Usually eat at jaspers, but since they close before 8pm on a weekend, we went to this restaurant, and WOW, was it good! Since Jaspers is obviously going out of business, we will come here from now on. Great service, great food.

Whether you like Chinese, Thai or Japanese, this is a great place to eat. My favorite: the Japanese bento box. And check out the decor in the ladies' room--the best in Ellsworth. The only down side is the paperwork they have in view as you...More

Went to Shinbashi for lunch. This was by far the cleanest and nicest décor of any Asian restaurant we have visited. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Now for the food - it was nothing short of awesome! We had the Lo-Mein, Philadelphia Roll...More
