I was in the mood for some sushi after getting my haircut and on the way home decided to give Thai Delight a try after looking for sushi in Foursquare. After walking in the door I was quickly greeted by the hostess and my drink order was taken.

I decided on jasmine tea with ice, an order of veggie thai spring rolls, and their spicy vegetable sushi roll. They have a pretty extensive menu both on the sushi and Thai side and it took a lot of willpower not to order more. I had frozen food thawing out in the car for dinner and didn’t want to fill up too much.

My spring rolls came out first. They were hot right out of the frier and was served with a sweet duck like sauce with some chili flakes in it. The spring rolls were good and the sauce was good, however they were the frozen in a box kind and not fresh. I can’t complain though since they at least have veggie spring rolls on the menu. They were the ones that have the little bits of black pepper in them. To me they are the better of the pre made frozen spring roll products in the market.

After I finished my second roll my sushi came out. It was not what I was expecting and that is in a good way. There were ten to twelve pieces of sushi sitting in a puddle of an orange colored sweet spicy sauce and topped with a salad consisting of seaweed, thin strings of carrot, avocado and cucumber. The rolls themselves had asparagus, avocado, cucumber, and takuan. The dish was garnished with black and white sesame seeds. There was also the usual side of pickled ginger and wasabi.

The salad was really good, it was slightly sweet and hot with the slight taste of the salty ocean. When I made it down to one of the rolls, I put on a bit of the wasabi, dipped it in soy and had at it. It was really good, it had the usual taste of sushi with the added benefit of being slightly hot from the sauce it was swimming in to compliment the wasabi. Looking back at the experience I wish I would have put the soy sauce on top because the bottom of the sushi was already saturated with the sauce they had put on the plate. The veggies all complimented each other, and the whole dish was tasty. The only complaint I have with it is that there needed to be more wasabi. I had to use it sparingly, especially with the last few pieces.

The waitstaff were all very friendly and attentive. It was pretty slow, and they were preparing to eat themselves, even with them doing their side work and sitting down to eat they still did not forget about me and checked on me from time to time.

I am going to have to come back again to try their curries and other Thai items. If their sushi is any indicator of the Thai side of the menu I think I might have found the Thai spot to be at in the OKC area. They are not right on Campus Corner so it might be a safe place to go to when school is in session.
