Thai food with side of French...or is it the other way around

Both the Thai and French influenced dishes are very good. The bar has a wonderful selection of fun martinis and the general atmosphere is calm and enjoyable. Be warned the kitchen has a consistently heavy hand with the salt.

We went there two times and with both we waited forever for the waiter to get to us. Every time they said they had a large group coming in and that's why the service was slow to none. I'm sorry, but we were patrons too. We should be considered even if there are only a few of us. After all,... More

Every New Year's Eve, for the last 5 years, my husband and I have driven 100 miles to Merrillville, IN for an overnight stay at the Radisson. This includes following our usual NYE tradition of stopping by Asparagus restaurant, for a drink or two and some appetizers and as always, we were happy and satisfied This restaurant is quiet, beautiful...

Rivals anything downtown Chicago for flavor, and a courteous, attentive staff that excels expectations. Highly recommended to foodies novice or seasoned.

It is a very nice place, however it’s a bit pricey for what they offer compared to Asian restaurants in Chicago. Before deciding to go to this establishment, I went to their website to get an idea of their offerings. The menu on their website hasn’t any prices. I found that somewhat strange. Keep in mind that I am offering... More

I'll stick to "very good", beautiful atmosphere. One side very romantic with a piano bar. The menu is very good and some plates excellent. Is pricy but is well elaborated cuisine. Traffic or parking is not an issue. If new to area is a must. We are due to go again

We showed up without a reservation and they were busy, so we sat in the bar area, we made a great decision. Menu had so many great looking choices, we decided to ask our waitress for her input for an appetizer, and her suggestion of spring rolls were great starters. They were tasty and very well prepared. My wife had... More

I'm originally from the Region and was staying with friends for a visit. To thank them for their hospitality, I wanted to treat them to dinner at their favourite restaurant. Their choice: Asparagus. I get why it's their favourite. For appetizers, they suggested the soft shell crab ($12) and crispy avocado rolls ($8). I also recommend them. Could have eaten... More

After a long interval we enjoyed to our heart content in a restaurant ! It was a very satisfying dining experience.  The menu is predominantly asian infused meals of Thai in origin!  It has a wide variety choice of delicious dishes and one can choose anything and possibly would never be disappointed! We ordered avacado crispy roll, Vietnamese spring roll,... More
