Baltimore Price-Quality Frontier: Inside It

Asahi is a small, unassuming sushi joint in the heart of Fell's Point. The decor is extremely low-key; for example, they have a stack of books for patrons to read while they eat. I found all this pleasant but be warned that the vibe is neither romantic nor hip.

Service was good. We ordered a sushi combination and they were willing to make substitutions (who wants shrimp when you can get raw fish?). Sushi was plentiful and displayed nicely. Tasty and fairly fresh, it didn't blow my mind. However, the price point is very appealing (quality sushi entrees <$20). While I'd be willing to pay a bit more for higher quality fish, Asahi is a good value given the price and quality. To my mind, this makes Kawasaki (which is down the street) a better bet for Fell's Point sushi. Kawasaki has better decor/view, substantially fresher sushi, and is only marginally more expensive.

I've just found your blog, so am reading some of these older posts. This review makes me wonder about doing some sort of economic analysis of BYOB places. When we choose a sushi place in Fells, we usually choose Asahi because we can go right across the street to Fells Point Liquors and pick up what we want to drink. They also have no corkage charge, as far as we can figure...making Asahi even more of a deal, if one is going to be drinking alcohol.
