Really nice selection of Chinese, Thai, Japanese and some Pacific Rim dishes. The sushi is excellent. Pro tip: the Evelyn Roll is not listed on the menu, but is crazy good, with a lot of different tastes and textures that come together perfectly. They're addictive....More

This is quickly becoming my favorite Asian restaurant. I can come here and often find Santa Barbara uni, Otoro, and the best Himachi Kama I’ve EVER had, and I’ve had a lot. So far, everything I’ve ordered has been fantastic.
