Nothing special from the food. Place could use a good deep cleaning. Easy to find and they have a drive through.

We took my Son and his family out for supper Sunday evening. We all loved the food. It had been a while since we ate at Asahi's, But we all agreed the food was good and we even had some leftovers to take home. We...will be going back next time we are in Lenoir City again.More

I ordered and paid for my meal at the front counter and told the host that I had cash for a tip. She said I could put it on my table or give it to my server. A nice older gentleman brought me my salad...and drink and another copy of the receipt. After he brought me my meal, he must have figured I was not going to tip him, because he never came back over to ask how it was nor to ask if I needed a box. I was waiting to ask for a box but could not catch his eye to motion to him about it. I forgave him and left a tip and walked out without anyone saying good-bye. I had taken a picture of my food and was going to write an excellent review, because the food was delicious. Poor service like that does not make people want to return. Too bad. I hope they will correct this for future guests.More

We had a wonderful meal on Sunday afternoon. Not too crowded and service was excellent. Food came out fast & our server checked with us many times to see if we needed anything and were enjoying our meals. I had the Teriyaki Vegetable meal with...steamed rice & salad. Everything was fresh, delicious and seasoned just right. My husband had the Teriyaki Chicken with fried rice & salad. As per the sign on our table, I “Liked” the restaurants Facebook page & received 1 free Spring roll. It was served fresh, hot & delicious. We recommend this restaurant. Parking is around back. They also offer drive-thru service.More

We eat here a good bit! The food is excellent and always more than enough to eat. It doesn't matter if you eat in the restaurant or order it to go, it's still the same quality and tons of food with your order. There's so...much on a plate you can share it with someone or have another meal out of it for later. The people there are very friendly! Some times are more busy than others but it's worth the wait. We love to eat here!More

It is fresh and the servers are super nice. I wish it was a little cheaper for those combination meals.

Enjoyed the re-opening of this Japanese Grill. Loved the former family and this new one seems just as nice. A few changes were made and they were all great. Lunch was tasty, service was great. I got the Hibachi chicken/steak that now comes with a...salad which was yummy also. In my picture the salad was already gone, sorry!More

Food was better than it was before, but the ordering at the front counter doesn’t work because makes the line grow, and makes guest feel rush.

Good Asian fare. Great value for the price. Owners very personable. They recognize us always as well as their other patrons. They are young go getters who aren't afraid to work and they take very good care of their customers.

The food at Asahi is always good and you get a lot of food for the price. Two people can easily split a dinner and have plenty to eat unless one of you has a huge appetite. In that case take a to go box,...its just as good the next day.More

The food is good. the grill show is expensive and you can't start until they have enough at the grill. I now eat on the non grill side and the service was amazing. The man that made the sushi rolls served them himself as the...waitress was very busy. The main noodle dishes we had were ample and we were happy to have a to go box. You can get Japanese tea, beer and saki here. This new management are very nice. It does seem as if most of the staff are actually Chinese. Once you eat there you will know the size of the portions and will adjust accordingly. We will be back.More

The amount of the servings here is unbelievable. We always each take half of our meal home. And the shrimp stir fry dinner is wonderful; therefore, I have not ordered anything else. The decor and atmosphere is certainly lacking but the food and low price...make up for that.More
