Located in the former location of Maia in Villanova, Azie on Main is another restaurant by Win Signature Restaurants.  The owners Win and Sutida Somboonsong and they also own Teikoku, Mikado Thai Pepper and Flavor on the Main Line.

We went here on a whim because my parents wanted to watch my son and we looked forward to some good sushi and a nice treat for a night out.

I first need to apologize for the long hiatus from reviewing Philadelphia restaurants.  My girl friend fiance got injured working out a few weeks ago and has been off of her feet.  This, unfortunately, has prevented us for trekking to new and different spots to enjoy some meals.  She was feeling better this weekend so we decided to give Samurai Japanese Restaurant a look-see.
Overall, we had a pretty good meal.  The restaurant had a nice crowd for a hot Saturday night in the middle of June.

Kim and I continue to search and search for a good bowl of Pho. We received a coupon for Pho Thai Nam a few weeks ago and we decided to give it a try. Recently, we have been disappointed by Pho at both Vietnam and Wild Rice. Both of these establishment had OK Pho, but nothing as good as South Philly.

Let’s face it, a Japanese buffet is not very common. Typically, an Asian food buffet is chock full of Won Ton soup, General Tsos chicken and egg rolls. But, Minado is quite different.

AS you walk in to the expansive dining room, you are quickly whisked away to a seat and asked for drink order from the wait staff. Kim and I ordered drinks and immediately went to take a walk around the immense buffet tables.

Kim and I were hankering for some Pho. We normally make our way down to Pho Ha in South Philly. But, we were meeting some folks in Northern Liberties and didn’t want to go all the way to South Philly, so we decided to five Vietnam a try. We had reservations but still had to wait upstairs in the bar for about 15 minutes waiting for our table. But, it gave us an excuse to try some Vietnamese beers and check out the decor. Both are excellent, BTW.
