There is no other restaurant in Merrillville, IN like Asparagus. If you like piano music sit in the bar (although it can be loud) Otherwise the restaurant has a great atmosphere, appetizers are delicious and the pad thai is my favorite dish.

Had a delicious meal with the coconut cream sauce infused curry mixed with chicken, tomatoes, onions and seasonings. It was a generous portion that left only enough room for coconut ice cream served in a shell. A very good meal!

Went in for lunch and waited 5 minutes until someone brought water, waited 10 more minutes and no one even came to the table. Got up and left and no one even bothered to ask why we were leaving. Won’t be back.

Excellent food and drink that you don't get at every restaurant. Very unique! Generally very quiet. Nice for a date night. TV's are in the bar area only to minimize distractions. Due to the price, I have not seen young, unruly children dining.
