We-R-Local. This restaurant offers a nice variety of Asian appetizers, sushi, and food. During our last visit we ordered the Bistro Sampler to start off with, which was really very good. If we weren’t starving, this probably would have been enough, with a drink. But we were hungry and both had the Shrimp & Veggie Tempura Bento Box. I would... More

The food was good. We didn't like the soup though but the rest of the food was ok. Nothing surprising. It was our first time there. And the service was fine.

The Asian Bistro offers a variety of oriental dishes ranging from Thai and Chinese to Japanese and Korean. the food is prepared well, the price is inexpensive, and the service is just great. It is quiet and a good place to meet with others.

I live where you can't get good sushi so rushed in for dinner on business and was not disappointed. I let them pick the rolls and all were good. Sushi was fresh and the rolls are large and very creative without being over the top. Service is friendly and very attentive, they seem to know many of their customers. Prices... More

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
