“Great Thai, not so great Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We didn't really like the Japanese food there. But in contrast, we love their Thai food. Especially the sweet and sour soup, simply delish...

Give it a try if you are in Florence and you are bored with all the pastas and pizzas. You will not regret it.

“Great Thai/Japanese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Well worth the extra few minutes to find, the food is delicious!! We started with a spicy tuna roll (japanese) and found it to be just spicy enough without overpowering the roll. The thai soups and main dishes were amazing, the soups were spicy without being overpowering and the main dishes delighted with the variety of flavor and texture. The staff were helpfull and knowledgable, I don't speak Italian so I just requested dishes I knew in thai and they simply said "si" and brough our lunch. Overall a great meal.
