This was the third time I had a terrible experience at Asami's. Twice at this branch and once in Stellenbosch. The sushi rice was tasteless and bitter. You could also see and taste that nothing on the belt was fresh. Asami's will never see me...again.More

Visited for lunch. Small but good menu items available. Apart from Chinese also has a selection of Thai meals and of course its long conveyor belt of sushi. Watched as a number of diners returned again a Nd again to sushi belt. Must have been...good as some tables had in excess of 12 containers stacked. Explained to server that we would be sharing a few dishes and were advised Portions were quite large. Despite saying we were sharing dishes I was amazed to have the food delivered on 2 plates and had to ask for plates so we could dish up the meal between us. These arrived but no spoons to dish up with. Manager arrived to see how we were enjoying meal and when I started to explain that it would be better to serve the food in bowls so we could help ourselves he disappeared and sent over a spoon with a server. Nobody seemed interested in listening. Food was very tasty. The portion of veg fried rice was large and 4 could share it. It was very different to what we have had overseas and was quite mushy. I would really prefer to have the food served in bowls so one can buy various items for the table and then share them than have 1 largelate placed in front of me.More

Good sushi restaurant for a quick bite at the mall. The conveyor belt is constantly restocked. Well priced.

When we arrived for dinner, many of the dishes on the belt looked like they’d been standing all day. This was clearly evident in the dry-texture and lack of flavour in many of the dishes we took from the belt. The chicken spring rolls that...we ordered from the kitchen came out hot, but contained pieces of raw, undercooked chicken. We sent it back to the kitchen and lost our appetite after that. The waiter didn’t apologise, nor could he provide a reason for the raw chicken. He simply said that he would “talk to the chef”. The service at the restaurant wasn’t bad, but needless to say, a restaurant that is willing to serve raw chicken, and risk the health of their guests, shouldn’t receive any stars at all. It is safe to say that we won’t be returning. There are many other good sushi places in the vicinity.More

We visited this restaurant now on three occasions. Service is terrible so their supply of on tap and bottled beer. At the time they were running Camelthorn Helles. First visit no stock! Second time first round was perfect. Second round we were served a sour...beer, which apparently was of the wrong tap?Asian stir fries pretty bad quality. The sushi sort of acceptable. Today Camelthorn IPA no stock. Their house craft beer in bottle no stock. Just not good enough.More

I love sushi and had my standards set high for Asamis. But it pleased me above and beyond. It is a bit on the expensive side (as most fish restaurants are) but it is well worth it. The mocktails my friends and I ordered were...divine and I can't wait to go again!More

This is seriously one of the wortst immetations & sushi restaurant I have ever visited. On arrival the the sushi-belt area was stacked with dirty plates. The sushi belt has a variety of lemons, grape and o some lost sushi. A very weak and pathetic...service food and seriously lack of quality. Seriously a major dissapoitnment and waste of money.More

forget it if you expect good food - be prepared to eat 80% of your fill in rice, 5% in wasabi & 15% with salmon ~ no tuna, no prawn & no service..
