“Worked for us!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We had a group of 17 eat here in May. Female manager was friendly and very patient with kids and adults. Sushi was very good across the groups selections. I cannot speak to the Thai dishes .
I can see that some might balk at service, but the restaurant was spotless, and it appears they have cleaned up their kitchen. This group of "sheltered northerners" walked away fed and satisfied.

“PLASE DON'T MISTAKE THIS PLACE FOR THE AMAZING LEMONGRASS IN MARYVILLE!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This place used to be really good but I noticed a big difference in taste/quality and even got a little sick the last 2 times. Then I saw on the news they failed their health inspection. Needless to say, I will not be returning. BUT the one in Maryville is A TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE!! My family eats there at least twice a month...very friendly staff, great fresh-tasting sushi and yummy Thai dishes. I can't imagine it's owned by the same people because they are polar opposites!

“Only sheltered morons were return here.”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

It's not just bad Thai food, it's just BAD FOOD! Just Horrible! Rude server and hostess-"OK, You tip me, you tip me OK? Pad Prik used pre boiled slices of pork in a bland sauce with sliced zucchini and to baby ears of corn as sole vegetable/garnish. Did not have what was on the wipe board near the entrance. Tom yum goong was made with a powder mix soup and 3 overcooked shrimp. Overall disgusting!

“So good!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Rama Curry, Lucy Roll, and Pad Thai are the best around. Such a great family business. They win "best of" awards every year. A must if you are in the Maryville area.

“i think they may be struggling”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

today i was not as happy as in the past.
i had to wait to place my order, and i was in a hurry, so i think when i say "i'm ready to order" i should be able to order right then and there without having to wait.
the california roll sushi was just fine, the spicy shrimp soup was my favorite, but the fried bananas were cold - which really was a disappointment.
i would have asked for a replacement, but i didn't have time.
i really think i should not have had to pay for them since i brought this to the attention of the cashier, but i let it slide because i think this restaurant can be great if they keep trying.
they may be struggling, but i think this restaurant has alot of potential, and i hope they stay open and make it big.
the cooks obviously are very adventurous if you look at the full menu, and i think that creativity is a good thing.
