Tried to call and order takeout and the phone kept going to voicemail. Drove up there and out in a basic order and was told it would be 30 minutes. It took 90 minutes and the food was cold when we opened it at home....More

I was blown away by the quality of the food at this restaurant. The Tom kha soup is my favorite, and the sushi has never disappointed. There aren't many (or any at all) places around here that have Thai or Japanese food so I was...More
