They installed a couple of TVs that are always with high volume, the same with the music so loud that all the people shout. It use to be an excellent destination for business meetings and a nutritious and healthy lunch with excellent prices, now... More

Best sushi in Costa Rica, the large 92 piece boat offers huge variety. Fish is very fresh and rolls are delicious. Wait staff is very professional and service is great.

Arrived s bit late, but was greeted with a smile (they close at 3 pm) waiters were super nice and food excellent, the only detail was that they gave us a regular spoon instead of the traditional for the miso soup, has the sashimi combination, all fish fresh and delicious, tempura shrimp, exquisite, very happy indeed.

I love sushi, so I've tried many places around the area and this is the best. The decoration is beautiful and the service wonderful. My family and I usually come every 15 days just to relax and eat.

Ticos are friendly, casual and love to enjoy life... "Pura Vida" is their motto and this Japanese place is just like that. Service could be faster, but is attentive and always come with a smile. Try the hamachi, the unagi and the white tuna. Must: The spider roll.

The sushi here was fantastic. My favorite dish was the salad that included seared tuna, avocado and seaweed. The staff are fantastic. I arrived on my first day and went in to grab lunch. I went back again during my trip, and the waiter remember me by name. Great service and I highly recommend.
