Nano Sushi | North Center | Asian, Japanese, Thai | Restaurant
Pan-Asian restaurant in the former Kan Pou space.

Our Review

Replacing the Thai bakery Kan Pou on a nondescript strip of Western, Nano Sushi seemed a more useful addition to the neighborhood’s array of restaurants. Yet a recent visit found the sushi, as chosen by the chef, less than fresh—the shrimp in particular looked as if it had walked over from the nearby Jewel, and proved tough enough to have done just that—and the ebi tempura maki was nothing special. Even the seemingly infallible gomae turned out to be tightly wound, leaving cold patches in the center, and overly lathered with sauce and sesame seeds. The menu also included Thai staples like pad Thai and pad see ew, unfortunate in that the restaurant is located midway between two of the top Thai spots in the city, Sticky Rice and Spoon Thai. The red-and-black interior and the music mix of acid-jazz lounge tunes by anonymous acts all trying to sing like Bono didn’t freshen the atmosphere. Still, it’s hard not to root for a place that trots out a motorized scooter from the back room to make nearby deliveries.
