Disappointing food for the prices, not great. Sushi and Orange Chicken were decent, however, you have to pay for the rice for the entrees. I have never heard of such a thing before. Waiter forgot soup and saki that was ordered. When the saki came, it was half-gone, and we were charged for the whole bottle. We waited 40 minutes for a check and to get our table cleared. When we finally talked to manager, he ignored us. There are much better restaurants in Salem.

We went as a couple on a week night to Taste of Asia. We ordered crab rangoon, 3 types of cooked sushi and an entree. The salmon in our sushi tasted bad and we were unable to eat it. We told the waiter and he proceeded to argue with my husband, trying to convince him it was not bad. We eat sushi often and this sushi was not okay. At the end of our meal, we were still charged for the bad sushi and there was no apology provided. We have been going to this restaurant about 10 times and it has been declining in quality for about a year. We will NOT go back.

As far as the more upscale Asian cuisine is concerned this restaurant is quite good. It has both Chinese and Japanese and I have found the food quite good and the service as well.

We love going to the Fresh Taste of Asia for their sushi bar, fresh fish, and reasonable prices as well as a friendly wait staff. Their japanese selection are delicious, though the salad that comes with the meals is just okay. Their chinese slections are good too and their hot and sour soup is vegetarian. We haven't had a bad meal here yet and we've probably been 15 times. Best to avoid late in the evening on Friday or Saturday nights - it can be noisy and crowded.
