We stumbled upon this little gem while walking through Old San Juan. We were looking to eat something different than the traditional Puerto Rican food since we had been eating that all vacation. We walked right in and were seated right away on a Saturday night. The staff was very courteous. The sushi was great and very reasonably priced. We... More

I eat a lot of sushi in a lot places.... And unfortunately I would have to rate the sushi here as perhaps the worst I have had... I found it so unappetizing I had two pieces and left the rest of the plate for it to go back to the kitchen. However, two others at our table had the churasco... More

The place is little and a little pricey, but the chef was very funny, especially with the children. The food quality is very good.

Without the dashes. Restaurant seems as authentic as Asian can be in PR. A lovely detour from the local food.

Worse service of my life. Even though there weren't that many people the waitress took forever to come over. She forgot her tray of dirty cups at our table and only came to take our order after we sat for about 30-40 minutes. After finally getting our food, we got the sushi combination and sushi roll combination (average at best)... More

Bit of Japan in San Juan. Great sushi, decent service, but the bacon fried rice was great. If you are tired of caribbean food or is a quick stop on a cruise, J taste is the place.

We had chicken and shrimp teriyaki and had a great dining experience. Loved the food and potions were generous. May have again before holiday is out.

Excellent sushi based on a friend assessment. Food served at intervals versus at once. Smoke from Teppanyaki spoiled our dinning experience.
