This place was amazing. We came armed with a $100 gift cert and a little cynicism about what kind of Pan-Asian cuisne we would get in Mill Valley. The interior was cozy yet stylish and romantic. Determined to try a little of everything we started off with the Belgian Endive Cups and the special roll of the day which changes daily. The cups were fabulous, made with ground chicken, pine nuts, wonton crisps, and water chestnuts. Served with little slices of endive leaves and plum dipping sauce, it was scrumptious. The portion was great for an appetizer so I almost regretted ordering dinner. My husband's sushi roll consisted of shrimp tempura, crab, unagi, cucumber, avocado and mayo and wrapped in rice, squash, hamachi and sweet unagi sauce. It was huge and amazing! Their special rolls vary daily so we can't guarantee everybody's would be as good. Also served was a container of Chinese doughnuts which were very tasty. As for drinks, I had what tasted like a mojito made of sake. It was delicious with a crisp finish. So I had two. My husband ordered, which I helped him with, two separate sake flights. The filtered ones were definitely better, though. After all that we still had to have dinner! My five spice duck was very good but I have to admit, I was still nibbling on my endive cups in between bites. We also got the lamb which was mouth-wateringly tender. Not ready to stop there, we decided to have dessert and the chocolate creme and berry panna cotta were both delicious. Service was outstanding and our knowledgeable waitress anticipated our every need, such as giving us more endives and smaller spoons for dessert. Overall the food itself was fantastic. This dinner was an adventure which we'll never forget. Was definitely worth the drive from San Jose!
