This tranquil new space on 6th Ave. and 11th. Street with a large buddha sitting on a waterfall in the back of the beautifully constucted space has a great bangin' bargain lunch. You are welcomed into the restaurant by a large tank full of fish with a backsplash of stones. The restaurant has walls of carved stones and buddahs which are very pretty. Thai, Vietnamese and sushi are all served here with great, gracious service. Just opened a few months their food offerings are well executed. Lunch specials at $9. offer a main course with a salad, soup, rice and choice of spring roll or shrimp and chicken dumplings. Your order arrives in a quartered plate with all fresh offerings. The thai shrimp was freshly cooked, and well seasoned. Sushi lunches start a $10 and include a soup and salad. I indulged in the sushi lunch which is preceeded by a large mesclun salad and mildly flavored miso. The sushi although serviceable included a california roll with too cold rice, but still a good, quick sushi lunch fix on the cheap.
