Asian Kitchen Chinese Food
Ranked #284 of 1,149 Restaurants in Sarasota
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 April 2018

First off, you have to know this is family run, not a chain. It is in a low-end strip mall where the real estate is probably reasonable. There are only about 6 tables so I guess most of the traffic is carry out.

The menu appears to be mostly Chinese food with a couple of Thai options. I detected the traditional Vietnamese cooking method in the pork served with my order of Singapore Mi Fun. My acid test is always the egg roll and theirs were perfect. I must try the spring rolls next time.

The remarkable characteristic is the fresh and light touch of the sauces and flavorings in the dishes. Too many Chinese restaurants smother the food in a gooey sauce that ruins the dish. Not here. They also do more with mixed meats than their competition. Pork and shrimp, chicken and pork appear in several dishes as well as offerings of meat with tofu. The vegetarian selections are awesome. They use no MSG and have gluten free options. They have a few dishes made with grouper as well.

My husband and I decided to order in and needed a restaurant that delivered. We were both very pleased with our entree order and it was delivered very quickly. Will choose Asian Kitchens again!

We’ve been here for almost 6 months and have yet to find a good Chinese Restaurant...until now. Reviews were good so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! The cook and waitstaff were great! Food was tasty and abundant. We’ve returned a couple of times since our first visit. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed,

This friendly Asian restaurant uses fresh ingredients and both times we have been there we have been surprised at the delicious sauces in the entrée. The Crispy duck on vegetables is made in house and tastes as good as we have had in china town in NY. The grouper in asparagus garlic sauce dish had a large portion of grouper and the asparagus was cooked perfectly. Hot and sour soup had a mild spicy flavor and was a generous portion. Service is fast and friendly. This is not the food you get a most 'chain' Chinese restaurants. We have eaten Chinese in china town of Seattle, NY and Boston and this place ranks up there with the best.

By all means, try the sliced pork with Human black bean sauce and the rice of your choice. Simply delicious, a five star Asian dining experience. Very pleasant wait staff as well.
