I was in Washington, D.C. on business so I decided to visit Asian Spice after seeing its high rating here on Tripadvisor. I didn't know what to expect but upon entering the restaurant, I immediately liked the modern Asian-influenced decor, which was not evident from the outside. As I was alone, I sat by one of the tables opposite the... More

Ate here one Thursday night. It was quiet enough. First impressions are meaningful and the host was rude and appeared uninterested which worried me. However, waitress was friendly and attentive. Sushi was fine. Nothing special but not bad. Main meals were average too. Partner ordered duck noodles which he thought were nice, I thought they tasted bland, I ordered a... More

Place is more than a bit worn around the edges. Cleanliness appears suspect - and restrooms bear that out. So-so sushi had dry rice and inappropriate use of Nori (seaweed) wraps that overpowered some items. Mechanical, glum but acceptably pleasant staff. The Vietnamese spring rolls, stir fry rice/vegs were decent. A bit over priced but not terribly out of line.... More

Good cocktail menu. Portions are just the right size and they made sure everything was divided in three so that we could easily share with our group.

Very mediocre. Service is not the best. kind of typical Asian restaurant. Miso soup small plates and not very tasty, a lot of onions. Maki sushi are good, but very small. Tea is brought in a bag ... the first time we brought the tea is not in a teapot. We ate very modest and it is not worth the... More

I ordered mainly off the sushi menu. Everything was fresh and mostly tasty. I sat at the bar, and the bartender was friendly and offered quick service. Overall, it was a good experience. This place is not exceptional when it comes to sushi, but I would probably go there again.

A bit disappointed. Miso soup - tasted like dish water. Avoid it. Spring rolls - very good !! Wife had General Tsaos- good and tasty but nothing special. I had Imperial Seafood in ginger and bean sauce. It was drowning in a liquid sauce overwhelming the food. The seafood was indeed tasty (except for the crab - did not taste... More

Walked in around 2030 on a slow Wednesday night. After I was sat I waited for some time. Finally a waiter showed up and I ordered a glass of wine. I believe my waiter was kidnapped or abducted being he never returned. I finally walked out after 20 minuets.

We weren't real hungry because we had been eating junk all day but figured we should eat something somewhat nutritious. We were checking out Chinatown on our way back to our hotel and got some sushi here. The veg sushi is quite tasty. And it hit the spot. Just right.
