Like romance novels, dumplings fit tempting tidbits into a small but steamy package. Passionately devour cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese and Thai cuisine at Jasmine in Sylvania.
Jasmine's culinary crew wrangles traditional Eastern ingredients and fresh cuts of seafood to masterfully craft decadent sushi and authentic Japanese and Thai cuisine. A master sushi chef draws on 25 years of experience to create a hodgepodge of sushi delights, such as mixed maki rolls ($12.95 for 18 pieces) or a Chirashi-sushi feast ($19), which tucks celebrated sea treats into a bed of rice after humming a lullaby about Herman Melville’s goldfish muse. Bowls of udon or soba noodles ($9.95 each) arrive festooned with golden pieces of tempura to engulf tongue buds with flash-fried glory, and more than 25 Japanese dinner entrees—such as tender hibachi steak ($16.95) and chicken teriyaki ($12.95)—subdue appetites with a headlock of sustenance. Thai spices infuse a lineup of 50 traditional entrees, such as red-curry chicken or pork ($12.99), which surround succulent proteins in a pentagon of flavors including coconut milk, bamboo shoots, green beans, and lime and basil leaves.
Diners nestle into cushy black booths and sunken tableside seats for two in Jasmine’s spacious dining room. Earth tones and taupe walls inhabit the calm and comfortable space, and traditional Asian décor and warrior statues combine to create a cultural dining experience like the buffet in the basement of the Taj Mahal.
