A very crowded and busy restaurant. Cocktails were adequate as was the sushi. We shared the curry with jasmine rice. Be careful - everything sounds so good that we ordered too much food.

We ate our first dinner in TC here on a bit of a whim. I was impressed with the sushi selection and quality. Kung pao chicken was outstanding as well. It was a tad pricey but that could just be the region. Overall nice job!

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
