Recently came for a second visit with my Aunt who lives on the beach. The decor isn't trendy or up-and-coming, but comfortable. It has never been overly busy when we come either. I was impressed, again with the appearance and taste of the sushi. The menu also offers various choices (some seem appropriate for sharing with a large group). I... More

Daughter loves Thai food and having sushi too was a plus. They enjoyed the sushi sampler. We all shared the pad Thai with shrimp, the pork with fresh basil sauce, and the favorite Massaman curry.

My husband ordered the house special fried rice that came with shrimp, chicken and pork. He really liked it. My brother... More

This is not a fancy restaurant, but the food was excellent. I had Shrimp tempura which was served with breaded deep fried veggies - excellent. For my main course I had Chicken Teriyaki. This also was excellent. I was only in the area for 2 nights, but would definitely recommend this restaurant if you enjoy Asian, Thai Food. I would... More

We stopped in here for lunch on the spur of the moment.I do not have much experience with Thai food, so we ordered a lot of dishes that we weren't sure exactly sure what we would be getting. We really liked about half of the things we got, the other half were just okay. But we liked the vibe of... More

Friends ordered the volcano roll, toasted bagel, salmon skin, cucumber roll. My brother had the Massaman curry. I had the coconut soup. I tried the volcano roll and the toasted bagel. Both were great. I also tried the Massaman curry and I thought it was also good. My coconut soup was disappointing. I made it spicer and it was better.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the chicken breast in the dishes we ordered. The rice and noodles were great. It was about $40 for 2 dinners and some crab Rangoon, but it was 2 meals for 2 of us. It was all very tasty. They also have outdoor seating available.
