We decided to try Café Asia due to its many excellent reviews. We were a little disappointed. It is very pricey for what it is. The sushi is OK, but nothing special compared to restaurants who offer similar dishes less expensively. Service was relatively slow. An OK dining experience, but not a place that will go into the regular rotation.

First of all it is NOT your run of the mill strip mall Chinese restaurant. This place is very clean the furniture is upscale and the service is excellent. They have an outstanding menu with a wide variety of Asian foods. I ordered a very simple dish, shrimp fried rice. It was cooked to perfection and had a very smoky... More

Great food, and service, and prices, Just that you sit so close to others and noisy, hard to talk in normal conversation. Why do restaurants do this? But overall will keep going back and enjoying.

Both of these restaurants are amazing and never disappoint. The food is fresh and full of flavor, not full of MSG and over seasoned like at some places.The wait staff is friendly and efficient. The owner makes very one feel welcome. The drunken chicken , pad thai and maki suishi are so so good!! Nothing bad on this menu!

I knew that we would have to wait to get into Cafe Asia, it’s also packed. Luckily, we were offered a sit at the Sushi Station, which meant we would also be entertained by the talented Sushi Chefs. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The entrees were amazing. I enjoyed the "Beef Nigimak" and my wife was served the... More

Met a friend for lunch and it was some of the best food ever. The salad was crisp with yummy dressing. The meals were so big I took some home for lunch the next day. Definitely will be back many times

Lucky enough to live so close to this restaurant. Always excellent service, delicious dishes and so welcoming. Staff goes out of their way to be helpful. There is a reason it is so successful and many travel from across Roanoke to eat here. Sushi dishes are excellent as is the presentation. If you are looking for the more than above... More
