“Very good Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Nice place to have Japanese in Old SJ. Dishes were nicely presented and tasted very good. Service was just ok, I'll give another try.

“Quality Asian food in Old San Juan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This well appointed place sitting in one of Old San Juan's main streets has it all: Sushi, Teppan Yaki, and a general menu of standard Chinese fare.
As a result, everything is very good but since they overreach nothing is truly excellent.
Definitely recommend it for a relaxing sit down meal in touristy Old San Juan as a departure from the norm.

“J-taste Asian cuisine,, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Delightfully clean, inviting Japanese restaurant. Wife had tempura vegetables and salmon teriyaki and I had 2 piece sampler menu, soup, steak and shrimp with chefs salad and fried rice. Ice cream and coffee for a really good price.
Would recommend if visiting Old San Juan

Excellant service, great price for lots of food. I had a seafood sampler, my wife ordered soba noodles. Both dishes were great.

“Our Fav Restaurant During Our Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My husband and I love sushi and this restaurant definitely lived up to the positive reviews. We had two items off the lunch special menu (I believe mine was called the chicken bento box) and bottled water and we left with the bill slightly under $50, including tip. The service was wonderful, the food was phenominal and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Highly recommended in the OSJ area.
