Asia Garden Chinese and Japanese Restaurant has been serving the Jackson, TN area for many years. One of their specialties is sushi. In recent years, the crave for sushi has E X P L O D E D. I took a behind-the-scenes trip to get some really cool information on how Asia Garden does sushi!
They offer a variety of rolls that offer all kinds of flavors, ingredients, shapes, sizes and prices! There’s literally something for everyone! Some categories you’re going to see when you look at the menu will be HOUSE, MAKI, HAND ROLL and BOX SUSHIS.
An overview of those categories:
House: These rolls are native to West TN. Usually these rolls are larger and appear more elaborate.
Maki: This group of rolls can typically be found wherever you order sushi. They contain a few basic ingredients that still pack a flavorful punch.
Hand Rolls: These are a F U N alternative to your typical order. Shaped like a cone, the seaweed wrap contains loads of protein and lots of flavor!
Box: This looks like..you guessed it..a box! These are formed in a bamboo box and cut into rectangular pieces. These are LARGE and so filling without any seaweed!
TOP 3: Their most popular rolls by demand are the Mexico, Chef and House Roll. A cool fact: These 3 contain pretty much identical ingredients just in a different order or style! If you like one, you’ll probably like the others.
I was able to try 3 unique sushi options, and even watch the making of box sushi from start to finish!
The first roll I tried was the Shrimp Tempura Hand Roll (Cooked). This roll is a seaweed “cone” filled with shrimp tempura, snow crab mix, avocado and cucumber with eel sauce! No worries…eel sauce is just a sweet brown sauce! This roll was fun to eat! You can pick the whole thing up at once and dig in!
Next was an off-the-menu roll called Sendai. This roll is H U G E just like its ingredients list! It has: crawfish mix, shrimp tempura, Cajun tuna, salmon and crab stick, hot oil, chili oil, green onion, fish eggs, soy sauce, nanami (a Japanese spice) and house sauce. Not only is its appearance shocking, but it’s flavor packs a punch also! This rolls has a sweet, slow heat! If you like spice, this will be a mild-medium heat, but if you’re sensitive to spice, I don’t think you should necessarily run from this one!
Finally, I tried the Rainbow Box Sushi. This roll was beautiful and contained a rainbow of fish: tuna, salmon and super white tuna with fish eggs and avocado. This was made in a bamboo box in layers! It has no seaweed which makes it a great option for someone who is new to sushi! Plus it’s very filling!
I got to get a firsthand look at what it takes to make a box sushi! Alfredo, their head sushi chef of 19 years, took me step-by-step through the process.
They use Saran Wrap to cover the box which makes for a smooth transition out of the bamboo box mold onto your plate! It also helps hold it all together in the cutting process! In addition to the plastic wrap, a super sharp knife is essential for getting the cuts on the fresh fish and the finished product!
Beautiful layers of fish and avocado cover the box sushi.
The “brick” of sushi is removed from the box and is absolutely stunning. Then, sliced and garnished with bright red fish eggs and served.
These videos show Alfredo at work pressing and removing the Rainbow Box Sushi from the bamboo box and cutting it into perfect slices.

My mother was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when she was 68 years old 2 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help her. The medical team did even less. Her decline was rapid and devastating. Her arms weakened first, then her hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Dr AREBANMHEN Herbal formula and his successful ALS TREATMENT, we contacted him. and ordered his ALS Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed her Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, she is able to walk and eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., she is pretty active now and her attitude is extremely positive.i joyfully recommend you to Dr AREBANMHEN because health is wealth this is a very bad experience with those living with ALS please do not hesitate to contact him:firstname.lastname@example.org or call/whatsapp him via +2349069556104 Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/drarebanmhenherbalhome/ YouTube Channel: https://youtube.com/channel/UC6j_u9YEONqNizLCZxvmUnw

I came here because the only other Japanese place near me is Miso in Paris and I absolutely love it so wanted to try another Japanese place in case anything happened to miso. I order sushi, clear soup, and shrimp soba there. I ordered the same here and it was completely different but I’m not blaming them. It just wasn’t to my expectations of Miso 😅 the sweet tea was great!
