This is a quick Lunch -- what you pay is what you get. Cheap eat to be not hungry. I'd recommend getting the vegetarian options, instead of meat.

This was a great, quick lunch after completing our campus visit at UNC. The staff was extremely friendly.

We've been ordering take out regularly from Asia Café for over 3 years. The food is consistently very good, hot and delivered on or before the time specified. The staff and delivery staff are very friendly. Recommend the Hot and Sour soup and Orange Beef. The portions are large and there are always left-overs.

I've been coming here regularly for two years now. I love the hot and sour soup, it's the only thing I want to eat when I catch a cold. The Orange chicken is fantastic. The employees are really nice and the prices are very reasonable.

Food was served fast and this is big plus as I was short in time. I liked the decor and the Asian atmospher of the place. Will try other places next time but this one was really good.

trl;dr The food was cold, late, and incomplete. They then went on to call me a liar after telling GrubHub that they would fix the missing item. I used to order Asia Cafe regularly through GrubHub as it was decently cheap and usually decent quality. Last night (Saturday Night) I ordered ~$40 of food around 6PM. The wait time that... More

Delivery took over an hour on a Thursday night. Unacceptable. The food was boring, bland, and just plain disappointing. One tip if you decide to take the plunge, don't order from Tar Heel Takeout. You can order directly through Asia Cafe for FREE.

We used Tarheel Takeout to order from Asia Cafe, and they delivered it right to our condo. My husband had the vegetable egg rolls and the Kung Pao Chicken, and loved both. The egg rolls were among the best I've ever had. Very fresh and custom cooked - and fast!!!! Highly recommend this restaurant for takeout!

Just had take out via Tarheel Takeout from Asia Cafe, and it was SUPER!!!! Fabulous fresh vegetable egg rolls, some of the best Kung Pao Chicken I've ever had (warning: spicy hot!), even the fortune cookies were delicious and fresh! And the servings were HUGE! Definitely a "do again"!
