“An Asian Gem - out on Connecticut Avenue”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Please environment - not overly done with Asian décor. Although we didn't have the sushi, the menu was laminated and you use a red marking crayon for your orders.
I enjoyed the shrimp tempura - delicately fried along with a mixture of vegetables; would have liked more shrimp and less of the latter, however. My colleague ordered a chicken in garlic served in a mini-wok. He indicated it was excellent.
Service very good, but English is not the primary language!

“Neighborhood Gem with Wonderful Asian Food”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Recently we keep coming back to this great, closeby restaurant. Friends came into town wanting Sushi, so off we went to dinner. Sushi was superb, fresh, professionally prepared, our wonderful waitress explained how to order by marking choices. I had an amazing hot soup. Edamame is best here anywhere! Decor is quite nice.

“Average”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The sushi was good, but not much value. The Pad Thai was not spicy, but filling. I think some minimal changes could really do this place better.
