Mint2 Thai-Sushi Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This eclectic Asian restaurant offers a huge menu. Maki rolls, nigiri sushi and sashimi, and specialty rolls with funky names compose the sushi offerings. We like the Mint Roll, a deep-fried large portion of spicy tuna, salmon, white tuna, avocado and mint that's served with a special sauce. The spicy crab roll, wrapping fried soft-shell crab, asparagus and avocado, is hit with a just-spicy-enough mayo. Presentations are quite attractive, and the crisp texture contrasted against the tender morsels enhances the taste experience. Thai dishes include a number of barbecue specialties. The beef is a bit too chewy, but the flavor is lovely, and it comes with sticky rice and ginger salad. Curries, noodle dishes and classic Thai and Japanese-inspired salads flesh out the menu. We like the soups, especially those based on coconut milk. For dessert, check out the warm Thai custard, with a compelling but not heavy sweetness. There's also a good mango sticky rice. Enjoy a Thai beer with the food, such as Singha. Here's the best part: midnight sushi cravings may be sated Tuesday-Sunday when the restaurant is open until 2 a.m. (3 a.m. in winter months), although if customers are thinning out, it might close a half hour or so earlier. The restaurant delivers locally.
