  1. Search the southwest board for LOS or Lotus of Siam.

    Sushi Hana is supposed to be a great local sushi place that is on our to do list. Nobu and Okada have great sushi but they are expensive.

    1. I can't speak about the middle-eastern request but on the others ...

      Thai:

      I'm sure it almost goes without saying but Lotus of Siam ( LOS ) on Sahara has been considered by some to be the best Thai restaurant in the country. I personally think the food is outstanding despite the strip mall location and cheesey decor. Highly recommended.

      Mexican:

      For really good Mexican I head to Bonito Michoacan ( or really either of the Michoacan spots - although some will tell you that Lindo is better than Bonito ... ). The food is really good and seems pretty authentic to me, although I admit that I'm not an expert in the field. Give it a try.

        2. I've eaten at Viva Mercado's Mexican Restaurant...the place is absolutely delicious - it's where I held my wedding reception a month ago. Everyone in my party complimented me on my choice of restaurant. We had carne asada, some lovely garlic shrimp, really good (not afterthoughts) rice & beans. Anyway, the menu was huge and the ambiance just right.

          Good luck.
