- Nice eveningKatherineDined on 11/7/2014Our food was delicious. I got the cucumber crunch roll (one of my favorites) and the special roll of the night, and my partner ordered the diver scallops. Dessert was the banana beignets, which were great. Service was slow but otherwise no complaints.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hits the spotLoveNYCVIPDined on 11/4/2014Top notch Chinese and fusion food - charming service. Sushi rolls are fresh and inventive. Accommodating to modifications. One pet peeve - love that restaurants have jumped on the brussel sprout bandwagon, but please don't be lazy - need to cut off the stems! Don't leave that part to your patrons.Special Features:
- Always great here!MomentscaughtVIPDined on 10/25/2014Azie never disappoints us. The food is consistently excellent and we love the atmosphere too!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic MealSushiloverDined on 10/25/2014Quick service. Fantastic food. Rock shrimp and calamari appetizers were heavenly. Also the sushi special they had that particular night was so good. We will definitely be back.Special Features:
- a lil disappointingSakkiVIPDined on 10/25/2014This was a return visit for my husband, daughter, and I. While I was greatly looking forward to it, I was disappointed in my main entree. My husband and daughter had sushi and shashimi which they loved. I ordered the scallops which were a bit chewy. I generally order fish, especially the sea bass. I should have gone with that!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 10/18/2014Server rolled her eyes when asking for orange wedge since I have ciliac very sad gluten free menuSpecial Features:
- Excellent sushi!JnSEatsVIPDined on 10/12/2014I had heard good things, and was looking forward to our visit. We were seated in a booth, which was comfortable and cozy. We ordered the crunchy spicy tuna roll, which was awesome, chicken noodle soup, and a perfectly cooked miso sea bass. J enjoyed his seared tuna over mashed sweet potatoes. The service was pleasant, and not over solicitous. We will definitely be returning!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Thank you!cljdDined on 10/10/2014This has become our family go-to restaurant for special occasions. Something for everyone on the menu, and service is always wonderful.Special Features:
- Ok -but would rather go to MorimotojojokligVIPDined on 10/7/2014Azie service and food is slowly going downhill. We were there 10/7 to celebrate our son's birthday. Although we didn't stay for dessert, our server, Danielle, didn't even bring out a lit candle in a sushi roll. We're pretty much family regulars and have noticed many new faces and worse service of late. The Rock Shrimp, usually so tasty, was soggy and the sauce not as delicious as usual. My 13 year old noted the new absence of the endive which seems to now be with the orchid flower that USED to garnish this dish. We miss both very much and hope they bring them back and return to their old shrimp recipe. Everything else was "okay". Of Note: Our favorite manager,Ann, was not working that evening-might this have something to do with itSpecial Features:
- Always consistentRestaurantloverVIPDined on 9/29/2014We have eaten here several times. The food is consistently wonderful. Presentation is excellent and the ways the different flavors are fused makes up an amazing menu. Staff is well trained and knowledgable. The only thing that was a drawback this time was that we were seated alone in the main dining area on a slower night, because we had a larger party. The rest of the diners were in the bar area. It seemed like the waiter forgot about us several times while he was waiting on his other tables and couldn't see us. We had several long pauses between courses so that we were there over two hours. This wouldn't be a problem with a fine fining experience except, having fined here before, I know they are much more attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Azie for Sunday BrunchjoezbestVIPDined on 9/28/2014Very pleased with our brunch . Excellent food. Good selection and lots of choices. Saki flight was top shelf. Definitely will go back.Special Features:
- Great Sunday brunch spotOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/28/2014I have enjoyed Azie's Sunday brunch several times and the service and food quality is excellent. I would recommend Azie's to anyone who enjoys Asian cuisine, however they do offer American foods too thus there is something for everyone.Special Features:
- EhItalgalDined on 9/26/2014Lovely service, bar, interior and outdoor seating but for some reason I was disappointed this time. I always get the same thing- crab pad thai and for some reason was not crazy about the dish this time. Just sort of flavorless. Lacked the vibrance it usually has. Had to jazz it up myself with lime and sriracha. Outdoor area was lovely but seemed to be not enough servers - at least ours was rather hard to come by while inside looked deserted so had too much wait staff. Just sort of a weird night over all.Special Features:
- RitaRitaDined on 9/21/2014Wonderful Sunday brunch! Highly recommended.We especially like the omelet station and the wonderful shrimp!Special Features:
- Don't recommend the foodFlowerDined on 9/19/2014The bar looks great and the ambiance is good but they should do something about the food. Several people around us complained about their dish when we were there. Chicken I ordered was not cooked well.Special Features:
- Way off this night.NotThrilledVIPDined on 9/19/2014I'm not sure what happened. I've never been a huge fan of the restaurant, but the nail was put in the coffin Friday night. Service was extremely slow (the couple seated next to us left after waiting 25 minutes for water),after getting my entrée 65 mins after ordering, it was cold. Manager took my meal off the bill, but still, really bad all around experience. The table behind us never received food the birthday celebrant asked for.The maitre d' didn't pull my chair out, just dropped the menus on the table and left, the table on the other side of us wobbled, and when the couple pointed out the problem to the waiter, he just shook the table and walked away. For a meal that would have cost over $85 for 2 people, it was very disappointing.Special Features:
- mainlinesushiloverDined on 9/14/2014Yet another wonderful meal at Azie! Went with a large group to celebrate a few birthdays, and we all left full and very satisfied!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointingrm59VIPDined on 9/12/2014The restaurant was mostly empty so there was zero atmosphere, our server had an odd demeanor about him and made us feel uncomfortable, the food was mediocre; overall it was terrible for a date night, a waste of time and money. Disappointing because the restaurant decor was beautiful but they simply weren't able to fill it up with people.
