Do we know the language they speak in Asshai or has that yet to be revealed. I'm sure Valyrian and Ghiscari float around the population but i'm pretty sure that Asshai would have its own language.

Agreed. I think it'd be different from any other language. Actually, because Asshai seems to be some far off place that not too many people go to, I bet that there's listen Ghiscari of Valyrian influence in the language.

Actually, we already know that Asshai has it's own language. Mirri Maz Duur spoke ( or sang, rather ) in the language of Asshai when she was performing the ritual in Drogo's tent.
We've also learned from Davos' POV that when Melisandre was burning the Seven on Dragonstone ( and several times before ), she prayed to R'hllor once in the Common Tongue, once in High Valyrian and Once in the speech of Asshai.

But, we don't know if it's just refered to as the Asshai language, or if it has another official name.

The people of Asshai are called the Asshai'i, so maybe their language is called Asshai'i.

I concur

Goddamn I really want to see this city!

GRRM said we won't see Asshai except in flashbacks, and I expect the architecture of the place to be quite dark as exemplified by the statues Dany could barely look at in Vaes Dothrak.

dunno i get a far east feeling about Asshai (chinese/japanes/korean with a touch of the indian subcontinent) sort of architecture and culture, but this is all guesswork anyway nothing official.
