The best suhsi I tasted. Myt daughter insisted on coming back and she did not even like sushi before :-) Friendly and fast service, prices are very moderate. In the kitchen your wishes are made to come true. I recommend the sushi 3x3 for 120 pesos, it is so tasty and juicy. As for drinks we were ordering mohios or... More

Sushi in Mexico is not the same as in the USA. Was not feeling to well after eating here. Not sure if it was the fish or something else. But not taking any chances and not eating sushi again here. Fish is fresh caught but just not done the way I am used to.... skip this one.

Excellent Stir fry (we had chicken) and the thai salmon grilled on mashed potatoes was outstanding and cooked exactly as I requested. I would definitely recommend this place.

There is a small BBQ outside, wonderful steaks and chicken! We even tried the Wok which was really tasty! The staff is young, works very hard and are... More

The waiters are really polite, the menu it's varied; the sushi it's good, and the fish dishes have good taste, it's not an spectacular restaurant but the relation between the price and food it's really good. We order 4 differents dishes and 6 beers only for 40 dolllars. You must try one fish of their grill.

I recommend this place both for the food, the service and the atmosphere. The sushi is different than regular sushi, but it is absolutely delicious. So is the fried rice. Make sure to top the meal with some heavenly tempura ice cream! This is also a place where you can enjoy a couple of drinks while listening to reggae music... More

We ate sushi there and it wasn't what you would expect for sushi, it is the mexican version of it, i would recommend you go at happy hour time where you 2x1 then it is good value for money.

Delicious, fresh, beautifully presented sushi. We arrived before 7pm and were offered a 2 for 1 deal. Relaxed ambience, good friendly service and great prices. Would highly recommend!
