I can say everything I tasted was amazing! The sushi was unreal and the 'Happy Family' dish was delicious! The servers were very nice but clearly over worked and stayed busy the entire time. The wait was a bit much, but the food made up for it! So, I say go with someone you enjoy, order sushi and a meal and the time won't be a bother! ;)

I have been a loyal customer since Pacific opened, but the service for the past year has been ridiculous. Should you choose to place a carry-out order or even worse dine-in, be prepared to wait an hour or more for any dish to arrive at your table or be available for takeout. They refuse to hire additional staff to meet the demand. I can only imagine it's to keep more of their profit because they charge premium prices due to very little competition in the area. Yes, the food is good, but it's not worth the wait. Some elsewhere until they get their act together.

The word is definitely getting out about this outstanding Chinese and Sushi restaurant. Small, clean, and outstanding food. Go early or go for lunch. You won't regret it!

We visit the area once a year for a few days and a must for us is some really fine sushi and they have it. We have eaten there three times now. Seaweed salad was crisp and cold and excellent. It pains me to say that the edamame was not as good as we've had other places and I rated it as just OK. We asked the waitress about some specials and she listed a Fatty Tuna, a pepper Tuna, and a Striped Bass carpaccio. All was wonderful in its taste and presentation and we got good choices from our waitress. They have an extensive menu and it's hard to cut our choices to just a few. Can't wait until next year.

Tucked away in the secluded Palencia shopping center, Pacific Asian is a treasure worth looking for. The fish is as fresh as can be found in Vancouver or Hawaii. The rolls are innovative and plated like art. The combinations of sweet, savory and spicy dance in your mouth while Chef Mas comes up with delight after delight.
You'd never guess that the Chinese food is equally phenomenal. The soup will warm your heart, the salads and sauces will tingle your taste buds. Sit at the sushi bar and chat with the maestro. His talent has no limits.
