The nod to nature is in more than just the name: rich blond wood, bamboo poles, and beautiful fresh flowers set a Zen-like atmosphere for dining. Rain’s (overpriced) Asian food, however, is not quite so transcendent. Delicate Vietnamese summer rolls, a cool and spicy papaya salad, and substantial shrimp and pork pot-stickers are standouts from the appetizer menu. Mixed Asian greens are on the sour side though, and the spicy tuna roll is—frustratingly, at $11.50—under whelming. The seafood entrees tend to be better bets than the chicken dishes: wok-seared shrimp with coconut red curry and the crispy whole fish (served propped up on a tray so it appears to be in mid-swim) are pretty tasty. Definitely try the crispy apple and banana spring rolls with coconut and red bean ice creams—they’re a taste of bliss that might elicit an ohm or two.
