Unique restaurant located in shopping center off Rt 460. Very attentive wait staff. Different menu from most eating establishments. Shrimp bowl was stuffed full of shrimp and cooked completely to my liking. Wife had fish and was very pleased.

The food is always cooked fresh and whether dining in or taking out, they have prompt service. The location is easy to get too, but sometimes evening parking is limited. Very small waiting area!

Lunch or dinner, Cafe Asia always pleases. Sushi is fresh and expertly prepared. Bento box specials are fabulous way to try several different things. Hot and Sour soup best in Roanoke. Love this place!

Sometimes you have to choose between great sushi or great Chinese food. Not at Café Asia. The sushi is top-notch and you won't find better Chinese food in the Roanoke Area (except if you go to Café Asia 2 on the other side of town!). Chicken, Beef, Pork, and Shrimp can be prepared Orange-style or General's-style, which is unique. The... More

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