For example 1) Soba at miso is a little thicker and wider noodle and the veggies are put on the side and the shrimp are shrimp shaped. The noodles are also a bit sweeter. The soba here is thin and they mix the veggies in. The shrimp is also long? It was okay but just not for me.
2) the sushi Was wider and shorter than at miso and was cold although it was cooked. I should’ve looked at the pictures of the sushi beforehand. It would have probably been better warm.
3) I liked the clear soup here. It has chicken broth instead of beef. It also has noodles, chives, and seaweed while miso is beef broth, chives, and mushroom.
Also, my husband’s meal came 15-20 minutes after mine. He ordered the 4 seasons.
My husband and I ate there for Valentine’s. We had the New Orleans sushi and the Fuji sushi. Also egg rolls. It was all delicious. The presentation was beautiful as always. We enjoyed it. The waitress was very nice, too.
We ordered takeout, crab rangoon, chicken lo mein, and pork lo mein with fried rice and everything was delicious. The lo meins were hot, the rice wasn't but no complaint because we weren't going to eat it until later anyway. I highly recommend this place for take out and hope they will reopen again soon for dine-in.
My son and I love Asia Garden and his birthday was today. I asked what kind of cake he wanted. He said a ‘sushi cake’. I called and made one of the oddest requests they have probably ever had yet they surpassed my expectations. It was ready in less than an hour and the amount of food we got for the price was excellent. . He was so amazed at his ‘sushi cake’. It was absolutely amazing. Thank you Asia Garden for making his birthday extra special.
I love Asia Garden!! My mom and I went this evening for her Birthday. We usually order the same thing, but today we both tried something different. I tried the Mongolian Pork and she tried the Shrimp with sizzling rice. I didn't like mine and she didn't like hers. The server felt really bad, but it wasn't his fault. The food looked great and the presentation was great as well. We both tried something different and didn't care for it. I will continue to order carry out, delivery and dine in, because it's the best. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Asia Garden is my favorite restaurant. I've been eating there since moving to Jackson in 1990, and I'm never disappointed. The food and staff are always exceptional, and there is such a wide variety of menu items, I don't have to get bored by the "same ol' thing".
We got a delivery today from here. I ordered the Bahama roll low carb and it was amazing!! I cannot believe I can still have my fave restaurant and fave food while eating low carb! Y’all are the best!!
Love Asia Garden. Every time I go I get a new roll and every time I am NOT LET DOWN! Their eel sauce is the best I’ve ever had. May sound small, but it’s the little things that make their dishes extraordinary. My go to for SUSHI! Always fresh and always delectable!
Their food is so fresh and comes out steaming hot and delicious! My mom got the Peking Beef combo and her Beef was so juicy and tender, it just melted right in your mouth. I had the Honey Chicken, same thing the breading was so soft with a bit of crunch (just how I like it!) the chicken was tender and delicious the honey sauce was AMAZING. Everything was wonderful, down to the Crab Rangoons and wonton soups. My mother and I are from out of town, the hotel we were staying in, had recommended this place and I am SO glad they did!!!
I love Asia Garden Restaurant! It's my very favorite place to eat sushi!!! Their Chinese dishes are delicious as well. I have always had a great experience with my food and the service!!! If you haven't tried this place you don't know what you have been missing!!!
Best Chinese/Japanese restaurant in Jackson. We have been going here for almost 13 years since we were in college. Now, I love going on dates with hubby and sharing sushi and their special fried rice (add the spicy chili oil to the rice. It’s delicious!).
We had never eaten sushi in Jackson before so I asked what was a good sushi place. Several of my friends said Asia Garden so we tried it. It was ahhhmzing! We will definitely be coming back! Y’all did not disappoint.
My husband and I came for a visit today. I had the mermaid salad no siracha and he had the combination rice. We shared the Naruto Roll. All of it was very good! He loved the creamy sauce that came with the rice. Great for me that is doing Keto and for him that is not. He enjoyed my choices too.
