Great quick place to eat when craving sushi. Been here a few times on an hour lunch and have made it out in plenty of time. The rolls are good but nothing mind blowing.

Quick, good food. Wide Sushi selection. Had their steamed shumai - chicken, veggies, topped with crab meat. Decent, with a seasoned light soy sauce to accompany, julienned beet-carrot-radish salad. Somewhat overdone. Salmon Bento box - 4 California rolls, salad, rice, large steak of fish on a bed of cabbages and beans. Very filling. Prompt service. Meal for two $45

Food was good. Lunch specials were $7.50, and included spring roll and rice. White rice is only given on weekends & I would rather have had fried rice. Egg drop soup was good and at $2.50/bowl, it was large enough to have been a meAl in itself. Have to pay for parking.

Had dinner with 3 work colleagues tonight and had one of my worst meals ever. I ordered the spring roll appetizer, which was quite tasty but served cold. For my main course I ordered a noodle dish with shrimp. The food arrived and tasted like the sauce was burned, and lacked any other flavor. I added soy sauce to see... More

I went to Asian Bistro at 6:30pm on a Saturday night. It was dead inside the restaurant. There were a few people in the outdoor area, which is nice in the spring. The drinks were great - great bartenders. The sushi roll was flavorless. But the ramen made up for it with lots of flavor. Just thought it was unusual... More

Asia Bistro Sushi Bar is ideally located at Pentagon Row next to skating rink (winter). It is cozy, with booths in front, a bar, and tables in back. It's not fancy, but has a semi-hip vibe. The menu is extensive (food and drink). I felt like tempura and sushi, so went for a bento box. It was great. Service was... More

Nice, small, quiet restaurant. Perfect for a quick, light, late night meal in the Pentagon Row area. Obviously a regular haunt of many locals. Tempura spicy salmon sushi roll was delicious. I would definitely eat here again when I am back in the area.
