“Great food, good service. Must try the Curry Egg Wrap rice with Chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Had dinner here after reading the reviews. Great service. If you have no reservation, need to arrive early before 6pm to get the seating. Miso soup great and fresh. Must try the Curry Egg Wrap rice with Chicken. The curry was so tasty and the egg just melted in your mouth. The pork rice don was also good. Prawn potato balls crispy and tasty. Parking just along the street.

“Fresh, friendly and fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I have been meaning to have a meal here for a long time and finally got there Friday night. I still can't get over how good it was! Worth a trip to Newcastle just to eat there. Very reasonably priced too

“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

My partner and I have eaten here a few times over the last couple of months. I have travelled to Japan a few times and I find the food at the restaurant to be quite authentic, generous and very affordable if not cheap. There is no EFTPOS system so you must remember cash, and BYO drinks as there is no alcohol available for purchase. The restaurant also closes early and making a reservation is an absolute must. Having said this, Asa-Don is one of my favourite restaurants in Newcastle.

“Nice Japanese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

First visit to Asa Don. Very impressed. Great tempura, the teriyaki chicken was beautiful and grest miso. One down side was that they don't take credit cards or eftpos - cash only, so you need to remember to take some. Atmosphere was uncharacteristically western but didn't divert the actual charm of this little quaint Japanese restaurant. Definitely worth a try.
