Went with a couple friends on a Wednesday night. It is gorgeous on the inside and has a nice atmosphere. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Everything was so good! Overall was a great experience.

I don't know if it's Asian Thai or what, I just know those spring rolls/egg rolls are the best I have ever eaten and I will go back strictly to have those again. Everything I ordered was delicious, but those really stood out.

I was there with my ladies group around 12 of us and they accommodated us very well. I didn't know for sure what they served so I looked up the menu before I came. I had the salmon that was wonderful. I order some type of chai tea that I didn't care for but out server gladly switch it to... More

Tried this restaurant for the second time and liked it. We had the Calamari, and found it to be a little rubbery. The Asparagus Wraps were very good and we loved them as our second appetizer. My husband had the Shrimp fried rice and it was very good, and I had the Scallops as my dinner, even though it is... More

We had Thai egg rolls (best ever) and eggplant for appetizers. I highly recommend both. The Pad Thai was fabulous and a single order was easily enough for two. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly.

I went to Asparagus due to Trip Advisor naming it #1 in Merriville. Am SO GLAD I did! My husband and I came from out of town and I went for lunch while he was in a class. My waiter, Jeremy, was a complete delight. Helped me with my selections and was so attentive. I had the avocado spring rolls... More

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
