The City of Mesa, in partnership with area stakeholders, has unveiled a new brand for the Asian District to celebrate the District’s unique offerings of culture, community, and commerce.

Asian District, Mesa, AZ comprises more than 70 Asian-themed restaurants, grocery stores and other service and retail businesses along a two-mile stretch on Dobson Road in West Mesa.

The new Asian District, Mesa, AZ logo is based on the tangram: a seven-piece Chinese geometric puzzle that dates back 2,000 years. The multiple, colorful pieces of the tangram can be rearranged to create various shapes. The logo features a square comprised of the tangram pieces, symbolic of the different Asian cultures coming together in a unified district community while maintaining the individuality of each culture.

"Mesa has a strong and very active Asian community and I am excited to see the Asian District come to life in west Mesa," Mayor John Giles said. "This is the perfect place for people to gather, eat, shop and immerse themselves in the flavors and cultures of Asia.”

A website,, has been created by the Asian Chamber of Commerce which provides additional information about the District. The website features a business directory and highlights upcoming events in the District.
