Great dim sum and the happy hour lasts from four pm until closing. Egg rolls and shrimp balls are tasty as are the regular menu items like cashew chicken.

I eat here a couple times a month. I would go more if I lived closer. This was one of the first places I would take friends if they arrived from out of town. In the past I didn't mind the poor service because the food is good and the restaurant is clean. I ate there today and accidently left my sunglasses. I called 20 minutes after I left the restaurant to see if they would hold them for me until I can get a chance to go back and pick them up. The curly haired manager said he could not find them, when they were in the middle of the table. I guess someone in their staff took "FINDERS KEPPERS" seriously. Dishonest people SUCK! They just lost a loyal customer forever. I hope they know that karma sucks, also. DO NOT DINE HERE!!!

My friends and I went to O'Asian on the night of their wedding. What was supposed to be a extremely joyous occasion turned into an extremely frustrating one when we received the worst service I could have ever imagined. What made this even more ridiculous was the fact that we were literally the only people in the restaurant. I might almost understand if we had come in late and kept them open, but it was barely 6:00 pm!

From the moment we walked in, the manager at the front was extremely rude. This continued with every server we encountered throughout the evening. Anytime we asked for anything, (whether it was to order something, or simply ask for a fork) we were scoffed at and made to feel like we were bothering them. Again, we were the only people there! I would think they would have been a little happier to get the business.

I was extremely embarrassed, because the restaurant was my recommendation. All of the employees were angry and dismissive and could not seem to get us out fast enough. Now my recommendation is to stay away from this restaurant at all costs.

Pros: The food was okay

Cons: Worst service Ever!!! (Seriously)

.

I've dined in for dinner only once and it was during the holiday season so the decor was lovely (especially the xmas tree) however the service was very lacking. That's the only time I've had a sub-par experience here. Other than that one negative dining experience, Happy Hour never lets me down!

Pros: Great food, prices, upscale ambiance

Cons: not recommended for big parties

.

The bar is large, comfortable, and has $5 happy hour plates with generous portions. The happy hour menu is more than just dim sum and includes many choices that I haven't seen in restaurants in the International District.

Everything I've tried is fresh and hot and very good.

I've been there many times and never had a bad experience. Each time the food and drinks were served promptly with consistent quality. I love this place!

Staff always remembers my name and knows what I like and dislike, maybe that's because I am there often enough. Great looking people are always there and has a good feel about the place.

Pros: Free parking after 530pm, good portions on food

Cons: Hidden away from the street

I've heard a lot about this place so decided to give it a shot. We came in and was greeted by the hostess and said it would be 30 minutes for a table. Great not that bad but what was odd was that only 5 or 6 tables/booths were full and the rest of the place was empty.
Walking to the bar, I noticed a table that was empty but dishes were still piled on it. We sat down at the bar and started chatting with the bartender. Great guy and good drinks.
25 minutes pass and we're told our table was ready so we moved to the table. Passing that previous dirty table, I noticed it was still piled up with the same dishes. Should've realized that was a dead give away.

We sat down and were given our menus. We got some water and then proceeded to wait, and wait, and wait. We kept on looking at our menus and started to drool, but still ended up waiting and waiting.
After 20 minutes of this, and trying to flag people down, we ended up closing our bill at the bar (heck he was the only one that gave us good service) and went to eat at Pomodoro's. Hostess watched us walk off, and didn't even ask. Wouldn't think she'd care either way so last time I'll ever go to this place.

Just wanted to be clear, this didn't happen in the last couple of days but occurred about 3-4 weeks ago. Don't remember specific dates but doesn't matter since won't be coming back anyways.

Went here for some pu pu's and drinks at happy hour. Really enjoyed the soju drink I had, and tried a mojito that was tasty. Food was decently priced for happy hour downtown, and the place is huge.

