We introduced friends visiting
We introduced friends visiting from Singapore, who had eaten hotdogs, pizza and hamburgers the previous 4 days of their East Coast visit, so they were absolutely thrilled to be able to find pan-Asian cuisine that was not only a welcome diversion from standard tourist fare, but also almost quite as good as what they enjoy at home in Singapore. The wait staff were exceptionally attentive and the food was as delicious as always.

Loved the options at Asian
Loved the options at Asian Spice. We had spring rolls, edamame, Thai Basil Chicken, Pad Thai, Refugee Noodles, Thai Chicken Salad, and a sushi roll. Everything was wonderful! We will definitely be back and recommending Asian Spice to others.
Service was great as well---we were given a very thorough explanation of the menu.

Food was great but it took
Food was great but it took a long time to arrive. Those who ordered after us seemed to get their meals much more quickly. Would like to try again as it looks like a fun place to go with a group.

Wonderful Neighborhood Gem
The food was excellent here and quite a selection. The service is very fast, great if you want a nice lunch and need the food to come out quickly. Sat outside on a nice day, but the dining room has ambiance also if you decide to sit indoors. Also went to the bar one evening, great bartender! Creative drinks, reasonable prices. I also noticed that they have a sushi bar, which I want to try. Will definitely go back.

Great place for out of town guests.
First time I happened upon this Gem was on a Saturday evening w/friends after attending an event in Chinatown and was headed to OYA or Matchbox, but both are too loud and getting reservations or walk-in is difficult and they are not environments to enjoy conversations. I happily recommended this spot to celebrate a friend's birthday and returned with out of town guests.

Food was really good but mine was a little cold. Good food though and good sized portions as well.

The best way to hide a gem is to put it out in the open and blend in. Asian Spice does it well. Located 1 block from the busiest intersection in the area, in the heart of chinatown, a major tourist area, with a name like Asian Spice it looks like any other Chinese place. It is a gem and local favorite. The have an amazing happy hour, great lunch bento boxes, wonderful sushi, fantastic entrees. They also have cozy indoor seating, many near the large windows, or seating at the drink bar, seating at the sushi bar, and refreshing open air seating outsode under umbrellas. Staff is wonderful amd manager almost always visits each table to check on customers.

Spice is Nice
This was my first time at Asian Spice. My friend and I went specifically for the sushi...and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh, nice looking, and very tasty. We each had soup, as well...the serving size was fairly large and both choices were excellent. We will definitely go back and will recommend Asian Spice unhesitatingly.

Located by the DC China Town
Located by the DC China Town gate, their Panang Salmon and sauce were excellent. The lettuce wraps were great for two people, a little pricey, but worth it.

WONDERFUL. A nice surprise
WONDERFUL. A nice surprise - an Asian fusion restaurant with imagination and flair, as well as excellent execution. Try the Wasabi and bleu cheese crab rangoons!

Variety is the spice here
Best General Tso in all of DC, MD, and VA.... Found this gem after a game at the Verizon Center and have been coming back for great sushi, Lamb Kabobs, and drinks.

First time at this unassuming pan-Asian place in Chinatown. Wonderful fried calamari-some of the best I've had. Roast duck with noodles, tofu and mushroom curry, and outstanding Thai basil chicken, as spicy as I asked for. Long list of good beers. If you have trouble with stairs, do note that this restaurant is on several levels; ask for ground level seating.

Visit Asian Spice
Great food and friendly staff who are willing to help.

Asian spice is a great little restaurant. The food is tasty and consistent, and the service is attentive. The menu is a hodgepodge of various Asian cuisines, but every dish I've had here has been solid. The large menu accommodates many different tastes, which also makes this place a great go to for groups. I consider Asian Spice to be a reliable option for a low key dinner in Chinatown.

Had dinner there on a Wednesday evening. Therefore, the restaurant was fairly quiet. The food and wine was great.

the food is always very very good - good mix of entrees and quick service with friendly staff.

Excellent food - tricky stair case
I choose Asian Spice for an improptu meal with a friend who was in town randomly with his family. We booked a table for 6 with no problem. Everyone in our party adores different type of Asian food so there truly was something for everyone on the menu. I had pork and shrimp dumplings and the Omakase sushi platter. Both were excellent. Everyone was pleased with their meals. The only down side to the visit was that we were upstairs and the only way to get there was up a very steep spiral stair case. We had older folks with us and one fell down the last 3 steps as we were leaving because it's dim. Be very careful on the stairs! Otherwise, food is great, service was wonderful. We will be back.

Always a good meal.
This place never disappoints. The sushi is great and the entrees are reasonably priced.

Top quality asian dishes
We have returned several times. Each time, the food is outstanding. Highly recommend.

The sushi I had was great. The two other people I was with both had a duck dish and really enjoyed it. Friendly staff!
