Always great food – I can't say enough about the great food at Apsara. Always good. Always fast. The food is made with fresh ingredients and is consistent, which can be tough to find.

Busy but worth the wait! – We've been going to Apsara since we moved to Providence. On weekend nights especially it can be a wait, but it's definitely worth it.

The food is always delicious, and though there is no liquor license, you can bring your own.

I love the stir fried Cantonese noodle and the Bee Bong in particular.

Beware of the other restaurant called Apsara that's on the East Side, though. It's not actually associated with this one and not NEARLY as good!

APSARA=AWESOME – First i would just like to say its on Pulic st not on Hope St (they are different) and personally i think public st is better not very goodlooking or in the coolest neighborhood but AWESOME food at an AWESOME price they really do prob have THE BEST nim chow ever its just really good and i would also deff recommend the bebong woo. hoo. so tasty. It is also a little difficult to get to because depending on where your comming from there might not be a street sign but its sorta in a fork in the road so you can see it. its not in a trendy spot and as said before they're not that concerned with looking hip inside but, hey. maybe they just used that extra time on making the food outstanding and at a really afordable price and totally BYOB they really make it tuff to resist going there. check it out!

Great Food – We've been going here for 10 years and it's still the best food around. Can order a different dish everytime and not go wrong.

Good asian food in keeping to the asian style of cooking, keeps me from going thru Asian food withdrawal – Good food. Just moved from CA to RI and had to resort to travelling to Boston for my Asian food fix. Apsara keeps to asian style cooking with foods not too salty, sweet, sour, etc. Everything in moderation. Good job guys. I obtained a take out menu and I'm now dating all the items I've eaten. Hopefully, I'll have the menu filled up in no time. FYI: Waiter informed me that the owner is present in Friday and will try to cook/prepare whatever you want even if its off the menu.

Delicious food from four cultures served on the south side of town. – The Scene
If you're up for a culinary adventure, head to the south side of Providence, an area that probably won't appear in any tour book. The neighborhood isn't more dangerous than any other part of the city, as long as you use the same common sense that you would use in any unfamiliar place.

The Food
South Providence is home to many hardworking restaurateurs who cook up the most authentic ethnic eats in town--and for the best prices. You can get a taste of that at Apsara, a multiethnic restaurant whose house specialty is tasty shrimp with coconut sauce. Just don't expect much of an atmosphere to go with your Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian and Thai favorites. The tiny dining room, with only about 12 tables, is sparsely decorated at best.

Great Asain food, Cheap Price – I am Cambodian and Apsara Restaurant is one of the most authentic restaurant I've ever been too. Great food, great environment, great prices. I live in San Antonio now and wish I can go back for there thai ice tea.

Unique Dining – Apsara is an awsome place to try new types of food. The menu varies from Asian, Vietnamese, Thai, or Chinese cuisine all at more than reasonable prices. As if that is not enough, you bring your own alcohol as an added savings. If the owner is there he will come out and put something different on the table for you to try. Fantastic and unique set up, don't change a thing.

Nothing special – Not bad, but nothing special. The prices aren't super low, and the food isn't super good. You won't be disgusted, but you won't be wowed, either.
