Thaicoon & Sushi Bar
Thaicoon is located on Briarcliff near Emory. (They also have a location in Marietta.) Given that I'd spotted it twice in the past week, when an appointment brought me back to the area, I had to try it.
I didn't sit at the sushi bar because I wanted to enjoy the view of the sunny day. The sushi bar is very well stocked and has several sushi chefs behind it. I tried a variety of sushi plus a sasimi sampler that isn't shown here. It was all very fresh and good. My absolute favorite was the salmon sasimi---the buttery richness of salmon is always my favorite.
Can I use this forum to register a complaint against stunt sushi, even though I know that any such complaint is bound to be fruitless? The waitress suggested that I try their special sushi, which had a huge number of ingredients and two sauces. It sounded too complicated for me. I believe that, in general, simple is better in sushi and sasimi. If the fish is as good as it should be, you don't need a lot of other ingredients competing for your attention.
