Went here 3 night in a row the first time I was here. Steven the owner has done a amazing job. The bar is also a great... More

Enkai is a little hard to find but once you find it, you wont be disappointed. The sushi here is probably the best I have found on the Island. The view isn't too shabby either. Its a great place to get away for lunch, as it isn't too crowded. Very quiet place for lunch and the wait staff is very... More

Enkai is one of my favorite restaurants on the island a hidden jem tucked away in Crown Bay it's well worth the trip. My favorites items on the menu are the jerk tuna, the storm and the "This is how I roll". Just be prepared for having gentle sea breezes not air condition cool you along with a sake or... More

If you like Sushi, Enkai gives you that and a lot more. I enjoy travel and fusion of flavours - besides the regulars Enkai does its own variation that were absolutely delicious. Additionally you can get several dipping sauces which amplify flavor. The service is very friendly, great recommendations and highly attentive. The views of the water are just delightful.... More

This place is a hidden gem! Delicious sushi and VERY fresh. Very friendly staff. Everything we ordered was fantastic, but I highly recommend the This Is How I Roll.

My first visit was very memorable; great location and very attentive service The rolls we had were bursting with flavor - some of the best I've ever eaten. My friends are regulars and they mentioned the menu change to fewer items, but they were also very happy with our meal.

We have loved Enkai and have visited each of our trips down. In November 2014, our last trip, it was excellent. In February, the menu was different, which would have been fine except the rolls were not great. Not sure what might be going on; it was Friday night and it was dead. The new gyoza appetizer sounded good, but... More

I ate on more than 1 occasion here, I am a little particular about the sushi I like and one of the chefs Dan can to see me and asked what I liked and made me my own special dish which was amazing. The bartender Erik was also friendly and welcoming. I would definitely head back if I returned to... More
