I've been to this place several times since moving over to Lexington. It always seems to be very busy and the atmosphere is fairly nice. Also, the service I received was good on all visits. That is why it pains me to say that on all occasions I have left with a feeling that what I've eaten was not worth what I paid. The food compared to other places in the area is just average. I normally get the Kung Pao chicken or the Moo Shu Pork. Both are serviceable but nothing to write home about. I would compare the quality to your average Chinese fast food. I haven't tried the sushi yet and I've heard good things. Hoping that will be their saving grace because I want to like this place.

HLove going here! The owners & staff make you feel like family. The food is always wonderful. I love the honey walnut shrimp, but have never had anything here we didn't like.

Lunch today was my first visit to Antai. As Arnold said, "I'll BE BACK!!" Really enjoyed my Pad Thai, tasted great, served promptly and at the proper temperature. The wife's entrée was very good as well. The whole staff seemed friendly and genuinely glad to see us. Mario was our server and was helpful and efficient. Highly recommended!

We try to eat ant Antai once a week . The lettuce wraps are better than P.F. Changs's. The varied entrees are all perfectly cooked and seasoned to bring out optimum flavor without overwhelming the natural freshness of the food. Our favorites are Black Bean Scallops and the seafood Hot Pot. Family fun with a friendly, personal touch

This was my second visit to Antai. Went with friends who eat there at least twice a week. Once again the food was extraordinary. The brothers search out fresh local produce daily. The food selection is meticulous as is the preparation. Instead of the heavy handed sauces that camouflage most asian cuisine, the seafood or vegetables retain their original flavor with a hint of ginger or vinegar or soy highlighting and punching up the food. We have never been disappointed with any meals at this fine eatery. It's definitely worth the price, which is not always the case with other restaurants. It's a family restaurant so everyone gives value as though it was their own. Excellent as always.
