Best sushi in Las Cruces hands down. Only place in las cruces to serve dim sum. Recommend the tower sampler. Bento boxes & hot plates also available. Good variety of common Asian dishes. New location is somewhat hidden, tucked away in a shopping center but once inside it is beautifully decorated.

Smerging of fusion styles. Sweet sticky entrees and the sushi is not made by a sushi chef. Lacks authenticity. Reminds me of PF Chang, which I do not like either because its food is sweet, sticky, not crisp and clean.

Every time I come here I always leave full and satisfied. They do not mind small alterations to anything they make, and are always in a great mood. The chef will happily talk to you about anything you like while they prepare your meal in front of your eyes. My only complaint is that I wish they would actually have... More

Upon walking into the restaurant was a very strong fishy smell. The restaurant seemed to only have one waiter and he was extremely busy. I wanted some salt and more dressing for my salad but didn't get it until I was almost finished. I had the Pecan Crusted Chicken salad and another person at our table had the Pecan Crusted... More

I'd like to be generous in my review, but we had several issues when we visited Aqua Reef for lunch today. The main problem was two items we ordered, and looked forward to, were delayed with no explanation, and probably wouldn't have been brought to us at all had we not asked about them. We ordered a sushi roll as... More

Glad we arrived early for lunch, as this place gets slammed during peak hours. Warm, elegant ambiance with seating at the sushi bar or tables. For us, the flatscreen over the sushi bar was a major minus in this lovely atmosphere, tho at least we could get away from it. The CA roll appetizer was about standard, but my husband's... More

The food is amazing! The taste of these dishes are delicious. The sushi is the best in town! The way the chefs combine the different food and spices are a culinary delight!

If you want excellent Asian food and service at a very reasonable price this is the restaurant to experience in Las Cruces. My wife and I try to go there at least once per month. Our last visit was on her birthday, and Aqua Reef was her first and only choice. She was treated very special. And do not be... More
