Rockford Area’s Favorite Places to Go for Fantastic Asian Food
Do you get stuck in the rut of always going to the same place and ordering the same thing? This is the list that gets you to try some new places for Asian food.
Best Asian Restaurants in Rockford
There are dozens of places in the 815 to eat great Asian cuisine, picking the best is not an easy task.
I get nervous when choosing food I'm not all that familiar with and end up sticking to what I know I already like. It can be a bit tough to stretch out and try something new. Maybe for you, it's even difficult to add something besides just Chinese or Japanese food to your pallet.

been really homesick since moving to the states & missed my mom like crazy so I’ve also been looking for authentic Thai food and this is it. This is the place. Could not even find a better place in Chicago. If you’re looking for real, authentic Thai food, THIS IS IT!!

Delicious food and decent prices! Limited menu so what they make, they make top-notch. I loved my beef Pho and crab rangoon.
Here's a review I never saw coming.
