I use to go to Asahi more frequently, especially for Monday half-price sushi, but they have recently increased some of their entree prices. An avid customer for their chicken teriyaki, I typically ordered this dish for lunch because it was $8.95. Now the dish itself...More

When I entered on a Tuesday night, I wasn't confident that they were open because there was only one patron. While the staff wasn't especially friendly or outgoing, the service was efficient and the food was good. I ordered two different rolls, a miso soup...More

Half priced Mondays? They give you half a sushi roll so it's actually the same exact price. The quality is not as good as somewhere like koto but I like to eat local but not if the experience is horrible. Just bad service, they never...More

My wife and I were looking for something light this Sunday evening and decided sushi was the way to go. We tried a couple of places on the Syracuse University Hill, but they were both closed, and then remembered that our son recommended Asahi Sushi...More

The restaurant was empty when we walked in. The waitress didn't speak much English. The food was average, nothing too spectacular. They have a conveyor belt where sushi comes around the bar. It wasn't in use since there were no customers at 6:30 PM on...More

So I feel guilty writing this review, because they seemed very nice and they looked like they were trying very hard. But when I and the missus both have diarrhea the day after eating sushi, there's something wrong. Truth be told, that's just gratuitous, because...More

The food is terrific! The sushi is fresh, colorful, and delicious. The conveyor presents a lovely food parade, with tempting morsels winding past. Half priced Monday is the best deal in town. On the down side, the service is not always well organized, and the...More

Asahi is "conveyor-belt" sushi, a fast food Japanese place in Syracuse's University Hill neighborhood that offers sushi and other appetizer-style dishes (bits of tempura or salad, or sometimes Japanese-style mac&cheese!) on a rotating conveyor belt around a long sushi bar (you pay by the plate...More