The service is crazy SLOW and BAD! A friend and I went to have dinner New Year's Eve and found the restaurant had a fixed price dinner for $65 per PERSON! Too Much Food and $$$ for us, so we chose the bar for Happy Hour. It was only 5:45PM and there were only five other customers in the bar. After sitting down, our waitress came by with bar menus and reminded us that we only had antil 7PM for Happy Hour prices. We immediatley ordered a cocktail and a soda. Five minutes later our waitress brings us ice water (huh?). Another ten minutes go by while we watch our waitress fold napkins and the bartender chat-up a couple of guys at the bar. Apparently our drinks were being flown in from China. With no drinks in sight and our wait already too long... we left. I will never go back and I will tell everyone I know to avoid this place.

I work at the BOA building and last week I needed a cake for a surprised birthday party. I remember a friend told me that O'Asian downstairs started serving dessert. So, I gave it a try. Sure enough they have a few already made cakes to choose from. I picked Hazelnut chocolate mosse cake and all my friends totally love it

I am new to the Seattle area and in the mood for some Asian cuisine. Yelp ratings show this place as pretty dismal but CitySearch had several good reviews, so we gave it a try. This is a Friday night of a holiday weekend, so I was worried it might be hard to get a table. We found parking easily and walked up to what was a pretty classy place.

First thing we noticed was that the place was essentially empty--we thought we had come after they closed. We were seated next to the only other people in the place out of the 40+ tables they had. We ordered the lettuce wrap, General Taos chicken, Mongolian beef and the Chow Mein. All pretty standard dishes that even Panda Express would have a hard time getting wrong.

The lettuce wrap tipped us off to what we were in for. It was incredibly bland and even drenched in sauce didnt have much taste, but they didnt give us enough sauce anyways so the last two had none at all. Awful. Quickly after that came out came the chicken. It looked appealing on a bed of broccoli, but ended up incredibly bland. It was clearly cooked long ago and reheated which led it to be mushy. The broccoli was cold as well. Quickly after this disaster was placed in front of us came the Mongolian beef. This was the only item that tasted semi-decent, but I am not sure if that was just after having such awful other food. It was spicy as well which may have been masking things. At least we finished more than half of this plate.

This is when the chow mein came out, which caused me to start laughing. With no exaggeration at all, the chow mein had the texture of UNCOOKED Top Ramen. I asked her if it was some sort of joke as it was completely inedible, but she said to mix the sauce in to soften it. It wasnt even worth sending back, as I wasnt interested in getting another plate of it. We ended up taking it all home, and throwing away the chow mein immediately.

This place was a total waste of money and the worst meal in years and I will never return.

My friend and I was shopping in downtown area and was super hungry for a quick bit to eat. Then, the sales at Nordstorm suggested dim sum at O'Asian, both my friend and I never went there before and we both thought dim sum...can it be quick and good? We were both really surprised. Immediately after we sat down, we were greeted by the dim-sum-cart full of steaming hot food. The food was excellent and we were in and out in 30 mins. I highly recommend O'Asian for anyone who never have dim sum before and want to rethink quick lunch?!

I went to eat there for an afternoon lunch with my friend. The inside is really nice, this is a good place to have a group get together. I got seated in the booths its very comfortable! The waiters were pretty attentive, around noonish the carts start to slow down, I would suggest to get as much as you can earlier because there will most likely be a wait because it is crowded during dimsum hour. Great food and tea and service. I would go back again.

I have gone here with large parties on several occasions and had a wonderful time. The dining area is very large but still warm and friendly. Service has been great everytime as well. Although, I have a lot of compassion for our hospitality workers so I may overlook some of the minor flaws. The food is always wonderful, the drinks are put together well and served by a smiling staff. Highly recommend this place for friends and families.

The customer service is horrible! I work with the public and if I were to treat my clients the same way I wouldn't have any. I went there for an event and the hostess basically played dumb and had no information me. The bartender was extremely rude and would have rather chat with his buddy than make drinks and the coat check man threatened to not give our coats back because we didn't have a ticket which he didn't give us in the first place. Now why would anyone ever go to a place that obviously doesnt think they need your business.

