Azie on Main
Posted by Food God on 11/27/2011
Went there on a Saturday night and what can I say, what restaurant isn't loud, busy, and energetic then? If you're looking for a quite place check it out on the weekdays. I'm sure that's more of your cup of tea. Over all this restaurant is legit. It offers what you see with no hidden surprises. The menu is quite large in my opinion with lots of selection and fresh sushi. However the menu could use some "adventurous" stuff for some people but I'm guessing the main crowd here is older mainline folks that eat chicken, salmon or pad thai. Nothing wrong with that, but if you're looking for cod sperm, blow fish, or anything of that nature look elsewhere. This menu is for the general crowd but very good in what it does. All in all I'd go back again because it's semi close, free parking, cool decor, good service, solid menu, and you don't have to deal with traffic on 76!! In closing and in response to the previous post, I myself love bread and cold butter with salt before my meal. NEVER do I expect to get bread, especially in an Asian inspired restaurant. If you want bread, go to Acme and buy some. If you want Gourmet bread go to Le bus.

Umm? What is going on here? A kiddy bebop place o the ground floor and above a stuffy, Asian Fusion Restaurant, which is gaudy and post modern, all at the same time. You really do not get much on your plate for the prices they are offering. There seems to be specials, but if you do not get there early enough, they will have ran out of the specials. From soup to nuts and sushi in between this place is shameful. The service is deplorable and the management seems aloof and uncaring. This place is no POD or MORIMOTO. It pretends to be, but at least make a better effort if that's how high you are shooting. The food comes in such odd servings, as someone at the table could be served their main dish, while another is being served their sushi course. So my friend will be just getting their main course, when I am finished and thinking of maybe coffee or dessert. I had gone in again recently. This other couple, just had to try the place and we thought maybe things had changed in half a year, but NO: nothing has changed at all. Oh, BTW, the place doesn't offer bread on the table because they are schizophrenic and think they are from Japan. I'm not from Japan and I like dinner rolls.

I just had lunch here at the recommendation of a friend. The food was so phenomenal, I ended up ordering a second Philly Roll. The Philly Roll looks like a regular sushi roll with shrimp inside and paper thin beef (cooked) over the top with a gruyere sauce and eel sauce. SOOOO GOOOD! I found the prices really good for the level of ambience, service and quality of food. To give you any idea, the former restaurant was rumored to have spent nine million dollars to build out the space (plus the downstairs which is not a part of Azie.) The sushi rolls were mostly under $10, except the super big rolls. All of the food here was incredibly delicious, I will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful dinner on a Sunday night. Oysters,halibut and miso black cod. All were delicious and the service was great. Our waiter was pleasant, helpful and very personable. Prices were average for a good restaurant. We look forward to going back again.

The service was not terrible but the food is extremely overpriced and not excellent. The steak i ordered was 95% fat, over seasoned, and not edible. I sent the steak back and they refused to take the steak off of the bill. I will NEVER return to azie on main.

We stumbled onto Azie on their opening night -- a fiercely stormy Friday night that almost discouraged us from exiting the car. But we were later VERY glad that we did -- the food was terrific (best calamari tempura with chile sauce, ever, anywhere; melt-in-your mouth salmon, delightful rendition of a cheescake that is better than a cheesecake (!), and beautifully presented. The service was smooth, without being overly solicitous. We were later suprised to find that it was opening night, as the coordination was quite smooth. The only minor negatives: we were first seated at a small table with only a votive to light it -- not enough light for the menu -- so we asked to be moved to the periphery, where there was good lighting. I think the lighting issue was likely a 'first night' phenomenon -- as additional ambient lighting is adjustable (they were tweaking it later in the meal). The miso soup was slightly too salty (even for miso!) -- but all the other dishes were really wonderful. If the quality is maintained, this restaurant will be a serious competitor for Nectar - and the prices are a bit kinder!

We were seated in the cocktail room where we were supposed to have a full dining menu on a small table with large prices. We had a reservation yet they chose to put us in the cocktail room the one without tablecloths, we did not really mind thinking that there will be other people sitting in that room as well, but, no, everyone else was seated in the main dining room. Our waitress the most pushy person, and patronizing too. And to top it all very high prices as in New York prices but on the second level in a flag lot next to Staples in Suburban Philadelphia. I was very disappointed and I was hoping I could send an e mail to the manager so I don't have to post this. It is unfortunate to say that we probably will not visit you again...
