There are finer sushi bars than Asuka but none I know where you can have a really fun Friday night - nice room, sitting at the sushi bar with Ken and his coterie - he is humorous without being intrusive and has magic timing for the next round. Pleasant background music, a large crowd - big mix of people all having a good time. Excellent service, welcoming hosts and Ken of course, just the best. We were sitting next to a well known disk jockey who was eating solo - he comes, he says, for the same reason we do - its such a nice watering hole without attitude - the folks just want people to be well fed and have a good evening. Three people eating lots of sushi and three doses of sake, $85 plus tip.
