Diner Reviews
  • "I love the decorum-very relaxed the food and service was excellent for lunch time dining. I will return again."

  • "My girlfriend and I were in the mood for asian food after a lecture on the Mekong River at the Smithsonian and seeing "Lucy" (partially set in Taiwan). She goofed ordering from the sushi menu, being so intent on avoiding eel that she didn't notice that two her three selections were raw, which she dislikes. I played it safe with the gyoza (pork potstickers) and Vietnamese beef noodle soup. The starter was very tasty, but the soup was dull. I got a couple nicely spicy Thai cocktails while she was disappointed because her lychee martini only included one nut. We will return to Asia Nine, but order more carefully."

  • "I've been to Asia Nine several times and enjoyed the food and found the service to be friendly and prompt. On July29, however, the restaurant was crowded and the staff overwhelmed. I waited nearly an hour for two sushi rolls. Not only was the wait excessive, but the staff, including the manager, was unapologetic. At one point the waitress asked if I wanted to cancel the order entirely. When we complained about the delay, the waitress told us that asking to see the manager would not have any impact on the speed of the order (and his attitude suggested she was right). While the food was ultimately of its usual quality, the unapologetic response to an unreasonable delay suggests one does not eat at Asia Nine on a busy day."

  • "We love Asian food and were excited when we walked inside since it was nicely decorated. The sushi roll had so much sauce you couldn't tell how many pieces were in it. A dish that was suppose to be served flaming, wasn't because the lighter wasn't working so the waiter gave up. The udon soup was not seasoned. Service was slow; our drinks were usually empty. Over all, we were not impressed."

  • "Brought my parents and cousins here for dinner on Saturday 7/26. Good food overall, except that the fish we ordered was supposed to have been seared, but it came to the table fried. The chicken satay was good, but could have been cooked with a little more spices - but the peanut sauce made it all better. The pad thai noodles were really good, the garden rolls and the papaya salad were all delicious! Our server was very good. She was very attentive, and always made sure we had enough water and that our food was cooked to our needs. I have eaten here several times, and it is definitely some of the better Asian food I have had in DC."

  • "Nothing special. Wide variety of Asian cuisines. Food is good, not great."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Went here for dinner and was seated outside. The drink selection was pretty diverse. We wanted to order the mussels but they were unavailable (suppose better than not having good ones!). We ended up ordering the curry puffs which were pretty good. We got one of the noodle bowls and a salad. The salad was pretty good. The noodle bowl had a very nice broth. The chicken was a little over poached but still pretty good. Would return for another dinner."

  • "I had lunch, then dinner a day later at Asia nine. The lunch menu is much better. The food I good whenever, but there's a much broader selection for lunch. Enjoyed it both times, though."

  • "Friends and I went here on a double date on a Saturday night. It was a nice atmosphere, but seemed like they had some pending rennovations going on. There was a carpet industrial fan blowing in the backround, but never the less very romantic setting. The food was amazing, we got the dynamite roll among others, and were very impressed. All of the small plates and drink menu was extensive. Will return! Our server was really nice, and accommodating, we were the last ones here. (Made our reservation for 10 pm, and their kitchen closes promptly at 10:30 on Saturdays, so we were a little rushed. There is a bar, but that closes as well at 11, do an early dinner here and then hop to a bar/ lounge if you are looking to continue the night."

  • "I have been to this restaurant with a group of people a couple of years ago and I was lukewarm about Asia Nine at the time. Last night, we a totally different experience. The sushi was incredibly fresh and flavorful. Our out of town guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves."

  • "This is my favorite place to eat. The best Mai Tai's on the planet."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The food is always good particularly the Sushi. Service is good and prices are good for the area."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We stumbled across this restaurant when looking for sushi in D.C. The food was outstanding and has become our favorite sushi restaurant in D.C., and the service was great! The server was always attentive and friendly, without interrupting the table and our conversation. We will definitely be returning!"

  • "We have gone to Asia Nine many times. No more. The food is ok. The sushi is not great but will pass. Service is good. Convenient place to go before or after the E Street Cinema. What broke our camel's back was for the second time in a year Asia Nine cancelled our Opentable reservation after we had eaten dinner there. When I asked them about it, they said it was a mistake that could not be fixed. Something smells in the State of E Street, and it's not the fish. I suspect they save whatever they pay to Opentable by doing that. Like to know if others have experienced this "mistake.""

