I enjoyed the Thai curry with tofu. My husband had it with Chicken. The tofu was a little tough but the flavor of the dish was really good. I enjoyed the blake's flannel mouth cider too. Waitress was friendly. Parking at meters on street.

Atmosphere is high-energy fun, perfect for a family birthday celebration. Our small plates and sushi were fresh and delicious. Outstanding service. Enjoyable desserts too.

Ordered take out since it was getting little late for our kiddo. Well food was decent but no where near what we paid for. If you are looking for a trendy place with decent food it is probably not a bad place to eat but not really good for take out.

Sushi bar and great bar with yummy fruit martinis. My favorite is the lemongrass martini! Wonderful appetizers and salads. Atmosphere is classic. Try the potstickers or the unique calamari. Sake and wine The stars are the bartenders, Tyler, Matt and Jeremy including an awesome manager. Try the forbidden rice with pineapple and poached eggs the best!㊙️

We love this restaurant! The Asian cuisine is consistently excellent, the atmosphere is upscale and service is top notch. The sushi is to die for and the Sea Bass is the best we've ever tasted. If you're looking for a special dining experience, this is the place!
