Dim sum and sushi under the same roof? It's like a dream come true. The beautiful interior of the antique filling station just east of the federal courthouse is a marked change from the cozy home interior of where AmerAsia used to reside near the University. Hyangami Yi's food is just as good as ever. Expect her familiar dim sum plates and buns, and feel free to order sushi like you've never had in this town from her brother Woo Youn. He's got all the usual sashimi and nigiri in his adjoining restaurant, but it's the original, creative rolls that really set Sumo apart—that, and the adorable little train that ferries your pickled ginger around the sushi bar.

Downtown’s circle of Asian restaurants widens with Sushi Hana, a straight-shooting sushi joint with some Korean influences (it’s from the former owner of Yen Ching). Small and boldly decked in red and black, you’ll find affordable, familiar rolls in a contemporary atmosphere. Great for a quick lunch or a half-price sushi happy-hour trip (served from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. weekdays). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sushi King is a small, hip, casual spot located a few doors up from the Century 14 Downtown movie theater. They serve fresh nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls, plus an interesting assortment of seafood salads and noodle dishes. We love the variety and convenience this place offers when you’ve got a case of the Downtown ho-hums. They’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef.

Mom runs the cash register and Pop hustles in the kitchen, making this place seem friendlier and more authentic than its competitor, Teriyaki Chicken Bowl. They also offer brown rice and let you pay a little more for extra broccoli instead of forcing you to give up your rice. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You may remember Bangkok Asian Fusion, which used to occupy this place. Now there’s a grand, shiny new sushi bar, with a huge fish tank behind it that lays out generous portions of great sushi. (Sadly, the tom yum ain’t what it used to be.) A plate of sashimi, densely and artfully arranged, turns the table into a school of piranhas. Each variety of fish is carefully garnished with complementary flavors, with the squid tossed in wasabi tobiko being particularly memorable. The sushi salad has so many chunks of raw fish among the greens that you can’t stick your chopsticks in without getting any. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

Mr. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant

11200 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi, Asian

4.25 rating (12 votes)
Since we’re long past the point when sushi was considered too exotic for New Mexico, it’s time to start paying attention to other fine Japanese favorites like tempura, hibachi-grilled meats and seafood, teriyaki without the La Choy, and the beauty of udon noodles. Mr. Tokyo is modestly sized, moderately priced, and an excellent place for a quick, relaxing lunch or a quiet dinner with friends and family. They have mostly repeat customers because they’re just so darn good, and the owner’s pint-sized daughter, Shyana, will even wipe off half your table for you (give her a break, she’s still a shortie).

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Sushi, Japanese, Thai, Asian

3.8 rating (20 votes)
Sakura Sushi serves fresh, generous sushi (duh), as well as dishes from Thailand and Laos out of a small strip mall on north Wyoming. But if you order one thing, make sure it’s the udon soup. One bowl is big enough for four people. Dip a spoon in and you’ll strike heaps of firm, dense noodles, caramelized meats and crisp-tender vegetables floating in a sweet-and-savory broth. The curries and “monkey ball” appetizers are among the menu’s other high notes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Even if you don’t get out much to the Southeast side of town (where the highest concentration of Asian restaurants are in Albuquerque), you can still get some of the best sushi around at Samurai Grill’s original location in the Northeast Heights. The sushi tastes almost impossibly fresh, and the chefs are pros at presentation. Make sure you try one of the delicious specialty rolls. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Chef Noi Zaintz, formerly of Bangkok Café, opened Jasmine Thai and Sushi House last June in The 25 Way shopping center. With brightly colored walls trimmed in gold and pools of low light, Jasmine has a sort of classed-up opium den feel. There are more than 60 items, plus sushi; the menu gives an equitable amount of attention to appetizers, soups, salads, entrées and an entire page of vegetarian dishes. The service is awesome, and so are the No. 18 (spicy beef yum nuah salad), the fresh spring rolls and the pad Thai. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Occupying the same space that Japengo once inhabited, True Sushi bears a strong resemblance to its predecessor. The art is the same, and the sushi chefs still watch sports, but this one is actually a branch on the Sushi King family tree. Much of the sushi is on the heavy side, like the “iron monkey roll”—a deep-fried spicy tuna roll topped with baked scallop, crawfish and fish eggs, underneath a mop of bonito shavings. It's tasty, and your date would probably be impressed by your menu prowess if you order one. (Alibi Staff, February 13, 2012)

