We'd been traveling all day in a car and were looking for an Asian restaurant to have a relaxing and delicious meal. This was the perfect place. We enjoyed sitting outside and had a delicious meal enjoying the weather and all the varied people passing by, The food was light and delicious. We would certainly come back.

Even though this is one of the highest rated Ann Arbor restaurants, I was not familiar with it. The ratings on Trip Advisor are all accurate. The Pacific Rim is a cozy restaurant that would be a great place for any celebration or special night out. The food was excellent. Our group had the calamari (tasty and not chewy), and... More

Had dinner with my daughter at Pacific Rim by Kana and it lived up to the expectations. The food was fresh, unique and delicious. We got the Monsoon Plate as an appetizer so we could try a number of the items and we loved it. The Warm Chocolate Cake desert is worth the wait (Helpful hint: It takes 20 mins... More

I have been wanting to try this place since I moved my son into school. So glad we made it last night. We had an 8:30 reservation but arrived about an hour early (I was starving) and they happily seated us. The sablefish was my favorite dish. My son ordered the five-spice duck, which was fine, but would try something... More

Service was excellent, decor is beautiful, clean restaurant. Food was delicious. We have eaten at a number of restaurants in Ann Arbor, and this was one of the best overall experiences. Not your typical Asian food, but everything was delicious. Reservations recommended - the restaurant was fairly full around 6:30pm.

We liked having dinner here. The spacing of the tables was great. The service was quite good. We thought the tuna cakes were excellent but the zucchini scallion appetizer lacked flavor. The soup was tasty. As for the entrees, the ribeye was quite good. But the plate could have been served hotter (the food was a bit cool). Desserts were... More

We ate here while visiting our son at school. It was a great place for a special evening! The atmosphere and decor were fabulous! The service was absolutely excellent and the food was even better. There was a great choice of really good food for people who like seafood and those that don't. Everything we had was excellent. The area... More

Pacific Rim never fails. We always have a very special meal there. It is always the choice for birthdays. My daughters and husband are vegetarian, one being vegan(no fish), and they did an amazing job, special for my daughter. Their drinks are absolutely divine! I love the beef with the fried quail egg on top. The Chilean Sea Bass is... More

You will be hardpressed to find a better Asian Fusion restaurant anywhere on the planet. This place rocks and it is walking distance to both Ann Arbor's Main Street and University of Michigan's Central campus area....If you are looking and hate food diappointment, look no further than Pacific Rim....

We used a gift certificate, so we had drinks and dessert, as well as the entrees. Everything was great--nice choices for drinks, we both had seafood entrees which were absolutely perfect, and a little ice cream for dessert. First visit for me, and it made an excellent impression!
