About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Asian Rim Birmingham was the winner of Birmingham's "Best New Restaurant for 2012" as awarded by BirminghamRestaurants.com. This distinction was ignited with the creative menu development by a team of Seattle, WA chefs capturing the made-from-scratch cravable flavor profiles and a diverse menu where Foodies flock for their culinary pleasures. Aside from their Signature Sushi, the Rim offers a culinary fusion of authentic Thai and Pan-Asian cuisine. The Wave (Bar) is high energy & features the perfect "Southern Hospitality" atmosphere while the "Outer Rim" (outdoor seating) is a great retreat to just chill and visit with friends. The Rim is opened 7 days for both lunch & dinner. Check-out both www.AsianRim.com and their Face Book page for a better appreciation of this exceptional Pan-Asian eatery.

Located in The Colonnade at the intersection of I-459 & Hwy 280.

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. First, online it gave me very limited reservation times so I assumed it would be packed. Yet when I arrived, there were only 3 tables full and no more people came during the time I was there except to grab to-go orders. The restaurant menu was completely different than the menu on their site. I had chosen this restaurant based on the online menu because I am vegan and saw some good options. So I was extremely disappointed to see a different menu with many of the things I'd looked at no longer being on the menu. The waiter then described that the website was very outdated. I was sat near the entrance to the kitchen/sushi bar and "enjoyed" a weird smell throughout dinner. My table was so sticky that the first towel the waiter brought to wipe it off stuck to the table as well. My soup and edamame hummus were pretty good but the sushi was very dry and flavorless. When I asked for a refill on my water, the waiter brought a glass full of white specs floating in it. I sent the water back but the new glass that was brought also had things floating in it. At that point I didn't eat or drink anything else and I asked for my check. I do not plan to go back to this restaurant.

This is not my first visit to Asian Rim. Their sushi is amazing and food is always great! The only thing I can say that would improve the place would be a little more lighting.

No air conditioning, was very hot. Didn't have 2 dishes we ordered. Brought the wrong wine. Second wine delivered was very warm to hot. Had to ask twice for water refills. Food was fabulous though....

This was a very pleasant meal. The food was exceptional. Our waiter although had good intentions was obviously a novice. He forgot to provide eating utensils and was slow to check on the status of our meal. That being said, he did make an effort to offset his mistakes which was greatly appreciated and he recognized his errors. Overall I would recommend the location.

The sushi at the Asian rim is always excellent, it's fresh, prepared and presented well.
