Owners: Muttana Anan and Weera “Willie” Suthaso
When did the restaurant open? Jan. 3, 2012.
What type of food do you serve? We serve both Japanese and Thai cuisine.
Some of the more popular Thai dishes are the Tom Yum Goong, a seafood soup with shrimp, and Chicken Satay.
Our popular Japanese items are the Hamachi Jalapeno and the Bluefin Tuna appetizers. And we have special rolls: people really like the Lobster Tempura Roll, which is crunchy on the outside and tasty inside. The Raider Roll is spicy tuna with eel inside. It’s delicious. Our Japanese supplier provides us with very fresh fish.
Is there a story behind the name of your restaurant? We tried many names. In Thai, Bluefin has a lucky meaning.
How did you decide to open in Alameda? We moved from Florida to be nearer family.
What do you think of Alameda so far? It’s really friendly and nice. We really like the people here. Business has been unbelievable. We had a full house on the first day and it’s been packed since.
