All in all our experience was quite pleasurable. Nicely prepared Asian cuisine. Good service and very friendly. The ambience and décor was nice. A full bar and a limited craft beer selection is available. Prices were in the mid range.

We enjoyed the pork larb and a mild curry- really tasty. Popular place with a well earned good reputation.

We were tourists in Buena Vista but our friends who live there recommended The Asian Palate Restaurant. The menu options were varied and interesting. It was difficult to choose, but I had the Thai Beef with Sweet Basil. I don’t like highly spiced food so I choose a dish that did not have a red peer next to it. I... More

This is a tough review because I believe the "only show in town" phenomenon is happening here. Having grown up on the coast and lived in Japan for three years, I had to remind myself that a Thai-influenced menu in the mountains where you would normally find a Wendy's isn't bad. However, the staff was standoffish.

My friends and I had a very nice time at Asian Palate after a hard day of river rafting. The place was packed when our party of seven arrived. We didn't have a reservation. Yet they were able to seat us in minutes. We must've been lucky! I tried the minced pork larb since I've never had it before. It... More

Our family of 3 had dinner at the Asian Palate on a recent trip to Buena Vista. We tried Edamame, Sushi, and Garlic Noodles. The atmosphere was friendly, the service was wonderful, the food delicious and the cost reasonable (considering sushi).

This place was recommended to me from a patient in Colorado Springs. The staff was friendly and helpful. The drinks are delicious. I have had more fresh tasting sushi with larger fish portion sizes (less rice), but I don't think you will find it this far from a large town. For it being in Buena Vista, I would recommend it....

It was a Monday night and the place was full at 7 PM. There was a four top available right behind the hostess but she told us to wait by the bar. We sat there for 15 minutes and then she seated us the table that was available when we walked in. Crazy! There was an older gentleman playing the... More

Came across this restaurant during our stay in Buena Vista and the food was amazing. My husband had sushi and I had a chicken dish, both were delicious as well as dessert. A must try.
