Good Sushi on Fifth!

OK, I’ll admit it—I mainly come here because of their amazing two-for-one sushi roll specials on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. On those nights a good portion of their huge roll menu is up for choosing (you pay for the more expensive one and the cheaper one is free, or you can just get two orders... read more

Granted, from Southern California we eat a lot of really good sushi. The reviews were really mixed, but we figured, how bad could it be? Really Bad!! The options of nigiri were minimal and when I got my tuna the fish was cut so paper thin that you could see through it to the rice. The rolls were boring and... More

Really not a place for quality sushi. A small step better than sushi you'd buy at a supermarket here in the USA. As a bit of a sushi snob, I know good sushi and this was most definitely not in that category. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

They have great specials for the rolls! Must check it out if you like sushi. Now, I say it's great sushi for Playa del Carmen. Please do not compare it to sushi you may have had in Los Angeles or San Francisco... We love coming here with our kids...

I ate there a couple of times and the food is fresh, well prepared, I highly recommend this restaurant to all sushi lovers. And the wine is also excellent and they give you a complimentary tostada with tuna.

Stopped by on our way back from a heavy lift at the gym and the sushi exceeded our expectations. They provide you with an English & Spanish menu so if you don't speak Spanish request the English menu. The rolls are simple yet tasty and it's nice to have something other than Mexican food while here. The wait staff is... More

Good value on 2X1 Monday and Tuesdays. It's fun watching them roll the sushi, people watching is great, though an English menu would be appreciated, as this is located on fifth ave,

I love when it's 2x1 sushi. It's very cheap, they have a vast variety of sushi and the service is always great. Perhaps a little slow but I understand that those are busy days. Regarding the arrachera rice, it was not good (and there's nothing japanese about it, though), so don't even try it. I like the 5th avenue's atmosphere... More

Definitely one of my favorite sushi places in Playa. They have a wide variety of sushi to choose from which is made fresh when you order and they also offer great 2 x 1 promotions during the week. Highly Recommended!
