This is one restaurant that’s a must do if you like Japanese food on a budget. The prices are affordable and the quality high, with plenty of volume. It has been 10 years now since returning from Japan and we regularly enjoy a taste some of our favourite dishes when visiting Sydney.

Asakusa offers fantastic value for money, first and foremost.

The atmosphere is, what I would call, University chic. This is Newtown and they know their target group.

The food is wonderful, and delivered by staff who are curteous but never intrusive.

This place is nothing out of the ordinary. The food is OK and the service is quite fast and good. They are quite cheap as well, so you see quite a turn over during the night. On weekends, you should better go early or be prepare to wait quite a bit.

There Asakusa boxes are fine but probably their hotpots are their best offering.

One good tip: if you drink beer, make sure you get the Kirin... it's fabulous!