If I had to rate my discontent with this establishment, O'Asian would receive a perfect rating. I am oddly surprised at the amount of bad reviews with emphasis being on service, though I shouldn't be. At first glance, expectations are high. Having being surrounded by the chaos of Seattle the restaurant manages to tuck itself away and hide from the rest of the world to create a calming ambiance. Looks are indisputably deceiving. My first experience will be my last and I will continue to encourage people to spend their money elsewhere. The staff is the eptiome of incompetence and was not at the least helpful or mindful toward their customers. The bartenders are apparently unaware how to train their new employess how to charge properly, address concerns, or ask for assistance when needed. Our waitress, Heather, will be brought up in conversation time and again as the worst thing to be associated with customer service. She was unattentive, rude, and constantly disappearing for most of the night. I especially enjoyed my birthday dinner as Heather made it her sole purpose to imply that my party was a nuisance to her. "You're ****ing killing me," was her response when we asked for our check to be split. To our dismay, after her unsavoring display she still was under the impression that she deserved a tip. Classy. We, as consumers, should be paid to eat there.

We decided to try O'Asian for dim sum on a Sunday afternoon. After looking at their online menu and enticed by the free parking, we were off! The location is easy to find and the elevator is quick to take you up to the restaurant. There weren't many people waiting and a fair amount of people already seated. We were seated promptly and tea and water soon followed. The carts were well stocked with all the popular dim sum items like baked hom bow, which seems to run out fast at the other dim sum restaurants. The waitstaff is very attentive and we didn't have to wait long for anything. I recommend this place over any place in Chinatown. It is unrushed and less conjested than other places in chinatown. The food is freshly served and there is something for everyone!

I am so disappointed that I went to O'Asian for my birthday party on 4/5/08. I called weeks in advance for my reservation. Not only was the service horrific, but they messed up on the orders, didn't have any menus for the first 25 minutes we were there. And they weren't busy! They had no Sake (for an Asian restaurant, that's ridiculous).One waitress spilled half a pitcher of water on my girlfriends lap and asked her if she wanted a napkin... way after the spill. To top the night off...I broke out in hives on my own bday b/c their food has MSG!

This by far was the WORST birthday/experience/service ever!!!! The waitress was sweet, but she messed up on the orders. I was so embarrassed to even recommend the place! Half of my party was upset by the service and we're shocked that I picked such a place. I will NEVER Go Back!!!!

it is interesting to see that other's have written about O'Asian's lousy service - unfortunately for me I wasn't even there long enough to try the food. we arrived very hungry, early on a saturday afternoon to take advantage of the happy hour menu. unfortunately, the bartender was in no hurry to help. in fact, we never actually saw him until I tried to find a menu for myself. at this point he was rude enough to override my hunger and curiosity - we left. not sure its worth it.

Great atmosphere and decore. I did love the food and not too pricey -- the portions are ideal for sharing in large groups of two/three +. But because the service was so horrible I give it 2 stars (I want to give 2.5)! I was in a party of 20 and we were practically the only ones there, but the waiter was scarce: people had to get up to serve their own water, we had to go to the bar to get our own drinks, and we had people running up to the kitchen and asking for service twice!!! Finaly a waitress that had been assigned to a small party in the corner had to come to help out! We did get free soup, but we take off the party gratuity/tip 'cause of the lack of sevice. One young server gave us something we didn't order and insisted it was ours!!!

