I found Asahi because I was looking for the best sushi in the city, and this came highly recommended. We visited the restaurant on New Year's Eve, expecting long waits and huge crowds. Although it was incredibly busy, they kept business moving easily, and we were quickly seated and graciously served. Asahi is where you want to go if you are tired of the typical Japanese Steakhouse approach to Hibachi entertainment, and want to get into the art of epicurean delights in sampling Japanese-style dishes. In the Hibachi room, you are treated to excellent chefs, but in the sushi bar (also a seperate room, with a bar and booths), you may choose from hot and cold traditional Japanese dishes as well as an exceptional variety of creatively designed sushi options. Whether your desire is for something new or something tried and true, they have an answer to your cravings. Be sure to check out the spicy crab roll while you're there, which was served so incredibly fresh that the warm rice complimented the cool spiced crab salad marvelously.
The owner, Mr. Saito is a REAL Japanese master chef, and there are surprisingly abundant of REAL Japanese native cuisines in their menu. I have been in many Japanese restaurants in big cities from New York to Los Angeles, but I was totally impressed with this Greensboro, NC stop. Mr. Saito is from Onomichi, Japan (near Hiroshima), directly came to here N.C. not via New York, or any other US city over 35 years ago. His Sushi bar and all Japanese cuisine is REAL, of course, my family enjoy America-Japanese Tettpan (Steel) grill stake house menu as well, because all food materials are EXCELLENT quality so as all kinds of tasty souses.
This is by far the best kabab I've ever eaten in long time. Very generous portion. They offered me Salad, rice with nuts and raisin and also another vegetable side. Service is great. Decor is like sitting in a meuseum. The owner was there and he explained to us about the papyruses hanging on the wall, which are genuine authentic art, made by hand on actual papyrus. Every thing was just so amazing. I will definately go back very soon with my friends and family.
