Café Asia, very well presented delicacy of Asian food. My financial advisor and I went to Café Asia located in Valley Gateway Roanoke, VA. We ordered Pad Thai (chicken based) It was my first time and I really enjoyed the food. You can ask the waitress how spice hot food you preferred and they will serve you accordingly.

This is my favorite sushi joint to visit when I am in town. Super fresh sashimi! My husband loves the mango and sticky rice. Always presented beautifully!

They could easily ask $100 or more per lunch in NYC for this spectacular food. But here it is hidden away near Roanoak! In a little strip mall. The best hot & sour soup I've ever had by far. Anywhere. Chicken in Garlic Sauce fantastic; perfectly cooked pot stickers. This place is amazing (and, no, I don't work for them).... More

The food is always fresh and served hot. The staff is amazing and very helpful. The servers return to make sure the customers are satisfied. I love the warp towel etiquette. Amazing restaurant!

We went to the original restaurant on the east side of Roanoke. As usually the food was very good. We had several types of sushi, California roll, spicy tuna, and shrimp tempura. The tuna could have been a little more spicy, but the tuna seemed fresh and consisted of a very large portion. We then had general tso's chicken and... More

With the exception of Thai cuisine, we’ve been unable to find really good Asian or Chinese food in eastern Tennessee. Consequently, it’s one of the dining experiences that we search for when we travel. Based on a lot of positive on-line comments, we drove out to the far suburbs to give Cafe Asia a try...
