Asian restaurants in Liverpool offer a gastronomic adventure. Merseyside is one of the UK's best places to enjoy Asian cuisine, with restaurants serving up wonderful dishes from Japan, China, Thailand and the Indian subcontinent. The city's diverse dining scene reflects its history. For years, the port was home to sailors from around the world and handled the products of Asia on a daily basis. Since the 1950s, a large Asian population has settled in the area too, and the result of this multicultural history is a crop of superb Asian restaurants all over Liverpool.
