I had a dinner here on my own. Scallops with foie gras was mouthwatering. Kobe beef on hot rock excellent. The only thing that wasn't as good is the sushi rice. The fish or seafood was of good quality but the rice too dry. Maybe spoiled but i think If they improve on that it deserved a 5star rating. Furthermore,... More

Pleasantly surprised! We are picky about sushi. The sushi here was excellent. Our daughter is a huge salmon fan and loved it. The service was simply top notch, could not have been better. We sat inside and were treated very well. Dessert was surprisingly good (the chocolate cake!). We'd certainly come back.

Pleasantly surprised. The rolls were excellent, get the dragon lady! Great spot for dinner & definitely reasonably priced.

Came here for some drinks and a few things to eat. This definitely seems like one of those "local" bars where everyone comes to meet up with friends or to socialize for a post work day happy hour. The sushi is quite excellent and the bartender is friendly and fast.

If u want to find a Japanese food for late dinner downtown, that's the place! It is a bar type of restaurant with Jap food. Sushi is fresh & not too much msg in udon soup which is what we liked.

This isn't bad sushi, just overpriced. When I went, they charged me $4.47 for unagi sauce on 3 handrolls. This is just outrageous.

The boyfriend and I were just wandering around downtown and stumbled upon Azuma. Place wasn't too busy and the service was quick. Sushi was okay but we did like the Ox Tail Curry Soba. Nice relaxed restaurant, good atmosphere.

We had a good dinner here on a Friday night. Service was lightning fast. Our sushi was very good. We got the cajun roll, sumo roll, and I thought the Azuma roll but that one was super spicy, so maybe it ended up being something else? The Asari miso soup was good as far as miso goes, but you're paying... More

Very good ambience and excellent service. We let the server choose for our diverse table and he nailed it. Great mix of traditional fare plus some excellent and creative specialty rolls.
