    Great

    I just went here for the first time last night, looking for Thai in the neighorhood that I hadn't tried yet. We started with the crispy calamari, which were excellent, and the Vietnamese summer rolls, which were basic but still very good. My Thai red curry with chicken was great as was the tangerine chicken. The atmosphere and service were top notch and I will definitely be returning.

    dry rice, bad service, subpar

    Firstly, I went here cause I had a restaurant.com gift certificate and they refused to accept it, why do they still have their name on the website it they dont!!!! The rice as someone said earlier was dry, the sushi i had spicy tuna and avocado were overprices, the sushi was not that great, avocado was ok I will not go back here again, as the customer service was sub-par

    Dry Rice

    Ordered a few rolls with brown rice (and i know they say that brown rice doesn't stick as well) but the rice just completely fell off. The rice was extremely dry and when I asked the waiter if this was normal he told me that it's a different type of grain? Who knows, but I've had better.

    Very impressed

    I heard great things about this place and finally decided to try it last night for the first time. my expectations were exceeded. I had the miso soup for an appetizer and the sizzling tofu as an entree. Both were delicious (I have never had tofu that tasted like that in my life- crispy on the outside, an inside that melted in my mouth, and full of flavor) and portions are very generous. My friend and I shared sake that was very tasty and came in a cute bamboo pitcher. Her rock shrimp tempura sushi was amazing and they gave much more than I have ever seen when ordering one roll. My other friend ordered the sashimi tasting sampler. I didn't try it but she was very satisfied. She eats sushi and sashimi quite often and said that the quality of the fish was outstanding. For the quality of the food, the comfortable atmosphere, and the very attentive staff, the prices are very reasonable. I am a huge fan. I will definitely be back!

    do it again!

    Just had dinner here wit my bff tonite and it was really good. We began wit the pan fried dumpling (good sauce), and we shares the shrimp pinapple fried rice, crispy chicken in a chilli sauce (yum) and mango chicken. It was all beautifully presented, well executed and the service was great. I agree wit a previous comment u get to know a server and it does comfort u and give u a sense of a second home. Its was all really good I will go again!

    Expect The Unexpected

    Trolling these pages seeking a taste from countries far away and roads less travelled. The fire in my belly dwindled with one taste of Amber and I was had at "yum". The menu is unassuming and looks typical. I almost turned the page. How good can a $6 spicy salmon roll be, or a $10 pad thai, or a $3.50 wonton soup all served up from the same kitchen? Upon delivery I realized the salmon roll appeared small, the pad thai dish was overly garnished on one side, and the wonton soup was cloudy. We all know the ending here but it was not to be. The spicy salmon roll was so delicately crafted, the salmon superbly minced and seasoned, it melted in my mouth and I craved more. So delicious. I am hooked. The pad thai noodles were thin like vermicelli but were flat like thai pad should be. Ive never seen such light noodles, also tossed very delicately in the perfect splash of sweet yet tangy pad thai sauce. I requested no nuts and you bet my wish was granted. The dish was extraordinarily light but extremely filling. Perfect. Then the wonton soup. I can't explain it but I enjoy the soup last. I find it aids in digestion and washes off the taste of the dinner. I am probably alone on this. Anyhow it was a mushroom chicken broth which normally I don't care for but this one was light and very smooth. I picked the large shitakes out and drank it down to find three of the most delicious asian fusion wontons at the bottom. What a treat. They were big tender not too not dense but not too fluffy balls of meat with a thin skin pressed firmly together by hand. It was a cross between the best dim sum and the best gyoza. A real Asian fusion dumpling that was substantial in the first bite or two then melts away as your taste buds clamour and fight for the last morsel. If I were to make dumplings they would be like these. Now I am not always generous with my reviews. See my review of Otto's Cafe for contrast. Amber was special. Not what I expected.
