Weekly theme listings reflect a range of dining possibilities in central Arkansas, across a spectrum of settings and price ranges. To read recent restaurant reviews in their entirety, visit arkansasonline.com/restaurants.

Asian

CHANG THAI & ASIAN CUISINE

9830 Arkansas 107, Sherwood, (501) 835-4488

This 4-year-old mom-and-pop operation has expanded into a third storefront in a north-of-North Hills strip center and there's no longer a buffet. It's worth the drive if you're interested in genuine, decently priced Thai food (the menu also has a few pan-Asian options) made with fresh ingredients. They'll make it mild or as hot as you want it with, as a bonus, nice plate presentation.

Lunch, dinner Mon-Fri, dinner Sat, lunch Sun. No alcohol. Bargain-Moderate.

LILLY'S DIM SUM THEN SOME

11121 N. Rodney Parham Road, Little Rock, (501) 716-2700

Owner Nancy Tesmer's menu continues to widen local dining horizons with commendable Pan-Asian food ranging from Pad Thai to Korean Bibim Bop with grilled steak to sukiyaki-style Japanese noodles.

Lunch, dinner daily. Beer, wine. Reservations (six or more people). Moderate.

THAI TASTE

1516 W. Main St., Jacksonville, (501) 985-1854

Pass up the low-common-denominator buffet and stick to the menu (including top-notch versions of Pad Thai and curry selections) at this authentic Thai restaurant, which offers delicious dishes deftly seasoned to the customer's taste in a homey storefront.

Lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. No alcohol. Reservations. Bargain-Moderate.

TOKYO HOUSE

11 Shackleford Drive, Little Rock, (501) 219-4286

Tokyo House has a menu, allegedly, but there's no reason to use it when the abundant, continually replenished buffet offers everything from impressive sushi (continuously made by skilled chefs) to Chinese dishes like saucy teriyaki beef, garlicky pork gyoza and tempura shrimp, to upscale indulgences (including crab legs Friday through Sunday).

Lunch, dinner daily. Beer, wine. Moderate.

VANLANG

3600 S. University Ave., Little Rock, (501) 570-7700

The menu at what used to be a Vietnamese eatery is now about half Vietnamese and half Korean, and it draws a good many Asian customers, perhaps a testament to the authentic nature of its seafood dishes and other items.

Lunch, dinner daily. Beer, wine. Reservations. Bargain-Moderate.

Brazilian

CAFE BOSSA NOVA

2701 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, (501) 614-6682

Owner-chef Rosalia Monroe's varied menu, strong on chicken, seafood and vegetarian, will open the eyes of diners who stereotype Brazilian cuisine by envisioning hefty chunks of grilled meat. She also offers baked goods at her eponymous Rosalia's Family Bakery in the same curved strip center.

Lunch, dinner Tue-Sat; brunch Sun. Full bar. Corkage fee. Reservations (five or more people). Moderate.
