The Best Asian Restaurants in NYC

Published: November 28, 2013

This list gives readers a look at some of the best asian restaurants that New York City has to offer. These include authentically asian, modern fusion asian, and classic asian restaurants. The price ranges from very high to not costly at all.


    This restaurant is one of the newer restaurants that serve modern asian cusines. It takes insiprations from other cuisines such as french and spanish food. It is in a fun popular downtown location and serves amaziing food, although it is a bit pricey, you'll get your moneys worth.

  2. TAO

    This is one of the most popular asian fusion restaurants available in New York City. This restaurant serves a mix of chinese mixed with french inspired cuisines and this place also serves as a hip night club with promotions everyday. I recommend the giant fortune cookie for dessert, you won't be dissapointed.

  3. Spice Market

    This is a modern asian inspired restaurant that primarily features food from Thailand and other parts of south east asia. There is inspiration taken from french cuisine. The decor of this restaurant is amazing and rooms are dark and warmly lit. Private dining is available for large parties!

  4. Xi'an Famous Foods

    If you are looking for amazing food, but don't want to break your wallet doing so then Xi'an Famous Foods is the perfect mix of taste and low price available to you. The restaurant's cumen lamb burger is a must try as long as it's cold noodles with spicy sauce.

  5. Joe's Shanghai

    One of the most popular authenic chinese restaurants located in the heart of New York City's Chinatown. There is always a line forming outside of this restaurant as everyone wants to try the famous soup dumplings that are served daily here. The scallion pancakes are also a must try.

The best on this list in my opinion is Xi'an famous foods. Every food item on this restaurant's menu has a great taste and won't break your wallet. As a poor college student back in the day, I use to visit this place almost everyday to get the delicious food this restaurant serves.
