Located within walking distance of several arts venues. Usually no wait. Food is uneven as a prior reviewer noted. Portions are consistently decent considering its DC. It's not the best Asian food but its decent and if in area give it a try.

We stumbled upon this place for lunch. The sushi was awesome, so was the pad thai. There was a hair in my water glass, which kind of grossed me out but our server was very apologetic. I know these things happen. We will be back!

We came here before a show, and everything was as it should be. Courteous and prompt service, hot food, good ambiance. Happy hour is a pretty good value before theater..

Asia Nine’s design draws inspiration from different Asian cultures.Jewel tones and rich woods envelop guests with a warm and exotic atmosphere. A glowing washi paper sculpture illuminates the backwall, appealing to the curious spirits of guests. Facing the front window on a raised floor is Asia Nine’s sushi and oyster bar decked out with wood elements, enticing red tile accents, and custom painted tables and bar top. In the main dining area, slate tiles in shades of silver, grey and black cover the floor and compliment dark walnut tables and chairs, seating 100. A long spring green tile bar, seating55, flanks the right side of the room with a bamboo forest background highlighted with a steel waterfall. Directly across the room are large banquettes, wrapped in bamboo with a floating trellis overhead. Just past the banquettes and up the stairs is a cozy lounge, known as the VIP room, complete with a full bar and seating 40.
