This is NOT an Asian restaurant. The food was fantastic in presentation and extremely flavorful, the service was even better and the ambiance was great. I was totally surprised by the menu variation. Sushi appetizer was absolutely wonderful. I will be back maqny times now that we have found this jewel in wonderful Athens.

I have been to the Purple Chopstix many times. My husband and I love to go there and we take visitors there, too. Why do we like it? Well, first, it is so unusual; the decor is sort of early attic with artwork from PassionWorks creating an almost fantasy-like atmosphere. The food is really good and there are a number... More

Don't be confused by the name, this place is not Asian. Their menu is eclectic and the dishes are real globe-trotters (red curry with rice & beans and pita bread -- huh?), but everything comes together and the food is delicious. The service, however is SLOW, so be warned.

I came down for the weekend to visit my daughter at Ohio University and I wanted to take her out for dinner. I found this restaurant on the Internet. What a great find. We had an outstanding dinner. Some of the best food I have ever had. (We have nice restaurants in Cleveland but nothing like this!). The atmosphere is... More

Curries and seafood crepes are family favorites. Eating surrounded by Passion Works art just makes it all the more delightful.

Without a doubt one of the best if not the best place to eat in Athens, Ohio. Purple Chopstix is not your typical cookie cutter restaurant. It is small and intimate with several rooms to eat in or dine outside (weather permitting). It is originally and colorfully decorated with artwork form Passion Works Art Studio, and an eclectic collection of... More
