The standout for me was the steak cooked with mushroom medley and a butter cognac (or some other type of alcohol) sauce. The yellowtail nigiri and all the sashimi were superb. I wouldn't say that everything was so unique that I couldn't have made some of them at home, but I did enjoy most of the courses. However, number 5 and 9 were alot weaker compare to the other courses. The soba was bland.

Aso is just the best! I've been everwhere and if you just want good sushi and could care less abut the "scene" this is the place. This is the jewel of philadelphia offering a good selection and wonderfully fresh sushi at an awesome price. I would have to say this is a restaurant for sushi lovers not for people who go to places for the trendy atmosphere.

What self-respecting sashimi/sushi lover has not been to Morimoto and Pod in hopes of finding good sushi? And even Fuji, Ajia, etc.? And let's face it - who has been satisfied? Not me. Nigiri/Sushi at Morimoto and Pod have been some of the biggest of disappointments. Pod sushi's pretty, I'll give you that - but fresh? No.

Within the realm of my experience, Aso has the most fresh and the best tasting sushi-grade fish in Philadelphia. Their sashimi salad, though a little heavy on the sauce (tell them to tone it down to taste the fish), has so much fish in there, it's awesome. Their nigiri and sushi are hands down the best in town. And for those that wimp out on the price of o-toro (fatty white tuna).. just try one. Ah. Melts-in-your-mouth good.

Pros: Sashimi, Nigiri, Sushi, homemade green tea, black sesame ice cream

Cons: none! decor not as extravagant, but you go here for the food

My boyfriend and I are huge sushi fans. Since we moved to Philly a few months ago, we have tried several sushi restaurants (Pod, Swanky Bubbles, Genji, etc). A few weeks ago, we happened to walk by Aso and decided to stop in for a quick bite. We loved it!!! We order sushi almost Friday night, and this restaurant has become our favorite - the fish is very fresh and the rolls are very unique. Try the nigri sushi, the Aso Roll, the Shrimp tempura roll. Fantastic!

This place is a diamond in the rough. I love this place and your will too! It is quiet and a very fun place to take your friends or significant other when you want some really tastey sushi. The sushi chef is extremely nice and the waitstaff has never been the least bit rude. I eat here twice a month and order take out when ever I crave some sushi. Prices are reasonable. The negative review of this place revieved is unbelievably incorrect! Try it at least once.
