Japanese ,Thai ,Chinese, which is it?

I normally don't find "Asian Fusion" to be my first choice when looking for food from the orient. This would be the exception.... Mildly the exception. If you are looking for the best Thai go elsewhere, ( the curry is flavorful but thin and watery rather than full and smooth ) no lemon grass or... read more

Awesome food, great staff!! I always go with Pad Grapraw Chicken or the drunken noodles. The atmostphere is also nice. I would say it's the best Thai restaurant in the area. Highly recommended!!!

I came from Pennsylvania and visited there once during my vacation last year. The taste is great especially for oishi roll and sushi is really fresh!

This is small mom-pop restaurant. It feels very cozy and kids friendly as well. I have to admit, both of their Thai and Japanese foods are really good.

Great specials. Try the brown rice. Great sushi at a relatively low cost. This is a great place when watching spending, and who is not watching $$$ these days.

Dining with my brother in law and two sisters we were treated to this place for sushi rolls. We shared two and they were large and delicious. Wonderful service, this place is worth many visits! I could have eaten more...we were expected elsewhere...
