Niwana in Charles Village

Looking for something new, I bought a coupon last month for Niwana, on 33rd between Charles and St. Paul. Went today for lunch with a friend and was pleasantly suprised, Lovely dining room, full bar plus sushi bar. Since there were only 2 of us we didn't get to try much, but what we had was delicious. I had a cucumber salad which was dressed in a very light vinagary wasabi mayonaise. I could have licked the bowl the dressing was so good. I had a rainbow roll which was very fresh and yumnmy, 8 large pieces. My friend had a seafood and scallion pancake, which was overlapping the plate. It was FULL of octopus, shrimp, fish and scallion, and was served with a great soy/sesame sauce. My friend will have enough for another lunch and/or dinner. Then we ordered age tofu, which came out crisp and golden, in another tasty sauce. With a draft and a cocktail, and the coupon, we paid 8 bucks each. I've only found one other comment on this board, and think the poster might want to try again! The prices were good...next time I will try the Korean side. Much better than driving out to Ellicott City!
