Located in Araiza hotel. The rolls are very creative and well priced. I tried a few dishes during a five day stay, including the tomahawk ribeye, ceviche peruano, coconut shrimp. All were very good and well presented. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Mexicali.

This has been the finest sushi restaraunt in Mexicali for some time. But recently they relocated to Hotel Araiza (one of the poshest hotels in town). The super classy setting, the five star service, and top of the list THE FOOD. Every bite is a treasure. This is a must do in Mexical

Small but very nice place to eat Japanese food with a beer. Came here with some friends from work during a business trip, has different plates and they were all very good so I can say I would come back. Courteous service, not too expensive, close to everything. I hope you find this review helpful and that you enjoy this... More

This restaurant is at the same location as Araiza Hotel. The kitchen is Japanese fused with the Mexican. You should try tuna fish in tostadas, just delicious.

The food is fresh and tasty, the restaurant may not be easy to find for foreigners but it´s worth it. Great customer service and the place is nice and comfortable. :)
