“average sushi but friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

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.

“Fantastic sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

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!

“Good sushi, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This place has reliable sushi, especially for Mexico. We've eaten here a couple of times, and it's always a nice atmosphere.

“Worst Sushi and Meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Nice friendly people, that's the only nice thing I can say. The Miso soup was hot water, a few mushrooms and some undercooked rice noodles. The soy sauce is watered down. The salmon and other sushi was edible, but was very flavorless. The rolls we got were poorly wrapped and so fell apart upon attempting to eat. The host was friendly but it really was to get us to book a trip to see the Whale sharks.
