With wooden lanterns streaming red light across a large dark dining room, it feels like you've entered a private club. Leaving coats at the door, you can also opt to eat downstairs where the mood turns more opium-den than anything else. Larger groups should stay upstairs, but the subterranean "beds" can be very nice for couples and the menu is the same. The cuisine is a cross between Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese. Dishes include a fine selection of sushi, maki, and fantastic ura maki rolls, as well as steaming pho and dim sum. There's also a weekly menu that always has a few delectable surprises like seared scallops on nashi-pear chutney, or beef tenderloin with Asian mushroom ragout.
