Solid option for Asian food on UES. Nice service, good choices, good pricing. Sit in the back room which is more comfortable. If you are in the neighborhood, this is a good option.

Nice varied menu with sushi and wide assortment of asian dishes. Nice service. Outdoor seating is nice, but noisy on avenue and by garbage, etc on side street.

This review is for Amber on Columbus (not 3rd Ave). Net; we both thought the food was average. Nothing special. Granted neither of us had sushi, but the various fish & chicken dishes we had did not 'stand out'. The best part of our meal...More
