“Best sushi in la fortuna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

If you are from a "sushi" town, going to a sushi restaurant in the mountains is probably not the best choice. That said, this place definitely had good food. I would not order the sashimi, but the rolls were delicious, and the service fantastic. Also the view of the volcano from the outdoor tables was great.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Small place on a side street, somewhat hard to find. Very, very slow service on a weekday although we were the only customers. Limited choice of rolls -- those we tried were good, not great. Choice between the small, nondescript room and a table on the sidewalk where the smell of a nearby fuel tank was difficult to ignore. Not our most fortunate choice in La Fortuna.

I want to thank the great opportunity you gave us to serve you. If your food slow to get to your table you usually ask my sincere apologies if more than 4 rolls takes 20 or 30 minutes. Possibly it was due during the weekend we moved to this new place, but I repeat my apology is not common to happen.
Regarding gasoline smell might have a car parked nearby, but in any case we have other tables where you could change and feel comfortable. For the rest we try to offer the best quality at the best price fusion sushi.

“Great sushi! Try the ponzu roll.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Great food and friendly service. It's not the cheapest but the quality is definitely there. Try it out! The ponzu roll is delicious, as are the other rolls (dynamite, salmon, etc.)

“Great Sushi, Service and Low Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great quality, very tasty sushi and a wide variety of choices. Prices range from various at $8 to a few at $10, $12 and $15 for extreme, varied rolls. I especially recommend the PONZU and the Rainbow. They made a Non-Rice Hand Roll for my girlfriend that doesn't eat rice. This type of specialized service is a premier example of the level of service and help that they give to each guest. They greet you with a smile and are especially courteous upon answering any questions and giving any recommendations. If you arrive in La Fortuna and appreciate great Japanese Sushi this is the best place, don't leave without trying it. They're open late, until 10pm. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
