Sky Asian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
This was my first experience at Sky Asia ...
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.
It was just OK...nothing was spectacular ...
It was just OK...nothing was spectacular about this food. I believe the chilean sea bass and the miso glaze salmon we ordered were both right from the freezer… Just didn't seem to be very fresh or high quality seafood...not a place for foodies.

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.
Great service, good sushi, and interesti ...
Great service, good sushi, and interesting desert. They served all our sushi on 2 big plates which wasn't exciting having to reach across each other.. the server was great although the other waitstaff was a bit rude to her in front of us.
food was great, but..
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.
I little disappointed
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.
Best sushi we've found in town
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.
New Asian Food in Charlotte!!
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.
Where to go on Christmas for Dinner
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 sush ...
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.
Great hidden gem!
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.
Excellent food and appropriate service
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.
Will definitely be back
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.
Primarily a Sushi Restaurant
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.
Great atmosphere with soft lighting and plenty of space between tables. Reservations were a must since it was Valentine's Day, but the service was great. We were served by the bartender, who was constantly busy, but still were able to have a great time. I would definitely recommend Sky Asian Bistro because of the atmosphere and the menu choices.
Nice Asian Experience
The restaurant was spacious with an upscale casual ambience. We had a roomy elevated circular corner table for 3 people. The food was better than expected. Tempura vegetable appetizer as well as crab lobster rangoon dip were very good. Royal Dish was delicious served sizzling on a special platter. Dessert of Key Lime Pie was notably delicious also. Would definitely return to try more dishes here. Our server Vivian was excellent!
This is what I call true "Asian Fusion." The entrees are unique, inventive, and inspired by cuisines all over Asia. Sky definitely caters to the American palette, so if you are looking for truly authentic Asian cuisine, this is not for you. I love that you can have a conversation at Sky without shouting. It's great for a romantic dinner or entertaining clients. The appetizers were awesome. I had the thai calamari. My husband got the tuna and avocado. Both were very good. I got the sea bass entree which didnt look very appetizing when it was served, but it tasted good. I'll try the sushi rolls next time. I saw some coming out of the kitchen and they are HUGE. Based on the freshness of the Tina appetizer, my guess is the sushi is a safe bet. The hostess and server were warm and attentive, but not overly present; just right.
Great food and service.
The food and service were both great. I highly recommend the crab dip appetizer. The only suggestion for improvement I have would be to change the music mix from the 80s/90s pop mix you currently have to have more current mix. The music didn't seem to match the atmosphere (and it was so loud that it certainly couldn't be missed.)
