I was very excited to finally have the opportunity to eat here and especially on a special holiday for my boyfriend and I. What a disappointment. We entered to loud dance club music, not a romantic setting. The place is clean and comfortable but wasn't decorated for the moment. We chose to sit outside,which was a lovely area. Service was...

Swimmingly fresh sashimi and sushi. Enjoy the uni and toro. Melt in your mouth delicacies. Also serve red curry chicken to die for. If you like Japanese and Thai cuisine this is a must visit.

Our service was good, but I guess the servers were tripping over each other because several asked for our drink order, two took food orders and one told us our food would be out in a few minutes while another had our food right behind her. The food is delicious, the place is clean, good music, outdoor dining and Nary... More

We had Thai curry, some salads and fried rice, combined with Thai beer and white/red wine. Total: $180 for 4.5 people. All of us liked the food and the service was absolutely perfect. We'll be back! To be recommended.

The food is good, but it is very noisy on a weekend night. The wok dishes are tasty and prepared simply. I had the wok beef in ginger. It was not anything unusual or creative, but simple and satisfying.

Extremely disappointed by the manager's attitude when two of our party were served cold meals and when we complained they said would we like them reheated or cooked from fresh. When we asked for them to be cooked from fresh this was done but still was not hot. We saw the manger cooking it himself very hurriedly and we noticed... More

I went here with seven co-workers. The service was excellent. Our water glasses were filled, our orders were taken quickly and our food arrived quickly. I had the pineapple fried rice and chicken. The rice had cashews, raisins, pineapple and tomatoes. Yum! Very reasonably priced for the amount of food provided. The atmosphere was such that we could all hear... More

Get your omega 3 fix here. Very fresh sashimi. Great tuna belly and scallops that are sugary sweet. Always consistently great.

My wife, daughter and I recently had dinner at Pacific Rim. We split two appetizers, stuffed jalapeños and vegetable tempura. Both were excellent. The jalapeños had a kick, but they weren't overpowering. We each had a curry dish for our entry. I had a red curry pasta dish with assorted seafood (shrimp, scallops and octopus). The curry was very flavorful... More

It specializes in rolls, dozens of them, so if that is where you are, you'll love it. My sushi tastes are far above that.
