Although relatively new on the scene – having set up shop on Burwood Road in 2014 – Asahiya is firmly established as one of the most reliable Japanese eateries in Sydney’s inner west, popular for the fuss-free style and fantastic value attached to their wide array of delicious Japanese offerings. Situated in the heart of Burwood, Asahiya is sleek and stylish, but it lacks any whiff of pretentiousness. Meals are beautifully presented and generously sized, and the spread is staggering, from protein-filled plates of prime Wagyu beef enoki roll or crispy karaage to steamy bowls of richly flavoured ramen and udon noodle soups, with plenty of traditional sides and starters to help you along and an intriguing take on Japanese-style pasta. It’s popular by day and night, so if you want to line up a quick but satisfying lunch or a leisurely journey into Japanese cuisine we recommend booking a table ahead of time.
Good food. Restaurant was quite busy at lunch time. Teriyaki chicken was delicious. Sushi rolls were very fresh. Aged ashy tofu was also nice. Will be back
