We had a great dinner at Enkai. We had 6 different roles which our waitress recommended and we loved each and every one. Don't like one of the ingredients? No problem- they will customize anything. There are tarpon schooling by the dock and if you're lucky they will give you scraps to feed them.

Rolls, rolls, rolls!! If you love sushi rolls, this is the place for you. Enkai's creative rolls are hands down the best I've eaten. The place sits right on the harbor in Frenchtown downtown St. Thomas. The view is stunning and you can see the big tarpon in the water (they feed them with the fish scraps from the restaurant)....

Fabulous sushi. We had a table of 4. Average service. Atmosphere dilapidated pier. Best sushi my fiance has ever had. Had the storm role and long dong.

The approach to Enkai is not that promising. But once you get to the bar and restaurant it has a great vibe. The fish is incredibly fresh and grab a drink by the dock and member you'll get to see them feed the local tarpon scraps from the sushi bar.

All 4 of us loved our experience at Enkai- including my husband who beforehand claimed he didn't like sushi. The selection of rolls was outstanding and included one that had a tropical twist. The spicy edamame was a twist on a favorite appetizer. The restaurant is on the water and after dinner we were given rubber gloves and a pan... More

We got there at about 2PM. We sat at the bar to have a good view of the bay with Marlena, our bartender/waitress, who was just a doll and made our late lunch a lot of fun. We tried to remember the sushi rolls we had, but the drinks were so good....and effective. So we got her 3 favorite rolls... More

This place is off the beaten path bit worth it! My first attempt at trying out their sushi I had to bail due to the crappy parking but went and ran some errand and came back around 3. I am glad I gave the parking a second attempt! Although they are not your typical sushi place then menu was cool... More
