I really like the food here. We usually sit in the dining area, however last time we sat in the bar and it really enhanced the evening. The dining area is not nearly as comfortable and the lighting seems to be a bit cafeteria style. The bar lighting really sets off a better mood. The service is always top drawer... More

Very nice, neat, cozy, Thai place. Food is fresh and very good. Yet to find another Thai restaurant that matches up in the area. Red snapper dish is a must try. It's huge. Needs to improve desert options

Everyone raves about this place. I think it's a bit over priced and the food quality was just ok. It's one of those all around places that tries to do Chinese, Thai and Americanized versions. I have only gone there a few times and wasn't impressed so I haven't gone back. I was on a date once and a large... More

I have been a customer of Asparagus since they opened but I didn't expect the prices to go up so drastically in a short period of time. Example of some favorite dishes of mine: Thai egg rolls went from $4.95 to $6.00, Sesame Chicken $14.95 to $20.00, Thai fried rice with chicken $9.95 to $15.95. The portions haven't changed but...

Excellent food. I had Vietnamese spring rolls (not what I am used to--the dipping sauce was warm with whole peanuts--but tasty nevertheless) then "luxury clay pot" --- Flavor!---sea bass, scallops, shrimp in a carmelized broth with rice and a lightly vinegared slaw on the side. Cleaned the plate. Very pleasant cucumber martini to start. Ate at the bar. Bartender was... More

I've come here on several occasions and I can say that the food is consistently tasty snd the service consistently good . Be warned however that if you like your satay like I do and start ordering those in addition to your main course, it can get pricey .

Three of us went to dinner at Asparagus on a Friday night. We were seated within one minute. Our server was pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu. With his help, ordering was very easy. The food was served promptly. The portions are HUGE. We over-ordered...each dish could have served two people. Our food was delicious. The prices are a... More

As I am starting to write about my visit I see the recent reviews showing up to my right. One says TTTTTerible, the other one Overpriced below average Chinese buffet style food. They must have mixed up their dinner place they commented on. I travel a lot, mainly to big cities and enjoy always a good meal. This place ranks... More
