Do you think Asian food is supposed to be cheap?

I'm curious about how most Chowhounders think about Asian cuisine. Over the years I have seen many postings about various types of Asian cuisine. I have noticed that several postings claim that Korean restaurants are too expensive and that Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants are so cheap by comparison. There seems to me an underlying criticism and questioning as to why this is the case. I think we should be careful about generalizations in this context because all too often they do not take into consideration other factors such as quality of ingredients, service, location, atmosphere, labor and what you're getting for the money you're paying. There are high class and expensive Chinese restaurants as there are whole-in-the-wall cheap Korean restaurants in New York. There are also restaurants in between.Let me know what you think?