  • "Good place for a business lunch. A wide variety of selections. Service was good but not overpowering so we were able to discuss matters without interruptions. All the food arrived hot and fresh."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Asia Nine is an outstanding experience for those who enjoy Asian fusion cuisine. They have a solid wine list to accompany their wonderful combination of appetizers and full courses. Combining the sushi menu with a wide range of appetizers is a perfect idea for large groups dining in. "

  • "We reserved a table for Dining Out For Life. Service was prompt; food was quite good. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "You can customize your sushi rolls with a number of special additives, like crunchies, avocado, cucumber, etc. The rolls were amazing!! Tuna tartar was also very very good! So were the ravioli. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Age Tofu was probably the worse I've had. My meal arrived about 20 minutes after my friends. It was't that great and six hours later, my stomach is starting to hurt. I deeply regret eating here."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It felt like the waitress was deliberately ignoring our group. It took 30 minutes to get our check."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Waiter kept forgetting we were there, never took a drink order and food was not too memorable (did not have sushi). On top of that, the draft from the open door made eating uncomfortably cold and the staff did not seem to notice that everyone was uncomfortable!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Poor service, food just OK. Took 10 minutes to be asked for our drink order - and the restaurant was half empty at 6:15 on a Thursday. Glass of wine took over 20 minutes and came after our appetizers were delivered. And getting the wine took me getting out of my chair and chasing down the server to figure out the problem. Also had to get up and get my own chopsticks because the server was nowhere to be found. I knew where the chopsticks were because the diners right next to us did the same thing. Chicken satay appetizer was overcooked and dry. The steamed dumplings were decent and the duck roll OK. Meal was better, the lemon grass chicken and thai soup. Would not go back."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "If you chose this restaurant, please call to double-check the reservation. Although our reservation was accepted, when we got there the restaurant was closed!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I sometimes get Asia Nine and Asia Spice (two Asian fusion restaurants in the same part of DC) mixed up. So, I went to both of them for dinner within a relatively short time period. Asia Nine is definitely better - more interesting menu, better, food, nicer environment. However, even with that, I found Asia Nine to be only good - a solid "B" if I were assigning grades, but nothing higher. None of the food was bad, but none of it was great either."

  • "Located near Ford's Theater we figured we would try this place after a tour rather than a burger. My 10 yr old is now eating some sushi. He ordered shrimp Tempura sushi and cucumber sushi. Very pretty and attentive staff. He loved his food and gobbled up the sushi. Afterward I told him what the extra sauce was, eel, he liked it. Waiter did recommend meat/mozerella spring roll to start, not worth it. Our seaweed salad had an additional sauce on it, unnecessary and made the level of saltiness over the top. I ordered one of their special sushi, it was spicy tuna with cucumber and other things I can't remember. The wrap was pale pink with green eggs on top, and kind of dry."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We love Asia Nine because the food is great AND the restaurant staff is always super flexible and accommodating. I've only ever loved the food I've had here, it's usually easy to get a reservation, pretty quick to get in and out if you're catching a movie or something else, and the staff are pleasant and adaptable."

  • "Love the setting, the variety of food, the presentation - it's a super place!"

  • "Excellent service, great variety of food, nicely prepared. Was there pre-theatre and they were perfect."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We both had the teriyaki dishes, beef for me and chicken for her. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The calamari appetizer was excellent! This is my 4th visit their and I'll go again. The server was not very attentive but we didn't need much."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Not only were the items we ordered tasty, the portions were quite generous in size - even though we shared them between two people, there was still enough to take home. As this was my first visit, I will definitely like to return to try other dishes and linger longer."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The restaurant had moderate service, but an exceptional offering of Sushi, wines, sakes, and spirits. The sushi was prepared well, and also the Sake Shooter that gives you a taste of many different sakes was even greater. Although for a moderate price, I would come back again for the enjoyable food and menu options."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "they had a lot of sake options, including a tasting flight of 5 unusual types. sushi and sashimi combos were fresh and tasty, good value too. service was attentive and friendly."

  • "I have tried several dishes on the menu and everything is Delicious! The wait staff is also super friendly."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "We have always had an excellent dining experience at Asia Nine in the past. However, this is the first time that it seemed to take forever to get our food. Some diners who arrived after us received their food first. After asking another waitress to send ours so that we could have her check on our food, was it finally delivered. Our waitress never came to check on us, and I had to ask another one to send ours so that we could pay for our meal. I don't know if they may have been short staffed that day or what. We will definitely return, but this was the first negative experience we've had at AN."

    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Good sushi, tough, overcooked chicken, awkward service. We were charged for an item we had not ordered and sent back, and then were reimbursed only the base cost, not the tax and tip on top of it -- a small amount but just one more example of subpar service."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "Food did not really have much flavor to it. Wonton soup tasted like beef broth and again, no outstanding flavor. Would not return."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "We were a party of 7 people, so when we ordered we told the server to bring the items AS THEY WERE MADE - not in one big boat. Guess which way they brought it??? One of our party spoke with the manager who apologized profusely, but made no concessions for us at all. We also found the prices to be WAY overpriced. The bill for 7 of us with one bottle of wine and one wine flight was over $450.00. Needless to say, I do not recommend this place. I guess this is why a reservation for seven people on a Saturday night was available on Thursday."
