We went here to try the sushi. There were lots of options and they were artfully prepared. But all three rolls we tried could only be described as soggy. I think the rice just wasn't prepared fully and had too much water left in it....More

Always good food. Every thing on the menu is delicious. Today the yum-yi salad was great. The greens were fresh. The dressing was light and tasty and complimented the salad well. Atmosphere is nice and servers are attentive and hard working.

all is well at this Thai restaurant. The sushi is very good as is the Pad Thai. We had the Thai chicken wing (huge by any measure). the vegetables were also excellent.

I really like the Thai food here and the sushi is pretty good too. The service is pretty average and the prices are very reasonable. The sushi is occasionally not so fresh, but the Thai food is always good.

Sushi was plain and they skimped ok providing sauces like eel sauce. The chicken in the curry dish was terribly plain. A cheap thin piece of rubber. I expected more and was disappointed. The waiters were very nice and well dressed and it was clean.
