Tasty Little Gem

Took my mother here for her birthday (large number) celebration. Had eaten there before many years ago, liked it and came back for a return visit. If anything, it's better now. We started with the lobster mango roll (very yummy) and satay, went onto five spice duck (terrific and huge) and... read more

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

One of my favorite restaurants. Have gone many times for lunch and dinner and everything I've ordered has been really good. Standouts include the pad woon Sen and the lemon chicken. The seafood egg roll is amazing. Highly recommend.

We were looking for a nice place to have lunch in Merrillville. The weather was a little muggy so were hoping we could find a place where we could sit down to cool off and if the place was not too expensive that would be a bonus. When I came across this place on trip advisor and open table, the... More

Not for us! We received a gift certificate for Asparagus from friends who enjoy dining here. I had heard so many great things about the restaurant from others and read about it in the local newspaper, my wife and I were quite eager to go. Once I opened the menu, I knew we were in the wrong place for our... More

Had a great dinner at Asparagus last night. Pulled the name off of Tripadvisor due to recommendations and our fellow diners were spot on. Green mango salad and calamari tempura for starters. The food was fresh and artfully presented. The portions were large enough to have been a small dinner. Entrees included sea bass and lemongrass shrimp and scallops. Again... More

I have been to Merrillville on business three times this year and Aspargus was recommended on our first trip. We made a point of going back two more times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. The wait staff are very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed the saffron grouper twice and a stir fry dish on another... More

Very good thai food in a lovely dining atmosphere. Prices are a bit high, but portions are very generous.
