    Too bad it was a bit cold that night. I would have appreciated if the plates had been heated before serving since we were stting outside. Noise level inside fairly high. Would go back on a warmer night and sit outside by the water again. Jacques

    We had a group of five, first time visit. We ordered Pad Thai Noodles to share, and a variety of Sushi Rolls. All of it was excellent. The "Dream Roll" in particular was so good, we ordered another one for dessert ! Service was also excellent. Overall a great dining experience.

    This is my favorite place for sushi. The Sushi Chef, Rex always makes amazing creations in addition to the fabulous ones already located on the menu. The staff has been extreme accommodating to our wishes each and every time we go. One of the main reasons my boyfriend and I chose to dine here is the outstanding treatment we received from the host, Marco. He goes above and beyond with service and although it's not "his job" you can find him assisting the servers as well to ensure that the customers have the best experience. Definitely go check this little gem out. Enjoy the wine, food, service and ambiance!

    Excellent food fresh and tastey. Great service. Probably the most expensive Thai food in Fort Lauderdale. Not surprised it was sparsely attended as it is Las Olas and the "season is over". Need to attract locals and coupons not enough.

    We were both pleasantly surprised with the food, service & ambiance. As early diners we had the place to ourselves. It was very nicely decorated. Menu was quite extensive for Sushi & Thai food. Food was very fresh & beautifully served. Portions were more than enough & we both took some of it home. I had Sushi Tempura combination & my friend had the Seafood Curry which we both really enjoyed. Being so early for dinner we had great service. However, when it filled up, the customers seemed to be well taken care of. The prices we moderate plus. Dinner for the two including three beers & entre came to $85.00 including gratuity.Only negative, the garage parking in the back.The signage a bit confusing & walkways needed cleaning and a facelift.

    nothing to write home about. i think lunch might be better just for the view; can't appreciate the watet at night. was seated immediately. food service took a very VERY long time. to the point that the server apologized a few times. husband has some kind of soup, said it was decent. we shared sushi, i want to say dynamite roll....perhaps. it was very good. i ordered one of the specials of the day, pineapple fried rice. fried rice with shrimp and lobster, a bit of spice, served in a hulled out pineapple. very pretty and tasted pretty good. husband had massaman chicken. it was good. no better than the cheap thai place we go to. we don't need to go back. can get same quality of food for less money.

    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.

    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!

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.
