Restaurant Review

Posted By on November 18, 2004

Seven Moons was really good. For those of you who don't know, it's a restaurant in North Kingstown, up route 1 past Quonset, which features a variety of pan asian quisine. Chinese, japanese, vietnamese, thai, and more. We had a sushi/sashimi platter and assorted tempura. I got a bowl of Miso soup. The soup was excellent, and the sushi was even better. My only comment is that they don't use a lot of rice there, probably half as much as other places. The fish is the same size as one would normally expect. Of course, less rice does make the sushi easier to eat. The tempura was good, though a little oily on the sweet potatoes. However, the batter was excellent, and the tempura shrimp superb. The service was quick and nice and (importantly for us gaijin) spoke english very well (at least, the waitress we had did). Oh, and Liz says they make a decent martini (she got some Orange concoction that tasted like kool-aid with booze, but, she liked it). The tables are cute – they have these low japanese-style tables, except instead of sitting cross-legged, there are wells for your feet, so you are sitting normally, but it has the same effect as a low table. I thought it was very cool.

Verdict: We'll definitely be back, and I think we need to take sometime too.
