This upscale pan-Asian spot is a smart date destination, with its small tables, soft music and artistic decor featuring Thai sculptures and colorful koi fish paintings. The menu includes standard rolls and Thai entrees like pad thai and curries, dotted with more imaginative items such as wasabi vegetable rolls wrapped in rice paper and the rainbow dragon maki, a shrimp tempura roll covered in a variety of raw fish. They also offer a selection of Chinese and Korean dishes and a list of signature drinks including a mango martini. Expect crowds in the summer when the cute white picket fence-lined patio opens.
