    As a steadfast fan of Pad See Ewe, we can attest that the rice noodles here always have a fresh and satisfying texture. The addition of snow peas and broccoli make for a bite that’s almost surprising. Read more

    Tried the rainbow sushi in their specialities! It was served with wasabi and ginger! MAKE SURE you dip wasabi into their sauce and then eat it with the sushi so that it doesn't burn lol

    Good place to satisfy your sushi craze. Staff is always friendly. BYOB. Haven't tried their Thai food but it looks good! Planning to try it next time.

    The sushi is pretty darn good. I'd say 8 out of 10 stars. The noodle dishes are really great though.

    Great potstickers and the Pad Saw-Ewe was delish! Spicy shrimp role was fantastic.

    Be forewarned: parties of 6 or more will be charged a "service charge" of more than 20%! (ours calculated to 20.8%, wtf?) It doesn't mention it on the menu...

    If they warn you that they have an upcoming reservation, just leave. They will hurry you along in a ridiculous manner.

    Okay, we figured it out. It's groups of FIVE or more for the "service charge" (it's not labeled gratuity, but I assume that's what it is-very sneaky) and the amount is 23% before tax. 23 percent! WTF?
