Our meals came out 45 min. apart and the chicken was tough and crunchy. Sushi was tasty but my husband finished it about a 1/2 hour before my meal was ready.

This is a hidden gem tucked back on a side street in Southport! We loved the fresh sushi! It is a moderately priced restaurant, and the service is very good!

We popped in here and had a delicous meals! My husband got brave and ordered a 3 Thai pepper meal which he did have trouble eating it was so hot. He took most home and added milk to lighten it up a bit, but he did say it was delish. I had THE best PAD THAI anywhere ever. Had enough... More

Sometimes it is hard to find decent ethnic foods in small towns, but this one breaks that rule. Thai here is about as good as I've found in the area. I had the Panang beef lunch which came with soup and a spring roll. Plenty of food, good flavors.Enjoyed the soup although some local palates might find it a bit... More

I prefer the Thai dishes, but my partner loves sushi. I go for the sashimi sometimes, but my real favorite is the coconut soup. I often get a take-away order of that soup to have the next day.

I've been to Thai peppers at least 10 times in the last 7-8 years and it's consistently a great meal. We generall go with some sushi and at least one Thai main. Hamachi sushi is always very fresh, and the unagi is excellent, not fatty, and cooked perfectly. They have great lunch specials and today I had the Unagi lover's... More

Great lunch specials. Very welcoming. I loved my Green Papya salad. Not too spicy, lots of flavor and fresh.

I stayed near here for my college internship over the summer and this was my favorite place to eat. I really miss it - I crave this dang amazing sushi all the time. Best I've had, and you get to watch them preparing it at the sushi bar. I liked the slightly more tucked away location (it was never too... More

Best thing is the Tom Yum Soup. Really recommend it. However, if you are looking for truly authentic, this is not it. It's difficult to get ingredients to make it the real thing. (lived in Asia for 20 years)

We dropped in for an after dinner meeting without reservations. Seated immediately even during tourist season as this is an off the beaten path very good restaurant. Drink orders were filled quickly and refreshingly. Menu is extensive and should match anyone's pallet. I decided on tempura vegetable appetizer for my main course. Eveything came piping hot and tasty. More than... More
