Best Sushi on the island, but the only sushi there too.

The sushi here is very good, it is not great. Some of the special appetizers can surprise you as well. The wine selection is OK, but not very deep. Be sure that if you like a bottle that they have more than one in stock.

The sushi was the biggest disappointment ever. fish did not have any taste, the rolls itself seemed that somebody prepared it for the first time, and warmed the fish in microwave, the terrible experience ever, better stay off from this sushi place, prices are expensive and not suites the preparation of the food at all. i think sushi rolls in...

My fiancé and I are on vacation with his family, and we were able to sneak off and have a date night. We heard Dashi was the only real sushi on the island, and we are both big sushi fans. We were advised to make a reservation, but it was not too busy for our 6:30 dinner. The service was... More

The fish is usually frozen and may have freezer burn, looks like they use a dull knife to cut it. Not much fish served and thats probably a good thing considering the poor quality. Sad its the only place to get sushi on island. We need a new place to eat, i currently have my fish shipped in frozen from... More

First off the wait staff are great and very friendly and the ambiance is nice. However the food is lackluster. My husband and I love sushi so we valiantly make an effort to come and only wish that it was a quality sushi place. The rolls are small and uneven and have little fish or avocado in them. The rice...

My son in college is in town for the Holiday so we decided to give this place another try (before going to movies) after our last terrible visit to this place because we love sushi but this time was even worse because we have to wait OVER AN HOUR for our food, seriously over an hour wait for our sushi...

Maybe Dashi's was a nice spot some time ago... I can't tell. I've been on island for two years now and in my sushi withdrawal mode, I would frequent this place quite a bit. I liked the ambiance, I enjoyed listening to Steve Katz who played here on Thursdays, but sushi was always disappointing, too much rice, a tiny sliver... More

I had myself and 8 friends here one afternoon and it was delicious. We were all very pleased with the food and my delicious seaweed salad. Also very close walk to the boardwalk

This was only our third visit to Dashi over a couple years. The first time was fairly good given that it's St Croix and sometimes ingredients are difficult to source (not that we are sushi professionals). The second time was at lunch. This time the rolls contained way too much rice and barely any fish or other ingredients. The rolls... More

My family loves sushi especially when we go to Florida, that's why we go to Dashi probably every other week. Last night was the last one due to inexcusable WORSE SERVICE with only us, party of 3, outdoor and less than 10 people inside.