Pros: Great decor, ambiance, price, food

It was not the kind of service that you would expect at a higher end restaurant. The food was extravagantly overpriced, though it came out quick and fashionable, if would had spent 5 more minutes making the presentation it would have made it 10 times better. Our food runner slopped the food down on the table, after just announcing what the food was, with blatant disregard for who ?Actually ordered the food ?. The decor was well placed, and the seating was ample, until about 9:45 they rudely removed the bar seating for the patrons who were seated at the bar, to make more room for the expected patrons that were beginning to lining up just inside the front door
.
Until that point atmosphere and mood was quite nice, the lighting was not harsh, the soft background music blended quite well it the chatter of dinner conversation; however the cliental was mostly upper middle class bar-goers, around this time they began setup of the ?discotheque?, and the lights began to flash, and I was blinded by the lighting, due to my seating placement. The check came, we paid in cash, and our server asked us if we need change back, we told her ?no?. She still brought back change, and was counting it out. The feel and atmosphere changed dramatically from nice formal and relaxed nihilistic dining to ?discotheque? seemed the most approachable time to take our leave of absence.

**Side note: the MENU and WEBSITE CLEARLY has printed prices and times, the ?happy hour? menu is 4pm until CLOSE. Since we were already closed out, we ordered one final beer from the bar, it was DOUBLE the price. When our server finally came back around, we asked about what the close time was then rudely stated that ?It must be your first time here! It is industry standard the ?close? time is 10pm!?
Having reviewed over 20 bars and restaurants in Seattle, I have never ever heard of that!

Over all below average, you can get better food and better service if you go the mom and pop teriyaki shop.

When our server finally came back around, we asked about what the close time was then rudely stated that ?It must be your first time here! It is industry standard the ?close? time is 10pm!?
Having reviewed over 20 bars and restaurants in Seattle, I have never ever heard of that!

Over all below average, you can get better food and better service if you go the mom and pop teriyaki shop.

Cons: no parking

Pros: nice nighuberhood

Cons: bad pepole works there

I went to lunch there last Saturday. The hostess is the rudest person I ever met! She was hostile and short. Not good for business. She must be a relative otherwise she should be fired! My lunch companion was there the previous week, and said the same hostess was rude to her as well and refused to bring their check to them. The bathroom has no hot water. So on a cold afternoon and you wash your hands, the water is ice cold. Oh and the food? Just mediocre. I've had much better dim sum.

I was looking for a place to have a drink after work in downtown and this is my new fav place! The bartenders are friendly and they have this unique and yummy beer Pandan Ale I haven't seen anywhere else before (It's the one with the Buddha handle).

I really not recomend this place. The food was bad. They were tried to steal my money over-charging me. It was an adventure, but not funny. Thanks O's Asian you won't see me again. Good luck guys

I'll tell you, it may be hidden up the escalators of the Bank of America building, but it's totally worth it once found. Dim sum is great, but has gotten busier and busier since i started coming. The best part, though, is the happy hour. On Sundays all the appetizers are only 2.50. You really can't beat it. The atmosphere is open and sheik and the bartender is super friendly. I can't believe more people aren't there. It's free parking on the weekends and they validate after 5:30 during the week. My favorite is the sesame beef and the lettuce wrap!

I went to our company dinner @ o'asian last thurs.Honestly,since it was paid by our company,I have no idea about the price for the dishes.Surprisely,I like the food,from a chinese point of view.I was very impressive about the plain steam chicken.very soft &very tasty, it is the only restaurant in seattle that makes the steam chicken in the "right" way!(I have been to Seattle for seven years only.).Kobe beef is a plus.its unbelivable soft&tast just right. Another good dish is chow mein. They use some kind of Shanghai noodle and stir fry it with soy sauce.its not oily/too soft but has a little bit chewy feeling. Im not very good at explaining since I speak "Chinglish", ha!. Wow, I didn't have the chance to tast other fusion dishes, all we had are traditional chinese dishes(our CEO,directors,and manager are all Chinese),so I would not known if they taste good /not, but I will recommanded the steam chicken, kobe beef and the chow mein without the price concerning. They are the three best dishes out of others that we had at that night.Quick comment on the service, um, not too bad.Since we came as a big group(around 30 ppl), it is not very easy for the servers to change the plates for us and noticed whose cup was running out of water/I think,as a professional server, he/she should not pass the wine glass unless you have the wine on hand &I would not think it is appropriate to pour two different bottle of wine in one wine glass(the waitress first brought out a bottle with a little big wine left&pour it into one glass,then ran back to get another new bottle of red wine and pour a little bit more into the same wine glass).Cuz who knows how long that "bottom bottle wine" had been sat there? Well, it just my little opinion, all I can say is, it is very hard to train the chinese server to be professional server unless they have been to the formal traning class.(look at those professional server in Hong Kong, New York upscale restaurant), ha! I am such a picky person.

