For DC, the prices are very reasonable and the portions are really good. Excellent drink options and food for every taste. I had the spicy seafood soup which was delicious. Tables are small downstairs but upstairs is nice and roomy. Great service, too!

The restaurant is close to the hotel and easy to get too. Not too much seating. The sushi was good, as was the satay. Great for a quick bite.
