The food and staff were great. Prices are extremely reasonable. Really good location. Lots going on close by for after dinner. They've got sushi and Chinese food which works out perfectly. I would highly recommend.

Late lunch here on trolley tour. Soups and meals delicious. Husband had octopus, miso soup, and beef/broccoli. I had wonton soup and seafood dumplings. Just right for a cold day in Asheville. Several other restaurants were closed after regular lunch hours, so this was a great find.

Great sushi restaurant in the heart of downtown that was recommended by the staff at the Double Tree Biltmore. Emily was our server and she was very sweet. She started out by making us a perfect martini. We had an some excellent unagi and tuna sashimi that melted in your mouth. We also shared a couple rolls that were fantastic.... More

We had the sushi (many different flavors) and it was all beautifully prepared and very delicious. The Coronas were warm.:( But the restaurant was clean and the service friendly.

This eatery is in the middle of the crowds mobbing downtown Asheville. Within 5 min walk, there must be close to 50 other eating places. To survive in this competitive environment, a restaurant must excel in at least one niche. It is unclear how this place can survive! I for one, am unlikely to return. It offers a typical uninspiring... More

We ended up here when the spot we wanted to eat downtown had a 2 hour wait. With Asheville being the home to so many great restaurants, Champa felt like a huge compromise for convenience. My dad always said if their isn't a wait, the restaurant probably isn't worth it. My partner was so disappointed with the Ginger Chicken, she... More

So many good things to choose from! Fast friendly service, fresh ingredients beautifully presented. We have eaten here on several occasions while visiting Asheville. The octopus appetizer is the freshest I've ever had. So sweet and delish! If you like Pho, you'll Champa!

My friend and I tried our very first pho bowl and were very impressed. The basil, cilantro, and other additions were super fresh and made the meal. Also reasonably priced.

We stopped here Saturday night for dinner and sat next to the front window which afforded us some excellent people watching opportunities. We both ordered the spicy tuna rolls which were very good (not as hot as I like). We received our order quickly. The staff was polite, the restaurant clean and the prices were reasonable.
