THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Asia Restaurant Review

: Easily one of the most popular downtown lunchtime and after-work destinations for casual eats, this Pan-Asian place has it all: great sushi, sparkling stir-fries, searing noodle dishes and soups and terrific curries, all executed and delivered with finesse. The food is so good and the prices so reasonable that you probably will return often to eat your way across Asia. We love the ultra-fresh sushi. Five sushi chefs may be wielding knives at any given time. The blistering-hot Malaysian curry laksa is also a standout. Nothing disappoints here, which is why you’ll be lucky to find a seat in the downstairs dining area, at the sushi bar or upstairs in the loft. Also located at 1550 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA, 703-741-0870.
