Best cashew chicken!

I'm not a sushi lover (my husband is), so when we go to Café Asia, I always order their cashew chicken. I love that it comes with vegetables because the other meat dishes I like don't. Their egg rolls are pretty good too and their wait staff is super friendly!

I love my Chinese food. Since moving here 8 years ago, I've eaten all over town looking for "my spot". Found it here. Great Lo Mein, service, and all around Chinese food... and as icing on the cake, the best sushi in town.

I live within a few miles of here. I have eaten here a few times and it's always good. My friend and I went here a couple of weeks ago. I had the pad thai and it was excellent.

We were passing through and decided to try this place out which had received good reviews. We were glad we did. The menu was very diverse, with various Asian selections. The sushi was a bit expensive, but it tasted fresh. We also had drunken noodles that were very good, and two chicken dishes -- the General Tso and the Garlic... More

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
