Started with Petworth roll (sushi) and it was delicious. It was supposed to be split between my husband and myself but two of our children ended up eating half of it. It was a hit all around. I ordered the duck and would recommend it for fellow duck lovers.

Good food for relatively cheap prices, with very quick service. Never been for the live music, but it's a good place for a quick bite, with a good variety of choices.

I love the sushi at this place! It is always fresh and delicious. I love the decor along with the live jazz every once in the awhile. This is my and my friends go-to meet up spot. They also have a delicious thai menu with something for everyone be it chicken pork seafood or veggie. Extra points for great location... More

I was about to be disappointed with their Thai food but it actually tasted better than I had thought. The music is great, so it's certainly a place to be with friends.

One of the main reasons I like this place is its stellar location. But it also has great Thai food. With generous portions- more bang for your buck! If you're looking for a delicious Thai meal in the U Street area, this is where you should go
