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.).

I suppose we should have been clued in by the sparse crowd. We chose Asia Nine because it seemed to have good reviews and, more importantly, it ways close to the E Street Cinema. There were maybe 10 tables occupied, although granted that it was 6 PM. I ordered the drunken noodles with chicken and my wife ordered a beef dish. We intended to share but the beef had a strange flavor that made me question its quality. We frequently go to Asian restaurants and I’ve never tasted anything like that before. We ended up mostly sharing the drunken noodles, which I thought was fine. With so many other options, I doubt we would go back.

I ordered Korean beef dish. Very bland and tasteless. Let server know but he just said sorry. They brought main meal of my friend out first and then realized all food should come out together. Drinks very icy and watered down. Small wine glass was filled to about 2 ounces. Considering it was the evening of a concert and the place was empty, should have alerted us that we should have opted for a different venue. Also, very expensive for our experience.
