DC-Area Asian Restaurants

Washington, DC and its surrounding suburbs offer a wide selection of Asian cuisine.


Recommend the Chinese section of this Palisades restaurant. It serves generally average Asian food but is good for delivery if you live nearby.


Asian-influenced vegetarian restaurant located in a decidedly un-scenic Vienna strip mall. Ignore the setting and dig into the food.


Old-school Clarendon restaurant off of Wilson Blvd. You'll get a solid Vietnamese meal that won't break the bank.


Boasts a vegetarian-friendly menu that's heavily influenced by Korean cuisine. Located in Takoma Park and good for brunch (though crowded).


White table cloths and attentive service at Georgetown's eastern edge. Especially cosy in winter and good for dates.


Offers the standard Thai menu but a welcome addition to the Herndon/Reston area.


Despite the lackluster decor, a good place to try Burmese cuisine and a good place for groups.


Modern-decor sushi bar north of Georgetown near Whole Foods. I recommend sitting at the bar and watching the chefs at work.


Peaceful Chinese teahouse in the heart of Georgetown. Great for relaxing and chatting with friends though probably better for afternoon tea than as a sit-down lunch location.


Non-traditional dim sum place just north of Chinatown. Think Asian-themed small plates (mezze) and evening cocktails rather than mid-morning dim sum. Open floor space with tables for groups.
