  • I can't believe some of the negative reviews. I am from out of town but when ever I am here I make sure this place is one of my stops.

    Food is always great. Service if you take your time to talk with them is fantastic. I have Never had a bad experience at this place.....if you do, talk to Danny he will look after you.

    Last trip in late May I ordered my regular Sashimi. Picture has been uploaded. New Chef and he blew me away with the presentation, food as always fresh and tasty......

    Can't say enough

    Cheers

  • Order: Sashimi, Teriyaki, Tempura

  • My wife and I went for New Years Eve to kick off the night. What a mistake that was...The service was slow and not professional, the food was sub par - we were served broken rolls and some orders never even came. I had an allergy to wheat etc and after discussing this with our waiter the majority of our orders came with items I couldn't eat. They even told us some items that they gave us were safe to eat but actually had wheat in them (thanks guys!). We had to send back the majority of our orders cause they messed it up and had to wait even longer for them to correct it.

    My overall impression was that the wait staff didn't take the time to care/understand my allergy, the food that came out was thrown together without effort and it took very long to actually get our food. Not worth the price, wouldn't go back and definitely wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

  • This is my first time to Asano Resturant in Burlington, amazing and tasty sushi, good atmosphere, reasonable prices, and great service. We can't find a decent sushi place in Milton so we had to drive to Burlington. Would definitely come back again. A+++

  • Order: Red dragon, black dragon, tempura roll, spicy salmon, and green dragon

  • I'm not one to write reviews, but the experience was so bad that I felt compelled to write this review. First order got mixed up a couple of times and then the second order never came. Worst part was we were left waiting and waiting and then the waitress came and asked if we would like anything else. We explained that we never got our second order and she said we could order again. Didn't feel like waiting any longer. Is this some kind of all-you-can-eat scam, wait them out in between orders so they get fed up and leave? It should be noted that anytime a Reasturant has all-you-can-eat the quality is going to suffer.

    Aside from the sub par maki rolls the food was not delicious.

    I'm not trying to be a sushi snob, but I can't believe some people think this is decent Japanese food. You can tell this place is not Japanese managed. It is cheap, rushed, zero quality and bland; exactly the opposite of how the Japanese do things.

    If you want authentic Japanese food try Mye Japanese restaurant in Downtown Oakville. A lot more expensive but well worth it.

  • I visited a few times recently, despite the negative reviews about service. I was pleasantly surprised by how attentive the staff are. I would venture to guess that they have responded to the service complaints. Having said that, some of the staff don't speak English so that can be a challenge. However, the food is very good. Their rolls are nicely done, and so is the dim sum stuff. I like this place a lot.

  • Order: Sushi and Dim Sum

  • Worst sushi ever...ordered take out...came delivered WARM!? There was goey mayonaise sauce over everything...rolls falling apart because of the warm rice - everything was just mushed all together...nothing seemed fresh. One friend ordered noodles dish- no flavour at all- so bland. We ended up tossing everything after a few bites and ordered pizza

  • Order: rolls and noodles

  • I love this place. When my kids get to pick where to go...this is the place they pick. Food is great and service is great. My only con would be that I always leave too full.

  • Order: sushi, shrimp, sliced beef, a bit of everything

  • Hi Asano Owner, let me give you an advice: you need to start thinking to get the right staff and train them having a good manager.
    Sushi is not bad, lot of "imitation crab meat" and tiny sashimi pieces.
    At the end of the day (or the meal) it is a very expensive place since for 7 we paid almost 200 dollars and we didn't eat too much due the order was missed 3 times.
    I don't recommend this place at all.
    I hope you will be able to improve the service soon.

  • Order: all you can eat sushi

  • Overall the service kills the experience. It was slow, we received someone else's order, missed half of our order, and never got additional drink orders.
    The sushi was edible but really sub-par. The sashimi pieces were very small, the tappanyaki| tasted like it was pre-prepared, frozen and re-heated, the crab was actually strips of pollock straight out of the vacuum packed plastic it came in, and the sushi pizza was completely covered in mayonnaise.
    In the end given they forgot about us and our food order we left before desert. I would never go back and never recommend it to anyone.

  • Order: sashimi, sushi pizza, beef tappanyaki|, dragon roll

  • Sushi Asano is our go-to for take-out sushi. We do not go to sit-down so I can not comment on dine-in service, but take out is excellent. Quality of food, and service is always good. My husband calls ahead on the way home from work, and then just swings in to pick up on the way home. We are always really happy with our sushi and the take-out experience.

  • Order: Assortment of Sushi from take-out menu.
