We thought we made a reservation...turns out we didn't but the manager was kind enough to seat us and we were glad he did! Selections include Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Nice choices for cocktails and beer too. They were out of fresh spring rolls but the fried were good too. We tried the duck roll which is like Peking... More

Beautiful setting, full bar with craft beers, and a good pan-Asian menu. I had the Thai Green Curry, and although the general flavour was there, my jumbo shrimps were not jumbo at all and were absolutely tasteless.

We ordered 7 things. They were out of 6. We ordered a couple more, they said they had them, then came back and said they were out of steak. My wife asked, "what do you have?" The waiter responded, "everything on the entree menu, except for anything beef or lamb." That eliminated almost half of the entree list. I can't... More

Happy hour is a good deal. The Spicy Tuna Roll ($5) is good. The Tempura Roll ($5) is also good. The dumplings were a solid so-so. We found the service a bit cold. At the time of writing, this restaurant was rated as one of the best Chinese restaurants in DC by TripAdvisor. We strongly disagree based on menu and... More

You definitely can find something to eat on the menu that was good. Service was quick. The Thai tea was good.

I was in Washington, D.C. on business so I decided to visit Asian Spice after seeing its high rating here on Tripadvisor. I didn't know what to expect but upon entering the restaurant, I immediately liked the modern Asian-influenced decor, which was not evident from the outside. As I was alone, I sat by one of the tables opposite the... More
