Barely better than average. Rude management, refused to honor a coupon from KET, the Kentucky Public Broadcasting Network. They advertise they have been in business 17 years. You can tell. Same wallpaper and booths! Many better places for this type of food in Lexington. Stay away from here.

I absolutely love their Bang Bang Shrimp & Sesame Chicken, so much so I am going to have to force myself to try the other dishes because I am certain they will be just as good! I will never order Asian cuisine from anywhere else!

We have been long time fans of Geaorge and his crew at Asian Wind. However, we have been really disappointed twice in a row. The breading on our fried scallops was soggy, our egg rolls were flavorless, and the dumplings were bland. We will give it one more shot, but after that we will move on. I'm trying to avoid chain Chinese food, but we are running out of options.

The Asian Wind is a family run restaurant staffed by the Owner (George), his wife, his mother, his brother-in-law, his sister-in-law, his brother, various nieces and nephews, cousins and long time employees -- well you get the idea. George's dad was associated with Chiang Kai Shek -- so when Chairman Mao came to power the family followed Chiang to Taiwan. In the early 70's George and his wife immigrated to the United States where he did his internship at a number of this nation's fine Chinese eateries. After a few years George made his way to Lexington where he opened (with a partner) the Hunan restaurant on Southland Drive. After a few more years George decided to branch out on his own and thus the Asian Wind restaurant came into being.

George is obsessed with all types of cooking and enjoys eating at other restaurants. His eclectic approach has resulted in a menu which, while owing a great deal to authentic Chinese cooking, is not limited by its parameters. His sauces, scalding hot Chili peppers (get George talking about his peppers -- he's a connoisseur of all types of peppers, even grows his own -- and the resulting conversation is not one to have if you find yourself on a time schedule) and innovative bent transform a dining experience at the Asian Wind into one like none other in Lexington.

Personally, having been raised on the China Town fare of New York and San Fransisco I'm an addict of his more traditional Chinese dishes (Kung Pao Chicken, General Tsao's Chicken, Peking Duck and String bean), but don't let my hang ups limit your horizons.

The price is quite reasonable and the service is normally pretty good. All in all one of the best Asian dining experiences in the region. Try it.
