Review on Asia

Once the old post office, now a self-styled 'Pan Asian Dining Room', Asia brings a touch of ethnic chic to St Albans. Oriental artefacts, intricate latticework panels and artwork set the tone in the sleek, modern dining room, which provides a relaxed setting for vivid food from many corners of the Far East.

The long menu includes a strong contingent of regional Indian specialities ranging from 'favourite classics' (chicken bhuna, lamb biryani, tandoori mixed grill) to more inventive ideas such as mango prawn puris, Punjabi swordfish with mustard and honey, and haryali chicken with spinach and fenugreek. Thailand, China and Malaysia also get in on the act with green and red papaya spring rolls, deep-fried soft shell crab with mango, steamed sea bream with chilli and lime, and braised duck with shiitake mushrooms.

Also check out the vegetable dishes, which range from stir-fried Brussels sprouts and spinach dumplings to tofu and beansprouts in oyster sauce. The wine list is a good match to the food; otherwise drink Asian beer or tea.
