There's no crazy rolls on the menu. Just primo grade fresh sushi. Omakase at the sushi bar is the most amazing experience. The king salmon melted in my mouth. The herring roe exploded with flavor. Simply amazing. Just go try it for

Never a disappointment. The Gold-Standard for authentic sushi in Westchester for over 20 years. Old-fashioned Japanese sushi in its purest form. Our family travels from CT for the authentic taste of Azuma. Why? Because we know we won't be let down.

Yes, this is one of the more expensive sushi restaurants in Westchester, but it's also one of the best if not the best. It's simple and very traditional. There's none of that new-fusion stuff. But, if you prefer authentic sushi you would

i have been going back to azuma for years even after i moved into the city. the sushi is just as fresh as hatsuhana without the manhattan traffic.

azuma's uni is wonderful. the taste is clean as it gets outside of eating it straight out

whoever those last two people are that commented on Azuma are so fazed by the americanized- spicy tuna roll w/ avocado on top looking like caterpilars that they should just stay and eat at Planet Sushi in the city. If you are a true sushi lover and stay away from california rolls and spicy tuna rolls, and appreciate the true taste of sushi and delicate flavors you will understand and enjoy Azuma. It is known that Azuma doesnt carter to children, they have no fake japanese food such as Chicken terriaki, that is why they dont accept children as much because there is no food for them to eat there, unless u have ever seen a 3 yr old eat raw fish and acctually enjoy it... Hope whoever reads this is not influenced by those last two comments, I have been going to Azuma for over ten yrs, and well NEVER step foot into another sushi place. Please if you are considering atlesst try it for yourself and make your own opinion. AZUMA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!

I had heard that this place was well-known and since recently they reduced their prices slightly due to the economy, I thought we would give them a try. It turns out that the reduction in price has resulted in a more than commensurate reduction in the size of the sushi. i have never seen sushi so small, both in length and thickness. The chef must have a really sharp knife to cut fish this thin. I could barely taste the sushi before it dissolved in my mouth. So I really can't say whether it was good or bad because there wasnt enough of it to even taste it! Maybe I should have bunched a few together all at once. Other aspects of the establishment also left me dissappointed. For instance, they have a cheap radio on a little roof above the sushi bar playing music from a local radio station, commericials included. Couldn't they spring for a piped-in music channel that didnt blare commericials? And the sole waitress! Wow, what a charmless specimen. I think your average prison guard exudes more personal warmth.

Azuma is located right next to the Hartsdale train station and the place is somewhat nondescript. There are shades in the windows which makes obscures and hides the insides of the restaurant. It can either be mysterious or uninviting.

The food is mostly sushi or sashimi, with some other items like tempura, but the restaurant's focus is sushi. The prices range from $2.50/piece for salmon to $5/piece for fatty tuna (Chutoro, or Ohtoro). Overall the quality of the sushi is good, but not great. For example, the salmon used was not the fatty part of the salmon, which many other restuarants favor. And unfortunately, not very flavorful - even the Spanish mackerel, was a bit lacking in flavor. Salmon skit hand roll could have used a bit more of the salmon on the skin to give it more flavor and texture. I think my 12 year old daughter, said it best when she said everything is... ordinary. There was nothing special about the food.

The fish was also cut a bit thin (I thought), and small. Their miso soup was also good, but nothing extraordinary. I like the fact that it was not overly salty. Their decor could use an upgrade. Something simple like replacing the seat of the worn toilet seat would do a lot to improve overall feeling that the restaurant is a bit dated.

The service was good and pleasant, but once again, not polished. I asked if I can get the sushi half of them without wasabi (for my daughter), and the waitress told me it would be easier for me to order all the sushi without wasabi. There were 4 people in the restaurant at the time, and there were 3 sushi chefs standing around. I think they could have handled it. As I said, pleasant, but not great service.

I knew that it was not going to be Hatsuhana, Kurumazushi - level of place, but I was disappointed to spend $120 - $130 for me and my daughter, and walk away from the restaurant wondering which sushi restaurant we should try next to satisfy our unfulfilled desire for great sushi.
