Sushi in Asheville

Where can i find good sushi in Asheville, NC? We just moved to the area and haven't ventured out to find it (nothing worse than dissapointing sushi!). Thanks for any recommendations!

  1. Wasabi is very good. I also like Heiwa Shokudo but it is a very different vibe - try em both!

      1. re: bethd127

        My favorite these days is Green Tea - not downtown - but Wasabi is reliable....

      2. Wasabi is OK. But we prefer Zen Sushi. It's about two miles north of downtown on Merrimon Avenue (US Rte 25). It'll be on the left as you go north and it's in a strip mall, but don't let the location put you off. They have excellent lunchtime sushi specials...

          I agree with Mardy. Zen Sushi is my favorite sushi bar in Asheville. Splurge and spring for some of the special rolls - you won't be disappointed.

        2. I like Ichiban as well, they always have interesting specials.

          1. Wasabi is good, as is Zen Sushi, I've heard good things about Green Tea but not been there...There are two new places opening up on Biltmore Ave, one is by the same family who has Wasabi, Ichiban and CF Chans and the other is a stand alone, should be interesting :)
