Red curry excellent and pad Thai awesome! Great service and suggestions on cocktails. Will return to try more dishes, as the menu is varied. Overall, wonderful experience

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

Merrillville is not my first choice for fine dining but Asparagus is a first rate Asian fusion restaurant nevertheless. Their menu offers a large choice of appetizers and entrees as well as a good wine list. Ambiance is good, service is friendly and attentive, and the prices are reasonable. Reservations are generally advisable.

TripAdvisor failed me big time on this place! We were seated early at 5 pm and forgotten. We had to go to front desk and ask for a server. My fiancé ordered their Asparagus plate because it had Bok Choy. They lied. It didn't. We waited another 10 minutes for waitress to return. She said she would get the Bok... More

We went to this restaurant when it just opened and their food as well as the service were better than now. The won ton soup was absolutely tasteless. The service was so slow and terrible at the same time. We ordered seabass which was not only very small but saggy and flavorless. I cant believe they get away with charging... More
