    beautiful patio ambiance, terrific service. Two of us dined: I was happy w/my order (a sushi/sashimi combo) but my partner's spicy tuna really wasn't. Definitely needed a bit of kick - very bland. I also was annoyed that they charged me $4 extra just for brown rice. They charge $4 for a whole SIDE of brown rice on menu and this wasn't a side...at most 2 tablespoons. Cmon people: I'm already paying $25 for plate: $1-2 extra is what every other high end place in Ft Laud charges. (And there's no mention in the menu or by the server about upcharge.) Again, not the end of the world, but just enough to turn me off in terms of valuing customers when you're paying $70+ for a few rolls, one cup of soup and a $6 bottle of beer.

    The service was above and beyond. The restaurant manager was friendly, personable, helpful, and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and well taken care of. She even went the extra mile to make my boyfriend's birthday very special with a birthday dessert (which, by the way, was absolutely incredible both in presentation and flavor!). Our waiter was also perfectly wonderful and attentive. The restaurant is on a waterway and has outside seating which is quite charming as well. The food was wonderful - expertly prepared and plated - and very fresh (we ordered sushi rolls - perfection!!! Thank you Jessica and Alfred and those we didn't get to see in food prep for a perfect Sunday afternoon. :)

    First off, this particular location is nestled into Las Olas- a fancy way of saying "the most expensive, uppity place in Fort Lauderdale". With that, my personal tastes are very far from expensive, yet I like sushi- no, I love sushi- plus I refuse most places offering sushi because it is a very delicate food to prepare. Nonetheless, I ordered a lunch special with chicken teriyaki and tuna/white fish sashimi with three hamachi (yellowtail) nigiri. Let me say this: you can't really mess up chicken teriyaki, so it was great and I implore all to have it, but with sashimi the chef ended up putting a hair in one of my pieces and that is absurdly wrong. The yellowtail was sweet but not the best I've had.

    My wife and I ate at Asia Bay six years ago, during one of our many trips to Florida over the years. For this latest trip, we figured we'd revisit a couple of places that we'd been to in the past, and Asia Bay was one of those places. What a difference six years makes. A major reason why we returned was because we both had recollections of a wonderful meal/experience during our first visit. It was the opposite this time around. Our waiter was pretty lackluster and disconnected, and the rolls we ordered were fairly tasteless; we've had better sushi elsewhere. The gyoza tasted like ones you'd get in the frozen section of an Asian market. All in all, not worth the price paid, and I imagine there are better places in south FL.

    Came here 2 years ago on a recommendation and went back the following night it was so good. Back in the same region now and had to go back again. Was not disappointed, absolutely love the food. Alfred, our waiter, was very attentive, made sure we had everything we needed. The only complaint I have is that the sizeable portions left us unable to sample dessert this time. Loved sitting outside by the water, this place will be on my permanent list of dependable restaurants when in the area. Great menu with a wide variety to suit all and excellent value.

    Tempura appetizer was a little greasy rather than light and crisp. Pad Thai was fine and sushi (tuna lovers roll and unagi sashimi) were also good but I would go to TeeJays next time. More interesting choices at lower price.

    We had made reservations to Asia Bay mistaking it for another restaurant in the area. Well to much to our surprise, it turned out to be a hidden gem. We were seated quickly although our reservations were for much later. The service was unparalleled and the decor was elegant but not over the top. The food was amazing, after dinner we were great ed by the owner who asked if we had a pleasant dining experience. Needless to say, we congratulated him on his fine establishment. We look forward to returning again soon. Highly recommend to anyone.

    We were there for our daughters High School Graduation, she wanted to go to a place on Las Olas that had outdoor dining and Sushi so we chose Asia Bay. we had not been there before nor heard about the restaurant. What a great find!!! You will not be disappointed. Outdoor dining was wonderful! Service was fabulous! and food was superb! The only complaint was that the music was not good! Will definitely go back!

    I took my family here for dinner and we had a great time. We ordered a tempura appetizer, green salad, beer with ginger, tofu pad thai and a chicken curry dish. All the food was excellent. Tasty and nicely presented. Great service by Michael our waiter. He was on top of everything, friendly and took great care of us. I highly recommend Asia Bay as a great spot to eat on Las Olas.

    I visited Asia Bay on 4-6-2014. The food was excellent, our server Alfred was a delight and knew every aspect of the menu. This is a great, quiet spot for couples. If I had one point that could have put the experience over the top it would be that I noted it was my husband's birthday. When the hostess called to confirm our reservation she made mention of it. Unfortunately, there was no recognition during our dining experience. I did not expect anything free, just a Happy Birthday would have sufficed. The restaurant, service and food were wonderful!

    Wonderful for dinner (we go regularly), but definitely not a place for lunch on a workday if you want to get in and out within a reasonable period of time. We went over lunch hour, had a reservation so getting promptly seated was no problem, but the service was horrible. In fact, during the hour, all we were served were the appetizers. The main course did not arrive in that hour, so I was forced to have it packaged to go. Like I said, ridiculously bad lunch service. Food, as always, was great.

    Madera (sp?) our waitress offered the most professional, efficient and friendly service I have received in South Florida in quite awhile. We were very impressed with her knowledge and recommendations regarding the menu and specials for the evening. Food presentation was beautiful and the flavor / seasonings were great.

    Totally enjoyable Had the gyoza,rock shrimp,edamame,and Tuna rock w/ seaweed. starters -All outstanding. Main course PAd Thai is one of the best in South Florida The rolls - My fav was the Dream Roll, But the mexican was really good as well. Asked for an outside table on special requests and was accomodated with the best outside table Did not love the Sashimi but that was more because of the preparation. I prefer thinly sliced portions. Those served were generous cuts
