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.

    I love Chinese food and have been eating it all over the country for the past 75 years. I don't profess to be a "maven" on the subject, but I know what I like. There has not been a good Chinese food restaurant here in Naples since the Pavilion went out years ago. About three weeks ago we went to the Azian for dinner to try it out. W went back again last night and the food was great both times. The server was great.

    Everything was amazing, all food you can tell is the freshest told they do really have daily deliveries, fish flied in fresh from japan, cant get sushi any fresher. Geo the sushi chef makes you feel special and his only guest. Service was on top of everything.

    We love AZN and have eaten here many times. The food is incredible our only minor complaint would be once you have eaten your meal, it seems difficult to find your waiter waitress. Refills on your coffee or just getting your bill, we often have to chase them down. But other than that this is a great, great restaurant.

    Azn is a much better find for lunch. I always ask for Monica as my server because she is fabulous in remembering my likes n dislikes. As for dinner, bring a book to read while waiting for your food. Service is very slow. I also got items on my plate that I didn't order. As I said service was so slow that I just accepted my plate cause I didn't have another 45 min to wait.

    We had our first dinner at AZN after enjoying a delicious salad with shrimp and avocado there previously. We had hoped to ssit outside but weren't able to due to extremely windy conditions but dining inside was quiet and the booth was comfortable. Marisol gave us very attentive service and our Caesar salad was a dellicious light take on the heavy classic. Snapper with crab was very good, too, with generous portions. The summer menu with three differnt price options was a good value. Convenient location in Mercato is a plus.

  • Happy Hour
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 5/14/2014
    We have dined in the restaurant before inside for entrees. This visit we specifically went for happy hour and appetizers and dined outside. Happy Hour lasts until 6pm. At 550 we ordered a second round of drinks and were told we were going to have to pay full price as the manager changes the computers at 10 minutes till 6 and happy hour was over. The waiter was not budging on the subject. I feel this practice is unethical as if the menu states happy hour ends at 6 it should end at 6. Most other establishments will ask you if you want another drink before happy hour ends and often will extend the time a bit. I was very unimpressed and now have an idea why this place which is an a very busy urban setting often has empty seats.

    After talking to friends about AZN, we decided that wasn't enough. I made a reservation for Friday evening for four. Our waiter was attentive, the food, as always outstanding. Everyone in our party had something different so we could taste at least four things on the menu. Delicious… It is a bit of a drive for us but so worth the trip. We have made AZN fans out of our friends also. Keep up the good work. I give this restaurant a perfect score of "10"

    My husband and I went to an early dinner with friends before we caught a movie. The server was very conscientious of our time and was aware we were on a schedule. We started with some "fun" drinks as we call them and they were delicious. We has the calamari app which was good but the sauce was dynamite. The sauce was amazing (i could keep going on about the sauce). I had the lo mein but only had shrimp an my husband had the ahi tuna. The tuna was really really good. The lo mein was a bit salty. It was good but after a while I couldn't keep eating it because it was so salty. Our friends enjoyed their seabass entrees. We have been here before and I know we will be back again.

    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!

    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.

    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.
