WNY and Southern Ontario’s Pan Asian restaurant market is crowded. In fact, there are several pan-Asian restaurants up and down the street.

We had two sets of house guests in a short period and ate out over a dozen places, some high end, some more modest. Sun was hands down, the best. We were seated promptly (it's popular, you'll want a reservation). Service was efficient and friendly...they...More
