Tien - Traditional Asian Dining Ratings and Reviews
This is an unusually good pan-Asian rest ...
This is an unusually good pan-Asian restaurant. A nice, varied selection of apps and entrees. Wine and, especially sake, are strong points. Service is also strong, although servers' knowledge is not uniform. Weeknights generally are quiet, but unfortunately, they allow not only older children but babies as well (otherwise, it would warrant five stars). What normally would have been an enjoyable visit with quiet conversation was ruined by a crying baby that was allowed to interrupt all diners, while management (attentive in every other way) did nothing to resolve the situation. The restaurant management needs to decide what kind of reputation they want. Is Tien a sophisticated, relaxing restaurant for adults (as the food, wine, and service suggest), or is it a McDonald's?
I had the crispy duck lettuce wrap appet ...
I had the crispy duck lettuce wrap appetizer (skip the regular Hoisin sauce that they give you - it's too heavy for this dish). I then ordered the Lobster Fried Rice - delicious taste, but I was expecting more lobster - not just leg meat (literally). For my entree, I opted for the Miso Seared Scallops that came with a "beurre blanc" sauce. The sauce was loaded with Chinese Five Spice and all I could taste was a massive amount of star anise. Asian fusion is one thing - calling this sauce a beurre blanc was not quite true.
I loved my miso pear martini - asked for another to go and never received it. The waiter was eager to take my bill and tip and then said he'd open another ticket for a drink. Don't bother. I'll go up to my room and open a good bottle of German Riesling. :/
Given, I look quite young, but I've lived all over the world and I love to try new cuisines... however; Tien didn't do much for me. I paid $70 for my meal and left a $40 tip... for service that wasn't the best and food that fell short of my flavor expectations. Believe it or not, room service was a far better value (and the food tasted better!!) - so I probably will not be attempting any other "fine dining" at the IP Biloxi.

On my latest trip to Biloxi I chose Tien as a restaurant where I would be meeting friends for a meal. We had the won ton soup which is always excellent and piping hot, as I like it. Appetizer was Korean tacos which were quite good and different. Main course was the Teryaki grile which was a selection of grilled chicken breast, grilled shrimp and grilled steak as well as a large portion of Asian vegetables, all covered in teryaki sauce and served with white rice. It was delicious, although I have to admit, a little salty for my taste but not enough to detract from the flavor of the grilled protein and vegetables. Service was excellent, as usual. Recommended.

I was preparing to write a letter to Imperial Palace about our stay there. We actually had dinner at Tien 8/10/2016 and 8/11/2016. 8/11 is my fiance Michael's birthday. Our waiter, Zack, took care of us both nights. He was professional and assisted in every way he could. My son is a "5 star" waiter therefore I know and expect good service. Zack covered all our needs. The food was very good and the prices acceptable. I will recommend Tien to all our friends and associates.

Very disappointed in the bar service, it took more than 35 minutes to get our first beverages. The server was slow, but appeared to be providing service in different areas of the restaurant. The restaurant wasn't busy when we initially got there, but more people arrived after 5:45 p.m.
I decided to dine @ Tien for my birthday ...
I decided to dine @ Tien for my birthday and was startled to see that the menu had almost completely changed since my last visit there. One of my favorite appetizers, squid salad w/daikon radishes, was no longer on the menu. However, there were a number of items which had replaced this and other old favorites. I ordered the calamari w/Thai chili sauce which was excellent, as I would have expected. I ordered a new item for our entree.... a fried seafood platter but done TEMPURA style. It was terriffic.... fresh fish, shrimp, oysters and an incerdibly delicious crab cake, served with hot, freshlly made combination fried rice and three sauces. We thoroughly enjoyed that and it was definitely enough for 2 people to share. The manager came over to our table to ask how everything was, as she usually does. I was honest, saying that while what we ordered was delicious, I was disappointed that the squid salad was no longer available. She said that it had been taken off of the menu but because she knew I always ordered it every time I dine there, went to see of the chef would make it for me. I was pleasantly surprised when it was delivered to my table, exactly as it always had been before, with the daikon radish/carrot salad on the side, a lemon wedge, a cherry tomato cut in half and rings of jalapeno peppers. THIS is the mark of a GREAT restaurant. Not only is the quality of the food outstanding, but the SERVICE and CARING of the staff to accomodate my special request is something which is difficult to find at restaurants nowadays. Not at Tien.... they went above and beyond to make me happy and I did NOT mention that it was my birthday to the manager, so that was not even a factor in her request to the chef to accomodate me with an item no longer offered on the menu. I cannot recommend Tien highly enough. Of course I will return..... many times..... where ELSE can I get service like this? I can't think of any restaurant in Biloxi that would except Tien!

Made reservations for this Asian restaurant since I did not know how crowded it might be on a Friday night. Did not seem to be necessary but it did not hurt. Food was very good, pace was good, price was reasonable.
While the service was spectacular, the spring rolls and lobster fried rice were terrible. The sushi was too large to eat in one bite, which caused some of the flavor to be lost. I would not return, nor would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the future.

Our dinner began with calamari with spicy sweet Thai dipping sauce. So good. Hot, crispy, delicious. Also had the noodles with shrimp and pork and scallions. Also great. Shared the Asian grill sampler which had 2 pork medallions, rib eye steak and 3 jumbo grilled shrimp in addition to grilled green and red bell pepper slices as well as onions and mushrooms. It was served with a white rice bowl and Thai peanut sauce. Everything was hot, delicious and appealing presentations. Another amazing meal @ Tien! Service was, as usual, excellent.
5 Star Dining !
This was truly 5 star dining at it's best. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. Overlooks the water. Our food was excellent. Everything was delicious . The service was impeccable, we had a great time and would go back again and again. I would rate Tien as one of the great Restaurants in Mississippi. Try it, you'll like it!
Fair but not a 1st choice.
I'll start by saying our server Bryan was very attentive and apologetic about our long wait for food. The restaurant was busy ,but had empty tables. The quality of the food was okay, but it severely lacked flavor and spices. (It was just bland.) We've been here many times while staying at the IP Casino and pretty much have the same review from previous visits.
We had dinner here before a concert so we wanted a light meal. We ordered as an appetizer lobster dumplings, squid salad and Vietnamese stir fried shrimp. Everything was delicious and not too pricey. We enjoyed our meal and the concert, a perfect night out.
One of Our Favorite Places
We have been several times and the service is always excellent. The staff seems to truly enjoy being there and serving you and they are very willing to help you choose the best entree. The food is fantastic....consistently fantastic...and we highly recommend trying it if you've never been.
