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

Enkai is one of my favorite restaurants on St. Thomas. I love the atmosphere and the ocean view. The staff is super friendly and always makes you feel right at home.

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

Everytime I'm on island I head here for great sushi. Fresh fresh ingredients. Unique rolls. I'm dreaming still of the jerk tuna sashimi. Great vegetarian options too. I love to sit out on the water, enjoy the view while enjoying a great meal at Enkai. It's worth searching it out. Looking forward to my next visit!

worst sushi ever had. 1st time sushi was okay if you needed a sushi fix but the last time it was beyond awful and the service was just as bad. there is fair sushi at the restaurant at the cruise dock and very good sushi at red hook next to the gentleman's club. don't go. enough said.

I eat only the vegetarian rolls, but my kids love sushi and they thought Enkai was fabulous. I don't think there is anything else on the island that can compare!
