The sushi is great, they have been practicing for many years and have it down to an art. Creative rolls and other dishes. Run and operated by the owners so the service and food quality are consistent and great.

I was not expecting to find such a great sushi place here. Although fresh fish in a beach town is not rare, it is rare to find a great japanese sushi restaurant. Everything we tried was delicious. Our favorite being the Sashimi Mixto. Their sake is also a nice change from the local beer options.

Hubs and I ate sushi 3x over the course of a weeklong surfing holiday in the area. Incredible flavour (not sure about the previous comment on rice vinegar) but we found it delicious. The summer roll is our favourite, but the Tico and Dominical are tasty too! Service is excellent and atmosphere particularly comfortable. :-)

This is the worst sushi we've ever had. There is way too much rice vinegar in the rice and it overpowers everything. The fish is not great, they give you such a tiny amount in the rolls and even as the sashimi. We're from NY, and we get spoiled with a lot of good sushi, but this is the worst... More

The service was fantastic, the meals were absolutely delicious - so good I ate their three nights in a row! The local husband and wife team were super friendly and the location couldn't be better!

I had Spicy tuna, edamame, and Supporo beer. Really nice, small family place. Excellent everything! Left at stop sign and its 40 meters down on the left.

Like most reviewers, I thought "Hmmm...sushi in Dominical?" I loved this place. A friend drove, right on the main road and easy to find. We were greeted by our server, Jota. Ordered our food and enjoyed quick and efficient service. Huge portion of Miso Soup with avocado! Kamikaze and Bruce Lee rolls. Both rolls were fresh and tasty. I ordered... More

Unbelievable sushi. We had the big boat full of sushi, and the Kamikasi rolls. It was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this place!

I liked the authenticity of the food, and the ice cold Sapporo beers. A little bit of japan in a tropical beach paradise setting

I went to this sushi place after reading all the glowing reviews. Although the food was attractively displayed and tasted good they served us one kind of fish with our sushi deluxe sampler. It just seems some local fish may be suitable for sushi not just tuna.
