I was drawn to this place for the great reviews but war completely disappointed. I order a Shrimp and Vegetables Tempura with a Miso Soup which was very watery. The food was only OK but I really did expected more. It was too price for what I got.

This is the best sushi place in El Salvador. This is not the typical commercial sushi place. Here they serve real japanese sushi, sashimi, etc.

I've been here just one, unfortunately!! My ex boyfriend took me there once, but since its location makes it hard to find, I haven't been able to come back. Little expensive yes, but OMG they have this soy thing that tastes delicious. I'm actually looking forward to come back... eventually.

The menu is very extensive, yet pretty much everything is high quality food. This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in San Salvador, and it has a very authentic atmosphere

I'm a sushi lover and because of my work I have to travel a lot to many countries, and believe, the best sushi ever is in El Salvador! (By the... More
