we went with two vegetarians and two others, all found good selections from the Japanese or Chinese sections of the menu. Extensive choices - we did not try any Thai food so cannot comment on those. Sushi, fish and vegetable entrees were all very good....More

We keep trying this place even after a not so good experience. Must say, a little better than last time, however prices are a little steep for Chinese food. May try again next time in area?
