This was our second time here. The menu is unlike other local restaurants. We enjoy the unique and tasty options. Servers are fantastic! I am not usually a cocktail girl, but they've got a few you cannot pass up! We will definitely be back.

Nice atmosphere. Waitress didn’t refill water. Clean bathrooms. Upon reheating my take home food, I realize the meal was extremely salty. I ordered creamy basil catfish. The sauce was thick and pasty. I feel like I’m eating a salt lick. I didn’t notice it before because I had 2 very strong drinks by the time my food arrived. Even the sauce for the appetizer had a weird almost on the brink of spoiled taste to it. This is very strange for Asparagus restaurant. Typically the food is spot on. The drinks are always strong, which I appreciate for the cost, but the food and server didn’t match the superb service for this restaurant. Was there a new chef? Are customers not allowed more than 1 glass of water? 🤷🏾‍♀️

Our server was attentive and gave suggestions. She also clarified which 5spiced duck we wanted. We wanted the spring roll not the family dinner.

We’ve been dining at Chef Tammy’s restaurants for clise to 20 years. Even with the abbreviations on the number of items on the menu, I was still able to order my favorite: Pineapple Curry with Shrimp. Yum

I usually love this restaurant. Service as good, cocktails were not good and appetizer platter tasted like low budget Chinese restaurant. My worst experience at this spit. I will give it one more chance but spent $400,00 for 4 and really feel it was a weak performance for this restaurant.

Everything was fine. But I wondered why I was asked what was the occasion when they did not acknowledge it. It was my birthday and I thought I would have received some kind of birthday token, a dessert with a candle or something. Other than that it was a nice experience.

Menu was limited not as many choices as last time. Food and service were excellent. Would be nice if they could expand their menu to include basic Asian dishes and serve bread with the dinners. Calamari was good but not much on the plate and not enough sauce.

Three of us rarely get together so lots of catching up was happening. We ordered wine and the conversation consumed us. Our wonderful waiter, Joe, completely understood the situation. He did not hover or pressure us to order. When we were ready, he was there to assist. We requested four small plates to share as our meal. Each was excellent with rich, unique flavors. An overall excellent experience. Look forward to returning.

Delicious food & wonderful service (thank you Dwight!). Enjoyed the pad see eiw, duck confit, and sea bass dishes and all had amazing flavor. Beautiful ambiance and more on the quiet side, which suited my husband and I perfectly.

Love love asparagus! Unfortunately though, the last two times I’ve been I have gotten an upset stomach. I think it might be the tofu, the texture and flavor is way different than it was a few months ago. Still won’t keep me from eating there though!

If you want fresh vegetables and excellent meat included in an Asian fusion dish then this is your restaurant! If you are a seafood lover such as I am you can’t go wrong. The shrimp and scallops with basil leaves was incredible! All the vegetables in the pad Thai or fresh and cooked perfectly.

Food was fantastic, as was the service and pace of the meal. Pricey, yes, but not unhappy paying for something you really can't get elsewhere in NWI. They do a bang up job and deserve more attention. A true gem!

Really great menu with lots of variety, I think partly because Vietnamese cooking has so many interesting influences from SE Asia, China and France. It is all delicious and servings are generous so there is plenty to take home and enjoy again.

Our seats that were reserved were given to someone else. The waiter was wasting a drink that I’ve purchased on the way to the table also the area wasn’t as romantic as I would’ve like also over priced

My family took me to Asparagus for my birthday dinner. I love Panang Curry with Chicken and Asparagus’ version is terrific. We also had calamari, fried spring rolls, and chicken Pad Thai...all excellent. We will be returning.
