Restaurant Review: Thai Kani

This quaint little haunt off Kahama Road in Masaki is a refreshing addition to restaurants catering asian cuisine. Featuring a wide selection of sushi and thai dishes, the menu is slightly overwhelming, though the welcoming staff are versed in its contents and happy to guide you. Open a few months, Thai Kani already has quite a following, with dinner reservations required to secure the desired deck seating. Unlike most asian restaurants, a tempting selection of refreshing palate cleansers and delectable desserts are offered for a perfect ending to your meal.
