My friend scheduled a meeting there because it's quiet and not busy. Apparently no one got the memo to stay home. It was crowded but comfortable and we could easily talk without shouting. Our choices included shrimp kabob, chicken kabob, sweet and sour chicken, and cashew chicken. My shrimp kabob was grilled and had, I think, 15 pieces, and was... More

Visited January 2, 2017 for sushi: many delicious options. Eel was a first for us-and surprisingly good. We ordered the spring rolls based on another Trip Advisor recommendation and YES!, they are delicious! Ordered Cashew chicken & General Tso chicken. The chicken is white breast meat and very tender. Sauces were perfect! I agree with other writers, Antai is a... More

We had dinner here with friends. Although we had to wait to be seated, there was room at the bar and the bartender was attentive. Our waitress, Rebecca, was extremely friendly and professional. Food is served promptly in very generous servings. This was a very enjoyable experience. We will return for the hospitality and the great food.

Please eat here, the food is so good. A must try is the potstickers! I often call ahead and order takeout for lunch. The steamed chicken and vegetables is my personal favorite. Love this place.

You can see any type of dress here - shorts, dress pants, suits, etc. So it's not an "upscale, need reservations" restaurant, but the prices are equal to an upscale restaurant. Everything is delicious, don't get me wrong, but $12 for a bowl of noodles? Service is always great, but not an every Friday night spot.

It was great dining experience. Amazing food. I love the pork fried rice. And sushi. The pan fried dumplings are really good as well. Definitely need to go back.

This was my first visit to Antai and my only regret is that I did not find it sooner. This is a gourmet sushi restaurant, but with many other offerings. One friend ordered sushi, the other ordered just plain warm noodles with a side of calamari and I ordered "Many Blessings", which is a combination of shitake mushrooms, broccoli, carrots,... More

I can't tell you how many times I've been here, but my family and I love to come here. Everything from the sushi, to the entrees like sesame chicken, soup and noodles and everything else that offers is fantastic. I have not had a bad meal there yet. The staff is extremely friendly and we have actually made it our... More
