Late-night Thai and sushi from a vet of Tsunami and Sushi Wabi.

Our Review

The menu at this BYO Thai-sushi place offers few surprises, but when we inquired about Thai specials not on the menu, our waitress, intrigued, offered to bring out whatever they had on hand. The result was a plate of slightly gamy grilled pork neck with a spicy dipping sauce and a papaya salad done Thai style—though instead of the fiery, tart, crunchy papaya shreds we were expecting, this version was candy sweet. Still, both dishes tasted all right alongside crab fried rice—for once not crab—and tiny noodle-stuffed egg rolls. We didn't have as much luck with the sushi: scallops (hotategai) were seared to a jerkylike consistency and plated on top of what tasted like lunch-box applesauce, and the fish in the sunomono moriawase (vinegared raw fish and seaweed salad) was a chore to swallow. All things raw, including a spicy tuna roll, were served ice cold, as if fresh from the Jewel rather than the sea.
