Our history is originally started in Japan as acoeAsakuma Restaurantac and after opening the 150th stores there, we opened our first U.S. store in West Los Angeles in 1985. Since that first store opening, Asakuma Restaurant has been earning its great reputation for its taste, freshness and quality for over 25 years in the United States. With immediate glow of Sushi popularity, we started Sushi Delivery Stores along with our restaurants in 1998, 1999 and 2000 located in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Marina del Rey, to meet the demand of our customers and our delivery service is loved by a lot of people in L.A. with itac2s conveniences. We provide fresh and the best quality Sushi delivered directly to your home and office, very convenient delivery system that customers no longer needs to wait standing in a long line and can same time for picking up or making decision and tell chefs what you want to order.
I love the atmosphere which is quiet and lends itself for conversations. I have been there yearly for my birthday celebration bringing guests there. However, this last visit, the salads were smaller than in the last 8-10 years I have been there. The food is wonderful. Being a vegetarian, I love your salads. The service is very good, nice waiters and waitresses.
Asakuma's main perk is that it is a sushi restaurant that delivers, and the staff is very nice. However, although the sushi sometimes looks and tastes fresh, I have gotten sick on 3 separate occasions of ordering from here (out of a total of 6). The first time I got sick, I had the spicy tuna bowl. The second and third time was from their sashimi. I guess I'll have to keep looking for a sushi restaurant that delivers because it's just not worth the risk of getting sick.
I would rank this place as one of the best Japanese restaurants in LA. My co-workers held a going away party there- it was great! They have a semi-private banquet room that is usually available (so I was told), free of charge so long as you have a decent # of people in your party. Service was excellent and the food was to die for!! I'm going back next week with my family. Try the black cod- you'll love it!
I went there last night after hearing about it from a few friends. My date and I ordered 2 tuna 6pc , 1 fatty tuna, 3 salmon, 2 albacore, 2 eel. None of that mayonaise, deep fried, americanized, baked nonsense. If you like that stuff, there's a McDonald's across the street. My favorite was the fresh salmon which melted in my mouth. The salmon was the perfect texture, not too chewy or too rubbery. Think of a baby's butt. Coming in a very-close 2nd, was the albacore. The albacore had green onions and a light ginger dressing. All the fish on every piece of sushi we had seemed to be top quality and fresh as the morning breeze.
Be warned....the sushi here ain't cheap. I believe the average 2 pc sushi is around $6. So if you're a pig like me and my date, ok ok I ate way more than her....her loss... you're looking at spending $90-100 with a couple of cold ones to wash down with the perfection. So, yeah it might be a little pricey, but it's soooo worth it, plus it's helping the owners pay that sky high Brentwood rent. I'll just have to Super Size myself across the street for a couple weeks to recuperate my bank account.
