Sky Asian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Honestly if the food wasn't delicious we would have left. We were left at our table after being seating and checked on about 15-20 later. The place wasn't even busy. Not sure if they are understaffed or have poor time management. The waitress oplogized but then left and still didn't even give us a water while waiting. If it wasn't for good friends to chat with, we would have left for sure. Once she finally returned we ordered some drinks and everything all at once- as we choose the restaurant week menu options. The food came out- all tasting delicious.. not quite worth such a long wait.. but nothing we ordered wasn't excellent. Hopefully this was only a one time occurrence with the staff, otherwise this place won't make it due to poor service.. a lot off people would have complained or got up and walked out!
The service was slow. The food was edible.. It was just OK. I had a stir fried dish with beef, chicken and shrimp and my husband had the general tso chicken and we both had the same opinion about the food. It was a Saturday night so I expected the ambiance to be lively but it was very quiet. I probably wouldn't visit again but not because it was terrible. It's just not up to the standards that I have for a restaurant.
I think this was a nice restaurant, but nothing outstanding. Some of the food we had was great like the firecracker ball appetizer, but the meat for our main meal of Korean short ribs and royal dish was chewy. The lomein noodles were delicious. Our server was very nice and well trained. When I asked for a crown and coke I got a we just ran out instead of we don't actually carry that at the bar. The inside is clean, but somehow has more of a casual dining feel than a high-end sushi restaurant. We didn't have the sushi, but it looked good coming out on other plates. We'll try that the next time we come here.
Great food and service... To be honest there is no one thing wrong with this restaurant. The food is wonderful but it's overpriced even during queens feast. The service was fine. Perfectly friendly waitress who was attentive and pleasant but the place was practically empty on a Saturday at 7:30pm and it really made us wonder why until we got the bill and realized that the two of us had just paid $80 for chinese food with 1 glass of house wine and 1 beer and that was before the tip. So $100 by the time we walked away which just seemed a little pricey for what it was and the location but hey if you don't mind paying too much for Chinese food this is a quick place to get into on a Saturday night when other places are packed. Maybe they could pull this off uptown or in a little nicer area without anyone flinching about price but if you really want good Chinese food in a great atmosphere and don't mind paying for it Wong Fu is right down the street and much nicer for your money.
The outside was very overgrown in need of some TLC. When we walked in I was pleasantly surprised by the decor, although there was a bad smell inside. The food was average at best. Calamari was in strips and honestly tasted fake. Only bright side was dessert, very good chocolate lava cake and cheesecake. Won't be back, food was not tasty.
This was my first experience at Sky Asian Bistro. My fiends and I always meet during Queens Feast and opted to make reservations at Sky. We had a 7:30 reservation. The restaurant had only s few cars in parking lot and maybe 5 tables were occupied. Overall decor was disappointing. The front door glass panels were streaky. The ambiance is "so so", could use a renovation in decor. The menus are dirty and have a odor. The booth we were in is very uncomfortable, because the seat is too far away from table, and put strain on my back.
The menu selection is however good. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and very thorough. She let us enjoy each course with no rush. The value is reasonable and the food very good. I would be more apt to return if ambiance and some improvements in areas I sited are addressed and taken care of.
My friend and I recently dined here and found the food to be very tasty. She ordered Spicy General Tso's Chicken and I ordered the Spicy Basil Thai. Both were good. Not “wow let’s go back asap fantastic”, but good. The service was fine. The server was kind but didn’t check on us much. I would return if someone else wanted to go; but I might suggest this place get a bit more creative with the menu and have cheerier servers. It’s not that she was unhappy, just ok. I’m in the industry myself, so I know how much difference a simple smile can make.
food was great! The only downside was the slow service. I made an 8pm reservation Friday night and the hostess had to run and clean the table which took close to 10 mins.
They only had 2 waiters working about 10 tables, which caused the service to be slow. We sat for over 10 mins before someone came to take our drink order and then another 10 mins after to get our drinks.
I've never been here before, so to be fair this could have been a fluke.
I liked the food very much though
We were there for Restaurant Week and was so disappointed after reading some of the good reviews. Although the waitress was friendly, we waited an hour for our food. When it arrived, it was so salty (had the sea bass).
May try the restaurant again to see if their regular menu is better.
While the food was very good and the choices unique, I tried this restaurant for the first time as part of the Charlotte Restaurant Week event. When I arrived at the table, I discovered that the restaurant had changed to menu that was advertised on the Festival website lower the amount of sushi roll choices being offered from two to one. That turned a great value to a good value.
What an improvement.
We tried Sky when they first opened, and it was so-so. But we gave it another shot a couple of weeks ago, then again on New Year's Eve. The service and sushi were both terrific.
The Panther Roll, the Alaska Roll, Sky roll, Bombay, and Man Overboard were all excellent. Bombay was our favorite.
Sky Asian has taken the typical Asian restaurant by a mall and stepped it up one step. The Food shines. The ambiance is well different. I have never seen so much open space in a restaurant, is that good, maybe maybe not. If you want a step up from the cheap take out Asian restaurants you have been going to for years, then go to Sky Asian.
I was out of ideas, so I did a search on Open Table. Sky Asian came up, and we realized that we have never tried it, so we did
Wow, were we pleasantly surprise. Excellent menu.The good was great
We were sat in the back, so we felt slightly ignored, but once the food came, all was forgiven.
We are going to make sure that we return.
Great place for reasonable food and sushi! Been a few times and the food and service is great. Need to market their business more to gain more customers. It's usually somewhat empty which some may find disappointing if they're looking for a great atmosphere. The bar is usually empty which may contribute to the low atmosphere.
Sky Asian Bistro was a delicious discovery!! They have a great Asian menu with lots of choices!! The sushi is some of the best in the Charlotte area and the service was impeccable! The restaurant has a great ambiance perfect for a quiet date night or a fun night out with friends. The bar is beautiful but sadly this place was pretty empty for a Friday night. It's located near several great restaurants but on a side street off the main road and difficult to find if you aren't looking for it. Great place and highly recommend!
There was a group of 7 for dinner and all of us enjoyed our dishes. Several had sushi, which was very good. Fish was fresh and the rolls were unique. One person had Kobe beef that was outstanding. Another had a Japanese dish that was very tasty. We went on a Thursday night, so bottles of wine listed at $40 and under were 1/2 price. The wine list was very good, so of course we took advantage of the special.
Service for the 7 of us was very good. Food came promptly and the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu.
All in all, I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was excellent and the service is appropriate, not constantly coming by or forgetting all about you. My wife and I were able to talk and be together with our waitress only coming by when it was needed. The food was fresh, prepared properly and and matched our expectations. We would both recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The host was waiting for us when we arrived (our reservation was for time they opened on Mothers Day to avoid crowds). It was our first time there-- the host and the waitress were MORE than helpful. They assisted us with decision making, made sure we had wonderful service and the food was fabulous. Very generous portions.
The first thing they tell you is that their primary business is sushi, and they do an excellent job. The house rolls are very innovative and enormous. Come with a big appetite.
The sushi and sashimi combo plate we got was overshadowed by how good the rolls were. If you are going to order rolls, I suggest against the combo and vice versa.
Overall a very good experience.
