Asian Bistro is our choice when we are in a mood for a Chinese lunch buffet during the week or weekend. Unlike other Chinese buffets, Asian Bistro, which serves mostly Chinese and Thai dishes, has a limited number of choices in the buffet. The limited number of items gives them control over quality. Honestly, even at a buffet with conga line of buffet items most people stick to a few dishes. More importantly, for $8.95, which is the cost of a single lunch item anywhere, you can enjoy a sampling of soup, salad and a few Chinese and Thai dishes. My only criticism of this place is that they need to add a little oomph to their Sushi and dessert choices. Both these items, which are placed away from the buffet, seem like afterthoughts. I know that they have to control their costs, so they can't have a fancy Sushi and dessert offerings in the buffet without raising the cost. However, even a little variety in these departments will be a welcome change. By the way, if you change your mind at the last minute there is a great Indian buffet called Bollywood Bistro across from the Asian Bistro.

High quality food, with many different Asian choices. Good for a family that can't agree on Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese/sushi/etc. the manager, Alex, is great and his staff is pretty good too. This place always is empty, with no wait, but I don't know why because everyone I talk to loves it here. Outdoor seating available. Clean, light, modern decor inside.

Located in downtown Fairfax next to Panera, Wine House and Bollywood Bistro, in same building as parking garage. Buffet on Saturday starts at noon. Very fresh salad with cucumber slices, great dressing, etc. Hot & Sour soup, dumplings, several hot entrees including a General Tso's chicken my husband raved about, tofu & noodles, ginger curry chicken, pepper steak. Also, two kinds of sushi, and brownies (just OK) for dessert. Except for the brownies, everything was superb! Space is decorated beautifully, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They knew we were interested in the General Tso's Chicken, so when it came out, they let us know and invited us to try some even though we weren't finished with our first plate. We will be back! Super place! Also on Restaurant.com for dinner menu.