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.3 rating (32 votes)
Kokoro Japanese Restaurant is teeny-tiny in size with a menu succinctly pared down to a handful of quality home-style Japanese dishes—noodle soup (udon or soba), curry, donburi bowls, bento and a small sushi menu. The place is vegetarian/vegan-friendly with dishes like “just curry” (white rice with curry sauce and Japanese pickles), a wakame bowl of seaweed and noodles, and potato croquettes (tempura potato balls). Kokoro even includes complimentary and unlimited green tea, coffee or water with meals. If it’s all about the little things, then Kokoro delivers in a big way. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The lunch menu at contemporary Crazy Fish is accessible and affordably priced, with selections like the teriyaki salmon lunch box ($6.95): salmon served with miso soup, rice, salad or stir-fried vegetables. Other options include calamari salad ($6.25) and a barbecued eel bowl ($7.25). At dinner, the menu is more exciting but not much more expensive. A starter of edamame will run you $3.50 and creamy Asian mushroom udon pasta is $10.50. There's also a full sushi bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sit out on the pretty patio, and your server will help you cook your dinner on the built-in grills. They’ll also show you how to wrap your spicy grilled meat or seafood in herb and lettuce leaves. For a full course of fine lunchtime cuisine, try the tofu kimchi appetizer, ginger tea and spicy chicken box plate. Nothing in Nob Hill goes down better. Go big on the appetizer list for the taste, but if you're cutting costs, the box plate menu offers more than enough chow for a starving midday appetite. And it's worth every penny. Also, Nob Hill’s newest sushi bar (behind Korean BBQ House) offers all-you-can-eat sushi for $18 at lunch and $23 at dinner. Ordering á la carte is always allowed, but if you’re going for the all-you-can-eat, you’ve got two pages full of options and an hour in which to explore them. Edamame, tempura, miso soup, rolls, hand rolls and a small selection of nigiri are all fair game.

The sushi chef at Loving Vegan rolls sushi expertly, and if you squint your eyes, the fake shrimp, scallops, salmon and squid look exactly like “normal” sushi. They’re also pretty delicious. Try the bento box with miso soup, small salads (cucumber-seaweed and green leaves in a gingery dressing) and pan-fried spinach gyoza. We recommend the grilled portobello bento with vegetables, accompanied with thin, tender-crisp asparagus and a fat ring of onion, on pleasantly glutinous, lightly seasoned brown rice.

Too much time studying can turn the sweetest soul into a big ’ol crab. But just so you remember that not all crabs are bad, take a lunch or dinner break at Shogun. There’s sushi, sashimi and nigiri, and the soft shell crab rolls are a treat worth mentioning a couple of times. The best part is watching your food get made right in front of you and then floated around the table on an armada of wooden boats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

On the streets of Asia, vendors often specialize in one dish handed down through generations, preparing quick meals for passersby like hot noodle bowls, exotic sandwiches and spicy skewered satays. It’s a hotbed of cultural diversity including Vietnamese pho, Korean noodles, Japanese udon, and Malay and Chinese stir-fry. StreetFood Asia's menu offers a dizzying array of sauces, toppings, garnishes, meats, seafood, and vegetables in dinner portions or small plates in the heart of Nob Hill. Exotic bar drinks and an long list of excellent sakes adds sparkle to your meal. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Sure, from the outside Azuma still looks like a Black-eyed Pea, but inside every trace of country kitsch has been erased and replaced by a serene Japanese theme. Half of Azuma is devoted to teppan tables where patrons can sit and watch as a cook prepares their dinners with a few flashy tricks. On the other side of the restaurant, booths are separated by pretty panes of frosted glass and a line of stools hug the sushi bar. In addition to sushi, Azuma's menu offers many cooked items including noodles and a variety of grilled meats and vegetables that will ensure the place's appeal to nearby families and folks who are new to Japanese food.
