This restaurant has recently moved to the present location and is more wonderful than ever, if that's possible. Great service and the food was wonderful!

We had deliciously marinated steak that we got to cook kin a hot rock at our table, crab cakes with amazing dynamite sauce, green tea chicken curry a tiger roll and a New Mexico pecan Chile roll. And even though we... More

This was our first visit to Aqua Reef in it's new location. The atmosphere is much better and the spaciousness feels good as well. The large fish tank is well-maintained and adds a nice touch. The service was well-timed, and that was important because we had several appetizers before our main course. We had house sake (warm), Dim Sum Chicken... More

I do not ordinarily pen negative reviews, HOWEVER . . . having lived in NYC, on the West Coast, and being from Hawaii where Pacific Rim/Hawaii Regional Cuisine originated. . . this IS NOT FUSION by any means . . .

Dear Lincoln: We are sorry that you did not have a better experience. You are correct that we are not a Fusion restaurant-in fact we only have a handful of fusion dishes; and it is unfortunate that you have been misled in believing that we are selling an exclusively fusion experience or menu. Thank you for your review. We certainly... More

The lunch menu has a great variety of freshly prepared Euro-Asian food items. Service is conscientious and timely. Reasonably priced, unique and the setting is attractive.

Shawna gets 6 stars! We were alerted by email of Super Bowl special. Missed deadline, but Shawna let us squeeze in a to-go order at the last minute. Fabulous deal and huge amounts of food. Everybody VERY happy at our house during the game! Love atmosphere at new location. Food always delicious.

Best sushi in Las Cruces hands down. Only place in las cruces to serve dim sum. Recommend the tower sampler. Bento boxes & hot plates also available. Good variety of common Asian dishes. New location is somewhat hidden, tucked away in a shopping center but once inside it is beautifully decorated.

Smerging of fusion styles. Sweet sticky entrees and the sushi is not made by a sushi chef. Lacks authenticity. Reminds me of PF Chang, which I do not like either because its food is sweet, sticky, not crisp and clean.
