Bonsai is definitely the best sushi place in the area, and the only one in urban Mayagüez. Great selection and friendly staff. Plan ahead and call for reservations from Thursday to Saturday.

One of the best sushis on the western side of PR. Fancy and cozy place in the middle of Mayaguez old town. Creative and exquisite cuisine that mixes some of the best Japanese and Puerto Rican ingredients for a great experience.

A gem in downtown Mayagüez, you'll never expect to find sushi this good in this University town. The owner is always around catering to your every wimp. The place is very cool and has a tepanyaki table, the only one in western Puerto Rico. Worth a try!!
