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.
What part of Asia do you want to explore when you next book a table? If you want the widest possible choice of dishes, Liverpool's Asian fusion restaurants are worth a look. These places are staffed by expert chefs who know the gastronomic culture of multiple countries inside out. This allows them to serve up anything from pad thai or beef rendang to roasted duck breast and pork belly. There's no better way to blend the finest aspects of Southeast Asian and Chinese cuisine, and everyone is guaranteed to find something they enjoy.
However, you can also zero in on specific national foods when you book Asian restaurants in Liverpool. Just to highlight one example, you can head to Nepalese eateries in Aigburth and discover how the delights of this Himalayan cuisine. Try momo dumplings (which resemble Chinese dim sum), and pair them up with traditional Nepalese curries to create a unique mixture of Indian and Chinese tastes. And it's not just about Nepal: there are Thai, Japanese and plenty of Indian or Vietnamese places to try as well.
Most of Liverpool's finest Asian restaurants are located in central districts like Ropewalks or Wavertree, making them ideal for evenings when you need somewhere to dine before hitting the bars or theatres of the city centre. In fact, some of the Asian restaurants Liverpool has to offer actually double up as upscale cocktail bars, with contemporary exposed brick interiors, DJ sets and authentic, perfectly prepared dishes. If you like the idea of pairing up a bowl of vegetable gyozas with a Singapore Sling, they will be the perfect place to go, and you can book any of them at Quandoo.
