The freshness, a wide variety and the taste make this restaurants a must visit when you are in Panama. The restaurant is located in the Torres Las A Erica's building.

“Fusion Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Really worth the bucks. It does get crowded, but I've been lucky enough several times to wait under 10 minutes for a table at night. I like the fresh taste on every bite. The white tuna is my favorite entree. Service can be slow at times, although good attitude from the staff.

“Good option but won't knock your socks off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Echoing other reviews, service was slow and spotty, but friendly, and overall the food is probably overrated. Conveniently located near Multi Plaza and in the large Torre de las Americas building, it probably has a big lunch crowd of business people. Bottom line is, sushi is fresh and will do if you have the craving, just don't expect what you might get in the US. I would eat there again, so don't let an average rating steer you away.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The service was not good either time we were there, and the food was just average. Great decor but very noisy due to a hall like structure that is lacking textiles.

“Must visit it if you love japanese food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you love japanese food you must come here. Better make a reservation as its gets busy. Service is good and the food is awesome. It is a more upscale place and the prices are a bit higher but its worth it!
