“disappointed”
Review of Asahi Japanese Restaurant - CLOSED

Asahi Japanese Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 November 2015

we have been to Asahi for special events a few times and really enjoyed their food, this time we went on 21st October and it was disapointing.
We booked in via phone earlier in the day (6 adults) and said we had limited time as we were booked for a movie that night.
We were served by a lovely young man with american accent. We stated that we had a gluten free diner and asked what they had available. He went and asked the kitchen staff.. he returned with the 2 meal options (other than sushi). She chose one and I asked once more-its' definitely gluten free?? he said yes. Our meals were served in good time, and my mother in law started eating her meal. About 5 minutes later the young man returned to say, sorry, there is some gluten in the sauce. He could cook another and replace. - however we had minimal time and she'd already eaten quite a bit of it. But it really disrupted the evening as she didn't want to ruin our dinner out and we were in a rush to get tot he movie premiere... I expected that we wouldn't have to pay for that meal that was not what we'd orderd (she didn't eat it all).. but they still charged me for it.... disappointing!

Not recommended at all, they got sushi from the neighbouring fast food sushi bar and tasted very bad. The waitress spoke limited english and had a hard time understanding us.

The worst ever tasting japanese food in this entire world. The waitress kept on looking at us when we ate. It made us felt very uncomfortable. One word to describe it: HORRIBLE

Truly awful. Not actual sushi. Solid "blocks" of rice with deep fried junk on top... How you're supposed to eat "sushi" that size with chopsticks is completely beyond me. Total waste of $50. We couldn't eat it asked for a to go box because we were embarrassed and then chucked it away this morning :( will try Eagle sushi next time... Have heard good things about that one.
