With so many choices in Old Town, one might not think of an Asian-themed restaurant... but Asian Bistro offers a fantastic variety of food from Chinese, to Thai to Korean. It's conveniently located smack in the middle of Old Town (we were looking for something near our Escape Room adventure - perfect... right across the street!) and we couldn't have... More

Went here based upon TA reviews. It was unsure what to expect when we first walked in. Don't judge a book by its cover is definitely true here. The sushi was good, BUT the rolls were amazing. As well the prices were fair. Would highly recommend to all.

Tucked away in Old Town Alexandria, this welcoming bistro has a nice menu with the standard Asian fare. Service was prompt and friendly. Tables by the window offer a street view while quietly dining. The General Tso's chicken and the Spicy Thai Basil beef were very good. Would definitely return.

I stopped and had the Ramen with egg, noodles, pork and various other vegetables and spice that completed the meal. The edamame was good could have but a tad more salt.

Glad to be back on the East Coast. The sushi is definitely much fresher. They have a variety of Asian dishes. Their ramen is good too.

The food is really good and the service is awesome! Our food always comes out quickly and is cooked to perfection. I love the batter they use for the fried food, it is light and crispy. They also serve a salad with every meal. We go several times a month!

Found this restaurant while looking for a late dinner when we got into town. Waitress was very attentive and quickly served all those who were in the establishment. The sushi was good as well.

We were seated up front and very uncomfortable. There were fans further back but we had no benefit. All of us were disappointed in our meals, but the egg rolls were good. There simply was a lack of meat in the meat dishes. Our waiter disappeared for too long. Not likely to return.

Thank 2Alexandria
