We took a friend there and it was our first time also. We had all been wanting sushi and were excited. We had reservations and when we were seated a table of five came in and sat near us. We just happened to know one of the couples. We ordered sushi at the same time they ordered. They were... read more

After trying unsuccessfully to get reservations on Valentines Day we stopped in on President's Day for dinner. Sarah, our server, was pleasant and attentive and definitely helped make our dinner enjoyable. We started with edamame and a special sushi roll with yellowtail, avacado, jalepenos, and macadamia nuts. The sushi roll was delicious and I wish I would have stuck with... More

Small town but boy does this place have big flavor. My favorites: coconut curry soup and green curry with chicken. But everything is made fresh and wonderful. Reservations necessary in the summer. Crowds out the door but well worth any wait. Very friendly wait staff and owners will chat with you. Have gone with various friends who are a little... More

Outstanding sushi. Very fresh. Cooked dishes were really good too. Interesting spices, but not too hot or overwhelming. Fun scene.

We sure are happy we took the advice of some locals and went to dinner at The Asian Palate! We had fantastic sushi and the most deliciously prepared chicken wings for appetizers. For our main entrees, we had the dinner special and the Pad Thai. The portions are very generous, so we were too full to indulge in the desserts.... More

Arrived fairly late so the restaurant was packed. A good sign, especially for small mountain towns in the winter. Got to sit at the Sushi bar (highly recommend - fun) and watch the Sushi art being created. Very fun! We had several types of sushi and cooked dishes - high recommend everything. The noodle dishes are delish (and spicy if... More

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.
