Loved this place!!

We stopped in for lunch, and were very pleasently surprised! The food is AWESOME service is quick and friendly. I had the Beef Lo Mein - and it tasted so very fresh, and the vegetables in it were crisp and delicious! The restaurant looks so unassuming, but definitely worth a visit!

Everything is made fresh to order, so you can amend the dishes to your liking. The sauces are not heavy and the vegetables are cooked perfectly. I even requested steamed tofu instead of fried, and they accommodated my request with ease. The ramen tasted just like it does in Japan. Affordable, great customer service, and very clean. Bonus - great... More

I frequent this place because of its free delivery and sushi selection. Thai food and sushi are both above average. Neither are the best in Old Town but they are moving up. It is my go to sushi delivery place when I feel like a bigger meal or using a credit card. Just make sure you have the most recent... More

Out of several Thai/Asian restaurants in town, this one is excellent! The food is high quality and the service aims to please! Reasonable prices, too.

Seldom does a restaurant merit a double thumbs up, but the Asian Bistro succeeds in achieving that! The Korean dishes we ordered were outstanding, with beautiful flavors. The service was prompt and friendly. If we had more time in Alexandria, we would have returned on the second night!

It was great to find a place not pack for a late lunch and what we thought would be a quick lunch. We were sitter right away and the place was clean and very well attended. We placed out order and first dishes came out quick. Our second order did take longer than we expected so we asked and quickly... More

Started with a spicy tuna roll which was below average; there were several layers of rice and barely any tuna in the roll which was a huge disappointment considering that the tuna situated at the sushi bar looked amazing... Had Chicken Penang and Pad Thai for the main course; the chicken Penang was excellent; the pad Thai wasn't all that... More

Our unexpected lunch destination, such a pleasant surprise. We loved the authentic surroundings and general cleanliness. Service is just as pleasant. The FOOD...so delicious. We had several apps and mains to get a feel for their food overall. Everything we had was prepared fresh with enhancing nuances that made it even better. We got there just before the lunch rush,...

This little restaurant is very cozy and the food is very good. You cannot go wrong with Panang curry or the basil salmon. Sushi is also good, fresh tasting fish. Very reasonable price.

We enjoyed our visit to the Asian Bistro. The food was good but not great - portions were fair. We ordered a couple of special cocktails - and one was excellent and other very short of size and alcohol. We told the server and explained we were pleased with everything else but could we try the 10 dollar drink again?... More
