The restaurant is nice enough given the bohemian wannabe atmosphere of Frenchtown and the Thai was very nice, but my daughter was a bit disappointed by the sushi. It was rather small and expensive, in fact, she needed to order an extra roll after downing the Sushi dinner.

We go here often and are never disappointed with anything we have ever ordered. The service is always great. Great for families friends or a night out with the wife.

We sat outside, the restaurant was very busy, it was a great night for dining alfresco. I love all Thai but asked our server her favorite which was the boneless red snapper, this did not disappoint, best Thai I have had in awhile. Watching all the dishes that came out and were presented around us, I noticed all the food... More

Had dinner here about a month ago and was very happy with our dinner. Had dinner on the patio which was nice, a little noisy, but that was fine since we have a toddler and baby. We enjoyed the food. A little different than the normal American Thai cuisine, everything was fresher and little bit lighter (ie less fried) than... More

Having eaten at a couple of renown sushi restaurants - Nobu in NYC & Morimoto in Philly- I can say this local place is every bit as good. The fish is fresh, presentation is creative & everyone from the owners to the hardworking staff are friendly & accommodating. The best part is that it's open 6 days a week, it's... More

Charming little Japanese/Thai restaurant. They have a very friendly staff and an extensive menu. We started out with the 'Tom' soup which is a variety of Japanese 'hot and sour soup. It was loaded with shrimp and veggies, somewhat spicy and very good. We ordered Lemongrass shrimp and #19 (can't remember the name), which included chicken, shrimp, and Japanese beef.... More
