The menu is the same as Surin's so we sometimes frequent there. Never again! The customer service is horrible! Just try pointing out the lipstick on your glass or other unmentionables without the waiter pointedly ignoring you or becoming belligerent. Seriously? Complaints are completely unneeded.
Bang for your Buck Sushi – As far as mid-range sushi is concerned (not as expensive as MF, not as cheap as Ru Sans), Harry and Sons definitely has the game on lock down. With a bar (alcohol, not sushi) greeting you to the right, and seating to the left, along with a back room and patio, the room is decorated with traditional Asian restaurant flare, though it still feels quite dated. Rolls like the "rainbow roll" are loaded up with fresh fish, though the true sushi lover will dig the thickly sliced shashimi. The friendly staff are surprisingly patient considering the joint is usually pretty full. Try a Tiger beer or split a warm bottle of sake with your date. Parking can be found for free along the neighborhood streets, but there is also a nearby pay lot.
Save cash: Noodle bowl lunch – I used to live in Virginia Highland (not "the Highlands" as so many of the uneducated residents now call it) and what's now Pozole used to be a place called Surin Thai Bowl, or "The Noodle Bowl" as my roommate and I endearingly referred to it. Now this was owned by the same people that own Harry and Sons & Surin of Thailand, but basically only did these glorious Americanized noodle bowls. Sadly the place closed but Harry & Son's still does one of the staples at lunch, the Chicken Noodle Bowl.
For $7, you basically get a bowl of pad thai noodles covered in a curry broth that tastes like thai coconut soup, all of which is topped with grilled chicken. Its super filling, hearty and is guaranteed to leave you with nice to-go container. Sort of like eating pho, it's hard to eat both broth and noodles, but overall (esp for $7) this is a good lunch option.
Okay Food, Decent Price, Bad Customer Service – I have visited this restaurant twice. My first visit was great. The food was fresh, the service was prompt and the price was very reasonable. There were only two of us and it was about an hour before closing so there weren't that many people in the restaurant.
Because iI enjoyed my first visit, I convinced a group of my friends (about 15) to go for a birthday party. We were seated promptly but the ordering drinks/food and actually getting the food took about an hour. By the time we got our food we were starving.
The thai food that we had ordered was mostly cold, probably because they were trying to bring all the food out at once. Some of us returned the food to the kitchen and it was just merely microwaved and returned to us. The beef was rock solid and most of the food lacked any flavoring. My pad thai had dried out by the time i began eating it...
The sushi that was ordered had very bad coloring to it and it did not look even remotely fresh. It looked like the sushi that you get at the grocery store.
To top it all off, we were charged 18% gratuity which is completely understandable since we had a large crowd. But for some reason, some of us were charged more than 18% and i ended with about 40% charge on the total cost. I called the next day, tried to reach the management, and they never called me back.
I intentionally convinced my friends to come here for a birthday party since i thought it would be a great experience. However, it was quite disappointing and i do not think i will be returning in the future.
Worst thai ever – I had the green curry and it was very bland even after I asked them to make it hot for me. There was nothing thai about the dish at all.The sushi looked good or at least the pictures on the menu did but I prob wont ever give it a chance.
Consistently Great Thai/Sushi! – I just moved back to Atlanta after 6 years. I had to go back to my fav. thai rest. Harry & Sons. After 6 years this restaraunt still proves to be one of my favorites. Chicken Panang and Eggrolls were as usual Yummy! The service was warm and helpful.
This Place Is Really Good...Really Good! – Awesome.... Best sushi and Thai in town. Super Crunch Roll and the Harry Maki Roll, well forgetaboutit. I have had almost everything on the menu and have been blown away by it all. The service is always great, while the restaurant itself has a very easygoing vibe. I just wish I could get some of the lunch menu for dinner.
Great sushi! – I?m a regular visitor here, and will continue to be one! My boyfriend and I come here for a healthy, tasty dinner of soup and sushi. The sushi is always fresh and tasty, although we did order take out from there once and didn?t have a great experience. They aren?t exactly cheap here, but the quality of the food is well worth the extra couple of dollars. I?ve never had a poor experience with the service other than it being slow when they?re crowded. It?s always clean and inviting, and the wait staff has always been more than kind. Love this place!
excellent asian foods in an unassuming package – Harry and Sons in Virginia Highlands is certainly unassuming on the outside - and inside really - but it fits the style of the Highlands. If you aren't looking for it, you can walk right by it. The inside isn't lavishly appointed either; it is the food alone that is the draw for this restaurant. The menu is pan-asian with a little american thrown in. Being a fairly new sushi eater, I was a little intimidated by the menu, actually. However, the tempura roll that I had was amazing. It was a bit pricey for a weekday lunch considering the other cheaper options, but as far as good sushi goes it was right on par. I have never been when it is busy, but judging by the size of the dining room, wait time probably get lengthy on the weekends. If you can sneak away for a weekday late lunch, I would recommend it. We sat right down and had our food in less than 20 minutes. It is a great place to meet friends.
