New Montana Restaurant Gets National Attention

When you think of Asian food, Montana probably isn't the first place that comes to mind. The state is more widely known for its high-quality beef and great steaks. However, there's a fairly new Asian restaurant the opened in Bozeman, Montana in 2023 that has earned a reputation for being one of the best in the state. The restaurant was also recently named a James Beard Award semifinalist in the "Best New Restaurant" category.

If you're in Bozeman, you don't have many options for Asian food. Sweet Chili Asian Bistro, Rice, and Thai Basil are among the most popular in the area. If there's one thing Bozeman needs, it's more diversity and culture.
