On arrival we asked about the Chicken meal special (order 2 chicken meals for R99) that was advertised on their Facebook page and the waitress told us it was not valid in Knysna, although it was the Knysna Facebook page. She came back and informed...us that we can choose between the sweet and sour chicken and the chicken chow mein, which we did. We also ordered salmon roses, which was very disappointing, it look like someone just slapped it together. Our soya sauce never came and we had to ask for it. Now I understand why the sushi is cheaper there than at other places. Throughout our lunch the waitress did not once come to us to make sure we are fine. The service was not great at all. The only saving grace was that the chicken dishes were good. Will I return? No?More

Location is great, on the first floor overlooking the bay and other shops, right at the end of the single storey shopping mall. Popped in late on a Monday evening for a takeaway. Large restaurant, empty bar one customer. He was tucking into some lovely...looking sushi. We ordered and relaxed with a drink. The dishes all come with rice or noodles. We ordered several, duck, chicken, beef, pork, ribs, crackers, veg rolls. All tasty but could have had far more spice/chilli. Sorry, I like it hot and the dishes I chose should have hurt a bit! Still, tasty and enough.More

We were concerned when we arrived at the Waterfront for the first time in 2 years as Wu's had gone. But we thought we would try Asami's and we ate here a few times over past weeks and never had a bad chinese meal. We...never tried the Sushi. Service good too, the waiter recognised us each time and welcomed us with a smile. Good food and value, plus good size glass of wine!More

We had the Tuesday sushi special last night and loved it! Great sushi, friendly service and stunning harbour views!

We found this restaurant just walking around wondering what to eat. So glad we did. As well as an extensive menu they do a 2-course and 3-course special that includes a glass of wine. We both had the Thai green curry and desert. It was...so good we went back the next night. My husband had the Thai curry again and I had the sweet & sour which again was really good. We ended up going back a third night and both had the chicken noodles. The food was freshly made, hot, plentiful and delicious. They do takeaway as well which seemed to be popular. We can highly recommend.More

We had a very good Thai soup to start with followed with a green curry, served in generous portions. The seafood was fresh and very tasty an lived up to our expectations. Although the location is very good with lovely views, the place somewhat lacked...some atmosphere if that is important to you. However, If we feel like having some Asian seafood we would go back there without hesitation.More

The food was absolutely delicious. Visited this little Asian restaurant 3 times in a space of two days. The steward made sure we were attended to and reminded us of the amazing specials. A definite must.

We visited here for a quick lunch. Service was initially not very attentive even though we were the only table. Our waiter then came and was very helpful and very polite. We ordered sushi so cannot comment on the other food on offer. My son...wanted a spur burger and they allowed him to eat it (maybe because we were the only table). Prices were very reasonable and service very prompt. Sushi was ok but not great (rice not cooked properly) but I guess good compared with price paid.More

Nearly didn't go due to poor reviews on here but glad we did. Food was above average and service was reasonably attentive. Portions were very generous and the 8 for 4 special on the salmon roses (shushi) was excellent. Very light and so fresh. Prices...can't be beaten for the waterfront area. We will be returning soon.More

My Chinese friend was desperate for Chinese food so I took her to Asami’s. The only dish she liked was the soup. The noodles were terrible and we left most uneaten. I liked the Tempura prawns but that’s Japanese, not Chinese. The view at night...was nice and we sat outside.More
