Delicious fresh asian food and sushi. Friendly and attentive service. We enjoyed it so much we went twice while we were in Buena Vista. Can be very busy on the weekends, but they do take reservations.

Great restaurant! Definitely the best spot for a romantic dinner and a authentic Asian meal. Sushi is great. So is the Adobo. But the Larb was my favorite dish. Highly recommended.

Very good Thai food on an inventive menu, but the sushi is especially worth the visit. Amazing that the fish is so fresh in this part of Colorado. Reservations are recommended since the locals really like this restaurant.

I have had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant since it opened about 5 years ago. In my opinion, the only thing wrong with it is the name as Asian Palate does not begin to describe all of the things this establishment bring to BV. This is a place were you'll find couples, family, friends and solos at eating... More

My boyfriend and I go hiking every year and would not miss out on eating here. The staff is very friendly and attentive and made sure our dining experience was fabulous. We had the sushi roll special for an appetizer and Thai curry dishes for the main course. All were presented elegantly and tasted great. This is a must visit... More

Where do I even begin...the hostess and waitstaff were welcoming, knowledgeable and prompt. The cocktails were divine and the food was amazing. Hats off to the musician playing the twelve string instrument; clearly very talented and a lovely touch to a dinner ambiance. Well done "Asian Palate".

Read about the place so wanted to try. Noting that there could be a wait, we called ahead even though it was early 5:30. Arrived, seated menu reviewed, etc. We are not sushi lovers so we stuck with the regular menu. Ordered the lettuce wraps with chicken which was ok. Then Thai beef with basil and padsieu with shrimp. Both... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. We have come back year after year. The sushi is great and you can't go wrong with any entree. Being from Dallas, my friends laugh when I say the sushi in this mountain town is top rate. Trust me, it's great!
