If you want something different, try Asparagus Restaurant. Located on 75th and Broadway near the west side of the Star Plaza theater in Merrillville, Indiana, it is a hidden Gem. Small plates to large entrees they have it all. You can order noodles or larger four course meals. Try the grilled asparagus..it is to die for. Top shelf bar, too!... More

Yum! If you don't mind a little adventure in eating, this is the place for you! We tried the seafood spring rolls. They were great. We each had a duck dish which was excellent. The service was great and the food was timely. There are so many things to choose from that I wish we lived closer!

My wife and I dined at Asparagus for the 2nd time since moving to the area. We live in Valparaiso and have a number of good restaurants close to home. Wanting a change of pace for her birthday, we returned to Asparagus and had another wonderful meal. We changed the time of our reservation through Open Table and were pleased... More

Amazing restaurant! The food was delicious. I had a ginger pear martini and the garlic pepper pork. The pork had a little kick of jalapeño to it and it was very flavorful. The boyfriend had the strip steak with a really interesting peanut sauce. The service was fast and friendly. The only two negatives is that it was a little... More

I was still a little skeptical after reading the other reviews. But wow! Who knew this little gem was in Merrillville. If you like fresh Thai, you won't be disappointed. I had Vietnamese roll and pad thai. I wasn't too adventurous, but when I go back I will go a little more out of the box.

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant, and once again they did not disappoint. The service was absolutely superb, and the food excellent. We had the house Pinot Noir, and it was surprisingly good. We will definitely be back!!

This was our first time at the Asparagus. We had kumquat quail and Parmesan baked oysters for appetizers. Th e quail was tender and juicy. The oysters were what I call chew-worthy: tender, not-fishy, and very yummy. WE both had dishes with shrimp and scallops with different sauces. The seafood was not overcooked and the veggies were just tender. The... More

Asparagus is currently my favorite restaurant in North West Indiana, and that is saying a lot considering all the terrific choices we have. The restaurant is just beautifully decorated. The ambiance is one of calm and beauty, just what one would imagine Asian fusion would look like. I eat there once a month with a group before an afternoon meeting... More
