—€” Serena Maria Daniels finds high-end sushi for wallet-friendly prices at Feng Taste:"True, it's not as sexy a location as Detroit center would be, but what it lacks in a hip ZIP code is more than made up for with his creations at the sushi bar. And this time, he can offer his expertise at much less intimidating price." The critic writes that portions "are decidedly large. The gyoza, whose outer dough was nice and crispy and pork filling lightly seasoned, came out six per serving. The soups were not in the usual dainty cup, but rather decently sized bowls so we can really enjoy the flavors a bit longer." Among the sushi rolls, "the Orchard Lake is an unabashedly lavish feast in roll form." [Metro Times]

— The big portions and Thai flavors at Bangkok 96 receive high praise from Molly Abraham: "Be aware that there's nothing fancy about the 120-seat restaurant, but the lack of décor won't matter the moment a fragrant platter of bamboo shoots, peapods, mushrooms, carrots and shrimp in a resonant brown sauce, or a bowl of hot and sour soup, or a heap of fried rice with bright green onions, eggs and chicken comes to the table. The food is the star of the show here," the critic writes. "Small plates? Not here. At lunch, for less than $10, people may choose from a wide range of colorful curries with the underlying richness of coconut milk and stir-fries studded with fresh broccoli, green peppers and peas." Two and a half stars. [Detroit News]
