We happened upon this restaurant walking around the historic area, kids were hungry and it looked inviting with a Chinese and sushi menu. Seems like a bar more than a restaurant. We sat at high top table and waited a bit for service.

We ordered a few rolls and two Chinese dishes, the teriyake beef and orange chicken. Both dishes were pretty bland and were made with commercial food service type meat. The sauce on the beef was almost tasteless and came with broccoli, carrots and celery. The chicken didn't have any orange rind or other distinct flavoring.

The sushi was ok, nothing special. We had spicy tuna, California and the shrimp tempura; was upsold/served a fancier shrimp tempura roll and didn't bother dealing with it.

If you are passing through the area, I am sure you can do better.

Found this restaurant on Sunday stroll in downtown and decided to have a drink and then some food. Perfect in everyway while we sat outside and watched the Flagstaff world go by, definitely recommended!

Indoor/outdoor seating. We had lunch here on a Sunday after a local festival. We enjoyed Asian food for lunch. The Yellow Curry Chicken was delicious and aggressively seasoned. The Pad Thai would have been good, the flavor was, the pork however was like jerky, likely microwaved. The service was pleasant if a little slow for we ate indoors and most of the action was on the patio. Most of the patrons seemed to be enjoying sushi rolls. Next time. Happy Hour is all day Sunday. We sipped house wine at $2.50 a glass, quite the bargain.

We were walking the old town and happened across this attractive sushi restaurant advertising great all day HH prices. We did not order food, but the menu was interesting and if we had more time would have returned. Great value on brews and very pretty patio.

First visit--Lindsey arrived @ the table welcoming us with a big smile. She offered suggestions to our inquiries and eagerly accommodated a special request. Her attention was not over done but rather it flowed like the winds that gradually increased.
Well drinks and beer on tap were $2.50, we were readily served. We shared two appetizers; crab puffs and lettuce wraps with ginger sauce. Tasty, affordable though a bit salty for my tastebuds. When inquired about MSG, waitress did not know but the general manager, Daren honestly answered the question by coming to our table. He was personable, interactive and believe someone you might approach re: any comment. His enthusiasm led us to schedule a return visit to listen to music and dance Th-Sat. nights.
