The server was very friendly. This is the only place that I know of in Marathon that serves pad Thai and tomkha soup and it is delicious!! You can tell all of the produce is super fresh! I got some sort of spring roll appetizer...More

I heard good things about this place, though I couldn't find any reviews about sushi so I took a chance on it and ordered it to go. I had the volcano roll and spicy tuna, plus a spring roll. There were ample portions, but unfortunately,...More