Gave a birthdy dinner for a friend and the food was not very good. I have never been served fried rice with salmon. It was suppose to be unusual. You bet it was. The shark fin soup was a pumpkin thing that had very little shark fin and I really thought it was clear rice noodles being substituted. Unique and innovative? Not for what they charged. Very expensive. No thanks. Good luck to them.

The rennovation of the space is beautiful and it doesn't feel like a steak house anymore. The design is modern & comfortable. Dim Sum is good. THe carts come around frequently. However, the service for items off the dim sum cart and beverages is very slow. We went the whole meal without the cocktail we ordered whne we first sat down.

I went to this restaurant in the first month it opened for dim sum. It was over-priced and mediocre. I commented on one of the dishes tasting unusual to the waitress. Her reply after she talked to the kitchen staff was the special seafood that was added that no one else uses. Well my thought is that they used a cheap substitute ingredient.

When they opened their web-site made a claim "the best dim sum in Seattle" How can that be when they just opened and their are no references to the food critic that made that statement. I e-mailed the web-site for comment back then however there was no reply.

I noticed that their web-site still makes that claim and now their are some reviews of how great this place is. What are these reviews based upon? Great dim sum is found in Vancouver Canada. O'asian does not come close.

I went there again to see if things have changed. No, it is still mediocre. The ambience is nice however I want good Chinese food. My comparison would be that of Hong Kong's restaurants. This is another P.F. Chang style restaurant with a fancy ambience trying to attract upscale diners however only serving mediocre "chinese" food.

I am thinking that what prices are over?
The price of the dim Sum there is cheaper than Top Gun.
I feel that the price is wonderful in this luxury place.

The food is very good but is is the fact that the currnetly run happy hour from 4 PM to close, 7 days a week in the bar that makes this place briliant.

It is the best happy hour in town--- $5 huge plates, $3 on all beers plus more drink specials. They have had trouble filling the huge restaurant but it is worth going simply to sit in the bar. A buddy and I got nice and stuffed the other day on the $5 apps and each had 3 beers or $20-something dollars a piece. Good value.

Not recommended for dinner. None of the three meals we ordered were worth the money: papaya salad (too much fish sauce), strawberry sweet-and-sour (decent but not remarkable given the price) and hand-shaved noodles (a fusion attempt that failed to produce flavor). Drinks were good, but a bit pricey. Ambience and service were both impressive, which unfortunately made our food all the more disappointing. Go and grab a drink, but avoid the overpriced dinner fare.

tasty tasty eats at o'asian! the service was quick, the food was hot and fresh! we had bbq pork buns, chinese broccoli, honey walnut prawns--- it was great. out of the nine dishes we had, the only thing i was unimpressed with was the chow mein. my friend had the tapioca pudding that was a little dry. the only downside for me was that the bathroom needed tending to: wet countertops & paper towels on the floor. i was happy w/ the food and the prices. will go back again soon for yummy dim sum!

Pros: dim sum, hot, fast, fresh

.

The only semi ediable were the potstickers and bbq pork. If it wasen't for those we surely would have starved. Even the drinks were weak and three times over priced. The honey walnut prawns tasted like fried shrimp topped with miracle whip.The only recommendation I have given anyone about O Asian is do not waste your money. I was really excited to go there and boy it was a huge dissapointment. I guess next year we will spend our anniversary somewhere we know is excellent.

