Asian Palate has become one of the best places to eat in Chaffee County. They have great food in a very nice atmosphere. They offer live music many nights of the week and all kinds of creative dining, guest chefs, and a community table, if you are interested in that kind of meal. Or you can just enjoy a typical great meal with your guests in the usual setting. The price is very reasonable for the type of meal that it is. It has a great sushi bar, which is very unusual in this neck of the woods.

The owner goes to great lengths to insure that only the very best sushi is imported weekly. The presentation is very artistic and the prices are reasonable. Most visitors to this small town are blown away by the high quality of the entrees.

We stayed in BV for a few nights over Spring Break. We met some friends and their two young children here for dinner one night. We didn't want to drive all the way to Salida and back just for dinner. I am glad we chose this restaurant and would go back in a heartbeat.
I am not sure what I expected. But this being ranching, mining, tourist country in Colorado, I wasn't expecting much, and was prepared for sub-par food. Outside of the Front Range and high end ski resorts, a good restaurant is an exception; The majority are middle of the road.
So I was really pleased to have a spicy Thai noodle dish with tofu and broccoli that actually had some kick to it! The spicy entrees on the menu are connotated with little red chili peppers- these are what I would recommend. It was not "Thai hot" by any means, but it was well prepared and flavorful.
The California rolls were average.
The service was top notch (which, if you think about the fact that there are is a scarcity of jobs and those residents who live there in order to take advantage of all the outdoor recreating opportunities, makes perfect sense, because they want and need those tips!).
The entrees are around $13-$15 bucks- more for specials.
Some effort has definately been put into the decor and the atmosphere was quite nice.

Food was pretty good, I would say a little pricey for a smaller town, but some of the best in BV. Service and atmosphere was great.

Very disappointed with our experience here. Our thai dishes had no flavor let alone taste like a thai dish. Food is very pricey. While the owner is Asian (Filippino), the chef isn't. Service was great but it's not enough to bring us back a second time.
