The first thing I noticed when I walked into this restaurant is the odor. There is an undercurrent smell of urine. I almost left without eating. Wish I had. Turns out, the odor comes from the bathroom which smells so badly that you can smell it at the front door. The dining area is run down and they do little... More

Normally I wouldn't review a fast food type restaurant ( like a McDonald's ). But this place needs some work in two areas for sure First, and most important: it's Japanese food. So I'm thinking shrimp with yum yum sauce and fried rice. The shrimp quality was extremely low and every shrimp ( and I mean every shrimp) contained its... More

I found the food to be fantastic for the price and at the speed it was produced. Pretty standard strip mall Japanese decor, but no big deal. The service was friendly, and the portions were huge, especially by Asheville granola standards. I even found it worth driving into Biltmore Village during the day, which is saying alot!

A good amount of food for the price. Several times have been to other Japanese steak house close by and wished I ate at asaka instead.

My husband and I are locals to the Asheville area. We love the food at Asaka, but every time we go the service is awful. We were going to Asaka at least twice a week but the service has gotten so bad we don't not go anymore unless it's for takeout. I highly recommend getting takeout, the food is great.... More

I've have to be honest, when my husband and I walked into Asaka's restaurant, we were thinking, hmm..this place has all the class of an old greasy Dairy Queen. We were even thinking about high tailing it out of there. But when we saw the Asian man carry food to the people at the table next to us, I said... More

I went to Asaka a couple of weeks ago. I had the Teriyaki Steak and it was very good. The rice and carrots were very good as well. They give you more than enough to eat and it is reasonably priced.

Always go when the buffet is first put out, know the times. It is fresh and always so good. Love the sushi bar, fresh ginger and soup. Also have tasted the best hot wings here, Free birthday buffet, show your ID. Good service here.

Though the ambiance isn't terribly special, the food and the service are excellent. If you want a really good meal at a decent price, this is the place!
