"Master sushi chef, Elmer Bionson, serves authentic sushi and Japanese cuisine at Azumi's Garden in Auburn Hills. Drawing on culinary influences of the Far East, Mr. Bionson tastefully pulls together the finest dishes from Japan, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Korea, and Vietnam.
Azumi's primary focus is moderately-priced take-out for the time being with soft drinks and bottled water."
"An EMU student favorite, and not just because it's dirt cheap. Not big on atmosphere, but the meals are tasty. New additions to the menu in honor of their recent move."
"Authentic Vietnamese and Chinese food."
More than 250 Vietnamese and Chinese dishes. Vegetarian dishes include appetizers, soups, rice and noodle dishes...hot and spicy to your taste. Spicy dishes include curry, sate, roti, chili, Shanghai noodle, special pepper and grilled dishes. **
This "mini"-spot serves Vietnamese food at its best: a wonderful combination of contrasting textures and subtle tastes. If Chinese food is a symphony, Vietnamese is chamber music. Soups, such as vegetable congee, are highlights, or try the amazing variety of bean drinks and exotic fruit slushes. ****
Oslo patrons can choose between sushi and a longish list of superior Thai dishes; the sushi is sliced and rolled by Korean-born John Riney. Tom kha, the soup with coconut milk and chicken, is both creamy and salty, with generous chunks of chicken. Drunken noodles are peppery yet luscious, the noodles fat and slippery, with a fold-in garnish of fresh basil leaves. Equally delicious was a “signature” dish called simply “Oslo Udon Noodles.” Chicken and shrimp and the usual vegetables join wide noodles of a pleasing firmness in a faintly sweet and certainly hot garlic sauce. Almost all the signatures feature garlic, and none coconut milk, so now you know Chef Rossbach’s tastes.
Pho Hang is a strip-mall storefront on an unlovely strip of Dequindre Road, but who cares: 31 of Pho Hang’s generous entrées can be had for $6, 11 cost $7, and only 14 cost $8 or more. Diners find the real deal at Pho Hang, where they'll get the lightness and, yes, grace of Vietnamese soups, with their strong yet clear broths and arrays of fresh garnishes.
Commerce along the thoroughfares of Madison Heights and Warren isn't pretty. Aging strip malls and asphalt parking lots are the dominant aesthetic. But what these arteries lack in architectural character is made up by a vibrant Southeast Asian community and the abundant restaurants and food markets that cater to it. Within a few square miles, particularly around the area where 13 Mile Road intersects Dequindre, it's easy to find everything from exotic fruit smoothies adorned with tapioca pearls that are sucked in through oversized straws to banh mi sandwiches filled with various processed meat parts such as liver paste and pork skin.
Innovative and unique menu at this breakast and lunch restaurant.
Pleasant decor and ambiance.
Fresh leafy greens and herbs characterize the Vietnamese food served at Thang Long. Try the fresh and flavorful summer rolls, or do it yourself with an order of Thit Bo, which lets you wrap your own chicken, beef or pork. Also excellent are the rice noodle soups, which are meals in themselves. ***
This joint is named after the late Vietnamese- American actress Thuy Trang. "Authentic Vietnamese cuisine, featuring several 'cook your own' dishes."

Come out and celebrate Detroit’s 313th birthday at The Detroit Historical Society’s Streets of Old Detroit exhibit. Groups will work together as historical detectives in a game involving puzzles, questions and learning about the buildings and features within the exhibit modeled after 19th century Detroit. They will also be giving out special birthday treats throughout the day. The birthday festivities will go from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
Get naked! Well, almost naked. Strip on down to your skivvies and head over to the Tangent Gallery this Thursday night for a summer night bike ride, complete with g-strings, brews, neon body paint, glitter and a bunch of rowdy companions. “It’s more than a party. It’s a movement.” Celebrate urban cycling and that hot bod of yours by scooting around Detroit with a bunch of nearly naked strangers. After the ride, there will be cold drinks and hot tunes to shake your ass to. Ride starts at 8:30 p.m.
Every other year, the Puppeteers of America hosts festivals that bring the best and brightest puppeteers to the region. This year's Great Lakes Regional Puppetry Festival comes to Detroit, bringing three days of award-winning shows to the DIA. It all kicks off with the award-winning The Snowflake Man by puppeteer Sarah Frechette (aka Penny Pup from the children's TV show SeeMore's Playhouse), which takes a look at the life of photographer W.A. Bentley with hand-carved traditional Czech marionettes and watercolor paintings. The Snowflake Man plays at 3:30 p.m. at 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org. Check the dia.org for the full schedule. The puppet shows are free with museum admission (and free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties).
Come out and enjoy a night of kings and queens, princesses and duels at the Redford Theaters showing of the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride. This PG rated film is full of hilarity and romance from beginning to end and will spice up any average summer night. Don’t forget to hit the concession stand, which prices are distinctly low and the popcorn is always delicious.
Keith Fields is a trickster. This Brit is known for fooling people as he makes them laugh. And now, living in the U.S., his tricks are reaching a whole new audience. His interactive show ‘Keith Fields – Live and Tricking’ integrates magic, stunts and rip-roaring comedy. Fields has tricked all over the U.S. – from Broadway to Vegas. Hell, he once had Robin Williams as his opening act. You can’t get more official than that.
