Excellent Food and Ambiance

This is one of our very favorite restaurants. The food is consistently excellent and creative. The service also is excellent - attentive without being "hovering" and helpful with description of and recommendations of menu options.

Food is excellent and different from any other restaurant. Went with a party of 6 and waitstaff was very attentive. If you like exotic flavors and fish cooked to perfection this is your place. One of a kind!

This was our second visit to Pacific Rim. Friends who live in Ann Arbor say it is their favorite restaurant in the area and we would agree! Our experience wasn't quite as good as the last time we visited as we arrived late in the evening (obviously not the restaurant's fault) and things felt a bit rushed. But the food... More

The whole dining experience is fantastic: the service, food and ambiance. I love that it's more quiet and peaceful in comparison to other places in Ann Arbor. There is a great food and drink selection. Definitely one of my favorite places to eat in Ann Arbor.

We took the complete dinner here - cocktail (my husband took the one with bacon and whisky, he said is was great), appetizer, entree and dessert. It was enough for me but I am not a very huge eater. All dishes were very good, original yet asian style. I really appreciated the style of the restaurant too: modern, but calmly... More

Atmosphere and service was great. Food was good as well. Entrees were better than appetizers. We had Tuna Tartare and the Thai Calamari for apps.

Restaurant week is a great way to try new restaurants with out breaking your bank account. Grilled lemongrass-marinated beef strips, with julienned green papaya, cilantro, chopped peanuts and a spicy thai peanut sauce. Steak was grilled to perfection and melt in your mouth delicious. Chilled puree of avocado soup with Australian crab-meat and crispy wonton chips, a little more spicy... More

Tasteful atmosphere, proper service (attentive and not overly friendly) and refined cuisine make for an enticing foodie outing. The ingredients are carefully selected and approached to honor their quality: fresh, fragrant... I had a sumptuous and velvety Chilled Avocado Soup, the Grilled Lemongrass-Marinated Beef and Grilled Prawns with Shiitake Mushrooms. Sadly, didn't save room for dessert, but the listing was...
