This is not an ordinary, run-of-the-mill Asian restaurant. Cafe Asia is small enough to feel intimate and large enough to hold a fair number of diners. Linen clothes are used and warm towels are brought to the table before and after your meal. I have always enjoyed everything that I have ordered and the food is quite fresh and presented... More

Best sushi in Roanoke. Staff is very friendly. Can get crowded on weekends, so go early. They have opened another Cafe Asia off of 419. Never been there. The owner will come around to speak to you. Very friendly.

I am always impressed by the excellent service I receive when I stop in Cafe Asia to grab a bite to eat. The staff is very friendly, especially the owner, who always makes a point to stop by everyone's table to engage in friendly conversation and offer suggestions. The atmosphere is very intimate and modern. The sushi is to die... More

My wife and I stopped here on a whim because we had few other options before heading out of town and are so glad we did. The food is exceptionally good, a huge variety of choices and types from Pad Tai to Sushi to Chinese fare. Everything we tried we loved and the service was great too. This is not... More

This was a great place to dine! I ate at the sushi bar and had the best service! The food was wonderful. I had the nightly box special so I got a taste of a little bit of everything!

there is plenty of parking, convenient location right off 419 by Annie Moore's, the atmosphere is typical Asian and the menu is large and varied.............. and the food is beautifully prepared, fresh sushi and delicious but $$$$$ - take lots of money!

While there may be lots of restaurants in larger cities that have a comparable selection and quality, this is definitely the best sushi restaurant in Roanoke. Not only that, they do a variety of Asian cuisines quite well. The pad thai noodles are outstanding, the dim sum is great (try the wasabi dumplings) and everything is prepared from scratch.

The food is always delicious, prepared and served impeccably. The doting wait staff ensures a good experience. The variety offered is quite ranging, too.

We had fairly high expectations when we arrived for a weeknight dinner recently; the reviews for this restaurant have been quite positive. And, we found many positive aspects during our visit as well. The interior appearance of the restaurant is a notch or two above many of the other Asian restaurants we have dined in. And some of the food... More
