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
