I have eaten here 5+ times, and the food has been mostly awesome. Their peanut curry dish was great, with the exception of the onion overload. . . they said the dish was served on a bed of onions, but at least half the dish is uncooked onions.<br />
I also went with a friend once, who asked the server what sushi she would recommend. She noted that her favorite dish was the most expensive on the menu (i can't remember what it was called, but it was some smoked beef sushi or something). It had WAYYYY too much smoky flavor, and tasted like a cigar. . . <br />
I've probably had 10 other items on the menu though, and they were always good. <br />
The service is really hit or miss. Sometimes it is really fast, other times you wonder if they forgot about you. <br />
The prices are great though. My GF and I went here for an anniversary one time, got 3 dishes and an appetizer, plus drinks and it was less than 40$ with tip. <br />
I would recommend it, but there are definitely some downsides.

I'm really not exaggerating when I say that. The service is horrendous. My husband and I went there with another couple last night. The girls ordered sushi and the guys ordered hot dishes off the Thai menu. We all ordered tea and they gave us one small pot that barely filled all our glasses. We had to repeatedly ask for more; they did not refill beverages without being prompted. 40 minutes after we ordered we still had no food. Finally the waitress came out and said that they guys' food was done, but the sushi wasn't, so did we want her to bring out the hot food while it was still hot? How on earth the hot food was finished first is beyond me, since sushi is extremely quick to prepare, but we said yes, please bring it out while it's hot. It was another 20 minutes before we saw it, and our sushi still wasn't done. My husband and I are vegetarians, and he ordered a dish off the vegetable menu. He got 5 bites into it and discovered pork in his rice. At that point we were ready to tell the server to forget the whole thing, but we didn't see her again for another 20 minutes, at which point she finally brought out the sushi. As soon as she put the sushi down on the table I knew something was wrong, because we've ordered the same dishes there before and they didn't look the same. I asked the server about it and she insisted that everything was correct. I ordered a tempura tofu roll and it was barely edible. The tofu had so much fried batter surrounding it that it wasn't like eating sushi, it was like eating those little fried bits that line the bottom of the tray at Long John Silver's. It was absolutely disgusting, and I didn't even finish it. My spring roll really wasn't at all edible. The pieces were enormous, and poorly assembled, so that you couldn't pick them up or bite into them without them falling apart. It was also missing asparagus, one of the ingredients listed on the menu. When I asked about this at the register the girl who prepared the sushi admitted that they were out and neglected to tell me. It took so long for the server to come back after she brought the sushi finally we got fed up and went up to the register without a check to see if we could just pay and leave. They did not apologize at all, or even acknowledge that they had done a terrible job, even though we were clearly unhappy, as they had to take half of our meal off our check. We will absolutely never go back, and when this place inevitably goes out of business we will throw a huge party and celebrate the presence of a little less evil in the world.
