Description: Excitingly Fresh & Uniquely Delicious Asian Fusion. Featuring a rich assortment of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Japanese salads, appetizers, Pho, rice, pastas, noodles, Poke bowls, seafood, and vegetarian specials. History Established in 2014. The family opened AA Nails and Spa several years ago after moving to New Smyrna Beach. They treated their customers to complimentary homemade Vietnamese cuisine and the response was so positive they decided to open a restaurant which offered everyone a chance to enjoy not only their traditional, made from scratch Vietnamese dishes, but also familiar dishes with an exotic twist that appealed to a wider audience. From their handmade Spring Rolls and traditional Vietnamese Pho made entirely from scratch using an age old family recipe, to delectable Poke Tacos topped with guacamole and cilantro yogurt sauce, AA Garden Fusion offers something exciting for every palette. Meet the Business Owner AA Garden Family "We are living the American dream," Neon Ngo stated firmly as she began to tell the story of her family and how they came to create AA Garden Fusion, one of the most talked-about new eateries in New Smyrna Beach. Arriving as a refugee in America all the way from Vietnam, her father, Sunny began work as a dishwasher in a MN restaurant. He believes you have to start somewhere. He worked his way up to caterer, sous chef, then eventually head chef of the restaurant until he was able to buy out the business, all within just four years. You can now find this industrious patriarch in AA Garden Fusion's kitchen, alongside his daughter Neon as they make sure every dish is executed with perfection. Family is the core of this restaurant. The whole staff is considered family. Newly hired chef Mark Davis remarked, "It is such a blessing to work alongside very professional, dedicated owners who treat even the newest guy here like a member of the family." Teri Derma exclaimed, "I love working here."

“Wow.... So amazing. New fav. ”

My fiancé and I came here tonight because it looked cute. We're pretty critical with food. This place was sooo sooo good. We had pho and the poke bowl. The poke bowl have delicious chucks of sushi grade tuna- avocado- an amazing sause- scallions- cilantro-yum!!! The service was great. So authentic- the cook/ owner even came out with a dish of something delicious looking. I commented on how great it looked and he have me some, it was an amazing Mongolian stir fry.
They also offer a few microbrews- just a cool place- with cool staff. Perfect beachside Asian joint- but better than most Asian restaurants - if you want authentic, cool, clean, quality and very decent prices..... Go here. This gives us another reason to drive to smyrna from Orlando!

“Thoughts of amazement!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Three of us visited for the first time at this new restaurant, and our daughter will be back for lunch tomorrow! We started with fresh, delicious spring rolls. Our entree dishes included the Poke Bowl over seaweed salad, instead of rice, and the tuna was the best! Excellent salmon, cooked to perfection, and the shrimp dish equally tasty. Service was a bit slow, but that said, we'll look forward to a return. Staff very nice!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

AA Garden Fusion is a MUST when visiting New Smyrna Beach. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is wonderful. I can't wait to visit again. We're just sad that we only ate there once during our vacation.
