About

TEN ASIAN BISTRO & SUSHI is the newest Asian restaurant to come to Newport Beach. Upon arriving you will experience a beautiful grand waterfall at the entrance. Once inside, the Asian design continues where a 16-foot Buddha overlooks the beautiful main dining room. There are two patios complete with fire pits, each aptly named, the Shanghi Patio, and the Zen Garden Patio. The use of kinetic color lighting makes for a new experience every few moments. Without a doubt, one of the most beautifully designed restaurants in California. The design of TEN may be described as a 'Philippe Starck meets the Orient' with its modern mystical dining room.

CAUTION: Ten has lost its liquor license (if you know about its connected crazy club in the other half of the building, this is no surprise) and will shut down during at least August 2010 and use the time to refurbish.

The sushi rolls are good but they don't have that extra wow factor, and are overpriced. Softshell crab handroll with sesame soy paper and their garlic edamame are very yummy! Should definitely try them!

Service was very slow, in fact, we were a group of five and one girl's food was so late, she got her rolls after everyone had finished eating their food. We complained to the waiter about it but nothing was done to compensate for it.
A disappointing experience, specially that I have been here before (4 years ago), sat at the bar and had an amazing time and ate AMAZING sushi! Not the same calibre anymore.

Very disappointing. The sushi rolls were mainly rice with very heavy mayonnaise crab filling. We were hoping this was not one of those sushi places that is all rice and filler but it was. Some of the creative dishes seemed fun to try, many with jalapenos which overpowered what little fish was in or on the roll. Stick with sashimi otherwise ask for the rice on the side so you will actually get some fish with your rolls. Would not go back with so many sushi places in Orange County.

This used to be my go to place for sushi but the last couple of times have really turned me off.It seems to be under new ownership/management.There is a club next door that is attached to the restaurant and apparently when the club is overflowing they open the sliding walls to the restaurant.My husband and I and several other patrons were sitting at the sushi bar around 10:30pm when they started to stack up chairs and tables all around us.One poor family who happen to be sitting in the middle of the dining area had all the workers moving tables and chairs all around them until they were sitting in the middle by themselves w/the workers waiting for them to finish so they could move their table as well.They didn't have liqour lic last time.

AMAZING!! We were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary which just so happened to fall on the 1st day of the NBA finals! Upon first walking in, the crowd was loud and it was not what I imagined for our celebration. However, we decided to enjoy the last quarter of the game and then take our seats outside on their beautiful patio area equipped with fire and waterfall. Wonderfully romantic. Our service was impeccable, waitress was INCREDIBLE and we plan on visiting again soon! Oh and did I mention the food was great too! I don't really care for sushi but my husband ordered some amazing tempura sushi rolls and I couldn't get enough! YUM! We had the chilean sea bass and pad thai...followed by bread pudding...they made our 15th the best!

This was my first time to Ten Asian Bistro and it was well worth it. The food was amazing, the restaurant itself had a sophisticated, fun, hollywood-like feel to it. The service was reasonable and friendly. I definately recommend this place and will definately go back again.

Pretty much the only reason I ate here was because I was staying at the Fairmont across the street and it was close. I made a reservation for a specific table and upon arriving they had given my table away even tho' there were plenty of empty tables. In fact it was pretty empty for a sat. night. We ordered the hunan long beans and mongolian beef. The flavor was decent but the beans were shriveled up and tasted old, the beef tasted like it was made the day before and reheated, nothing tasted fresh, i would never eat here again

An excellent restaurant with well prepared dishes and an unsurpassed atmosphere where a little bit of Hollywood hits behind the "Iron Curtain." The Sushi is fresh and the cooked plates are tasteful. The bar is vibrant and you don't have to worry about the baby strollers that are so common to OC restaurants. Will definitely visit again!

We love the food at Ten! We had a close friend in town from Texas and we had been raving about how great this restaurant was. Our experience at Ten this time was not good. We had a reservation which didn't matter at all. They sat a bunch of people that were waiting without reservations before us. My husband then saw a table open and had to actually ask the hostess if she could seat us there which she did. We then sat at that table for over 15 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us. 15 minutes! We then asked the hostess to send someone over to our table to serve us and she didn't, we continued to wait. We then flagged down a server who finally helped us. We asked to speak to a manager but one never came to the table. Disappointing!

My friend and I went there for the first time as a birthday celebration. We both completely agreed that we had an excellent time. The food was wickedly good. We only ate the sashimi and were very happy with our selections with the great help of our waitress. The fish is very fresh. Would easily go their again and highly recommended. Oh and before I forget, they also make a great Mojito!!

Went for lunch and had a good time. The food was nice and the atmosphere is the real enjoyment. It has a very cool waterfall entrance that you go under to get into the restuarant. It is romantic.

It was wonderful. The food was different and the taste was great. I only had sushi and my favorite is the Green Dragon and the Dynomite. The price range was decent and worth it. The place was beautiful. The service was really good. I love this restaurant, I would love to eat here every day but its too far.

My boyfriend took me here for V-day and by the looks of the outside I was very impressed. There was two huge waterfall fountains outside the restaurant and the inside had a very eclectic feel and ambiance. the waitress was super friendly and sweet. I wouldn't really come here for the food though because it wasn't really anything special but perhaps for the bar or the sushi bar.

We had a great time and teh service and food was excellent. One thing I would change is allowing the customer to buy a drink form the bar and bringing it to your table makes no sense to pay regular price during Happy Hour

Service was poor. Was not served water until after two requests and after the appitizers were served. Apptizers were not served at the same time although they were good. Menu has changed and the shrimp shumai and whole fish are no longer available which is unfortunate. However the seabass was delicious. I had ordered flowers for the table in advance and they were not on the table and was told that they didn't have any. After a while they were found and then put on the table. Staff, including hostesses and food servers need to be more attentive to patrons.

Food was good, as well as service. We took a baby with us, and although we were accomodated with a high chair, we noticed that it wasn't a family type of restaurant. It had more of a swanky type feel where adults want to have good adult company conversation and dining. I stated that it was my sons birthday dinner, and the restaurant did nothing to accomodate the occasion. That was a dissapointment.

The service is warm and friendly with prompt attention, waiter has good recommendations (jessie). The only sushi item was so so. The new Chinese dishes were outstanding especially spicy calamari and kung Pao tofu. Our only criticism being cardiologists is the amount of oil used is unhealthy. Please tell the chef to back off on these oils! Wine list is so so!

Overall experience was very pleasant. Food was delicious, and our server was very attentive.

However, the hostess did not greet us as we entered, nor smiled even once during the brief interaction with her. As we left, there was one other hostess who thanked us on our way out. The one who we dealt with did not even acknowledge at all. Sorry excuse for a hostess.

We used to love TEN...but it seems the rolls have been cheapy lately and for the price of $15 for specialty rolls it was disappointing. Also, we arrived really early at 5:00-5:30 and most spaces were coned off for valet with empty parking lot. We parked in an area not coned off and the parking attendant came over and asked us to move and was really rude. We have had a few other bad experiences here lately and will not be returning.
