You can always tell a good sushi restaurant by the quality of their rice! Came here with some coworkers for lunch and was pleasantly surprised! I had the lunch special tofu teriyaki, it was served in a hot cast iron plate like fajitas, had onions, carrots and mushrooms. Served with white steamed rice and a choice of miso soup or... More

We arrived right before the dinner rush. Even though two of the three of us had meals that included miso soup and salad, they never came. Then, rolls came for one of us in the party...then one meal and then we had to ask about the third (teriyaki salmon). Finally, when it arrived, the waitress acknowledged that she never brought...

Was looking for out of downtown area place for Sushi during Derby 2016 and found this one on my phone with good ratings. It turned out to be so good, we decided to hit it two nights in a row. Fast, friendly place with excellent Sushi. And, they toss in a few extra plates to try for their guests to... More

Reliably excellent sushi and all Japanese food, and always excellent service. Been here dozens of times and the food is always good, the service is always polite and attentive. Excellence in St. Matthews, at a price that is frankly hard to fathom for this quality.

Usually the service is better and usually the food is too...maybe just an off day. I wouldn't order the chicken and shrimp lunch special again -- very salty and overcooked. Will do sushi next time since they are rated well for that. Just went for warm food on a cold day.

We always get the Monster Roll and the Lotus Roll. Fresh, fast and tasty. Usually no wait. Very quaint an cozy atmosphere with upscale style sushi without being pretentious.

This is probably the 10th visit and we have never been disappointed. Everything is fresh and the presentation is always great. The people there are always friendly and attentive. Try the fried Ice cream It looks like a sushi roll and the taste is yummy.

Don't know why it's taken me so long to check Asahi out, but now it will be in my regular lunch rotation! Had the Asahi house salad, miso soup & stir fried vegetables. All were good and there's much more on the menu in want to try. Parking around back with rear entrance makes this a no brainer--will be back!

I went to Asahi for a business lunch. I was a little nervous because when I arrived at 11:45am I was the only customer in the restaurant. However, my nervousness quickly went away soon after I tasted the food. The sushi was delicious. We had a Volcano roll and the yum yum roll. He had salmon teriyaki and I had... More

We were lucky enough to have Asahi recommended to us by a friend who lives in the area. Everything was just about perfect, from the fresh sushi in great flavor combinations, to the excellent and attentive service, to the presentation. Even kids who aren't sushi fans will love the place when they see the fire roll, which is lit at... More
