“Out of this world Sushi”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great atmosphere and even better sushi. Very fresh and great selection of not only sushi but other dishes as well. Try one of their specialty sake drinks you will not be disappointed.

“Just Go!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Wow. This place was great! An all around amazing experience from the extremely polite & friendly staff to the unique menu options. A Super trendy unique spot located on Main Street in Sarasota. Can't believe I've never been here before this past trip. We ordered the Papaya Salad to start (medium heat) and it was super fresh and delicious along with the Delectable D Sushi Roll of their specialty board. Loved both. We were giving soup and a spring roll which were both very tasty as well. For our main courses we ordered and shared the Sweet & Sour Chicken and also the Curry Chicken Fried Rice, both were very tasty. Unfortunately we didn't have more people with us to order more items to try and share. I was extremely impressed with our meal here and I can't wait to go back. Check it out.

This cozy restaurant is a wonderful surprise offering the best Thai food we've had in the area. Simple decor and a beautiful and helpful server makes dining there always a pleasant experience. Super fresh sushi and ingredients and delicious food. We go there often and have never been disappointed.

Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I came here with my mom. The place is so cute and colorful. Our beautiful server was patient while we tried to make up our minds from the incredible and creative menu. The food was delicious. Try the sexy man roll and lobster roll!

“but, why rap music in a thai bistro?”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

i had thai soup and massaman curry for lunch. food and service quite good. chairs are small, straight-backed, uncomfortable -- not conducive to lingering. atmosphere pleasant EXCEPT for the rap "music" (pardon my bias) -- detracts from the experience, in my view.
