Service is fast and friendly. Dishes that are spicy are labeled and I found the "spicy" dishes flavorful but not overly hot.

Looking for Sushi but our first choice was closed for vacation. Saw Issara and thought it might fill the bill. Didn't have sushi but the menu looked promising. We immediately ordered some fried rice as our 2 year old guest was hungry. We then place...More
