An upscale sushi restaurant without the exorbitant upscale sushi restaurant prices. Asian Star lived up to the hype and delivered gracious hosts, a minimalist but contemporary atmosphere and filling portions.
The blend of colors matched the flavors and exceeded expectations.
Sitting down at the restaurant, you first notice the origami-like napkin folds that one normally only see in places requiring a reservation or suit-and-tie. To which, of course, this Marine quickly tried on as a hat. The staff dug it. They were attentive, good natured and respectful. The facility was clean and the employees accommodating.
Their California Roll was up to par. Not the best, but far from the worst. Considering the expectations of your basic California Roll, Asian Star delivered an appeasing piece that went down easy. The same can be said about their orange chicken. The portion was big enough to have some put in a box and be brought home for some after-party leftovers.
But their crème de la crème came from the sushi section: the Last Vegas Roll. It looked eclectic, smelled appetizing, and tasted delicious. It’s a spot-on, ever satisfying piece of Asian cuisine that will appease any receptive taste buds. A culinary masterpiece.
Not going into Asian Star expecting anything new, it was a pleasant surprise to bump into this Yuma locale. Do yourself a favor and head on over to 276 West 32nd Street #1 or call: (928) 317-9888. Their website says they have take out.
