If you’re like me, you have an affinity for all kinds of cuisine…from the most American you can get to the most exotic. I even love restaurants who are a fusion of various cuisines where you can get a variety. That is one of the main reasons I absolutely love one of our local Jackson, Tennessee gems–Asia Garden Chinese + Japanese Restaurant. From sushi to egg rolls and everything in between, you’d be hard pressed to not find something for everyone here. As someone who loves both Chinese and Japanese food, Asia Garden is one of my favorite spots to grab lunch or have a great dinner. I recently visited for lunch and was lucky enough to try so many yummy menu items and even get to go “behind the scenes” to see sushi chefs Danny & Martin work their magic. All in all, the experience was fantastic as always, so I wanted to share a bit of it here with you! A word of caution…don’t try to lick your computer screen when you see these yummy photos!
If you’re local to the area, you may know that Asia Garden has a long standing history here, having been opened by the Yeh family in 1985 and for many years, located in a small, tucked away spot in the Hamilton Hills Shopping Center (read more about their history here). I remember enjoying many great meals there with friends in college and in the past few years with my husband, as well. But as great eateries tend to do, Asia Garden outgrew there former site and it is now located right across the shopping center in a larger space that provides many more opportunities for growth while still keeping their intimate family owned atmosphere present.
As I mentioned before, I’m a sucker for almost any Chinese or Japanese cuisine, so I had a bit of both. During lunch, Asia Garden does a great special with their Chinese food, and at $7.95 for a main course, soup, and rice or lo mein, you can taste almost anything on the menu. It is truly one of the best lunch deals in Jackson! Since I am an egg roll fanatic, I was pleasantly surprised to see the Two Egg Roll lunch, which included two egg rolls (obviously! Haha!), my choice of soup (I chose wonton which was DELICIOUS!), and my choice of white rice, fried rice, or lo mein. I chose the lo mein because that is one of my favorite dishes from Asia Garden (try their dinner portion…it is HUGE!). The egg rolls were perfectly crispy, served with sweet & sour sauce, and the wonton soup was the best I have EVER had. The lo mein was, of course, delightful and just the right portion size.
But there’s more! The sushi! Asia Garden offers a large variety of traditional sushi, sashimi, and rolls, as well as a ton of specialty rolls for your tastebuds to enjoy. I tried the Jackson Roll (similar to a California roll with no cucumber and added snow crab mix), the Spicy Girl Roll (shrimp tempura, spicy salmon, and crunch, topped with house and eel sauce), and probably my favorite–the Eel Box Sushi (rice, then snow crab mix, then rice, and then on top, fish eggs, eel, and avocado–see the picture at the top!). I highly recommend the box sushi! The presentation is gorgeous and the sushi itself is delectable. Asia Garden’s rolls are larger than normal, so even one smaller roll, such as the Jackson Roll is enough for one, but they offer several options for lunch and combinations of rolls and types of sushi, so you definitely will not be disappointed in any sushi selection.

My lunchtime experience at Asia Garden definitely did not disappoint, and it remains one of my favorite restaurants in Jackson. The rest of our local residents agree as the restaurant has won multiple awards several years in a row for their sushi, Chinese, and Japanese food–and it is well deserved! They also offer pickup orders and now delivery stretching from north to south Jackson via their website (Check it out HERE!), the Waitr App, Door Dash, and Uber Eats. My south Jackson folks–they even deliver out our way!! If you’re local to the area and haven’t been, especially since they’ve moved to their new location, go check it out! Their new space is gorgeous and as colorful, yet sophisticated, as the food you’ll enjoy! If you’re just passing through, make a turn toward the Hamilton Hills Shopping Center and drop in for lunch or dinner. You will be glad you did!
Asia Garden is located at 660 Carriage House Drive, Jackson, Tennessee.
I’ll leave you with some more images from my fantastic lunch, including some behind the scenes images watching the sushi chefs!
My mother was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when she was 68 years old 2 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help her. The medical team did even less. Her decline was rapid and devastating. Her arms weakened first, then her hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Dr AREBANMHEN Herbal formula and his successful ALS TREATMENT, we contacted him. and ordered his ALS Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed her Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, she is able to walk and eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., she is pretty active now and her attitude is extremely positive.i joyfully recommend you to Dr AREBANMHEN because health is wealth this is a very bad experience with those living with ALS please do not hesitate to contact him:firstname.lastname@example.org or call/whatsapp him via +2349069556104 Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/drarebanmhenherbalhome/ YouTube Channel: https://youtube.com/channel/UC6j_u9YEONqNizLCZxvmUnw

I came here because the only other Japanese place near me is Miso in Paris and I absolutely love it so wanted to try another Japanese place in case anything happened to miso. I order sushi, clear soup, and shrimp soba there. I ordered the same here and it was completely different but I’m not blaming them. It just wasn’t to my expectations of Miso 😅 the sweet tea was great!
