A word from Ten Asian Bistro
Ten Asian Bistro & Bar is without a doubt, the most innovative and seductive dining experience in Asian Cuisine in Orange County. Upon arriving you will experience a beautiful double sided waterfall which you actually walk underneath to enter the venue. Once inside, you are greeted by a 14-foot Buddha that overlooks the beautiful main dining room. There are two patios complete with fire pits. The ambiance is ever changing due to the color kinetic lighting that changes the mood from one minute to the next. Aside from the ambiance the food is simply outstanding! There is a 28 foot sushi bar that seats up to 20 guests offering the best and freshest cuts in all of Orange County. The main menu offers American, Chinese and Thai dishes. The food is 5 star and a great place for large parties,sharing, and private events. Ten Nightclub is located directly next door and is open Friday and Saturday nights. Both venues are available for special events.

    Can't say enough good things about the service and management! This venue is very nice and the food is really great, but my group of 18 experienced such attentive, gracious service it really "made" the night. With Leo's guidance, I pre-selected a basic menu of appetizers, stir-fry, and sushi - something for the newbie to sushi as well as for my enthusiasts. It was a total hit! As folks arrived they could order a drink and enjoy the apps until everyone was there. Super customer service was exemplified with offer of a free dessert to everyone in the group. Will we be back? YES!

    Dined on 3/15/2014
    I have eaten here before for lunch and had fantastic sushi/ sashimi/ rolls. Our dinner: Dumplings, Shrimp Tempura, Chicken Pad Thai and General Ten's chicken. The dumplings were deep fried, when ordered we thought they were pan fried. These are not potstickers. The Shrimp Tempura was fantastic. The Pad Thai was spicy (good) but was watery and not flavorful. The General Ten's chicken was dry and more like a bowl of boneless buffalo chicken pieces. Ten has a new menu- no lettuce cups or fire cracker shrimp. It was 8pm- the "noise" from the club was very distracting. Very accommodating and friendly staff. With tip and no alcohol, the bill came to just under 90$. Not likely to come back. Sam Woo's made up for this disappointment the next day.

    Place is great, good place for friends. But during lunch time, the music is a little too loud to discuss anything serious. If you are trying to convey a message to more than one client/prospect, you are better off somewhere else. If you are trying to impress, its a great spot.

    I have been here a lot with my company for work dinners with a large group and for some reason both times they only gave a party of 20 one server! We had to open our own wine and pour it and when the bottle ran out it took forever to get another. The lunch was fine but the food took forever to come out.

    Arrived when the place was not full, maybe 5 other tables had people....placed our beverage order followed with ordering our lunch. Place started to fill up....other tables got food before ours and our waiter was all over the place except attending to our order. Don't know if understaffed because our waiter appeared to be attending to a table on the other side of the room or if the cooks were slow? No updates on status of food, no mgr to explain. Only when I voiced my complaint was something done. Party of 8....other table had a party of over 12 & they were eating while we were still waiting for our order. Not likely to return anytime soon...there are other restaurants that want my business more.

    I have always loved the food at TEN and had great service in the past. This visit was for a business lunch and the service was a disappointment. Our Server acted as if she was unhappy to be there, smiled very little and took forever to greet us. The edamame took 20 minutes. The empty plates piled up on our table and several servers never picked them up. Finally the manager took them---they were piled 5 high by then (we order a lot). This was a business lunch and my clients also commented on the poor service. The hostess neglected to record that we showed up for our reservation so I got an email from Open Table saying we no-showed! Not sure what was going on that day, it was not busy at all but they were asleep at the wheel.

    My boyfriend and I decided to take our lunch break at Ten (we've been here multiple times for dinner). Understandably, Noriene P (#521) had not only us to serve, but also a large group next to us (who did come in after we have been seated). However, the table next to us received their food instantly, while my boyfriend&I waited for 45 minutes. Both times when we asked the status on our food, she replied "The bento boxes will be right out." But they didnt.When our food finally arrived was she quickly apologized and acknowledged some confusion in the kitchen. Never once during the 45 minutes of waiting she asked if we wanted anything else, or if we wanted a refill. We rarely saw Noriene P, but we did see her constantly at the table next to us

    My boyfriend and I go to ten all the time and usually their service and food is excellent. We talked this place up to our friends and convinced them to come with us for new years eve. When we arrived for our reservation they didn't have a table ready for us they had to grab an extra table from the back and cram it in between some other tables. our drinks took forever to get since they didn't have enough bartenders working. After ordering off the prix fixe menu 45 mins went by and someone brings 2 entrees to our table that weren't ours ( we hadn't even gotten our appetizers yet) finally our appetizers come out all at different times. They also ran out of the desert choices. Not one person offered to fill our waters. Very disappointed!

    Service Saturday evening at Ten Asian Bistro was fair at best. The server neglected the table for approximately 30 minutes following seating and the ordering of two simple appetizers. The description of "fiery" for the spice level of several dishes was correct. I generally like spicy food but this was a little more than I expected, and hence I did not enjoy the entry. Overall Ten Asian Bistro is loud with ordinary food.

    Just make sure you insist on separate billing if you have a large group. Our female waitress was a mess with our bill so it kind of ruined the flow of the evening which had gone so well! Otherwise the vibe of the place was perfect, the rest of the staff was amazing and did a great job keeping our party fed and drinks filled...the music was great. Thursday nights are awesome because the restaurant converts to a dance floor which is awesome!!! definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a place to hang and eat and then dance on a Thursday night.

The food was defintiely fabulous and the waitress tried her hardest but was the only server for all of the tables, yet there were 5 different busboys scrambling around to take our plates.
