Our son goes to college in this area and had heard great things about this restaurant. We went up for his birthday and enjoyed eating here. The menu is huge and we ordered the Pho w seafood, Hibachi chicken and Hibachi shrimp and scallop meals. My son had the Taro Bubblemilk Tea. The dishes were very large and I shared... More

Saw this restaurant driving by. They have a good menu with many dishes that you would expect to find however there are many dishes that are unique and if we lived closer we would go back to try. We tried the steamed hocks which were tasty, tender and which included two large hocks. There was a good eggplant dish and... More

I eat here often. I highly suggest the crab and corn chowder soup, fish filet In Hunan Chili Oil and a hot pot of either cabbage, cauliflower or broccoli. This is family style portions so a small bowl of soup will feed 4. DO NOT ORDER the American Chinese foods ( sweet and sour chicken, moo goo gai pan, etc)... More

We had a lovely dinner for a family celebration. Our waiter was personable, and efficient. We ordered family style meals and had fun at one of the big round tables passing the dishes along by way of a LARGE lazy susan. Food was good and traditional. Recommend the crab wonton...delicious!

I pains me to even give Asia Kitchen an "average" rating vs. a "poor" rating . . . I suppose since a year ago I had several fab meals there on successive days. But, chefs come and go. This trip was for lunch, while all the others were for dinner. Maybe the top chef doesn't work lunches. Tried only three... More

If you walk in for dinner the first thing you will notice is very large groups of Asian's having dinner. They know authentic and after almost 9 years in China I think I do to. This place is wonderful. They have many Americanized dishes but traditional favorites my Chinese wife just loved. We try to go as often as we... More

I would love to give this restaurant excellent because the food certainly was, but other categories did not warrant that. However, please try this place if you want truly authentic Chinese and other Asian cuisine.

Finally found a restaurant in Knoxville that serves pho! My BF and I have been craving it forever and didn't know where to get it. The bowls they serve it in are huge, and they give you a big plate of extras like mung beans, jalapenos, and Thai basil to add to your soup. Also they have several different flavors... More

We have eaten here a few times now and the food is always good. Seems to be very authentic. Language can be a slight barrier and the menu could use a bit more description but chances are you'll like what you get. The crab wontons and egg rolls are excellent.

Asia Kitchen has by far the best, most authentic Chinese restaurant in Knoxville. I went today for lunch. The place was the most crowded I have ever seen it...and most of the crowd was young Asians filling the large round tables....a very good sign for a Chinese restaurant. There is a lunch menu with about 20 items in the $6-8... More