Kobe Beef with Black Bean Sauce? Why use Chinese ketchup on such expensive and tasty meat?
But that's how O'Asian tries to be innovative. Not a good sign. Take the greatest hits of Asian food (as defined by non-Asians), add a few Asian variations on the latest hot dishes, and that's O'A's menu.

And some dishes, such as the 3 spice chicken in clay pott, can be had elsewhere for half the price. Beef satay, at 5 bucks for 2 pieces, is also pricey.

Dim sum is average at best. The phoenix claws were a bit undercooked and small, the shanghai dumplings were dry, and the shrimp dumplings tasted 15 minutes too old. Small dim sum selection, possibly because it doesn't attract a large enough crowd for Sat dim sum.

It does have a different feel from your typical Chinese restaurant. Service is a bit more sophisticated (but still not so), decor isn't as tacky, portions are more reasonable (smaller).

The place is just so amazing once you get inside. The whole decor is very modern and hip. We sat in the bar area. All the seats and tables are very nice and different varities of chairs/tables all around the restaurant. This would be a GREAT place to eat as a group like for a birthday party. We had two appetizers which were the veggie tempura and the salad wraps. Too be honest, tempura was not good at all and pretty mushy, not crunchy. But the salad wraps were AWESOME. You may need to ask for extra lettuce when ordering this dish!

I would love to come here next time to the dim sum! Make sure you come during happy hour. I believe happy hour is all day on weekends and 5-midnight (not definate) on the weekdays. Service is excellent and seem to care about customers satisfaction.

OH MY HEAVENS!!! This place is so great that everyone needs to try it out! I have had Dim Sum about 4 times now and I have been in the Lounge for happy hour many many times and I am telling you this place not only has a great staff, but the food and drinks are amazing. Happy hour is the happiest because it starts when I am off work and lasts all night! You have to try it! Plus the atmosphere/decor is beautiful, very upscale and swanky. I love it!

Getting to O'Asian can be quite the adventure. First coming down 5th you'll need to turn up the street before the building so that you can turn into the parking structure on Colombia St (one way the wrong way from 5th). Once inside, go up to the Plaza "P" level. This will make sense to you when you get down there. The food was good, but I found the selection to be limited at 2:00pm on Saturday afternoon. My usual Dim sum place is Jade Garden in the ID and I somewhat miss the hustle and bustle. The Dim at O'asian was very good, and the service very attentive and friendly. I'll come back some evening, now that I can find my way there, to sample the Chinese food.

I read several reviews about this place and decided to try it. I have been back twice. Dim Sum here is really good. I am Chinese American and am always curious when a Chinese restaurant is touted as authentic. This is good dim sum. There are a lot of choices and very quick so for business lunches, it is perfect. The food is fresh and they carry all the standard dim sum fare and a lot of other specials. I would definitely recommend this place.

We went there the other night and really enjoyed our dinner. Chinese food, but with a modern upscale twist. Everything was very fresh and very good. As mentioned before, the service was a tad amateurish, but it was quick. We ate so much our stomachs hurt! Really delicious inovative food. Would definitely go back again and I really want to try it for lunch sometime. The setting is very modern, but not uncomfortably so, done in an understated way (blacks, browns, with splashes of red).

From all of the reviews my wife and I decided to try out this hip looking resturant. I first would like to say that when you experience something great you remember it, but when it's bad you never forget it. The experience was good, not great, but good. I'm going to give you 3 points that struck me.

1. Food: Well presented, great quality, very fresh and beautiful to look at (it helps). I ordered the 5 course meal. You get to choose from various dishes at different prices within a group. I felt is was a nice selection and worth it. As for the main course, I must agree with one of the reviewers regarding the deveining of the shrimp. I was DISGUSTED to have broken, left over black veins in my shrimp. I ended up having to pull them out myself. They lost huge points on that alone. Everything else was good. My wife is a vegetarian and was disappointed with the selection. You think chinese, they must have an assortment of dishes...Wrong. They have 2 only. Her dishes rather bland.

