Have never been disappointed with the quality if food. You are made to feel welcome and the Owner gets involved with welcoming all customers. Sushi is great, not forgetting the crab as well.

The sushi tasted OK (not excellent, but we lived in Japan so we might be picky). The Thai green curry tasted outright weird, like something was off. Ambience was ok, service pretty good. Based on the reviews here I wonder if we just had a...More

While the sushi is expensive, if you can't shake that sashimi craving, sate it here. The fish is always fresh and the Thai food is delicious. This is my go to Thai place. The pad thai prawns are always good as is the seafood salad....More

Lovely place, good service and a good choice of options for curries and various other Thai dishes. I had the green curry and that was awesome. If you like spicy you better tell them though! Recommended!
