Starter plates that stand out include the chicken satay, rock shrimp tempura and miso-marinated Chilean sea bass. The sushi menu includes traditional rolls and definitive must-tries like the signature Black “N” Pink roll (made with shrimp tempura, avocado, crabmeat topping and black tobiko with a strawberry sauce) and the Tuna Amazing roll (made with white-tuna tempura, spicy tuna and avocado, then topped with pepper tuna, roe and mango sauce). From the wok, the Thai-style sautéed basil over chicken and the drunken noodle bowl are popular mains. Lunch and dinner bento boxes offer a taste from all the chef stations.
