A word from The Asian Cajun
How the #%@! do you get Asian and Cajun cooking in the same building? You grow up on the Gulf Coast - or to some of you, the Dirty South - that's how. The Asian Cajun is started by 3 brothers-in-law, ABC Tony, Peck Sidara, and John Biloxi. One of them grew up in Mississippi. Can you guess which one? The 3 fellas married 3 sisters, but that was not all they had in common. They also shared a love for the same food. They've had many crawfish boils and barbeques together and decided it was time to start a restaurant. The Asian Cajun is not fusion cooking, but rather the best of both styles. Think of Boiled Louisiana Crawfish, Fried Seafood, and Gumbo. Also think of Cua Rang Muoi, Bo Tai Chanh, and Pho. That's right...pho!Continued

The Asian Cajun reviews from OpenTable diners
- The food here was amazing,OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/29/2013The food here was amazing, I love the crawfish and the pho noodles. The service was great, my food did not take long and the waiters were great at making sure my needs were met. Will recommend this place to others.Special Features:
- Hidden Gem. Out of the wayOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/23/2013Hidden Gem. Out of the way place, very pleasantly surprised. Word Cajun truly applies, real deal, no doubt owners from south. Key Point: Asian influence: Concentration on Fresh/Live Seafood. Makes all the difference. In the Seafood business and from the south, will be back. Drawback: restaurant was poorly heated. That said, quality of food and service made up for this shortcoming.
- The cajun food stood up toOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 3/6/2013The cajun food stood up to and in some cases surpassed New Orleans fare! Our waiter was part of the family that owns the place and it was nice to speak with him about their passions and how it came to be.Special Features:
- This was our second visitOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 2/15/2013This was our second visit and it wasn't as good as the first. I ordered a vodka martini on the rocks. They delivered an appletini. When the restaurant discovwered it's mistake they replaced the drink free of charge. With what though I have no idea as id did not taste or smell like a vodka martinin to me. The blue crab was gritty and the crawfish had way too much butter. The boiled shrimp were so-so. I don't think we're going back - we'll go to Yabby Hut for cerawfish and blue crab from now on.
- Awesome Name, Awesome RestaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/9/2013Awesome combination of Cajun and Asian. Went there because of the name, we ordered a healthy combination of both Cajun and Asian food. I recommend getting the wings with the pineapple sweet chili spot. It will probably take a few visits to get through the eclectic menu but what I have had so far has been delicious.Special Features:
- Unique concept - excellent food!!ErinDined on 1/31/2013EXCELLENT! My husband had a shrimp po boy and I had the beef noodle bowl. Both were absolutely delicious and we highly recommend this restaurant! We loved that its family owned and has a laid back atmosphere. The staff was wonderful! We'll definitely be back!Special Features:
- Awesome Asian Cajun Combo foodchelsDined on 1/29/2013This place is fun! This is not a fancy joint, but its awesome. The food was delicious and i am a foodie. I have tried the asian side and the cajun side and i was impressed with both. the crawfish had great flavor and tasted very fresh. the portion of crawfish was a bit smaller than expected to me with being from the south. but i think everyone else at the table was just fine with the amount they received. The fried alligator and soft shell crab were big hits at our table as well. I had not had fried alligator before and loved it! I recommend searching this place out. Fun joint for a friday night group date.Special Features:

- The Asian Cajun was a funOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 11/9/2012The Asian Cajun was a fun restaurant and I plan to return. The food is great. The atmosphere is casual. The staff was friendly and attentive.
- Different in a good wayOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/7/2012You may feel like you're dining at Long John Silvers... Until the food (and beer) arrives. My husband and I ate here on a Sunday night. It was pretty empty, except for a full bar watching the saints game. The game crowd was pretty noisy, but fun, and took nothing away from an already laid back atmosphere. The food is amazing. Sharing a few appetizers and a seafood boil is the way to go. The apps are tasty and affordable (even the oysters!) and the seafood boil was to die for. We had the king crab with Asian Cajun sauce, which I highly recommend: Spicy, sweet and affordable, with just a little more work than you're used to on a night out.Special Features:
- Based on one visit by twoOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/6/2012Based on one visit by two diners, I think the Asian Cajun does an amazing job of serving fresh seafood at a very low price. That's hard to do in landlocked Denver. Our blackened catfish and fried oysters were delicious and a great value. A shredded papaya salad was indifferent, however, lacking the fresh herbs that normally spark a Thai salad, and the dressing needed some lime juice. Server was friendly and attentive, and brought us some limes quickly when we asked. We will definitely return, even though it is far away for us.Special Features:
- Good Food, Good ValueFrogDined on 5/13/2012As a native Louisianian, I take my Cajun food seriously. The Asian Cajun delivers good Cajun food at fair prices. We did not order any of the Asian food, but from the number of Asian customers, I guess that it is also good. I will definately go back for the French fries which were among the best in town. This kitchen really knows how to correctly fry food, from the oysters to the fish. Good job!Special Features:
- Hot cajun Crawfish!RTFFDined on 4/1/2012This place is awesome. Only place in CO that makes a crawfish hot enough to make me cry a bit!Special Features:
