10 Best Fusion Restaurants in Tennessee

You could travel all over the world sampling cuisine from your favorite countries, but a trip to Tennessee delivers almost the same results. Fusion restaurants are surprisingly a hot ticket item in a state that’s known for deep-fried everything. These 10 best fusion restaurants are bringing together flavor and service like you’ve never seen it before.

1. Chauhan Ale & Masala House, Nashville, TN

Filled with global inspiration, you won’t find a more eclectic menu anywhere in Music City. Indian and Southern cuisine collide to create an extensive selection of dinners and cocktails that’s nothing but satisfying. The bar is every whiskey lover’s dream come true, with over 40 different labels to choose from. Plus, they also serve a top-notch Sunday brunch that no local or tourist should miss.

2. Kobe Asian Fusion, Nashville, TN

Don’t let the outside sway you—inside is a surprising atmosphere that many tout at the hidden gem of the city. Combining the best of Japanese and Thai cuisine, this place is straightforward, no frills, and full on delicious. Portions are large, especially compared to the price you pay, and service is fairly quick. 

3. Ginger Hibachi Japanese Cuisine, Dickson, TN

Hungry patrons love coming here because they know can fill up for less than most places. They offer plenty of options to suit nearly any diet, including a huge selection of vegetarian entrees. And the service is just as noteworthy—they’re quick, friendly, and ensure you have the best experience possible.

4. Soy Bistro, Brentwood, TN

Korean food is the main attraction here, but that’s not all it has going for it. They’ve also infused Hawaiian, hibachi, and even classic beer-battered cod into their menu to create a satisfying experience that will please even picky eaters. Every dish is a work of art that looks as good as it tastes, and the creative flavors are equally surprising and delightful.

5. Coffee Fusion, Murfreesboro, TN

This coffee house slash Asian food stop is one of the most unique combinations of edibles you’ll find in the state. Stop here for their morning caffeine and American breakfast favorites, then come back for an Asian-inspired lunch or dinner, including banh mi or Pho. Bubble tea, Italian sodas, matcha green tea, and iced tea are also part of the lineup, so there’s always something for everyone to enjoy.

6. Lee’s Fusion Cafe, Pigeon Forge, TN

Tucked away from the touristy side of Pigeon Forge lies one of the city’s best kept secrets. Their Asian fusion roster includes some of the best of the eastern hemisphere, such as bento boxes, noodles, soups, traditional Chinese and Thai dishes, and hibachi, to name a slight few. Portions are large and prices are reasonable, plus you can order your meal online to save yourself some time.

7. Wild Ginger, Franklin, TN

Nothing compares to the polished, sophisticated atmosphere here. A unique blend of Pan-Asian, Western, and South American cuisine gives you no shortage of options. The open kitchen, creative plating, and inventive flavors make this a perfect go-to for business meetings, date nights, or any other occasion.

8. PM Cafe, Nashville, TN

The sushi bar here is a tried and true favorite, but that’s the only thing that keeps folks coming back. Burgers, Pad Thai, wraps, Japanese hot dogs, poke bowls, and sushi burritos make your dinner decision a tough call, especially since you likely won’t find many of their items on any other menu. All the more reason to visit again and again.

9. Fulin’s Asian Cuisine, Oak Ridge, TN

Serving the best of Chinese and Japanese favorites, this place is big on flavor and hospitality. Their menu is chock full of options for everyone, including seafood and vegetarian meals. Eat in, or order online to take home—either way, you can’t go wrong. 

10. Pacific Fusion, Cordova, TN

The real winner here is the buffet that lets you eat your fill of Japanese, Thai, Chinese, and American eats. Fresh ingredients and affordable prices make this one of the best places to eat in town. Choices usually include an extensive combination of noodles, hibachi, sushi, seafood, ice cream, desserts, soups, and more.
