Four of us tried the new Om Asian restaurant last night. We found it to be an excellent new addition to Tucson's variety of restaurants. The ambiance is modern glass and chrome, with a large room dominated in it's center by a very large sushi bar. Unfortunately, even with reservations, we were seated at a table near the kitchen traffic, however there was no other table available. They did try to look for another one though.
My wife and I shared a starter of steamed lobster dumplings with ponzu dressing, while the other couple tried the chicken lettuce wraps with hoisin glaze. I found the dumplings somewhat bland, and found the wraps more interesting ( and spicy). For entrees, both women tried the shrimp and asparagus in dark sauce. The sauce seemed a little too thick and heavy- sort of like a black bean sauce. The thai basil chicken was tasty and interesting. However, my dish, the Dan Dan Noodles, I found to be the best dish of the four (my good luck). We all decided that we would try the sushi on another visit. All in all, the ambiance was good, as was the service, and we would definitely come back.This is a more upscale asian restaurant- in no way a typical chinese or japanese place. This is probably also not the place to bring small children.
