A word from AZN Azian Cuizine
Bringing the true spirit of the Orient to your table means going to the sources— from the sparkling skyscrapers of Shanghai to the stimulating spiciness of Szechuan; from the bustling fresh fish markets of Japan to the steaming streets of Thailand; from the tangy tastes of Korea to the rich aromas of Hong Kong’s famed floating restaurants. Wherever genuine Asian flavors are found, AZN has gone there to bring them back to you, enlivened and elevated to new levels of culinary pleasure.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Nothing wrong with the food but nothing outstanding either. Service was very good, attentive, friendly. Prices was about right."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The suishi is just ok...small portions for the price and presentation could be better. We have eaten at azn many times it is not consistent. We have had amazing meals then not so good meals... the mercato is a great fun location to eat at. I prefer eating inside re car fumes and wind tunnel effect."

  • "We had Jeffrey as our server. I would recommend him to anyone! For someone who was in the restaurant business for over 10 yrs, he was as good as it gets! Great attitude, recommended other drinks and sushi, apologetic when we had a slight delay on getting drinks, just a true professional! We were greeted wonderfully by the host as well and as always made to feel comfortable and welcomed. As locals, we spend a lot of time at Mercato, and the food and service were worth the money!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "AZN is always my go to because I know I can get something healthy and gluten free on the menu. It's also one of the few places where you can make an open table reservation and actually get seated at the time you reserved. I had the pangang curry with chicken and asked for it extra spicy and it actually came out extra spicy."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "A couple of us were tempted at the descriptions of "baby back ribs" on the menu. After splitting two apps. We were getting full and all ordered app. size portions as mains. The baby back ribs were not as advertised - they were pork side ribs, and not very tender. Disappointing! Our server was excellent and we enjoyed the calamari and spicy shrimp bites."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Food was distasteful. Food was blahs. Service was slow . In the past we enjoyed eating there.... past few times food has been fair to poor."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We have been here many times, but the last 3 times the food has gone downhill. It went from great to average."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food is always good and the service is friendly! Great spot to eat prior to catching a movie!!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "AZN has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent and the service is very good. The noise level is also reasonable to still be able to talk. the tuna is excellent"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Always enjoy coming to AZN - great people watching in Mercato, good food, fun but still relaxing environment. It's always a bit loud, but that't the price you pay for the open, outdoor seating. Food is very good, fun asian fusion combinations."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "pleased with service and food. American Chinese cuizine"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Noisy, Fun, Great Diversity and Good Food. We were a party of eleven , young and old, and the food was enjoyed by all."

