This "restaurant" is located on the rooftop overlooking the ocean, so it is a great place for a drink or hanging out. The service we received was excellent both times we were there. The food was okay... it is sushi made by Mexican catering to American, so don't expect anything authentic. The seating is a bit funky. There isn't really... More

Dishes well presented. Portions according to expected. Wide selection in menu options for sushi and rices selection. We had some comments about noisy music and manager immediately took action. All personnel with excellent attitude and almost a smile in their expression.

I absolutely love Jesus(or Chuy) the waiter. He is why the rating is very good and not average. He is personable and friendly and is very relaxed which is contagious. I enjoy the cold sake here and any sashimi. As for the rolls. Don't bother, it is a bunch of rice and cucumber and barely any fish or avocado or... More

Huge rolls with a regional twist on thing we eat at home plus a few items I've never seen before. I had some very tender octopus and everything was very fresh tasting. The staff was very friendly and their service was quick. One of our servers didn't speak great english but his english was much better than my spanish! The... More

The food was exceptional but a warning, when they say a certain roll is spicy, it is! Not too spicy for me though. Very inventive rolls, very good service. So if you want to step away from the usual fare here, or you are just craving sushi go here. PS I had the tuna takati sashimi...fabulous!

Second visit and am happy to say they did not disappoint! Great food, with a local twist. Sushi in Mexico. Flavours and presentation are excellent. The chef has passion for his work and we benefit. Great experience and a reasonable bill. If you like Japanese food don't miss this hidden gem!

Fantastic food. Great wait staff. Excellent location and decor. The miso soup and sashimi were VERY tasty and the sushi rolls are huge!!! Go on Tuesdays when the rolls are 3 for the price of 2!

We have been here before and the place keeps getting better. They have a few oddball types of rolls (bacon being one of them) that we tried this time and it was delicious. Their regular seafood rolls and nigiri are just as good as they have always been. The portions seem to get bigger each time we go. Prices are... More

Would recommend this place to anyone wanting sushi. The staff is very pleasant accommodating and most helpful understanding the different dishes.
