We have eaten in & taken out several times. The food is delicious Sadly, I witnessed the help going in to the bathroom, heard the flush & came right out with no wash of hands 🤦🏼‍♀️ Wish i said something.

We were so excited to dine here, however...had to ask very nice wait person for water and tea. Hot and Sour soup was tepid and tasteless . Shumai was good as was the Peking Duck . The DRY HOT POT was nothing but a stir...fry in a bowl with a flame under it - nothing like a traditional hot pot ( which is why we came 😩). The unagi don ( eel over rice) was tasty but not authentically served. We really wanted to make this out go to place, but cannot do that nowMore

I was visiting Warren to see family and after complaining about how long it had been since we had good Chinese food, we decided on Ashia. They accommodated one of our parties dietary requests, which was a good curry. My cousin and I both had...creative Chinese (inspired, fused?) dishes, one shrimp and one chicken in a pot, forgive me but I can not remember the names of these dishes but I remember my pleasure at the taste. In addition to the entrees we had 2 appetizers, veg dumplings and a tuna tempura. Like one of the previous reviewers i am “suspicious“ of Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Asian restaurants but this was a pleasure and I recommend Ashia.More

OK, I am suspicious of any restaurant that serves Chinese AND Japanese AND Thai AND sushi ...... can it possibly excel at all these cuisines? Ashia gives it a valiant effort and at least achieves adequate if not outstanding results. This is not a place...to make you swoon, but if your party consists of diners with disparate desires Asnia will keep them all at peace.More

My wife and I stopped in for a quick lunch. Bonus is they serve the $6.95 lunch specials on Saturday. Soup, entree, beverage, nothing great, but fresh, tasty and filling. Chicken fried rice for my wife and sesame chicken for me. Egg drop soup is...nothing special. There are 20 other enter options too. Closer to good but not very good.More

We were in a hurry so we ordered only appetizers. Sonny spoke broken English but we got along just fine. He brought us egg-rolls, spicy won ton pork dumplings (Cantonese style) and a large portion of spicy garlic eggplant. The food was served hot and...we liked the dumplings and eggplant bestMore

A great neighborhood place to go, especially if your're hungry. The food here is great. Tasty and nice, large portions. The staff is very accommodating. They have a very varied Chinese and Thai selection and there is a Sushi chef on premise making "to order"...Sushi, which comes magnificently presented. One of my favorites, my wife an I eat there once a week and we have never been the slightly disappointed with any dish we have ordered. BYOB so bring your favorite wine, most people do. All in all, a great place to go!More

Jenny is the best server who would go above and beyond to cater your need; while you dine. Chicken fried rice and vegetable with tofu in dry pot is my favorite.

Quick and easy. We came to this next of the woods to visit with my financial adviser. Don't come this way much, so after a quick search of what's good to eat in this area, we settled on Thai and Ashia. It was kinda empty...when we got there... with only one waiter, but it filled up pretty quickly as we sat waiting for our food. Having only one waiter it took a bit of time. We both had the Pad Thai with chicken... mine a little more spicy than my wife's. Both were very good. We had some tea, but it is a BYOB if you wanted to bring a bit of libation. Only the service was slow (understaffed) but other than that... we liked it.More

Frankly, I'm shocked this place doesn't have a much higher rating. We went for the first time tonight, after eyeing the place for a year, and were pretty much blown away! Friendly, attentive staff, nice decor, and excellent food. The Cantonese pork dumplings with a...spicy peanut sauce were the best I've had, and the chicken Pad Thai was spicy and perfect. A special of chicken Dry Pot was spicy and awesome...not a drop was left. We found a new favorite...best Asian in the area by far :)More

Okay so I went last night with my Mom. She got the shrimp with lobster and I the Chirashi. I have gotten this dish more times than I can count -but this was the most beautiful a presentation I have ever had. The added touch...of the sliced cucumbers was a refreshing treat. Have a look at the photo. The slices of fish were larger than normal and I truly enjoyed the experience. I did not feel rushed at any time. The take out counter was a bit busy and they knew their regular customers by name. I would not hesitate to go here again. Now I know it is BYOB so I will go prepared. The idea of 3 different cuisines was quite welcome by these diners. Peace and give it a try - I will again.More

I love going here at least once a week as they have a dry pot dish now which is really good. I like this dish because it is made like a stir fry but less oil and very little sauce is used which means no...MSG!!! You can get this dish from mild to very spicy, and they can mix it up with a combination of any seafood, and meats...its a must try. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine, a friend and just sit back and relax.More

Decided to try Ashia Oriental for midweek dinner. I admit that I am not a fan of most Asian food but I have enjoyed a few places. My wife likes many types of Asian cooking. We entered Ashia to one very large room. There was...a sushi bar to the left, a counter with register where you can pick up your take out order, straight ahead and a large dining area with many tables and booths to the right. The dining room was decorated with very sparse generic artwork and calming music was playing. Only one other couple was seated. Our waiter brought us a bowl of crisp fried ribbon noodles and a bowl of duck sauce which we enjoyed. The menu had a homemade dumpling appetizer with pork, chicken or shrimp filling. Since we have only had pork before, we decided to try the shrimp. The outside was fresh and good but the shrimp filling tasted and smelled like it was old and ready to spoil. When the waiter cleared the table and 4 of the 8 dumplings were still there he asked if we would like them boxed to go. We said no and he didn’t think to ask us if there was anything wrong. My wife had the Happy Family, a combination of meat, seafood and vegetables in a brown sauce. Everything including the shrimp was fresh and she said the dish was okay. I had the General Tao’s half & half which is General’s chicken with shrimp as well. My first bite had a strong taste of peanut oil. The chicken and shrimp were fresh but I did not care for the breading and sauce. The spiciness was perfect. My wife liked the breading more than I did. Overall I was not impressed with Ashia Oriental and I do not recommend it.More
