I was so disappointed in this restaurant. The sushi was substandard. The restaurant was dirty. I will never go to this one again. My family and I love sushi and disappointed is the word on this one.

This is our go to restaurant. We eat there a couple of times a month. The atmosphere is good and the wait staff is nice. They serve the best Pho in town...we love it! It is a must have.

This restaurant has excellent, refined Thai cuisine with Japanese mini portions and prices. The Thai green curry was divine, as was the Satay Chicken. The bowl of white rice was simply pathetic though, it was at most 2 spoonfuls. Price was on the high side...More
