Asia Nine was a good dinner after a day of walking around museums. There wasn't anything special about the dining experience. We weren't disappointed, but we'll explore some other options during the remainder of our trip.

Im a fan of the pad thai and the sushi. Its a great place to grab some lunch, and you can order ahead online if youre in a rush.

We have driven by Asia 9 about a thousand times and thought that it sounded like the perfect pit stop before seeing a movie at the landmark theater nearby. In my mind I had built this place up to be a cute hole-in-the-wall with fantastic...More

Love this place! The staff is friendly, the service is fast, and the food is delicious. The sushi is hands down the best around. It is close to the Ford's Theater and a short walk from other major attractions so definitely worth checking out in...More

I met a vendor here for lunch. Service was great. I was in the mood for crunchy spicy tuna rolls. They were good, but I've had better. The chicken pad Thai was really good. I'd go again. Lots to choose from on the menu.

The sushi rolls were good, not great. They were about run of the mill compared to most places. Service was good and we didn't have to wait.

I would probably not go back to this restaurant - just because it is not my favorite type of food. But the restaurant is clean and we were early and were served quickly. The food was tasty.

Asia Nine’s design draws inspiration from different Asian cultures.Jewel tones and rich woods envelop guests with a warm and exotic atmosphere. A glowing washi paper sculpture illuminates the backwall, appealing to the curious spirits of guests. Facing the front window on a raised floor is Asia Nine’s sushi and oyster bar decked out with wood elements, enticing red tile accents, and custom painted tables and bar top. In the main dining area, slate tiles in shades of silver, grey and black cover the floor and compliment dark walnut tables and chairs, seating 100. A long spring green tile bar, seating55, flanks the right side of the room with a bamboo forest background highlighted with a steel waterfall. Directly across the room are large banquettes, wrapped in bamboo with a floating trellis overhead. Just past the banquettes and up the stairs is a cozy lounge, known as the VIP room, complete with a full bar and seating 40.
