Great value

This restaurant is a great value. The food is always good and the portions are huge. We've rarely had to wait long, and I find that it's a great place to go with kids...lots of good food for a reasonable price.

Always go when the buffet is first put out, know the times. It is fresh and always so good. Love the sushi bar, fresh ginger and soup. Also have tasted the best hot wings here, Free birthday buffet, show your ID. Good service here.

Though the ambiance isn't terribly special, the food and the service are excellent. If you want a really good meal at a decent price, this is the place!

Went in and girl was sitting down at the front with a frown on her face. Said have a seat. Sat down and the tables were disgusting. Food was splattered all over the walls. Waitress was nice but very slow. Ordered the chicken and shrimp entree and it took 30 mins to come out even though the waitress told us... More

These guys can cook! Went with my son and grandson and we all had excellent meals. Sushi was fresh, delicious and well presented. Shrimp and Scallops were tremendous, they don't scrimp on the seafood and it was cooked perfectly. The veggies and rice were perfect as well. My grandson enjoyed a chicken dish and said it was excellent as well.... More

This place is average for a local dive but for TripAdvisor I say if you're visiting Asheville you'll be sorely disappointed. The location is in the heart of a traffic quagmire, you might get there but you may never leave. The food was bland, clearly mushrooms from a can, unseasoned chicken and streak. What was worse was my decision to... More

From the good reviews, we picked this and learned that was a mistake. First, it is not cooked in front of you which is okay. However, the prices are about the same as the places where they do cook it in front of you. You basically place your order at a counter and then sit in the dining room which... More

Surrounded by 4 fast-food joints, Asaka is one step above that level of restaurant in that they have sit down table service. Not that the food is bad, it's just not high quality. You certainly get your money's worth; the servings are large. A side salad for $2.60 turned out to be a platter of iceberg lettuce, a couple slices... More

I ate at Asaka this evening which I do frequently when going to Asheville for a shopping day . I had the vegetable entrée (approx. $5.25) which is huge helping of stir-fried vegetables (onions, mushrooms, squash, broccoli) with sides of fried rice and Japanese carrots with delicious shrimp sauce and an added huge salad for about $2.60. Entrée is delicious... More

Asaka is a great place for some quick Japanese style food. The food has an excellent flavor. The service is very good. And the price is reasonable.
