Found this restaurant while looking for a late dinner when we got into town. Waitress was very attentive and quickly served all those who were in the establishment. The sushi was good as well.

We were seated up front and very uncomfortable. There were fans further back but we had no benefit. All of us were disappointed in our meals, but the egg rolls were good. There simply was a lack of meat in the meat dishes. Our waiter disappeared for too long. Not likely to return.

Very good sushi. Wait staff very polite and helpful. Very clean and pleasant. I thought the variety was good. Menu on door does not include the sushi and sashimi selection...since my son wanted sushi we almost left but decided to stay and we were glad we did.

It was a particularly cold day and my wife suggested we find a place for some hot soup as we walked King Street in Alexandria's Old Town. Asian Bistro had several options indicating a restaurant with true Asian fusion. Menu options range from Thai to Chinese to Korean. There are a lot more choices that would be found in a... More

The sushi was decent. I did not have any fancy rolls. But the fish was fresh and decent sizes (see picture). They serve all types of Asian food from Japanese and Chinese as well as Thai. I always wonder if a place has too many diverse foods can they be any good. As far as sushi goes I would say... More

We ate dinner on a Sunday night and had the place pretty much to ourselves! We were a group of four and everyone had totally different cuisines from Asia. The sushi was wonderful and the hot dishes were excellent, service was warm and friendly! This is a favorite of many locals, especially for lunch takeouts according to our daughter!

our party of 7 was doing what it does best - being indecisive about where to eat, so we pulled out the phone, looked at Trip advisor and suggested going here - glad we did. We ordered a variety of mains to share between us, some rice and noodles. The portions were decent sized and so everyone was full without... More

We stopped here for a late lunch with a party of six. Everyone enjoyed their meal. It was extremely fresh and served super fast. We will definitely be back next time we are in town. Chicken teriyaki and Pad Kapow Seafood were soo good!
