A most remarkable meal in the mountains!

The proprietor ships in fresh fish from the Pacific 2-3 times a week. GREAT hot dishes as well. NOT the usual pan-Asian rural restaurant... this kitchen knows what they're doing. If you're in the Buena Vista area, this restaurant is worth a trip. For Sure!

Not a whole lot to say. Food here is good. Not amazing, but again... this is a mountain town. We would say that the Pad Thai is terrible and no where near authentic. Everything else we have had is good. Definitely over priced. Not a place we eat often unless friends choose it. Much prefer Eddyline and Quincy's steakhouse.

I ate here a few weeks ago and was very happy with the food! For that they get 5 stars. Very fresh fish and great sushi rolls! An absolute gem in such a small town. I do have to caution however that the young man behind the sushi bar was quite aggravated, very unprofessional and made me and the other... More

Have been going to BV for many years, and have never had good asian food anywhere in the central range. So, when looking for a place to eat on our last night of our family reunion vacation we went into town and unexpectedly went into the Asian Palate based on a recommendation from one of our other family members. QUITE... More

love the locally owned ambiance. Good sushi and thai food. Not so kid friendly, not good for large groups.

We ate six dinners in town during a recent vacation. We also are Thai food fans. From appetizers to entrees to desserts, we were very pleased and admittedly a bit surprised. What we had read and heard about the Asian Palate was that it was a good place to go for sushi. We never ordered sushi but still thought we... More

Great selections on the menu for Asian dishes, and a wide array of options for sushi, sushi I and rolls. The absolute best tuna sushi anywhere.

I had the Sushi and the others in our party had meals. Everyone was pleased with their food. Seems like the locals eat here to, which speaks well of the place. I would go here again.

We are from the Houston area and dine out frequently. This restaurant would compete with many in a large metro area. The food was great at much lower price points than in the big city. Plus the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Made some good recommendations we tried and liked. Not the typical mountain cuisine but... More

The setting is nice, in a historic building, in a nice downtown area. Our service was prompt and good. We shared the seaweed salad, which was fairly large, tasty, and nicely presented. We each had a sushi roll. The presentation of the rolls was OK, nothing special. The fish seemed fresh. Considering the price, which was rather high, the rolls... More
