The boyfriend and I were just wandering around downtown and stumbled upon Azuma. Place wasn't too busy and the service was quick. Sushi was okay but we did like the Ox Tail Curry Soba. Nice relaxed restaurant, good atmosphere.

We had a good dinner here on a Friday night. Service was lightning fast. Our sushi was very good. We got the cajun roll, sumo roll, and I thought the Azuma roll but that one was super spicy, so maybe it ended up being something else? The Asari miso soup was good as far as miso goes, but you're paying... More

Very good ambience and excellent service. We let the server choose for our diverse table and he nailed it. Great mix of traditional fare plus some excellent and creative specialty rolls.

I love the hot rock beef, you cook it yourself over a cooking rock at the table. The red devil roll are very good. The shrimp tempura is worth getting. The service was good. Our server was Lana #2. You don't like sushi stay with the hot rock beef. Stan H.

Had a lunch here on a pre cruise trip very quiet lunchtime service very ordinary. Food could and should have been much better. Portions were way too late and there was insufficient sauce with the dishes.

On a recent warm April night, I stopped into Azuma for some sushi. I was solo and asked to sit outside, which was not a problem.The service was not up to par. The server treated me as if I was a bother. Questions were answered by looking at anyone other than me. A request about a specific liquor was met... More

I had a fried soft shell crab salad that was very good but the sushi roll (Santura I believe) could have been more flavorful. The service was adequate.

When my colleague ordered a Crazy Irishman I thought he was joking. Turned out to be a pretty decent maki roll. I preferred the Toro Crunch which was a little spicy but very appetizing. The restaurant looked great and service was fantastic. I've had sushi around the world and at much better places but this restaurant did the trick for... More
