“Excellent experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Food was great, service OK, the place can be a little bit crowded. We ate some mix of oriental food, plenty of choice for every taste. Mostly young people among the customers

“Best in the area ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

We can walk to Indie Cafe so that makes it even better, but if I had to drive across town it would still be worth it. They specialize in Thai food and sushi. We have had both and both are excellent.

“Great sushi and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Went with locals who rave about this place. Although a little far from the Loop, it's worth the 30 minute trek out because the sushi is fantastic. I will definitely go back next time I visit Chicago.

“Good Sushi and Thai Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We wen with some locals who consider this their 'go to' restaurant. We had a good meal. The sushi appetizers we had were the highlight of the meal in my opinion. My entree had a lot of noodles but was OK. Not too spicy.

The bathroom was gross.
