The waiting staff were terrible. They brought my friend out a meal she ordered, but my friend decided that the meal didn't look appetizing. That said, the waitress agreed to switch the food out with another entrée, but instead brought her out the same meal and just reorganized the ingredients on the plate. I will not go back here again.

The food was excellent; the coconut soup with lemon grass was just a delightful blend of flavors. I also loved the salmon tartar - it had caviar sprinkled on it to give it a little crunchy texture. The ambiance is OK; a very open area with lots of tables.

We were a group of 4 in for a pre-theater dinner and split everything, and everything was worth ordering again. Two star appetizers - duck roll and curry puffs. The lo mein with ground chicken was perfectly spicy. Panang curry was delicious. We added the papaya salad, which added freshness to the table. We'll be back again soon.

Food was good but not great but good sized portions. Fair value for the money. Ambiance was okay for informal dining. Not a "date" restaurant. It wasn't crowded when we were there but there are so many tables in the large room I would imagine it could get very noisy.

This place has gone downhill. Service was awful with our waitress smelling like fresh smoke. Kept forgetting orders and then would come back 5 minutes later to say they were out of a particular item. Prices are high for relatively moderate portions. There are many other Asian resturaunt in this area I would recommend over Asian Nine

I was disappointed for waiting 5-10 mins to be seated. I also had reservations. I was on my lunch and only had a hour. I was late getting back to work. There was only one Attendant at the host station and he was taking care of carryout order, uber eats & sitting people that were arriving. I had to get a waitress to seat us so we would not have to wait any longer.

I was eating alone. They were very nice. Did not put me in the corner as some restaurants do with single diners.

I was there during Sunday happy hour. The happy hour food was very good.

The food was excellent, we started with the crab Rangoon, a sushi roll, and the spring rolls. I had the Korean beef which was flavored delicious.

Despite restaurant being only 1/4 filled, we waited after being seated 20 minutes for a server to come by with water. We had to go to the front desk to ask. After we ordered, the food came quickly, but getting the server's attention for more wine, water & dessert was difficult. While the server was pleasant, he seemed to be so multi-tasked that he was not focused. We asked if other waitstaff did not show up but he said that this was "normal." While we like the food, this is about the 3rd time we have experienced service problems. We will no longer return to this place.

It's always nice to take a new friend to Asia Nine and she loved the sushi. I tried "Crying Tiger" because it was a day that I wanted beef which I eat little of. It wasn't great. The meat was overcooked and tho' I love the sides, they also come with the Thai BBQ Chicken which I recommend far more than the meat. The sizzling beef looks like a better quality beef if you are in the mood for beef.
BEST was that they had jazz playing! FAR better than the usual too-loud other music. It suited the restaurant far better.

As usual, Asia 9 was great! As you will see, I continue to select this as my first-choice restaurant. The only negative comment I would like to make for the first time, is that sitting near the front of the restaurant was super cold and not comfortable, hard to enjoy my meal as the door opened and closed each time.

I was driving past Asian Nine this weekend to another place and thought "this place was great, I must go back!" I immediately cancelled my previous reservation and scheduled for here. Asia 9 did not disappoint! The rolls were very high quality as was the sashimi. Their portions were generous, beautifully presented and everything was delicious. My favorites were the fatty tuna sushi and the salmon sashimi. I will be back!!

Very good food, generous portions. Service was very nice, if a little slow. Expansive dining area, nice subdued atmosphere. Might be noisy when full, but last Friday night we could talk without shouting at each other, speaking at normal volume. Bathroom could use attention (try and go before you arrive).

The service was fantastic, the setting was very nice, the food was moderate and the noise ("music") was unbearable. There are better options near the theater, especially if you're looking for the great food that abounds in D.C.
