The food is always good - we love the egg rolls and tried a new plate with tofu which was excellent. You can pretty much guarantee a excellent meal every single time. It was extremely cold out and it was definitely worth the trip for excellent food. The waiters are friendly, warm and on top of everything.

The service is always slow. The last two times I’ve been in there, the waiters have been slow to come to the table. And there weren’t a lot of customers in there.

This was my second visit and neither of us were voraciously hungry so we ordered two different appetizer assortments which duplicated some of the same items. Since it was a Friday in Lent we shared the meatless items and took the meat items home. Some of the items were Things wouldn’t have ordered on their own but EVERYTHING was excellent, that night and the next day. There was nothing I would want to exclude in the future, except I’m eager to try more of their offerings, including some very interesting mixed drink offerings.

Food was awesome! Super happy with all the amazing vegan options. The vegan spring rolls where crunchy on the outside and hot and soft on the inside and to go with it the dipping sauce paired perfectly. For my main course I got the spicy tofu vegan soup and that was phenomenal! The soup was fill with lots of veggies and huge noodles. The flavor was outstanding with enough kick to make my nose run by the time I finished. Overall dining experience 8.7/10

I have ordered from here tons of times and it's always been great but when I took my friend to actually sit down in the restaurant for her birthday, the service wasn't too great. About halfway through our meal we were basically ignored and we had to ask twice to get our checks and they were incorrect. I'm not sure if that's a normal thing but it was embarrassing to have to wait for so long just to pay after I talked up the place so much.

Another great experience at Asian Outpost.
Love the ambiance and large booths! Also, the food is amazing!

The only reason why service did not get 5 stars is that our food came out at different times. The waitress did make up for it by giving me a free drink and my boyfriend a free dessert. The sushi is fresh and delicious and my boyfriend's Mongolian Beef had the right amount of spice and tons of beef!

The food was okay at best. The egg roll seemed like it was from CostCo. The sushi was not great. They had a lot of different foods to choose from, jack of all trades but master of none. I would not go back.

The service was great and the staff was friendly. Very nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, we didn't like the food very much -- the two savory dishes we had were too sweet, almost goopy, and the first glasses of water we ordered smelled mildly of fish. We wanted to like the place, but the food really wasn't good.

Very yummy food. Good drinks. Asian with a little Hawaiian and Southern mixed in. Crab po boy was quite fun and tasty and pad see ew didn't disappoint - steamy and flavorful with bits of beef and shaved asparagus. Comfort food! Service was very attentive and the atmosphere was sort of eclectic and funky.

We won't be back. Bad experience. 5 white wines by glass but only 1 red wine - why? Appetizers ok nothing special. Edamame had so much salt -and I love salt - that we had to wipe off the salt. Both got fried rice entrees and both were soggy. Not good at all I ate two bites. Bummer

Really cool, interesting decor. Food was excellent especially the Miso soup and little cornbread muffins. The seaweed salad was very good, but a bit spicer than what I prefer, but it wouldn't stop me from ordering again. My friend ordered a vegetable noodle dish that she really liked. Interesting menu is comprised of dishs from several Asian countries: Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam and more.... No MSG and GF options. Can't wait to go back again and try other dishes.

I will definitely return and try more menu items. Mixed drinks were tasty too.

The food was exquisite, and the presentation was spectacular! Our server answered all of our questions on the ingredients in the Poke and other food recommendations. The mixologist was also very accommodating in recommending and making special cocktails for our group. Our group will definitely return in the near future for another great dining experience.
