Since they opened in Sanborondon they moved the main chefs there and now the quality or food has gone down, previously the rolls has less rice and more fish now it's loaded with rice. I have been eating here weekly and the last few months everything has changed. Service has become slow as well, last visit there were 7 staff... More

Small place but food overall is very good. But be careful ordering if you are from US. The rolls are very big, the shrimp tempura comes with Ten large pieces, and even the miso soup alone is a meal as it has a lot of seaweed and tofu.

Delicious japanese food and the place is very cozy, ask for a sit in the sushi bar. Cevichado roll is the best roll there. Miso soup is also delicious..put the hot powder on it.

Nice menu, good prices and delicious food. Fish is of great quality so don't shy away from the sashimi. The ceviche roll is AMAZING, but I would recommend asking for less of the white sauce they put on it. Shrimp tempura is also highly recommended. Service was very good and excellent for Guayaquil.

This place is pretty simple, small, and its menu reflects a very classic approach for sushi. You wont find many eccentric rolls or anything like it. Sushi here is as fresh as it gets, and a good sign is that you see many Japanese visitors eat there. Price is also very good, you will want to keep coming back.
