It’s late; you’re starving. The kitchen’s probably open, and serving classic appetizers and entrées like rolls, teriyaki, shabu-shabu and sashimi. A separate menu offers cutely named creations such as Moonlight Mackerel and Shrimp Mambo. The latter—stuffed with shrimp and fried to a golden crisp—is delicious, as is the light, four-variety seaweed salad, but don’t expect everything to be a slam dunk. The gargantuan, tender mussels in basil sauce were disappointingly bland, and the miso soup, though stuffed with seaweed, tofu and radish, was a little watery. Finish with the best dessert: the green-tea tiramisu, a foamy light concoction from the next-door bakery Panya.ku
