This restaurant offered a groupon so we decided to give it a try. Based on prior reviews I expected fairly good food in a too dark, outdated Asian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant isn't too dark. The lighting is a little dim making it feel more intimate, and was a nice touch. The decor is decent. Black leather... More

The lunch specials were good as was the hot and sour soup. The rice was a little over cooked but had good flavor. My iced tea was as bit bitter but drinkable.

This is a fun little place for authentic Chinese food, and not your usually G. Tso Chicken stuff. Be a bit adventurous and try the weird stuff! Recommendation: crispy duck rice, Braised beef noodles

We order take-home sushi/sashimi from Sun Café every week. And it's consistently tasty, the order is perfectly filled (including all the details that might get overlooked by other establishments - like a tray of radish for my husband the radish-lover!), and service is always with a smile :-) Go there, they have LOTS of other items on the menu besides...

Crispy duck rice. Ten dollars. Amazing and delicious. If you like duck, you should try that first! Everything else is extremely authentic. They have a "Chinese menu" that has quite a few authentic dishes on it. Decor could be updated, but the food is great! And the sushi!

We have had lunch and dinner at Sun Café. Their variety of sushi rolls are very delicious and not pricey. Miso soup, rice and noodles are very tasty as well.

Well what had happened was, I went to Rice Box and ordered a couple rolls. I took the food to go and tried it, it was terrible. I was still still in the mood for sushi and I saw that Sun Cafe was in the area so I decided to stop in and give them a try. I had saw... More

sun cafe has always been a go to on Friday nights for my husband and I, and they never let us down. Always enjoyable, until last night. Our guess is there must have been a change in chefs. The house rice was gluey and tasteless, our entrees were extremely over done. Rubber shrimp and shoe leather chicken. Even the fried... More
