A Great Find for Vegetarians

As a vegetarian I often find the choices available to me at Asian restaurants to be quite limited. Soups are almost always made with a meat base, and available main courses are restricted to rice or noodle concoctions minus the meat (or so I am told). I was delighted by the astonishing number of... read more

Miso soup tasted faintly of old fish: we couldn't eat it. Chicken in teriaki chicken was cool; when I complained, it was "reheated" but barely warm when returned. A fellow diner's tempura shrimp tasted of borderline / old grease. I would not return to this place.

Convenient location and quick service....just wasn't impressed with the food. Other family groups seemed to be enjoying theirs, so it may have been my choice -- think that perhaps another choice would've been better. Staff was pretty attentive and the price was good.

Recently visited on a rainy night, the restaurant was almost empty. The service was adequate, but the dining room was not inviting, in fact buckets, mops and cleaning rags were evident. Plus the dining room was totally undecorated. I noticed many carry out orders near the door. While the food was plentiful, fresh and well prepared, I will not return.

We've been going here for years - the food is great and the staff is very nice. And you get a mini chocolate bar with your bill!

This place works for that. Though prepare for the the kick in the 'hot'. The rest is ok. Shrimp, chicken dishes only alright. Stay away from the mixed drinks A beer or a glass of wine is a better choice.

As the title says, this is a nice neighborhood place. We eat here regularly. The food is not exotic, but is always good and reliable. The service is generally fast and friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant. Note- it calls itself Asian Bistro, but really it's Chinese food and sushi. Tried the Pad Thai once and did not do that...

I keep giving this place a try and it always disappoints. It seems popular enough but I don't like it.

I had a taste for sushi, and I guess this place was alright, but nothing too exciting. They seem to have a lot of staff just hovering, although it seemed to be a slow night, so probably looking for something to do. I kind of wish I had chosen the Red Lobster next door.
