This restaurant with a pan-Asian menu has very good food and a nice, cheap happy hour, but the service was often painfully slow, forcing us to seek the waiter's attention more than once to help move things along. If only the service could match the food. . . .

The food here was soooo tasty! We sat on the patio and enjoyed the fresh air while eating and it was perfect for us but it was very busy and there is lots of traffic on the street directly next to the patio. The food was very well done and served promptly. The appetizer servings were small so we were... More

Wide menu selection from all over Asia and reasonably good food but it's nothing special. It seems to me it has gone downhill in the past few years - new manager? - new owner? - something is different. It can be pricey depending on what you order. My biggest complaint on this past visit was the waitress who seemed to... More

After going here a number of years, I always go back to this place as a staple. Food is consistently good and has a wide variety. On this last visit, I ordered their suhi/sashimi during happy hour and then got the teriyaki chicken and Korean beef dish. Despite the size of this place and the fact that it always busy,... More

After discovering this we have maintained it as our fall-back restaurant in the Rosslyn area. The food has been consistently decent and the pan-asian theme means there is some variety of choice. I can't speak for the foods' being "authentic", and no, you probably won't have a culinary revelation. But it's been reliable and I value that a lot. I... More

Good service, nice fellows and ambiance, food was really good and tasty (specially the noodles!), the mix of chinesse, japanesse ad thai offer they have makes them a nice choice, the sushi was good enough, but culd be better

We stopped in after a long day in DC to grab some take out food to take back to the hotel. With all the reviews we were very hopeful to get a great meal. Not the case - we should have eaten the complimentary dinner offered at our hotel. The hostess/greeter was quite disdainful and not at all interested in... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat when in DC. The food is fresh and oh so good compared the the same food at home. The service is nice and cost is very reasonable with large portions. Great business or romantic location by Roslyn metro stop.

After a full day of museum-going in DC, we were looking for a good Asian restaurant near our hotel (Best Western/Iwo Jima) without having to travel back into DC. Cafe Asia was just what we were looking for. Good food, good service, good portions (maybe even too large!) and a varied menu with literally, something for everyone. I liked the... More
