What have you done to our favourite Asian restaurant? This is no longer Asia style - it's been renamed asiama.
We will not be back unless we hear it's changed a lot - it's ka ka lok or Asia gourmet round the corner for us now.
Pale imitation of what it used to be - where's the free tea gone? Where's the Malaysian pancakes? ( "we don't do them any more - everyone asks for them" - err, yes, there's a reason why everyone asks for them)
Prices seem to have gone up, quality down - a toxic mix

Absolutely gutted to see the restaurant I have regularly visited become a bog standard Chinese restaurant.

The name change should have been the first indication. The absence of jasmine tea, the second. The unavailability of the soft- shelled crab the third.

What really got me was the Szechuan chicken. For years I have travelled to St. George's Road to get it as it was sublime. Unique in Glasgow as served in barter on a hot plate. A sizzling pile of divine. Now it has no batter, is served lukewarm and on a regular plate. Gutted doesn't cut it.

It must still be good food evidenced by the number of Chinese students who were eating at the same time as us, but it won't tempt me back from the Southside again.

Alternatively, aka Ka Lok beside it is lovely.

Gutted.

Completely new owners/chef, confirmed by lovely new young waiter struggling with all the complaints. Goodbye Asia Style, hello average Chinese restaurant.

Having been a huge fan of Asia Style for years, we were a bit wary when we saw that the name has changed to AsiaMa and that a new management was in place - never a good sign generally. Unfortunately, our concerns were proved to be well-placed as this evening's meal was terribly disappointing.
For a start, prices have been hiked. They now charge double as standard for soft shell crab, so a small box of it counts as two portions at £9, which is extortionate for what you get.
When it comes to mains, the overall impression is that corners have been cut, the quality of ingredients have been compromised. The lemon chicken sauce was synthetic and saccharine-sweet, where previously it had been a subtle honey-lemon flavour. Likewise, for the Three Delights, or Three Kinds of Stuff as it has been re-christened, the soy-onion sauce was thin, bland and lacking the depth of flavour we were used to.
Certainly, what we had was not inedible, but we were left feeling severely short-changed. The service under the old management may have been a bit haphazard, but the food was never anything other than delicious. I doubt we'll go back, which is a bit sad as it's been a much-loved place for us.
