Everything tastes very fresh at Chinoise!! I don't like Sushi but my husband does, so we are happy to find a restaurant where he can order his sushi and I can get other dishes like a good basic Pad Thai. We like the small restaurant feel, the ability to eat outside on beautiful sunny days and our kids love the food (and the staff are nice when they serve the kids and don't make a fuss about the child seats that can take up a lot of room in their small restaurant). I would go here anytime when given the chance, as a sushi lover or not!!
