Avoid it. Worst service I have ever experienced at any restaurant. When I called and complained, I was told it was their "soft opening". Of course, no one bothered mentioning that little factoid to me when I went in. Also, it was nice knowing that after being their guinea pig in order for Asahi to work out their kinks so to speak that I got charged full price.

I guess I have never expected much in the way of service at the old Asahi.


How do you get the worst service ever when all they do is bring you a glass of water and your sushi order?

This Asahi is also a sit down dinner and hibachi restaurant (a la Osaka). As for the bringing water, ten minutes after Asahi seated me, no server came to our table to take a beverage order. In fact, the only reason a server showed up in any timely manner was because I went to the bar to get a glass of water for the family and the bartender told our server. I even had to go to the bar to get a "to go" box. It took nearly ten minutes to pay the freakin bill.

Edited: I will not elaborate on the rest of the "service" issues I had in my nearly two hour stay at this place.

Thanks for the heads up. I will avoid this place. I am not a big sushi fan anyway.

I know the family that owns Asahi.  They are usually very attentive at the old place, almost to the point of annoyance.
Soft openings are always dangerous when you allow the general public in.  It can really develop a frame of reference that is difficult to escape in the future.

Soft openings should always be handled by invitation only with the understanding of what it is.....With no charge on the food....

I ate at the old Asahi once.  So not impressed.

Is Flying Fish still going strong at 111th & Memorial?  I thought they were pretty good, just very inconvenient for me.

Thanks for the clarification.   Sounds like I will stick with the sushi joint and skip the hibachi.

Yep. Folks shouldn't pay to be a lab rat.
The problem here was there was no notice of it being a "soft opening". In fact it appeared the place had been open for several days. I even called in advance to make a reservation and they told me I could be seated with no problem.

From the sounds of it, a bowl of smile.
