This restaurant is located across the street from the Comfort Inn and made for a last minute choice for a late dinner. We opted to share one dish with a side starch to keep it simple (and hopefully digestible) due to the late hour. The choice was crispy honey prawns with assorted nuts. We chose, thanks to the server's recommendation,... More

The exterior is not appetizing, and I only ventured inside because of a recommendation. The interior is also not very attractive. Service is slow --not carefully, caringly slow, just slow. There are several comfortable options for dining alone. Although there does not appear to be much attention to presentation, the food is well prepared and seems to be of good... More

Got this recommendation from hotel staff. Excellent Asian food at a very good price. More than we could eat so we had lunch for the next day. The chicken in honey glaze with cashews was a winner.

This restaurant is just average for the stir fry style dishes we ordered -- unfortunately I don't remember exactly what we had. The restaurant is nice enough. Based on other reviews, it sounds like sushi would have been a better choice.

Any trip to Bellingham, Washington is a great excuse for stopping for lunch or dinner at the Asian 1. It is conveniently located across the parking lot from Costco, plenty of parking and once you enter the restaurant, you are in for such a treat. The food and presentation are top notch as is the service. If you are lucky... More

I had the Rainbow and the Phan-tasy rolls. Both were phenomenal. The fish and crab were fresh (they even guarantee fresh tasting sushi or they will take it back). Don't judge the book by its cover. It is in a strip mall and the country oak furniture is odd for a sushi place. However, this sushi is some of the... More

Excellent sushi-fresh and well presented. The country log furniture is a little odd for a sushi spot bit the service is friendly. Not sure why it takes so long to get sushi-I ate both dinner and lunch here and both times the cooked food arrived much sooner than the sushi. Don't go for a quick bite-plan to sit down and... More

We stopped in with our daughter and husband and infant son, were seated promptly. The place was busy which is most often a good sign. Although it was busy the service was way above average and the food served promptly. the food was worth waiting for. All in all I liked this place and will return again.

I love this place! The atmosphere is really something special. Really tasty sushi. I'm a college student and I find the prices reasonable. I would call the food fusion. There's a lot of non traditional things on the menu that you won't find elsewhere but there's also the classics too. I won't buy a pad Thai anywhere else!

The food is alway good and there's a wonderful variety of items to try in the menu. The sushi is always fresh and expertly prepared. The employees are knowledgeable and friendly. The overall atmosphere is wonderful and is a very enjoyable experience.
