One of the best meals ever!

I'm originally from the Region and was staying with friends for a visit. To thank them for their hospitality, I wanted to treat them to dinner at their favourite restaurant. Their choice: Asparagus. I get why it's their favourite. For appetizers, they suggested the soft shell crab ($12) and... read more

After a long interval we enjoyed to our heart content in a restaurant ! It was a very satisfying dining experience.  The menu is predominantly asian infused meals of Thai in origin!  It has a wide variety choice of delicious dishes and one can choose anything and possibly would never be disappointed! We ordered avacado crispy roll, Vietnamese spring roll,... More

This place seems hidden to me on Broad, just north of Rt. 30 with an unimposing facade. The amazing thing is inside the restaurant is a high level dining experience. The menu is predominantly Thai in origin, but this is not your average noodle house. A wide variety of curries and seafood dishes make you want to come back because... More

Stopped for dinner in Merrillville on our way home. Thai food sounded appetizing so we gave Asparagus a try. The restaurant is lovely and the appointments are tasteful. However, a party of eight was rather noisy so I would not say it was serene or zen-like. We were seated immediately and service was efficient. The wine list covered all the... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. Our waitress was fantastic. She was so informative with the menu and told us that we could add or remove items from the stir fry if we wanted extra or didn't like/were allergic to them. It was very affordable, too. We had cocktails, two appetizers, entrees with wine, and dessert for... More

They specialize in two of my favorite things, Thai food and martinis, And both are wonderful. I test Thai restaurants by their ability to make green curry chicken. The one I had at Asparagus was just the perfect amount of sweet, followed by that wonderful bite of flavor. The martini menu was enormous, making it difficult to select. But we... More

Tempura fried green beans to start were amazing. Banana Duck curry also great. Server was very helpful. Glad you can adjust the heat you want in the curry as I'm a heat fan but my mom is not. Overall a bit pricey but great food. Worth it!!

went for our anniversary celebration. We were seated in a very small room right off the bar and with 4 tables for 4 potential diners, it was claustrophobic. Acoustics turned out to be hideous; when trying to converse so as not to disturb other diners, we frankly could not hear one another. Server was awful. She brought drinks separately from... More
