And prices are fair. Nearly all hot appetizers, temaki, makimono, soup, and salad selections are under $10. Most Japanese and Thai dinner choices run $14 to $16. Lunch offerings, including sushi/teriyaki combos, cost $9.95 or $10.95 and come with soup.

We can't blame Trisransri for the dreadful concept of tempura Twinkies; this once-proud Hostess snack has been getting dunked into deep fryers for years. We can, however, find fault in this particularly wretched rendition wrapped in flabby, oily-tasting batter. Avoid the Twinkie at all costs — in this case $5.95. Thai doughnuts with condensed milk dipping sauce is a good bet, but mochi-wrapped ice cream is better (choose three flavors, such as mango, cream cheese, and red bean). Thai iced tea gets served in a tall glass and might be dessert enough for some diners — it is one long, cool sip of sweetness.
