Excellent teriyaki chicken bowls. Large servings lasted us two meals since we also got the sushi sample platter, which was pretty good too.

Funky Monkey Roll is awesome. Had to takeout because of COVID so no review on the restaurant itself.

Best Asian food I’ve had in a long time. Very fresh & lots of veggies. Wonderful sauces. Large portions. Great value.

We ordered a bowl of their Beef Pho and Himachi love roll. The roll was very good and the Pho was hot and tasty.

The bang bang shrimp is so tasty. We enjoyed the California rolls too! Tried the noodle bowl, shrimp and pork, just couldn’t get into it. The veggie egg rolls were fresh and yummy. Food ready right on time!

Ordered take-out. Food was excellently prepared, well seasoned, hot and plentiful. Accommodated slight modifications. Excellent experience. Would highly recommend.

I did not expect to find great sushi in Durango, but we certainly did. Had rolls, sushi and sashimi which were all fabulous. A must have is the tempura fried cheesecake - incredible!

Don't let the name or the appearance of this restaurant discourage you from visiting and ordering food. I think takeout is a good option since it is a very small, narrow space, although I have eaten inside a few times.

We tried Rice Monkeys based on reviews. Not sure we agree. We ordered a carry out. First off, the place seemed slightly unclean and so did the employees. The sushi was marginal. Not horrible but not yummy. The noodle dish was lukewarm which is troublesome....Dishes like that are required to be kept at a certain temperature to ensure bacteria does not grow. Will not be back - ever.More

Very small restaurant, but very good sushi. Miso soup was OK. We will be returning on a next visit to Durango.
