Based on the reviews, it appears that Sushi is their shining star. Certainly it is not their Thai dishes. First time here. Ordered the Thai Basil with Beef and asked our server for the meat to be rare. Upon getting my dish and tasting it...the meat was not rare, there was very little meat in the dish, barely a mushroom and very little basil taste. It mainly consisted of strips of bell pepper in a tasteless sauce. I would have complained but I was having dinner with fairly new friends and didn't feel comfortable doing so in front of them. Had ordered a glass of wine when we placed our dinner orders but never got it.More

Nice atmosphere once you're inside -- complete opposite of when you're outside. Sushi roll was good, but not that special. Beer was ice cold.

It was kind of cool they bring hot towels but there just towels I guess, it’s more for the experience. The pad Thai noodles were a bit dry. The sushi rolls was average. The waiter talked to us maybe twice. Customer service wasn’t that great,...we waited a bit just for noodles. The food presentation was kind of cute.More

Food is good and very affordable. Lots of Vietnamese people come here so I was surprised by the amount. Will return.

The hot sake is actually HOT! The seaweed salad was sizeable and delicious. I got the 2 yellowtail rolls (dumb and dumber and flaming fling). Amazing. Don’t miss this place. Very unassuming from the outside. The best sushi around.

We ordered 3 specialty rolls -Old man roll -Calm roll -Dr V roll They were fantastic!! Fish was fresh, rolls were like pieces of art and they were delicious. We also had a Panang Curry and a Chicken Sauté, lots of fresh crunchy veggies and...flavors were on point. I have tried several sushi places in St Pete and this is truly the best in St Pete.More

We love this place. We have had great sushi all over the world having lived in places like Dubai, Singapore, London etc and to have something that comes close to the best we have had in places like that is a real bonus here in...St Pete. Friendly service, great food and great value!More
