"Amazing food! Vegan options!"
- I've lived in Asia for 7 years and gosh I miss the food. Taste of Asia is the best place I have found in Sarasota for authentic Asian cuisine, very friendly service, beautiful restaurant ...and the best of all, they have a vegan menu!! A whole vegan menu. I'm in heaven. Highly recommended for both vegetarians and meat lovers out there.
"Cool Place. Great Food" - What an amazing place to be in. A great escape from anything Sarasota has to offer. Being inside feels like a trip out of the country. Beautiful, peaceful, and cozy eating experience. Now the food. I am a picky eater and there wasn't anything I didn't like. All fresh and all personally made by the owner. Family all works in the business and treats you like they invited you to there home.
"Give this place a try!" - The exterior is what it is, I'm guessing Denny's or Wendy's and it almost stopped us from going in. I am so glad we did. The food is wonderful and the staff could not be sweeter. The Vietnam Rolls and Lumplings are great appetizers. The cauliflower broccoli fried rice (trick here there is no rice) is a very healthy choice. My family loves the curries as well. Well worth your time and money.
"Great for vegetarians and vegans" - Very nice atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The food was excellent and served hot. Prices are very reasonable. Will return again!
"Tasty Thai" - My friends took me they are regulars at this place. The owner came to our table and talked to us she's very cool. That was a nice touch. The whole staff was friendly and the food was delicious. I had Pad Thai. The restrooms were clean and modern. An all around good experience.
"Don't let the outside fool you, it's great." - I saw this restaurant open recently but I think the simple signage and outside look made me not hurry to try it. However, a friend of ours is a very experienced French chef and he and his wife invited us to dinner there. Boy was I surprised! We had several appetizers (mainly different rolls) and they were excellent. The wife had yellow curry with chicken over saffron rice, and I had Panang curry (medium spicy). Both dishes were perfect. The others at the table were equally impressed. Several people had so much food that they had to get take home containers. The decor is simple but elegant. The wait staff were all very pleasant, attentive, and responsive. One other thing I love about their menu is that it isn't just one type of Asian cuisine. The owners have done a great job of incorporating several different Asian foods throughout the menu. I had the wife's leftovers for lunch today and now I can't wait to go back!
