Sashimi Heaven – My husband & I visited this exquisite restaurant, on one of our latest "date night" adventures. We were pleasantly surpised by the freshness of the sashimi! It also had some of the freshest Uni (sea urchin) we had ever had... I would highly recommend the Azuma special (Chef's choice) sashimi platter. Beautifully presented, this dish was by far worth every penny! My husband & I share everything we order, so I'm glad to say we only ordered one. The delectable sashimi morsels were arranged across a bed of ice, that rotated on the platter. If you love sashimi, you'll love Azuma's!
Good Choice for Sushi Fix – Azuma's is a great choice for fresh sushi, drinks, crowd watching, and Japanese Udon noodles (which i love.) There's no hibachi tableside cooking here, but if you're a sushi fan, you will not be disappointed. The sushi is freshly prepared, and the atmosphere is both pleasant and serene.
Best Happy Hour For Sushi, Drinks And A Good Time – I stumbled into Azuma to have a couple of drinks for happy hour after work and ended up staying until the restaraunt closed because I was having such a great time. The bartender Leon kept my friends and I entertained the whole night with fabulous drinks and excellent service. He also convinced me to try a few sushi rolls, including the Red Devil and the Volcano Roll. Now I am addicted because the sushi was so amazing. I highly recommend Azuma for food, drinks and atmosphere. The happy hour menu has a great selection of drinks and food if you're worried about the cost. This is absolutely the best sushi in town.
Best Sushi in Houston! – This is the best place to bring your "virgin" sushi eaters!!! All the specialty rolls are good; especially the Crazy Irishman, Patriot and Sumo Roll. And if you feel like getting a little tipsy, go for the Hot Saki. It comes in several flavors. This is the best sushi restaurant in town, hands down! About the service? Well I think it's perfect... I hate a bothersome waiter/waitress. Let's just say they keep the drinks coming and bring the bill when I've sat back in my chair in the "I've eaten like a pig" position. The price is reasonable for what you're getting. You could go to a cheaper sushi bar, but then your "virgin" probably won't come back for more. Floor seating is available for that authentic feel...
Very personable, friendly, great sushi – Wow! I highly recommend sitting at the bar. We started off somewhere else with a bad start and happened to wander in here to have a drink. Even though we had already eaten we decided to try one of their signature rolls and we very impressed. The bartender Leon recommended another one that is not on the menu and fell in love with it. Very delicious and outstanding. Leon was very interactive with us through the whole evening we were there. Talk about great service. Our visit here definitely salvaged our evening.
good sushi...but service..what service – The sushi was pretty good. Not really any better than a few other places that I already frequent. The service....what service. Had to wait 15 minutes before anyone even came over to take a drink order. Then the waiter was no where to be seen. Had to wait a VERY long time for the sushi and cooked entree. No excuse for this. There was only 3 other tables in the entire restaurant. I won't be going back. The prices are too high for such aweful service. Unique rolls but I kind find unique rolls at other small sushi restaurants and have great service.
Awesome Sushi Restaurant – I haven't had sushi for 2 years and this was the best sushi I have ever had. The cost wasn't that bad either considering the fact that we ate so much. But anyway I recommend this restaurant to any sushi lover.
Great Sushi – Best I had in Houston. Patriot and Crazy Irishman are a must. Sushi is very fresh. Great environment. Price is a little steep, but then again I only splurge once in a while.
Awesome Sushi – Top 5 Sushi in town. The chefs are very creative and accommodating. Sit at the sushi bar, have a drink and enjoy the food. Ambiance and atmosphere is very nice.
Service is CONSTANTLY TERRIBLE!!! – There's always something missing in the to-go orders, and they wouldn't even deliver after messing it up, even within a BLOCK!
