This place has excellent Thai food, so my wife tells me. When we come here, I get the sushi. My favorites are the sweet potato maki and the avocado unagi (smoked eel). The sushi is prepared fresh, on site. The ambiance is nice. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. This is my favorite restaurant in Dixon.

Great buffet choices, nice decor, friendly staff. Overpriced mason jar "end of season cider" at $6.50. Low alcohol, should have been half the price. But overall, I would definitely go back. Buffet $13. The curry dishes were yummy! Meat just melted in my mouth. Different looking crab rangoon, but delish. Great find in small town.

We ate dinner here on Wednesday evening. I would have given 4-5 stars, but the chicken in my Panang Curry tasted like it was leftover or added to the curry after the fact. The chicken needs to be poached in the dish not added to it. The curry itself was amazing. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, but as the... More

Absolutely loved this place! We sat at the sushi bar and tried and array of delicious dishes...my favourite was the tuna sashimi dish which melted in the mouth but was accompanied by red onion and had a nice kick. Jobe on the sushi bar could not have been any better at looking after us and keeping us entertained...he and his... More

For those who like to eat a lot, there is a lunch and dinner buffet for a set price. We looked at it but decided to order off the menu instead. We ordered 2 entrees and shared that was more than enough food for the 2 of us. We shared a Red Curry chicken and Shrimp Pad Thai. The Pad... More

I was traveling solo on business and happened to be downtown at 4pm on a Tuesday. Business picked up dramatically at 5:15 and it was half full when I left shortly after. Since I was in the area I decided to check it out. I love Thai and I'm also a fan of Sushi so I figured why not. The... More

My son and I went here for dinner. He had the garlic chicken and I had the beef teriyaki. His dish was very good. The chicken was tender with peapods and carrots. The beef that I had was slightly tuff and it was swimming in too much sauce. I had to tilt my plate so that the sauce ran from... More

I've been here many times over the years. It is a favorite business lunch destination and has become one of the most popular downtown restaurants in Dixon. The owners have continually upgraded the facilities, and the staff takes good care of you. The menu is extensive, and they often some great lunch specials for only $6.95. I frequently go back...

They have a very nice lunch menu, several box lunch options, a pretty extensive sushi menu. The parking can be tight if you park on the street but you can park a half block away in the city lot. The service has been top notch every time we have been there.

Thank Tammy S
