In my opinion this is one of the two best sushis on the island, but it comes with a hefty price tag. The sushi is at the level of high art. Its the closest real restaurant ship-side at the West Indian Company Dock. Service can be very good, but there is one server who can be a bit surly. You... More

This is not my favorite sushi place on St. Thomas but what I do love it for are the mussels. Get a plate of them, they are so delicious. They are sautéed or steamed in some kind of sweet miso sauce and they double them up per shell. Sushi while served in very large portions ( it's like you need... More

We enjoyed our first try at Beni's. The food was good and portions generous. If you eat mussells try theirs.

We fancied a bit of a/c and have tried every other sushi joint so came here on that basis. Place was clean and the servers were friendly. We ordered two of the specials rolls which were both great then saw someone have mussels so ordered those as well. The mussels were probably the highlight. A bit on the pricey side... More

I saw a hand roll from this place online and had to go! While I didn't get a large hand roll, the sushi there was great!! Very large but not many options. It was also loaded with siracha which was unfortunate because we both hate siracha. It also wasn't a busy night so we got our sushi fast, but our... More

My boyfriend and I came here for sushi and we're a little turned off by the prices of the rolls we saw. (21$) We asked the waiter how big they were and he said they were huge! We ended up ordering one and it was definitely a lot bigger than a normal roll. It was good but wouldn't get it... More

They pretty much serve it all. Was rather quite the day we were in there for there were no cruise boats in port. Got a really cool floating boat serving bar. It's sushi. What else do you wanna know. Waitress was very helpful in picking out some different types of sushi we had never tried before. On and this place... More

You have to get a plate of mussels, they are fantastic. Sushi is always fresh and good too. We will be back on our next trip

A few of the crew on my cruise recommended Beni Iguana. I was skeptical, but thankfully I trusted them. The stroll through Havensight Mall to reach the restaurant did nothing to encourage me nor did the initial impression of the inside.I had been urged to try the Mussels. They seemed expensive to order, but they were enormous with a wonderful... More

What separates Beni Iguana’s most from other sushi bars, besides our great sushi and large fish portions, are our mussels. In fact, we guarantee you will love our mussels just as much as you will love our famous Iguana Sauce. Our Iguana Sauce was originally designed for our veggie rolls and salads, but our patrons started using it for everything else on our menu. In fact, this much sought-after condiment is quickly becoming expected by our regulars. Come in to try our savory dishes that everyone enjoys so much.
