The calamari here is the perfect texture, not chewy at all with a lighter-style batter. The hoisen-plum sauce that comes with it has a light sweetness, but other dipping sauces are served with a variety of gorgeous flavors from hot wasabi to a sweet and sour. Another small plate that is consistently delicious is the ahi Napoleon—a mix of chopped, raw ahi tuna and avocado tiered between layers of deep-fried wonton squares. For an adventurous mixed drink, try the drunken Buddha. It consists of sake and lemoncello served with a "Buddha button," a little flower that, when chewed, creates a tingling sensation in your mouth. The Asian-inspired décor has a dramatic, modern feel. The separate lounge area is the perfect place to hang out and socialize with friends. Its dark, velvet interior is highlighted by a long, thin gas fire feature along the wall. If that's not your style, the outdoor patio also is an enjoyable place to enjoy the weather and people-watch.
