After reading reviews of this restaurant, I had very high expectations. We came as a group of 4 and we were celebrating 2 birthdays. We had reservations and were seated immediately. There were birthday cards waiting as we sat down and they were signed by the staff which was a really nice touch. We had several small plates including the spring roll, the forbidden rice (the favorite) and the crab dip. I had the sea bass which was FANTASTIC. It was fresh and cooked to perfection. It was plated without frills, just simple jasmine rice, cucumber and sauce. This was surprisingly refreshing because nothing took away from the delicious piece of fish. The others in my group shared rolls. The wasabi tuna roll was hands-down the favorite. The atmosphere was hip and service was attentive. I would highly recommend this place to others. We will definitely be back the next time we visit T.C.!

Red Dragon Cocktail is dangerously delicious. The edamama. Every food item is good, but the small plates are great!

We made a reservation on the same day for 6/30.When we arrived we had to wait a short while for a table ,we got sat in the back where it was somewhat quieter;the place was very busy and i was glad we were not in the front .Service was good ,perhaps slightly slow ,definitely somewhat obsequious .Food was really excellent .We are. Spending the summer around torch lake and the food experience has been very poor . I started with the miso soup which was excellent ,followed by the crab sticks and vietnamese egg rolls .Both excellent flavors .We followed up with thier 3 roll sushi grouping ,really amongst the best we have had ,only topped by KOI in LA .The only aggravating feature was the aweful red plastic chopsticks which are virtually impossible to use .We will be back. I did not find it expensive .

Our waiter was great. Seafood PadThai, Sea bass, Vietnamese rolls, halibut all very good. Vietnamese beef, calamari OK. Back area tables fairly quiet, front and mid parts of restaurant crowded and a bit noisy.
