Sushi was excellent. Very good service as well.
18 Asian is one of our favorite places to eat. My kids love the food as much as we do. My youngest was celebrating his birthday and picked this favorite restaurant to go to. Our service as always was great.
I love this restaurant and come as often as possible. The service is fantastic and food is INCREDIBLE. So yummy!! And great for casual or fancy date.
Best sushi around and the entrees were on point too. The waitress was super sweet and friendly. We will be back!
Never have had a bad meal there. Not only is the food look like art but it’s also delicious. Staff is always friendly and attentive. One of our favorite places to go.
We love 18 Asian food-wise. Some of the best sushi in the Charlotte area. The only time we have what I would call great service is when we have eaten at the bar. The service at the tables has never been great. I know my wife’s food wasn’t ready yet, but I saw my sushi get sat on the bar for the server and no kidding, sat there for 10 to 15 minutes while servers kept moving it out of their way to get to their drinks for guests. They could have at least kept it somewhere cool or away from all the people that kept touching my plate until my wife’s food was ready.
Great experience and the food was good also.
Mark is the absolute best bartender out there! He makes 18 Asian seem like family.
Mark makes 18 Asian a weekly event for date night! Great food a the best bartender!
Food and Service was great. Tyler was our server and was attentive and friendly.
Hanging out with a friend
We love the sushi here and keep returning for it. So many great rolls to choose from that it's always hard to pick. The service has been slow in the past, but we had a good experience during this visit.
We were celebrating my birthday! We had such a wonderful time. This has to be the best sushi anywhere! It is by far our favorite place for sushi! Staff is very attentive but not overly attentive. We absolutely love this place.
The food was OK, probably would have been better if the waiter didn’t mess up 3 of our 6 orders.
Asian 18 has been a favorite since they opened. The staff is always friendly & the food, whether it's sushi or cooked, is always fabulous. Would highly recommend.
Service a little slow
We didnt know this place existed, but we will definitely go back. The food, cocktails and service were excellent.
Best sushi in the Ballantyne/Blakeney area. Generally good service unless restaurant is really crowded.
Took about 15 minutes to get the first serving- soup. And the soup was lukewarm. Nowhere near hot. That means it sat a while before being served.
Always great food and service. Friendly comfortable atmosphere . Have a terrific bar and sushi too!
Service very slow. Don't bother making reservations. They'll never seat you on time.
Always great food and great service
Great Food every time - Really happy with our experience
I used Open Table for my reservation but didn't get credit for it. Can you help
Food and service is great. Always question what behind the scenes of a restaurant are based on the bathroom. The toilet scrub is brown and gross and bathroom was dirty. May take a break for awhile.
Service was extremely slow and the food was average at best.
Variety of special rolls and small plates noticeably not the "cookie cutter" Asian food spot in town. Definitely will return.
Go to place for local sushi
Overall the food was fantastic and we had a great waitress. It took too long to get our food but that is the only complaint.
Meh. Not impressed and won't be returning anytime soon!
Mark is one of the best bartenders! He makes the bar the best seat in the house.
This is by far our favorite Sushi Bar! Great food!
We made an early reservation so we could get good seating. Had a wonderful meal and noticed on the way out, there were NO empty seats! People of all ages enjoying themselves!
18 Asian used to be better. I ordered 3-different rolls, and they all looked and tasted the same. And the size of the nigiri used to be larger pieces of fish. It isn't bad, but it used to be better.
The food and service is fantastic! What a great hidden gem
Food was great!!!! The noise level was unnerving and disruptive. Thankfully we had a layer reservation so people started lwaving, but until that point about 45-60 min after arriving, I could finally speak to my husband without shouting.
Unfortunately we were unable to dine here. We had a 2:15 pm reservation and arrived at 2:17 due to traffic. We were told that the hostess and half the cook staff had already left for the day and that even though they continue to serve until 3:00, their last seating was 2:15 and even though we had a reservation they refused to seat us. Not sure if we will be back.
I had a confirmed 9:30PM reservation. We arrived at 9:15PM and they would not seat use. They said they close at 9:30.
When I booked the reservation, there was availability at 9:30 and 9:45.
The manager was not at all interested in remedying the mistake. All she said was I will change the time we close on opentable.
We will not be visiting this restaurant again.
You'd think they'd want to keep patrons that has dined there multiple times over the past year.
We had a nice dinner with sushi, sashimi, rolls, tempura. Everything was presented well. The rolls are too big, too much rice. The fish was fresh and good. Friendly service. Would go back.
