This restaurant needs to stick the Asian cuisines that don't touch on Japan--or the Americanized version of it. I tried their special, Nikko Maki. The overly breaded attempt at converting a stuffed jalapeño into something Asian was a complete failure. I don't understand the translucent sweet sauce they put on rolls; no one needs an icing glaze on, what should... More

My daughter and I were in the mood for Chinese but were a little tired of the same old places we usually go, so we decided to give Cafe Asia a try . . . and were glad we did. We shared an appetizer of Pot Stickers--which were their version of fried dumplings--and both agreed that they were somehow better... More

Nice staff and food is pretty, but not worth the money. would not go back. Very confused why they are rated this high on trip advisor. So many other great options around. Not child friendly. If you're not very hungry and want some sushi to go to hold you over till dinner, this is your place.

Very good Chinese food for a town like this and in this somewhat grim edge-of-a-shopping-mall setting. The sushi was good too. It really does appear to be one of the best restaurants in Roanoke - though that is probably more a reflection of the town than the restaurant.

I ordered a chicken dish with fried rice. The pot sticker appetizers were great and it was fun eating them with chop sticks! Staff was very friendly and helpful! Way to go Roanoke for allowing this restaurant to replace Bajha Bistro.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on 7/25/14. The food was great and had fresh ingredients. Hot and Sour Soup is great, along with the Spring Roll! If you're looking for good authentic Asia food this is the place to go.

Never had a bad experience at Cafe Asia. Food and service are always top notch. Two different sushi combos are available every day, so variety is always there. Highly recommend.
