    Sweet Potato Roll, Volcano Roll, Tropical Roll, Futo Maki, anf Spicy Scallop were all very good. Favorite was the Sweet Potato and Tropical. Be sure to bring your wine since it is BYOB.

    The Tuna Tataki appetizer is amazing! Add Jalapenos for a ton of flavor. A great deal! We love the snow angel & by the beach (and Jaiyen) rolls as well as the spicy miso soup!

    Sweet Potato roll was very tasty and the crab rangoon is a great starter! This place is definitely worth a return visit.

    Great atmosphere. I suggest the Dragon and Mexican role. The Tan Yum soup is nice and spicy! Great date place.

    Ordered the Futo Maki and the Hawaiian Fired Rice, both items were amazing. This place has a great staff, a great atmosphere, and great food. Try it out

    The Hawaiian fried rice is THE most amazing rice I have ever had. The curry compliments the raisin and pineapple so perfectly!

    If you want Una Don, it's good but NOT SERVED IN A BOWL. It's on a plate, like a maki. Just tell them you want it in a bowl and they'll do it.

    This is one of the best go-to Thai places in Lakeview. BYOB too.

    Dragon roll and sweet potato roll are insanely good. Also, can't beat Thai iced tea for two bucks!

    When you visit Jai-Yen, you must try the sweet potato sushi roll. It is the best thing on the menu, hands down!! Try one roll, you'll order another. Read more

    Jai Yen maki is spciy, but very good. Give that a try if you are looking to break out of one ingredient maki.

    Eh. It's not great. Very American-ized and everything seemed loses with sugar. Would not recommend.
