While I've visited here a few times with an OK experience, unfortunately I have to give a poor report on their steamed shrimp and scallops. It was very bland, no flavor except for the old, almost spoiled scallops in the dish. It was definitely ho hum and boring. The water once again tastes like dirty water due to the glasses... More

You stand on line, order, pay & wait for your number to be called over the loudspeaker system. Then, pick up your tea and utensils, and find a seat. It didn't take long for them to deliver our dishes. It was very clean and spacious. The dishes were both authentic Chinese and a variation of what I'm used to, and... More

I go here once a quarter with colleagues to celebrate certain accomplishments. It may not look like much, but the food is fantastic. The spicy fish, spicy eggplant, and several tofu dishes are my favorite. You can't go wrong - but branch out from the traditional American Chinese dishes!

Asia café was just ok. I was expecting more prior to our visit, having heard great things about the food. We ordered a handful of dim sum dishes and they were not that great, rather ho-hum. We should have ordered a different meal dish or two to compare the quality, but we did not. I wouldn’t go here again.

Terrific local Chinese. Very authentic, very good. Line is often out the door at lunch. Good specials, often very unusual offerings.

A roomy hole in the wall. Family size orders of authentic Asian cuisine. Pricing is good for the portions served. They have party rooms too. You walk in and get in line to order. As you get close to the front you have menus but I wouldn't wait till then because of their vast selection. If you are in a... More

When we visit our children and grandchildren this is a place we always visit. We have 11 people so we try to get the room off the main floor. There is a large round table where everyone can see and talk to everyone. The menu is so varied that the pickiest eater can find something. Meat eater or vegetarian can... More

A simple layout, you order get a ticket with a number and seemingly within moments that number is called for you to collect your food. All the dishes were fresh and large with plenty of food for all of us. Each of the dishes were tasty as well and great value for the cost. Don't go for the fit out... More

Don't expect table service. Excellent authentic Asian food served in a loud busy no ambience restaurant. Not a place to impress friends, but it will definately impress your taste buds.
