On recent trip to South Africa my bestie and I really wanted tasty food with parking. We found this place by accident. Great food with fabulous staff. Thank You. So much food took most home.

We arrived early afternoon/evening so really no excuse for very slow service, but then loadshedding happened. Our sushi took over an hour to get to our table. But having said that the sushi was excellent as ever and made up for the long wait. Benson...was friendly and efficient.More

Not a huge sushi fan, so that should probably be taken into account, but every now and then I do enjoy having some. Service was good, Sushi was on par with most restaurants I've been to. Their specials are quite good, so if you're on...a tight budget this might be the place to look out for.More

We have been going to Asami's Somerset West since they opened. Absolutely love the place, friendly staff and amazing fresh food. Try and go at least once a month. Keep it up. Thank you

Phoned in to order platters. The guy on the phone said they would be ready in 30mins, however once we had arrived at Asami's the platter was not ready (30 mins later). We then waited a further 40mins at Asami's for the order, which we...finally received. I asked two different waiters to speak to the manager, yet the manager never came to the table where we were seated. (A dirty table at that). Would not recommend this place.More

Absolutely horrible!!!! Asami's is one of my favourite restaurants, but this one in Somerset West gives them a bad name the worst meal by far. They had no rice and their steamed prawn dumplings were raw and the pork dumpling smelled rotten we did not...even finish our meal just paid and left the poor waitress did apologise, but it is hardly her, fault poor girl!!!!More

We went to this place twice. The first time service was poor and the noodles that we had were okay but very average. Not recommended. We went a second time for sushi as there were Asian chefs behind the sushi counter and it seemed very...popular. The sushi is good and they have 2 for the price of 1 on Mondays and Wednesdays which is very good value. They have too many dishes on the menu in my opinion so I think they only really excel in sushi.More
