A friend took me here for my birthday lunch and we sat outside on a beautiful day. We had excellent service and food at reasonable prices. I certainly look forward to returning and have recommended it to friends.

My wife and eat here about once a month. We take family and friends here because of the spectacular ocean views from the outside patio. Service is always attentive even if you sit outside. There are patio umbrellas if it's real sunny. All the normal Japanese items including a great lunch bento. The food is just average for Japanese, but... More

My wife and I had a couple of hours to kill while we were waiting for our kids to finish up attending a birthday party in San Pedro. The host parents recommended this place about 8 miles away. What a find! It had been about 20+ since I had been in PV, and I had forgotten about how far away... More

Got take-out during weekday lunch. They had 5-6 special rolls listed on the chalkboard. We got 3, and all were delicious. It is very popular for lunch, with outdoor seating overlooking the Pacific Ocean (from a perch). The lunch bowls were also delicious and came with big portions. Would definitely return.

This restaurant is near our home, and we consider it an easy solution for family dinner. My husband gets the sushi, I get the teriyaki chicken and my girls get the tempura and Udon noodles. The service is friendly, the view of the ocean is amazing and the food is OK. Too bad the food is not better as I... More

The food is standard Japanese restaurant fare, udon, tempura, sushi selection. Well priced - we had huge meals at lunch for less than $10 each. The food is well prepared, fresh - but don't expect a gourmet experience. The view is spectacular - a panorama of the Pacific. Service friendly & efficient.

I wish the food would be a bit better because there are not many restaurants with a view like that. It is definitely below average and it is hard to understand why they can't do a better job.

I always enjoy eating at Asaka restaurant in the Golden Cove Shopping Center. It sits on the western edge of the plaza and offers wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. I usually go to Asaka for lunch, and typically order one of the lunch specials -- delicious, good-sized meals at very reasonable prices. For me, eating seaside on the outdoor... More

I love that area in general and the restaurant has great seating outside, very comfortable and cozy with a great view. However, the food is nothing to brag about, especially that chicken. I ordered the California Bento (I believe it was called), California rolls, with teriyaki chicken... The chicken was cold and tasteless.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday there. He had just looked up good sushi restaurants nearby. We were just hoping for delicious food, and what we got was amazing. The food was delicious and the setting was amazing - overlooking the ocean at sunset was perfect!
