Asia Nine Bar and Lounge
Solid offerings of Asian food, especially sushi and Thai dishes. Decor and ambiance leave something to be desired. At its price point and location, if you’re just looking for a casual meal, it’s recommended.
Service was slow, food was served cold.
My friend and I ordered from the sushi menu and from the entrees. Both were delicious and reasonably priced. The service was impeccable.
Food was average. Drinks fine. Service excellent. Just nothing special.
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful.
Excellent menu, many selections, all delicious, excellent service and consistently reliable
We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly our food came out given the size of our group. Most of the dessert options weren’t available but everyone seemed pleased with their meals and drinks.
I booked a reservation for a business lunch. Service was pretty quick. The menu provided plenty of options. I was looking for low-carb food and I saw a few options. The salad selection is pretty decent.
Some of the tables are small, so it is tough to get comfy, but that's fine for a quick lunch meeting.
We both ordered a curry, and both thought it was very good, excellent spice level. Our server was kind of spacey, totally forgot we ordered an appetizer. They seemed to have a very lively happy hour crowd, but they were in the bar area, so the noise didn't bother us very much.
Excellent, just excellent. Perfect service. Great wine, and the best beef pho in DC.
While I love Asia Nine, have been coming here for years & have made it my “go-to” of choice for special occasions, I still find it very expensive & the cocktails are not good — too much mixers, too sweet & I cannot taste the alcohol. Erika Mack-Dillaber
We took a large group of people out to lunch to this restaurant. The wait staff could not have been more accommodating, the food was excellent, the value was fair, and the overall experience was very good. I would definitely return again.
Terrific. Probably the best beef pho in town. California rolls are always great. Good wine and excellent service.
We haven't been to Asia Nine in a long time, but I'm very glad we returned to it after a film at E Street. Asia Nine used to be our post-E Street, go-to restaurant, because there aren't many reasonably priced restaurants within a short walk that have good food. But, because we went there so often, we started trying out other places farther away. We returned because we were with a vegetarian friend, and Asia Nine has a lot of veggie options. The Three Flavor Tilapia that I had was wonderful, and the other two people in my party loved their dishes also.
Food lacked flavor, but service was great.
I received excellent service at Asia Nine the two times that I visited this restaurant. They accomodated my request for my group of 12 on Nov 1st. The food was amazing and I can't wait to go back.
We sat in the bar area and had the best waitress. Love coming here for lunch
Being vegan with a vegetarian girlfriend makes every restaurant experience difficult. Asia Nine has an extensive menu with good options and excellent food. The service was very good and the server was willing to accommodate our needs. Asia Nine is on my go to list.
A fun, excellent pre- theatre dinner. Fine service and really good service . Our first visit Webwillbgo back !
The waitress was phenomenal. I'm angry at myself for not getting her name.
Restaurant was closed at our reservation time
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Asia Nine. Service is always friendly. The variety of ASIAN food choices makes this a great place for friends getting together. I enjoy the food, though this last go around, most of the dishes were just a bit too salty.
The food and service were great as usual, and little wait time for food.
We received a bloodied chicken dish which was disheartening. The rest of the food was great. They were good about not charging us and not pressing the issue. The other issue was that I mentioned that one of the girls in my party had a nut allergy, but the waitress failed to direct us on what to avoid ordering. She received a Thai green papaya salad with peanut.
You must go and eat with some friends, the place is nice and the food is awesome. Love the Happy Hours.
Hair found in food
The service was outstanding .. even timing our entrees until our appetizers were eaten! That doesn't always happen. There seem to be better times of the day to go -- lunchtime is almost always very busy so going early (11/11:30) or late (after 1) are better times. Was esp. pleased that the good jazz was playing v. the somtimes pretty awful hardrock! Better music for lunch and even dinner for conversations helps.
My experience was terrible, the service was even more terrible, and the food wasn’t even worth it.
The food (especially the curry) left a lot to be desired.
always enjoy the happy hour deals at Asia Nine and it's a good option before going to E Street Theater.
We were visiting DC for the week. We stopped at Asia nine on our first day in town and then again on our last day in town. The sushi and sashimi we're fresh and delicious. The entrees we had were well-prepared and delicious, both times it was a very enjoyable late lunch and early dinner.
Stopped here for a late lunch sushi and sashimi were fresh and delicious the kids loved it.
Consistently good food -- esp. when they aren't overly busy! Only complaint was that around 7-something in the evening, the music changed from 'we can still talk' to almost disco-like. Odd choice on the night before a holiday and a not-crowded restaurant with more people seeming to be there for a dinner w/ conversation. Food was great. Server excellent.
Food was good except for the horrible Mochi ice cream. Also added 20% tip on total and tax and we only had 2 on our check. I normally tip on the tax also but didn't like the assumption.
Great ramen! The restaurant was quiet/not busy for a Friday night, but service was excellent.
The restaurant would benefit from some repairs. Tile was missing in the bathroom, some chipped paint and overall wear and tear throughout.
Even though we called and made reservations, we were give less desirable seating right near the front door. Not enough servers and those called in to help were dressed inappropriately.
Was expecting a much different experience for this price.
A few co-workers took out a friend for her birthday. They gave us so much food, that we could only eat half of it. The food was cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
We booked a table for 8. My coworkers arrived early and checked in and they sat them at a table for 6. They tried to assist and pull up another table to make it 8 and the Male host got upset, pouring about nobody listening to him when he'd obviously made a mistake, so they moved themselves to a proper seat for 8 in the back. The restaurant was not full, so this is a bit embarrassing. Checks, food and service are typically lacking when we go in a group larger than 4 sadly, but better training and attentiveness is required. Really the only thing it has going is the food is usually great, but this time the seafood in the udon soup dish tasted off, and not fresh at all. We have to find another venue for large parties of 6 or more.
Attentive service, wonderful food. Perfect dinner!
Asia Nine's Lamb Chops are supurb! Tender, moist, flavorful! You won't be disappointed. The red sangria is great too! This is a great pre-theater restaurant.