  • "We always brought our dog disappointed this is no longer allowed."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This is a great Asian fusion & sushi spot in a fun location! The food is both creative and tasty. There is something for everyone,"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Although we requested outdoor seating at the time of our Open Table reservation, we were told upon arrival there was a 20 minutes wait beyond our reservation time to get a table. Ceviche and sea bass were both excellent; however, fishbites and Calimari appetizers were both way over breaded."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Our food was good as always but I sure would love to sit outside some time without having to wait an additional half hour after we arrive with a reservation. I eat here often and bring guests but have never been able to snag an outside table, even with a reservation, whereas Tommy Bahama calls to confirm your reservation and asks you where you would like to sit until the patio seating is full. I am always stuck inside where, as the sun goes down, you are blinded if you face the door and it is dark and hard to see or read your menu, inside, until the sun goes down. Frustrating. They are really snippy about it at the hostess desk, too."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "ordered the sushi boat for two... the quality of the food was fantastic, the presentation was a little "over the top"... but made for fun comments regarding the literal "boat" during mealtime. ambiance was pleasant, sat indoors within some privacy while the outdoor dining area seemed crowded... the worst part of a wonderful evening (and first date), was the table. in no way was it stable. which had us wondering if the rocking table was to give a sense of realism to the boat our food was served on. service was decent, though not as attentive as one would expect for the cost of the meal. fantastic sushi can be had elsewhere for less, which would suggest the price would be justified by something more than just good tasting food..."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "On Wednesday evening, March 12, we took our out of town visitors, a group of 9, to AZN....and could not have been more disappointed. The service was so slow (at 5 pm); the food was not good (and we like Asian food); the wait for our food was over an hour. Then one half hour after eating, my son in law broke out in hives! He continued to break out after going to bed and at 12 midnight, we had to go to the emergency room for an IV and medication. As I said, we all like Asian food and have eaten it for years. Our son in law is 50 and has never had a reaction to any food in his life. Entire evening was a disappointment!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Four of us went for sushi, and knew pretty much what we wanted. My wife asked for a recommendation from the waiter, and was thrilled with his selection. Food was fresh and tasty. Not enough spice to overpower fish. Nice vibe and active outdoor cafe."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We have been here several times. Never disappoints!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Love dining at AzN. The food is always great. Service can be slow when they are busy, but I think of it as a dining experience. The pad thai is the best! The schuwan green beans with either shrimp or chicken is also a great choice. The restaurant is beautiful inside. Dining outside is also great. The happy hour at the bar and patio are also a great option. We always stop by for a glass if wine either before or after the movies upstairs . This restaurant is at the top of our list when we come down from Michigan. Please save room for the apple on the dessert menu. You won't be disappointed!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "If you have never eaten here; You Should! The food is wonderful with large portions. Make reservations early in season, it gets busy"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I was impressed by their extensive menu. Something for everyone!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Have been dining here for a few years now and have never been unhappy or disappointed. The food and service is always consistently good."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "I shared a calamari appetizer with a friend that was decidedly over breaded, undercooked and greasy. The roll on the daily special menu was so big that the slices could not be picked up with chop sticks without it falling apart. The rice was also overcooked and the whole affair pretty tasteless but looked nicely presented. I guess I should not be surprised with the place being right in the middle of this hopping district. My advice, enjoy the scene and surroundings when you sit outside and just don't expect a real good meal. I would not see any reason to sit inside and eat. If you want a real good Asian meal, go elsewhere."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Our waiter was very nice. Maybe too confident. He forgot to check if we had silverware but he did make sure we had drinks lol. But overall decent"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Great visit to AZN. Sat outside which is great for people watching. Service was excellent. Had my favorite Walnut Shrimp and it was delicicious. Best outdoor dining in Mercato."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We were looking forward to enjoying a meal at AZN. In the recent past, we were unable to be seated without a reservation. This time, with a reservation, the restaurant was not especially busy. After our appetizers, the entrees took almost one hour to be served. This was after our server & the manager said they were checking on our order. The entrees were only fair, overcooked & not near as flavorful as we expected. The Pad Thai was awful. We did not feel our meal was worth the $60 price. Oh well, now we know!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We visit often for lunch but had dinner there with out of town friends. Everything was very good. Great sushi. Good service. Good drinks. I would and have recommended AZN to others."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "The food is very good and always consistant! Everything we have ever ordered from appitizers to entrees are all outstanding! Just a Great restaurant all around :)"

  • "Service by Lisa was great. Entrees were very good. Would have given very good for food but steamed dumplings appetizer were cold and only so so. Could have gotten more but didn't want to wait."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Our Happy Hour drinks were very good - well made and not stingy. Outdoors was great for the drinks. Heaters were not turned on so we moved inside for dinner. All of our dinners - especially the walnut shrimp - were well made and tasty. Service was perfect."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "A pan-Asian menu that attempts much while not fully succeeding in delivering either taste or variety. The increasingly vibrant Mercado mall helps to bring-in the traffic, which, depending on one' s inclinations, either boosts the ambience or drowns-out conversation. The sauces thankfully accompanying the selections instead of being mix-in, tend toward the decidedly spicy or overly exotic. For those well-experienced in such cuisine it may succeed, but for many it may well be a one-time experiment."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "It was a regular Tuesday night & the place was jammed with full tables. We sat outside near the sidewalk but it was fine. The food was delicious & well presented. Our server was good getting all drinks, salads & main courses delivered timely but never rushed. We had a very nice dinner and evening at AZN. I would recommend this place for foodies but be sure to make reservations any time you want to go. They are needed!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Food quality was excellent. However the service quality was inconsistent as the party next to us received cocktails and appetizers before waitstaff visited our table. That said once food was finally ordered quality was very good for this type of restaurant not the culinary experience of Jean Georges but above average quality for restaurants in a similar price range. Portions were full without being excessive. A perfect spot for dinner after a movie at the theater above or at the end of shopping."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We always enjoy the food, it's fresh and delicious. We have always dined outside on the patio but this time we made a reservation with Open Table, and were seated inside. Much too noisy! We'll just wait in line for a table outside next time, the dining experience is much nicer in the outside portion because of the noise inside. Could not even have a conversation. I wish we could make a reservation with Open Table and request an outside table!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Edamame was a bit salty but manager brought us a totally new order with way less salt. All other dishes were tasty but not good for someone watching their salt intake."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We have been to AZN several times and the food has always been excellent. We had our favorites dishes of Shrimp Tempera with Vegetables and Chicken with String Beans. We weren't disappointed. We have had other appetizers and entrees on different occasions that were just as good. Whenever we are in town we always try to eat at AZN."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "food is always good, and location and overall ambience is very inviting"
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "Food was adequate but if you can't get a table on the patio take a pass and pick one of the many other restaurants in the Mercato. There were 5 of us and at best you could hear the person right next to you. Thought the martini size was a but skimpy also. Probably won't be back."
