My favorite is the green curry! Sushi is awesome too! We haven't had anything we don't like yet here. Always fresh ingredients on the salad bar and homemade soups. Can't beat the prices either.

Omg! We love this place. Sushi is fresh, staff is so sweet. They have an extensive menu and the price is good. We tried a Groupon and it was well worth it.
