“Great little spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

My sister and I took a nice stroll here at sunset from Playa Flamingo (only about a 10 minute walk) and really enjoyed the friendly service and delicious sushi! They were more than happy to make a custom roll for us since we were vegetarian and even though we just ordered avocado and cucumber, they really worked to make the presentation beautiful and added a little bit of gomae to our plate. They fancied up a roll that is usually really basic back home and I really appreciated their dedication to great presentation and taste. : ) The service was really friendly. I'll definitely be back. Great for a casual bite.

“Sensational place for luch or an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I stopped for lunch today and ordered the 'Skinny Sushi Roll'. It must have been names that because its healthy or something. This roll was packed with so much filling that it almost didn't close. It was drizzled with a sweet soy reduction and served with wasabi and pickled ginger garnish. It was fabulous and extremely filling. It was priced at only 6000€. A deal as far as I am concerned. As I was sitting back, the owner decided to treat the customers in the restaurant with a free sample of sangria. I ended up drinking two pitchers it was so good.

“Below average sushi”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

We came here based on the good reviews and were very disappointed. I did not care so much about been the only ones at the restaurant, but the food was really below average. In addition, they were nt able to do the fruit shakes in the menu, because there was no ice , there were no sodas, and the only shrimp available was tempura.

“Good food no people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

A few weeks into our Costa Rica trip I got sushi-cravings. We went to this place, the food was really good, the only minus was that we were the only customers that night (I know not the restaurant fault). It's well worth it's money, and you get generous portions for the price paid.