- Great Place!!JC7FashionDined on 9/4/2014I think Azie on Main is a really great place! Love the atmosphere! It's just a shame that such a nice place is tucked back into a small shopping center with no visibility. It reminds me of a trendy restaurant that you would see downtown in Center City with it's atmosphere and Asian flare. I really enjoy the food and would definitely go back again, I just wish it was a bit more lively as a friend I dined on a Thursday evening and the place was pretty much dead, and being in a college town I would have expected it to be packed, but again I think the location has a lot to do with it. The first time I went it seemed pretty crowded but I think some kind of event was going on. I think they just need to publicize and get the word out more.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 9/4/2014happy hour sushi is good. Need more cocktails at happy hour prices Waiter got flustered and lost track of our table.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- didn't live up to my expectationsluvzchocolateDined on 8/29/2014I had heard many good things about Azie. It was odd.....some dishes were delicious....others were so-so. The oddest thing was that we were served entrees while we were still eating appetizers....The waitstaff just pushed our appetizer plates aside while we were still eating them and put the entrees down in front of us. We were surrounded by a 'feast' of dishes.....and no where to eat comfortably. It was poor pacing of service which made the dinner odd. We were disappointed.
- Excellent Asian foodvillanovamumDined on 8/23/2014The atmosphere and food were very impressive. The prices very a bit high but value for money was good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Flowers13VIPDined on 8/20/2014Dining was enjoyable!! It was nice to sit outside! Staff was pleasant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service Has SlippedMainlinediningdadVIPDined on 8/15/2014While the food is as good as it has always been, the service is not up to par. Our server was slow and innattentive and at no time did a manager stop by the table to check on us. Azie used to have great service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Summer brunchmainlinesushiloverDined on 8/10/2014I've been to brunch at Azie before, but was pleasantly surprised to find they also have a patio for seating! My friends and I happily sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather. They also added an omelet bar at the buffet, and they'll cook it right in front of you! Best omelet I've ever had. Once again, Azie was wonderful!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- You-niquePTXCDined on 7/31/2014The fusion is apparent immediately. But the sushi was an immediate draw and did not disappoint. Leave a little room to share a decadent dessert.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- DisappointmentloislegsDined on 7/6/2014Azie had been recommended to me more than once as a great restaurant so I finally made my visit. I found the food about average, nothing extraordinary. Our server was inexperienced and seemed poorly trained.Special Features:

- Upscale Asian foodeclairewlDined on 6/27/2014In spite of living pretty far away, I have been to Azie on Main 5 or 6 times this year. Lunch is especially appealing with a fixed price menu. Their special sushi rolls are creative as is the rest of the menu. All of this comes with a somewhat-higher-than-average price, but it is worth it.Special Features:
- fabulous BrunchReadingGrrlDined on 6/22/2014I have eaten at Azie for brunch several times and it is always exceptional. I love that it is different than other brunch menus as well. The only thing that needs a bit of improving is the service for coffee and tea and any other drinks. It seems they often have too few waiters on staff to serve each table timely.Special Features:
- Great mealOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/21/2014Dined there for several great brunches and some nice dinners with family and friends. My wife also threw a bridal shower there for a friend's daughter which went extremely well. Food is very good to excellent, but service is good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
