Sushi, Chinese and Thai dishes the buffet table served menu offers great value and allows you to try a range of dishes and eat until you are content. Friendly service. Great for families. Price vs value top marks.

Ate at this restaurant twice on our recent holiday in Nerja. Food was delicious on both occasions. Prompt service & reasonable prices. Don't be put off by the low key appearance.

We ordered buffet all six peoble in my family. We ordred from the buffet menu card, and we got it fresh made, so there is no buffet table. We ordred severel times. They got chinese, thai and japaneese shusi food. Very tasty. Been here at Asian Been 5 times now. The interior is typical chinese, but food is good! :-)

Thank KrikAndCW
