Taste of Asia

Reviewed By Denarchy7

My sister in law ordered a variety of items, including Roanoke chicken, and Cashew Chicken, etc. Both were fairly good but I guess she had ordered Broccoli Chicken as well and they did not give it to them. Other than a mixup with the order the food was fairly above average. The pork dumplings (I believe they were pork) were good as well.

Kabuki Japanese Steak House

Reviewed By nomadicone2013

Checked in with the hostess 5 minutes before our reservation time. After a half hour checked with the hostess who rudely insisted we had not checked in. After another check and another half hour we were finally seated. Another 10 minutes before a waitress arrived. Waitress was obviously overloaded but did an excellent job given the crowd. The manager was on the floor trying to help. Food quality and service has gone down since our last visit. Vegetables were mostly onions with a little zucchini. Noise was deafening. Time to find another Japanese steak house.

Ike's Kitchen

Visited here while visiting family in the Roanoke. This place definitely doesn’t disappoint. Amazing Japanese food at an excellent price, with two entree’s with a one soda was 23 dollars. You definitely get your money’s worth eating here! I tried the teriyaki chicken with rice and vegetables. Cooked fresh, and perfectly seasoned. This place definitely comes recommended.

We didn't experience any of the issues mentioned in other reviews. The staff was very friendly. I will say their take on the teriyaki entrees was different than what we're used to, but it was delicious. My husband and son really enjoyed the sushi too!

My background - Sushi: as in raw fish - lover of food, traveled across US (Boston to San Diego) to Japan...This place has great service, friendly staff and excellent sashimi and sake! Who would expect in land locked Roanoke? There are actually a few really solid Sushi spots, others with other Chinese/ Japanese food, too. This place is focused on fish! And apparently the rolls and specials are fantastic, too, based on the people around me. I've moved Ben Gui to the top of my sushi list in Roanoke! Then 'Taste of Asia', Wasabi and 'Cafe Asia2'.Enjoy!

Cafe Asia

Reviewed By MMM_and_MPM

Having been on the road over a week we were craving Asian food. This restaurant seemed like a good bet with Sushi, Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese foods all available. We dined on Summer Rolls, Seaweed Salad,Miso Soup, Shumai Soup, a Salmon Cucumber Maki Roll and a Four Treasures entree with 4 proteins. Glasses of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were great accompaniments. We left very full and happy with the quality and selection of our dining choices.
