“A great option for Eastside of Greenville!”
Review of Lin's Asian Cafe

Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 February 2018

This restaurant fulfills the desperate need for a full service, sit down restaurant in the residential part of the Eastside in Greenville. There is a bar area with multiple TVs. The other side of the space contains booths and tables. I observed several people coming in to pick up to go orders.
The food selection consists of Chinese, Thai, and Japanese dishes. The appetizers we ordered were skimpy, but tasty and good. The entrees were large portions and I had enough to take home leftovers. We were served complimentary fresh pineapple chucks following the dinner. A pleasant surprise and a nice Asian touch!
The wine by the glass contained decent options and standard domestic & import beer selections were offered. Flavored saki, hot & cold saki, plum wine and mixed drinks are available.
This restaurant is more than worthwhile to visit especially if you live in this area. It is wonderful to have this type of restaurant located so close to so many neighborhoods!

We were disappointed in the taste of the food. The presentation was beautiful , and the service was good. We will not return as there are better choices in our area.

We like Tokyo Cafe so we thought Lin's Asian Cafe would be great too and we were very disappointed. The staff was very amateur at best, so yes service wasn't good. The Hot and Sour soup lacked spice and it wasn't very hot. The Dumpling Soup was very good and could have used a few more dumplings. The Dragan n Phoenix garlic sauce side was tasteless and the General Tso Chicken side was Ok, but nothing great. We had a Pad Thai Combo that was good, but it needed more sauce and more spice, had very little taste. In both dishes, the Shrimp were big and good. All in all, we were disappointed. I don't know how long they are open, but they need to get their act together for sure.

Our first visit to this establishment was on a whim while shopping at the grocery store in this plaza. When we walked in, there was only one other couple there besides us. The wait staff was friendly, but t told us to just pick a place to sit.

Upon opening the menu, we were relatively shocked at the high prices that we were seeing. From the outside of the place, you would expect that it was maybe a $10 per plate restaurant, not a $20 per plate restaurant, and the alcoholic drinks were very expensive.

The soup and salad were quick to be delivered, and the soup was tasty, but the salad dressing had a very strong ginger flavor.

When our main entree was delivered, we were disappointed in the fact that food that was just being delivered was lukewarm at best.

Not a very good first impression, and definitely the first, and last time we visit.
