Asian restaurants in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem area
Asian cuisine refers to any of several major regional cuisines, including East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian, Central Asian. Normally Indian, Pakistan and other middle eastern cuisine is included in this category. We have separated Indian and Middle Eastern into its own category.
Asia, being the largest and most populous continent, is home to many cultures, many of which have their own characteristic cuisine. Geographically they are all in Asia, but the flavors and styles of cooking are worlds apart.
While rice is common to most Asian cuisines, different varieties are popular in the various regions. Basmati rice is popular in the subcontinent, Jasmine rice is often found across the southeast, while long-grain rice is popular in China and short-grain in Japan and Korea.
The Triad is loaded with Japanese restaurants which is odd. I have tried many of the areas Japanese restaurants and I find the food a bit boring flavorwise. Personally, I like the more exotic and intense flavors found in Thai, Vietnamese and Korean Foods. The good news is there are many great Vietnamese and Thai Restaurants. Chinese restaurants that are great are few. I would really love to see more Chinese restaurants in the Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point area break out of the carry out mold that has the counter with a picture menu on the wall. The area needs some good sit down Chinese Restaurants (Please no buffets) with good service, food and ambiance.
