We're from Seattle, and love to eat sushi. Consistently have it on a weekly basis. We had a hankering for sushi after being on this island for two weeks, so we needed to get our Sushi fix. It was recommended that we go to Buddha...More

The atmosphere was very relaxed, which was probably the most enjoyable part. The service was average, the server seemed unfamiliar with the menu. She also lacked knowledge of the different types of fish, fortunately half of our party is familiar with sushi. The restaurant was...More

Stopped by for a snack. The place looks a little ramshackle, but the interior is fine. It's right off the main road. We had a few rolls. They were excellent. Service was quick; however, we were the only one in there at 4:30.

We enjoyed Buddha Sushi, service was good and food was excellent! Bartender was helping as wait staff was short and did an excellent job.

Aside from the inside not matching the outside nice décor. Inside has be renovated but the place really lacks a skilled sushi chef. Service is very slow and seating uncomfortable.

Thanks for visiting & leaving a review. I'm not sure what you ordered or how you judge the level of sushi skills but our menu has a vast variety to choose from. Maybe we can suggest something that can suit your palate.

Buddha Sushi is located on the East End of St. Thomas and features the best sushi on the island. The ladies here at the laboratory are very fond of it and we've been there for take-out or parties. It features a very unique and creative sushi menu. The happy hour is the best time to go, from 5 - 7 pm.
