Stayed in a hotel right next to it, didn't expect much because the inside looked more like a takeout, just a little better. There was only one server, not exactly excited to see more customers coming in, We ordered the Sliced fish in chili sauce cause that's our favorite while eating in a genuine Szechuan Restaurant, also a couple other...

We had dinner one night in Ithaca and the Asian food was ok. Service was good and the restaurant was clean.

We were leery as this venue has hosted some real losers over the years but tried lunch at a friend's suggestion. The hot sour soup was delicious, the best we have had in the area, and our entrees were delicious, generous and low priced. We will be back.

The Elmira Road in Ithaca is one of many Restaurant-Rows; lots of choices. I was hungry about lunch time and Spicy Asian was right there, so I tried it. All in all it was good. SPICY is an accurate representation. I'm not complaining, but it was SPICY. They have a $6.95 Lunch Special (I had to ask for that menu)... More

I ate here with my wife and daughter in October 2016. We had some hot and sour soup, which was excellent, and some egg rolls for appetizers. We ordered two main dishes -- one was from the Szechaun menu and one from the regular Chinese menu. I can't remember what we had but I do remember that the food from... More

The food here was great, and the service was, too. No problems with being slow as some have reported. I'd definitely recommend eating here.

My wife is from China and very demanding about the quality of any Chinese food we get when we go out. Spicy Asian is one of the few restaurants in Ithaca that satisfies her, and it's a regular favorite with many of the local Chinese community and foreign students as well. Forget the General Tso's Chicken and the other things... More

When your elbows don't stick to... More
