I love the hot rock beef, you cook it yourself over a cooking rock at the table. The red devil roll are very good. The shrimp tempura is worth getting. The service was good. Our server was Lana #2. You don't like sushi stay with the hot rock beef. Stan H.

Had a lunch here on a pre cruise trip very quiet lunchtime service very ordinary. Food could and should have been much better. Portions were way too late and there was insufficient sauce with the dishes.

On a recent warm April night, I stopped into Azuma for some sushi. I was solo and asked to sit outside, which was not a problem.The service was not up to par. The server treated me as if I was a bother. Questions were answered by looking at anyone other than me. A request about a specific liquor was met... More

I had a fried soft shell crab salad that was very good but the sushi roll (Santura I believe) could have been more flavorful. The service was adequate.

When my colleague ordered a Crazy Irishman I thought he was joking. Turned out to be a pretty decent maki roll. I preferred the Toro Crunch which was a little spicy but very appetizing. The restaurant looked great and service was fantastic. I've had sushi around the world and at much better places but this restaurant did the trick for... More

Stopped in solo at lunch to enjoy a roll and a glass of cab. Attentive bartender and the sushi roll was well presented. Opened a bottle of Simi to "top off" my glass. Not sure I would merge wine from 2 bottles for a single glass but ok. Try the moon roll.

I love sushi, have eaten it all over the world. This one was pretty good... I have had better and have had worse. Tasted fresh. Prices during happy hour were very good. Service was decent, not spectacular though. I'd go again if I was in the area, but wouldn't go out of my way.

Took trip advisors advise and visited this restaurant. We loved the edamame beans, pork dumplings, smoked park rolls , pineapple chicken and the fried banana. The serve staff were great and the decor was nice