2. Service: Our waitress was very nice and honest. Though the turn around time for our food was extremely slow. So slow, I had to remind the waitress that I had not received my entree yet after my wife was close to being done with her food. So much for eating together. Maybe they were busy you think, nope, not at all. I think there was a total of 6 couples and one group in the resturant. Bad service typically warrants a free drink or dessert. But no one told them that.

3. Decor: Top notch decor. Even though it's in an office building you don't realize it when you're there.

So I recommend it for trying but don't stray to far from you regular spot.

I've been eating dim sum since I was young, and O asian really impressed me. Its definately a upscale chinese restaurant. I felt like I was in Las Vegas dining in one of their many Chinese restaurants, and thats a lot to say for The "Greater" Seattle Chinese restaraunts. The dim sum was great. Just PACE yourselves as the ladies bombard you with different dishes. Dont be scared. To me it just feels like home when my mother used to push food onto my already full plate. An advise I can give is to keep your head down and dont look at them in the eye or they'll come at you like a hurricane with a cart full of food (unless your really hungry). Be Bold, and try different dishes each time you come. The prices are pretty good as well ranging from (S)2.50 -(L) 6.50. You also know how much you are spending each time you get a plate from the card they give you. Dim sum for three of us was around 50 bucks and we had over 15 plates of food. What can I say, we like to eat. I cant wait till next week, definately going to be a tradition my friends and family will be making. Enjoy!!

O'Asian is Seattle's hidden gem at the bottom of the enormous Bank of America tower. Being a new restaurant I was skeptical of another "Wild Ginger", but O'Asian took on a whole other approach to upscale asian dining. There popular Dim Sum during lunch hours was very busy right away. The dinner crowds didn't come in droves right away, but they are missing out. With very authentic Chinese dishes you can't go wrong. The bar offers up a delightful array of inspired cocktails. Some of which I have never seen anywhere before. Try the tasty Zen Apple or the Heaven on Earth. Overall I hope this restaurant does well as I will be going there again and again.

The dim sum here is excellent, the only thing being that sometimes the staff can be a little over-playing the chinese "customs" and "ways". I am asian and the most of the staff are not, and still try to educate me on the fine art of eating dim sum. Please, I've been eating dim sum and Chinese food before most of them were born. There tea service is laugable, simple Chinese gestures and common courtesy are made to seem like a ceremony. Tone down on the "Asianess" and elevate the service. The dim sum menu needs also to be better than Top Gun's in Bellevue. Whom are the same owners. Shrimp also should be fully inspected to insure they have been devein properly. Overall dim sum is good.

I am asian and the most of the staff are not, and still try to educate me on the fine art of eating dim sum. Please, I've been eating dim sum and Chinese food before most of them were born. There tea service is laugable, simple Chinese gestures and common courtesy are made to seem like a ceremony. Tone down on the "Asianess" and elevate the service. The dim sum menu needs also to be better than Top Gun's in Bellevue. Whom are the same owners. Shrimp also should be fully inspected to insure they have been devein properly. Overall dim sum is good.

I was craving dim sum today, and had read many bad reviews on various sites regarding other dim sum restaurants around the Seattle area. Because this restaurant was new, there was only one review, yet I decided to give it a try. Our seating was prompt, and the staff was friendly. Immediately we were offered many choices in regards to dim sum, and we definitely had a try at everything we could get our hands on. My other half is a BIG eater, and even HE was stuffed! Not only was the food authentic, but it seemed like this truly attracted an Asian crowd (which is always a good sign at an Asian restaurant!). We left, only $30 poorer, and with full bellies. I am now considering hosting my upcoming birthday at O'Asian. They are truly off to a great start!

In Short
The sprawling, cavernous dining room might be set back from the street in an office building, but the inside is far from corporate. Sleek stylized furniture and traditional Asian accents enhance the modern black-and-red…
