Last week my wife and I decided to celebrate my 50th birthday at Azie on Main. We had heard mixed reviews, but my wife (being the sushi lover she is) wanted to try the restaurant. I also enjoy sushi, but not to the extent that she does.

Went for a birthday dinner on a Sunday. Perhaps a younger crowd comes in on Fridays & Saturdays - this evening the place was less than half full at 7pm, with a predominantly well-to-do Main Line crowd. As for dining areas, there is a small room as you enter which seems less than ideal; the main room with booths along one wall and the sushi chefs and a counter along the other; another large room with a window, and yet another room beyond this that I did not see. We sat in the 3rd room in the corner by the window. The booths in the main room, while large enough for four, seem to be the best bet for two, as each booth has a bit of privacy and you can watch the sushi chefs working across the way as well. Had I known, we would have asked to be seated there. Note that when it is warm enough they have an outdoor area also.

For appetizers we ordered the Cream Cheese and Crab Spring Roll and Tropical Fruit Salad. The former was an obvious take on crab rangoons, with three somewhat petite spring rolls and apricot sauce. They were tasty, but without the typical dryness and toughness of a rangoon wanton. The fruit salad was a genuine fruit salad, as opposed to a salad with fruit, consisting of strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, blueberries, various melons, etc. We ordered a side of sweet french fries that were sweet potatoes, presumably baked, and covered with a sweet glaze. As tasty as these were I got a little tired of them as spuds after a while, perhaps for the lack of saltiness. For the entree I ordered the Pan Fried Halibut with zuchini tempura on top, all on a bed of lobster and cheese risotto. A portion sizable enough to fill you without over-filling you, and very tasty. I also ordered the Spicy Scallop Roll, which was good and fresh, but didn't taste of scallops per se, more like pretty much every other kind of sushi. My guest ordered and enjoyed the Sweet Potato Sushi, The Suzuki (Striped Bass), and the Asparagus roll, which was thickly packed with Asparagus, if that's your thing. We both shared the unconventional New Philly Roll, which is heavy on the Kobe beef rather than cream cheese, and in this way very different from your typical seafood based sushi. Some of the best sounding sushi were $20 a roll, which was disappointing, and our bill for all this came to over $100 with tip. We did not have dessert but the chocolate fondue did sound tempting. Overall a nice place, but for the price I'm a bit less excited about my experience there.

Pros: Decor, service, variety of entrees

Cons: Not the most economical sushi experience
