Food was mediocre at best. After watching the sushi chef pretty much cross contaminate everything he touched, we cut our meal short and left. Poor quality product on the fish side too. Maybe it's because we aren't starving artists looking for the next cheap meal, but this place should be an easy pass for most. But, if you are on... More

I ordered the chicken with peanut sauce based on the fact that the server told me that the chicken was grilled. Actually it was boiled as it was just pure mushy white with absolutely no grill marks or browning. It was served mediocre warm, not hot, which was also a big disappointment. They add 23% to menu prices so the... More

2 for 1 cocktails and good food right in the middle of the action. The prix fix app & desert portions are small, but it is probably still a good value. I did not try the sushi.

We had seafood curry and sushi combo, both were excellent. Wasn't busy as we were there at about 6pm. Decent pricing. Recommended.

We enjoyed this restaurant, their food, and service- when it was quiet. We went back on an all you can eat sushi night, and it was chaotic, and we found the staff too rushed to even pretend they care- we left. I would recommend during quiet times.

Monday was All-You-Can-Eat Sushi day, with happy hour 2 for 1 drink specials so we decided to eat there. This place looked like it was very popular with the locals so we just had to try it! We were greeted to a small line of people waiting for a table (the place is on the smaller side) but we didn't... More

Fabulous setting and service. We had the curried thai and it was wonderful. The half-price drinks were really great too.
