Don't bother. Expensive. The leechee martinis are disgusting. The garlic noodles had never met garlic. The salad was so overdressed we sent it back. Yuck.

The spicy fish soup is amazing! Lots of choices of traditional and unique sushi! I highly recommend that you try one of their chefs sushi creations. Curry chicken is excellent. Its a great quite location. Nice seating inside and out.

Have been to PL8 a few times now. Sushi is great! Almost all the entrees have sugar; wished there were alternatives.

This is an Asian Restaurant where you can match your desired price point with the food you order by ordering one or more of the smaller Asian plates such as rice rolls or sushi, or by ordering a full entree such as Pad Thai shrimp, which is what I ordered. The Pad Thai was not over spiced and was served with some crisp shredded vegetables making the overall dish quite good.

The place is equally appealing day or night due to the spacious windows and sophisticated decor. Additionally, you can arrive relatively late by suburban standards. On Saturday night you can get a table until 10:00 p.m. and have full service among other customers who are actually still eating.
