Asian Takeout in St. Louis

Is there any better takeout than Asian food? Korean BBQ, Chinese egg rolls, Japanese fried rice and sushi - you name it. It's all so good.

Here's just a few places you can find some of that sweet, sweet (and sour) Asian cuisine to take home. I'm hungry just looking at these photos:

Corner 17

The massively popular Corner 17 was started by a family who grew up in rural China, and now make Chinese fusion foods. Their aesthetic socials show off their delicious meals - anything from genuine, authentic Chinese dishes to Tea Tarts to Boba tea. They are well known for their handmade noodles and dumplings.

If you like spicy, be sure to order their Sichuan Spicy Chicken Wings to-go! You can order delivery from Postmates or Doordash or order online from their website (link in the photo)!

Mai Lee

Opened in 1985, Mai Lee has evolved from a solely Chinese menu to incorporating Vietnamese classics from the owner's heritage. Immensely popular and known for their amazing, authentic flavor, Mai Lee was the first Vietnamese restaurant in St. Louis. They offer both Chinese and Vietnamese foods in a large menu.

You can order online through GrubHub or call to order pickup and try it out for yourself.

Sushi Koi

Chef Whitney at Sushi Koi makes wonderful sushi platters, salmon skin hand rolls, and handmade marinades. Their friendly service mixed with the expertly crafted sushi make for an awesome experience.

While not currently offering dine-in services, they offer carryout and delivery through their website.


If Hibachi grills are your style, you'll love Miyabi. While many come for the show of the chef at the grill, you can also sit away from the heat if that's what you prefer. Their huge menu offers a wide selection for anyone who wants to experience: anything from your standard Japanese fare to popcorn chicken (for the kiddos).

You can order online for pickup/takeout.

Everest Cafe & Bar

Most versatile of the list, this restaurant offers Korean, Indian and Nepalese foods. Established in 2004, they are well-known around the neighborhood as a place to find high-quality food with a local flair. They offer quaint patio seating and catering.

They are currently taking call-in takeout orders, or delivery through GrubHub.

Kimchi Guys

St. Louis’ first and only Korean Fried Chicken, Kimchi Guys offers all kinds of sauces to enjoy with your chicken. In addition, the menu offers both traditional and non-traditional Korean BBQ options. Vegan meals are also available.

They are offering online ordering for takeout. They have a neat take-home option: Korean BBQ Meal kits that send you with three meats of your choice, side dishes and a dessert.
