Had the sushi special. So So, but for a good price in a casual setting, all AOK!

Food was very good, but ambiance was lacking. You could tell they were just getting back into the swing of things after the pandemic, but with only 3 tables on a Friday night, it was a little worrisome when we walked in. Very generic restaurant. Would I go back for a quick meal, yes. Would I recommend it to others, no.

Server was very nice and the service was efficient. Tables spaced for social distancing. Pleasant atmosphere. My friend and I ordered sushi and sashimi dishes. Good presentation and quantity. Fairly bland. I think the problem was the rice with the sushi. I would try the other dishes to form a fuller opinion.

Maybe it's because we've not been out in so long, but I don't think so. We've always enjoyed this restaurant, and this time we brought friends. With their enthusiasm, we had an even better time. We had always stayed on the sushi side of the menu; they were far more adventurous, and let us taste some of the specialties they tried, such as Korean sizzling beef and seaweed salad. All were delightful. Service was very attentive; tables were widely spaced, for quiet and coronavirus safety. I'll be back again!

Was overcharged for drinks (charged $13 for a thai ice tea) instead of the real price of $3-$4

Came on a Friday night for happy hour. Service took very long. The waitress brought water with to the table and I requested that she bring me water with no ice. Just to let you know I never received water that night.

Took forever to take our orders and didn’t really get checked up on. And the place wasn’t even packed literally 5 tables of people.

Do better and always bring your guests water!

I had the most horrible experience ever with this restaurant. I made a 9pm reservation I get to the restaurant and they are allowing walk-ins to be seated before me and another group who made a reservation was seated. They sat me and my partner in the back in which we waited 30 minutes to be served. My partner order orange chicken, the chicken itself, was cold like ice. They made a mess of my order and at that point I was ready to go.

I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone

They totally OVER BOOKED for Valentines Day. Got there at 8:00pm for reservations and there were at least 4 couples who had reservations BEFORE us that were waiting to be seated. Staff at the restaurant were not informative at all of any possible wait or delays. Bad customer service all around won’t be returning!

The food was okay. 2 of the 3 entrees came out cold when they weren't supposed to. The mochi ice cream was delicious. Service was good. The real reason this place lost 2 stars is because online, it says they have velvet parking. Being out of town, this was something we were looking forward to. The hostess laughed about it when I asked for it saying that haven't had it for a long time. I thought that was absolutely ridiculous. Take it off Open Table if you no longer offer it. Otherwise, average experience.

The waitress was perfect, the food not so much. The tempura was tasteless and the Korean barbbq only a bit better. There was a cleanup going on near us with mops and a strong Mr Clean smell.
Even the green tea ice cream was less tasty than in most other places.

We visited Asia Nine for a quick meal before the theater. The service was quick --we were in and out in less than an hour. I very much enjoy cooked eel, and Asia Nine's version was delicious. Nothing fancy about the restaurant, but it delivered the goods.

We miss dining in. This seems longer ago than 3 months. We miss the staff. The steaming plates. The beverages. We’re so grateful they continued carry out during the pandemic. We long for Asia Nine to reopen, for colleagues and family and friends to join us for great meals inside once again.

Overall, very good. My lobster roll sushi special was excellent --- with lots of substance and great flavor. My partner's mix of different sushi's was average. He said the flavor was "okay" --- slightly bland. Service was decent. My partner's came out 5 to 10 minutes before mine. I could see the server hovering over the sushi folks to push them to get my order done. The restaurant was in a great location. It was noticeably brighter than the last time we were there (new lighting maybe?). All in all, it was a good meal, and I would recommend Asia Nine Bar and Lounge to others.

We had some issues with one of the dishes and nothing was done to really remedy it. The person in my party sent back some sushi that did not taste right and we were still charged for it. That was a bit disappointing, but everything else we ordered was great.

I must say that in all my years at dining at Asia Nine (over 10), I was appalled today that they actually asked us to move to the bar, since they needed our table. And, we weren't even there for an hour! We did purchase our lunch AND even drinks. Not like we were nonpaying patrons. Very disappointing, to say the least. I don't know if we'll return. Possibly not. I've never been asked to leave a restaurant before!

Great quality of food. I had the orange chicken and the portion was very generous, large chunks of high quality chicken breast, with a big bowl of rice and nice variety of perfectly cooked fresh vegetables (broccoli, carrotts, pea pods, zucchini, etc.).
