids loved the hibachi table 'show'. Portions were very generous and the steak/shrimp tepanyakki was delicious. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.

Slow service - we waited at the bar until a table was ready - but it was one of the few places open Christmas day. Sushi was great.

We went to this restaurant for my sons birthday. We had a party of 13 and we had called ahead for reservations. The place was very busy, service was fast and friendly. The dining room and all public areas were clean. Everyone seemed happy with the menu choices and bragged about their entrees. I loved the presentation. Our chef put... More

Excellent selection of sushi, prepared and presented with flare. The sushi is great, try the crunchy one, just ask for the crunchy sushi. The show that the chefs put on for you at the grills traditional and entertaining. Great show, great sushi and great grilled flavor.

I took my daughter to Asuka to try out the sushi. I was not that impressed. I've definitely had better sushi from other Lexington Japanese restaurants. They were also overpriced. I've had the same sushi other places that actually tasted better and cost less. It's not horrible but it's not great. The environment was nice though and the flaming sushi... More

We love sushi and try new places as often as we can in other cities - Louisville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, New York... This sushi is hands down the best. Regardless if you come for lunch or dinner, I've never been disappointed.

We eat here several times a year as well as the Nicholasville location. Service was great, food was excellent as always. Chef made it entertaining for the kids, even though they are old hands at eating hibachi.
