See title - the bowl I got was delicious. Cilantro, mint, lemongrass, beef, vermicelli, cucumbers, tomatoes, and a vinagrette ... it really doesn't get any better than that. I ate it for a meal and a snack the next day.

This is a small and busy restaurant that seems always crowded. There is a variety of asian food including excellent sushi, pho, and various rice bowls. Food was promptly served and was excellent. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

Very small and cozy inside, but the Sushi Rolls were out of this world. Fast and friendly service from the waitress, and the owner even came out and said "hello". We will definitely stop by again when we visit Durango.

We ate here while visiting Durango about a month ago. It's a small spot and we were there in the late afternoon so we were able to eat at one of the few tables inside. The sushi was WONDERFUL! Everything we ordered was fresh and...More

My husband and I were with our teenaged granddaughter. We had never eaten sushi previously. We ordered very mild styles of sushi. They were expertly prepared and a pleasant taste surprise. Just remember. There is very little sitting and you may have to wait your...More

Very nice little restaurant in the Main Street area downtown. Easy to walk there from DS train station. Very friendly staff. We definitely liked the Funky Monkey and in fact ordered a second one. Sweet sauce and a nice crunchy portion that complements the roll....More
