I went here for dinner and had a very good time. Great Japanese fusion food, loved the location and cool ambience of the restaurant, good service. We ordered sushi rolls, cones and nigiris, everything was great!

Superb fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine resulting in creative, fresh and delicious sushi and rolls. Ambiance is upscale but not pretentious. Order any fusion or classic rolls and sashimi was equally high quality with salmon toro-like the best. Cocktails were good but not great. This place is great and reservations strongly suggested.

I had an Eudon noodle dish and it almost the same as Mac and Cheese. The seaweed salad had about 1/4 cup of seaweed on top of a regular salad. The strips of rare beef steak on top of the Mac And Cheese were tasty, but the remainder was terrible and not expected. The Tuesday lunch crowd was huge and.beyond... More

Service is good and location is easily accessible. You can have appetizer drinks, which are Japanese, e.g. hot saki (rice wine), American style cocktails, Peruvian drinks, and good variety of wines. The menu has truly Japanese food, but also Peruvian, and North American. All of it is well prepared, waiters assist in explaining the menu. Overall it is a good... More

Nice restaurant, Good service, the food looks great but sadly, is of mediocre quality. Seaweed salade, ginger, salmon, rolls, (tempura) ice cream are not made of, or with top quality ingredients. So for sushi lovers it will be dissapointing.

Sushi bars in Panama are not what you would expect for a country that can do backflips to express the volume and variety of fish here. The local sushi bars are not using the local snapper, grouper, mackerel, amberjack, pompano, and much more. They do have imported salmon which was actually the best quality I've had in Panama.

The restaurant was clean but the sushi selection was just mediocre but I do not think this is the town for sushi. The edamame was without salt so I don't think they understand Japanese cuisine very well.
