Asiana-Underwhelmed in Greenwich
Asiana is an attractive restaraunt in Greenwich CT that Lynn and I stopped at during a detour coming from Poughkeepsie. We had wanted to visit Greenwich on many occassions but for one reason or another we never had the opportunity.
We hit the attractive Connecticut town around lunchtime with no real sense of where to eat or really what we were hungry for. We glimpsed Asiana, a small, apparently Oriental restaraunt on our first pass through Greenwich's downtown. Seeing nothing more interesting or appealling, we decided to give it a shot.
The experience was odd for us. The menu, with Japanese, Chinese and Thai offerings sounded better than it tasted, and the decor, though striking was undermined by the banal setting of the restaraunt in a small shopping center. The service, though satisfactory was by no means memorable nor warm.
As was stated earlier, the food did not keep the promise of the menu. The Tuna I had was beautiful, but had a rather ordinary flavor that was compromised by an overuse of wasabi. The spicy tuna roll I had seemed uninspired, and did not seem freshly made either. The food was inexpensive, but all things considered the place was ultimately a dissapointment.
