A lot of asian variety in this restaurant. I had the chicken soup with noodles for lunch. It was a big bowl and it filled me up. This place is open all year around!

Went today today my wife and the food was really good. We have been in Alaska for 3 years and had given up on finding a good Chinese restaurant. This food is good quality and the service is excellent.

The food was average but very pricey for Chinese (sushi roll order $28-30). The halibut and fries were average. There is not much options in the general area... so maybe if your hungry but not a destination.

We stopped here for lunch after cruising around the spit. There are many choices for halibut steaks in Homer, and by chance we chose this one. Upstairs, with a nice view and friendly staff. The halibut was very fresh and cooked perfectly--excellent! We also shared a sushi plate. The restaurant has a huge list of sushi choices. The one we... More

We had sushi and chicken strips. Excellent fast service and they had a special that night for $15 any roll. One of the only restaurants in Homer that stays open late in the summer. Beer and wine also available. We will be back.

We have eaten here before and always had a lunch special. This time we came for dinner and decided to have Sushi. It was very well presented and tasted excellent! I had the "Rainbow Roll" and recommendation it highly.

Went in as right across from where I am staying and where I wanted to go was closed on Monday. Almost didn't go in as menu on window showed it to be pricy but didn't want to look farther. Had fish and chips special. Was dry crunchy coating instead of light batter. Other fare might have been more in line... More

High price $28. a plate but considering the where we are, this was not unexpected. Was very surprised at the huge amount of food provided. Not only did we have a salad on our plate, but was... More

Homer resident who was parched from a run with friends. I asked for water at least 3 times and never received it. Once the food arrived the server never checked on us again. We sat with empty beers and dirty plates for almost an hour before the server came over with our check. Food was mediocre AT BEST and the... More

We were waiting for friends that were entertaining themselves at the Salty Dawg so we decided to stop in and get some sushi with our beer. The views were fantastic from the windows and the restaurant was clean. The chef walked around helping the waitress with the tables and took our order for sushi. We ordered the salmon eggs sushi...
