We went there Saterday evening for Sushi. Should have realized something is wrong when the 2 restaurants next to this one was very busy and only 3 tables were occupied when we arrived.

We have been going to Asian Asia since it opened. There have been 3 owners during that time each bringing a new twist and interesting dishes to the menu. We have eaten sushi in Cape Town in various location but always end up returning to this restaurant due to the great value and selection of sushi it offers. The waterfront... More

We visited this restaurant with a large group for birthday dinner. I was initially not looking forward to visiting this establishment because of the bad reviews published on trip advisor. So before I get into the review, I want to get some facts straight. The restaurant is under new ownership since January so the reviews published before that should be... More

For a good time with friends and reasonable priced good sushi, go for it. If... More

This place was disappointing. We had the "Eat as much as you can" for R149.00. We were waiting for 20min until our first plate came and the Restaurant was not full. The sushi was not good at all. Wasabi and soja sauce was flavourless and so was the food. We ordered a sweet corn soup which we just sent back... More

The manager is terrible. Very rude and the sushi actually made me gag. There was a Cockroach crawling on the sushi belt infront of us, and that is when we settled our bill and left. Ew.

The service was great, the sushi was good. Had a huge variety. We often eat sushi on the eat as much as toy can deals and I'll most definitely come back. For those that don't like sushi, they have plenty other food on the menue.

Will never go back there again. Disgusting sushi. Dry rice. Smelly salmon Cockroaches. Came out from under the belt. Poor service. Waiters kept forgetting tge orders. Food took forever to be served. The owner\manager was really cocky with customers. Waaaaaay overpriced.
