We enjoy oriental foods of all kinds so this was right up our alley. Sushi is well prepared, and eating around the grill is great entertainment as well as good food!

This restaurant has been the go-to place to celebrate birthdays and other milestones. "Monkey Boy" always remembers us and especially the shrimp allergy one of us has.

Hibachi is about the entertainment and great food.... this is neither. There was no entertainment even though our chef had a nice personality. The food was less than desirable. Even the rice was awful. I actually can't come up with one positive thing to say.

This restaurant has fallen on hard times. All the warning signs are evident when you walk in the front door. The entire restaurant needs a thorough cleaning. The current management has lost its focus. The food was barely edible. The smoked salmon sushi was inedible....More

We were pleasantly surprised...kind of. Walking up to the restaurant doors, we were a bit nervous because the place looked a bit sketchy. Once inside, we still felt a bit anxious but once we were (quickly) led to a table we were past the point...More

Growing up with a Japanese mother in California has spoiled me somewhat when it comes to Japanese food and sushi. Living in the midwest means not always having good ethnic food choices. The sushi we had at Asahi was very good, in fact it is...More

I see where one of your chefs was extremely rude toward a lesbian couple who went to your restaurant on Valentine's Day. I know you gave them a refund. But I'm curious about what other action you took. Does the homophobic chef still work for you?
