    Delicious and the prices were reasonable. I ordered a five spice duck noodle soup while my three friends and I shared a spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura roll. The shrimp tempura roll was quite good!

    Wild pork, Panang Curry, and happy hour deals (sushi and drinks) are all amazing. Sushi is also great independent of price. Best value for Thai in the city IMHO.

    Best Thai I've found in the area. You *must* try the duck kaprow; it is everything good Thai food is supposed to be: sweet, tangy, spicy, and with the crispy basil leaves and other spices it just ama

    Ask the waiter for a table upstairs, there is more privacy on the second floor. Gai Sarm Ros chcken is very tasty. If you're into hot sauce, always ask for the hot sauce tray.

    Great sushi. Friend ordered egg fried rice which she found too oily, but the sushi more than made up for it.

    Remind me NEVER to come back here again. Yeah, the happy hour sushi is cheap but it's worse than refrigerator supermarket sushi!!! Ugh. Lychee martini was so bad I couldn't finish it.

    The sushi tasted like it had been sitting out for a bit. Rice was warm and overly sticky. Other than that, it was decent. Service was very slow and hard to flag down. Atmosphere was loud and echoey.
