Asian dining literally step above rest

By: Takeshi Yokokawa

Date Posted: 2004-01-15

The most remarkable thing about restaurant called Asian Dining is that is literally a step above the rest, as it is nested within a huge manmade banyan tree that can't help but catch your eye on Highway 331 across from Naha Military Port. Available at this unique eatery are dishes from Indonesia, China, Korea, the Philippines, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Okinawa.

There are eight set menus to choose from at lunchtime including Korean cold noodles, Indonesian nasi goreng and Thai curry, with prices ranging from 650 to 950. The atmosphere of Asian Dining changes dramatically to that of a Japanese-style bar (izakaya) after 5:00 p.m., when appetizers and alcoholic beverages are served as well as regular dinner fare. A large number of appetizers with prices starting at 180 are available. The most popular are a Korean barbeque dish called bibimba grilled over hot stones, fried beef and broccoli with oyster sauce and spring rolls. The friendly English-speaking staff will be happy to answer any questions.

The terrace outside offers a splendid view of sunsets that turn in the night very romantic, with the town's neon lights dancing on the water. The roomy interior has an Asian atmosphere and is a perfect place to sit back and relax for a few hours.

Asian Dining is open daily. Lunch is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and teatime runs from 3 to 5 p.m. Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. on weekdays and from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and on days before national holidays. The restaurant accepts major credit cards, and an English language menu is available.

From Naha City, take Route 58 towards Naha Airport. Immediately after crossing the Meiji Bridge, you will see a huge manmade banyan tree on the left, standing next to a torii gate. Asian Dinning is nested up on the tree. Call Asian Dining at 098-859-6530 for more information and reservations.