For example 1) Soba at miso is a little thicker and wider noodle and the veggies are put on the side and the shrimp are shrimp shaped. The noodles are also a bit sweeter. The soba here is thin and they mix the veggies in. The shrimp is also long? It was okay but just not for me.
2) the sushi Was wider and shorter than at miso and was cold although it was cooked. I should’ve looked at the pictures of the sushi beforehand. It would have probably been better warm.
3) I liked the clear soup here. It has chicken broth instead of beef. It also has noodles, chives, and seaweed while miso is beef broth, chives, and mushroom.
Also, my husband’s meal came 15-20 minutes after mine. He ordered the 4 seasons.
My husband and I ate there for Valentine’s. We had the New Orleans sushi and the Fuji sushi. Also egg rolls. It was all delicious. The presentation was beautiful as always. We enjoyed it. The waitress was very nice, too.
We ordered takeout, crab rangoon, chicken lo mein, and pork lo mein with fried rice and everything was delicious. The lo meins were hot, the rice wasn't but no complaint because we weren't going to eat it until later anyway. I highly recommend this place for take out and hope they will reopen again soon for dine-in.
My son and I love Asia Garden and his birthday was today. I asked what kind of cake he wanted. He said a ‘sushi cake’. I called and made one of the oddest requests they have probably ever had yet they surpassed my expectations. It was ready in less than an hour and the amount of food we got for the price was excellent. . He was so amazed at his ‘sushi cake’. It was absolutely amazing. Thank you Asia Garden for making his birthday extra special.
I love Asia Garden!! My mom and I went this evening for her Birthday. We usually order the same thing, but today we both tried something different. I tried the Mongolian Pork and she tried the Shrimp with sizzling rice. I didn't like mine and she didn't like hers. The server felt really bad, but it wasn't his fault. The food looked great and the presentation was great as well. We both tried something different and didn't care for it. I will continue to order carry out, delivery and dine in, because it's the best. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Asia Garden is my favorite restaurant. I've been eating there since moving to Jackson in 1990, and I'm never disappointed. The food and staff are always exceptional, and there is such a wide variety of menu items, I don't have to get bored by the "same ol' thing".
We got a delivery today from here. I ordered the Bahama roll low carb and it was amazing!! I cannot believe I can still have my fave restaurant and fave food while eating low carb! Y’all are the best!!
Love Asia Garden. Every time I go I get a new roll and every time I am NOT LET DOWN! Their eel sauce is the best I’ve ever had. May sound small, but it’s the little things that make their dishes extraordinary. My go to for SUSHI! Always fresh and always delectable!
Their food is so fresh and comes out steaming hot and delicious! My mom got the Peking Beef combo and her Beef was so juicy and tender, it just melted right in your mouth. I had the Honey Chicken, same thing the breading was so soft with a bit of crunch (just how I like it!) the chicken was tender and delicious the honey sauce was AMAZING. Everything was wonderful, down to the Crab Rangoons and wonton soups. My mother and I are from out of town, the hotel we were staying in, had recommended this place and I am SO glad they did!!!
I love Asia Garden Restaurant! It's my very favorite place to eat sushi!!! Their Chinese dishes are delicious as well. I have always had a great experience with my food and the service!!! If you haven't tried this place you don't know what you have been missing!!!
Best Chinese/Japanese restaurant in Jackson. We have been going here for almost 13 years since we were in college. Now, I love going on dates with hubby and sharing sushi and their special fried rice (add the spicy chili oil to the rice. It’s delicious!).
We had never eaten sushi in Jackson before so I asked what was a good sushi place. Several of my friends said Asia Garden so we tried it. It was ahhhmzing! We will definitely be coming back! Y’all did not disappoint.
My husband and I came for a visit today. I had the mermaid salad no siracha and he had the combination rice. We shared the Naruto Roll. All of it was very good! He loved the creamy sauce that came with the rice. Great for me that is doing Keto and for him that is not. He enjoyed my choices too.
