Super Good! Waterfront setting but a bit hard to find, but totally worth the search. Very nice waitresses and excellent dinner and dessert. Highly recommended!

I have been traveling back and forth from St. Thomas for business for over two years now, and Enkai Sushi has always been my favorite spot. They have everything from fresh, traditional rolls to crazy, innovative rolls with stuff like tempura bacon and duck confit! The girl in charge there, I think her name is Katie, is a freakin foodie... More

I came here with a group of family and friends last summer for a sushi feast, and we all really enjoyed our food. The sushi is good enough, although they are way too fond of sprinkling those little fried onion crunches all over everything! What's up with that?Nevertheless, it was a good meal! One thing we didn't care for is... More

Hello! Thank you for your review for our restaurant from a year ago. You must have an awesome memory! For the past two years we have been in transition since the previous owner just left the island one day, literally, and never came back. I made a choice to take over the business, so no one would lose their jobs.... More

This place is a diamond in the rough! Deliciously fresh sushi that rivals anything on the mainland. I have a gluten sensitivity and they checked ingredients and prepared items to be gluten free by making small modifications. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Relaxed atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!

During our recent one week stay on the island, we visited Enkai twice. Found the food to be delicious, well prepared and creatively plated. The first visit was quiet so the service was attentive and almost too quick. During the second visit, we had to wait at the bar until the server could accommodate us (empty table, but as she...

Live in St Thomas for 8 years and this was my favorite sushi place for years. Went about 6 months ago and was not the same. Yesterday took my visiting family there and hands down the worst I had ever !! To start the special drinks was horrible. The soup uneatable und the spice tuna roll old. The top was... More

Hello, thank you for your review and we are sorry to hear your experience wasn't the best however, you violated TripAdvisor guidelines by posting two reviews from the same party. I also feel your comments were a bit extreme as at least 4 of our servers have food sensitivities and none of them have ever gotten sick from our food... More

I have to say I think Enkai is my favorite sushi spot on island right now...whenever we come here, the fish is always fresh, the rolls are awesome, the service is super, and its all-around a great time! Enkai has definitely deserved this 5 star review! They are tucked away in a little corner of Frenchtown across the way from... More

I must say it was very average . The Kimchee roll was made with regular cabbage vs Korean cabbage. And the California roll was made with artificial crab meat! The service was great but unfortunately that doesn't change the food.
