“Good asian fusion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We originally came to this hotel to eat at Palio and go to the casino. We were upset at first to discover Palio closed since we called the hotel to ask what dining options there were and they listed several places but failed to mention that nothing but Shimas was open. I'm half Chinese and was wary of how authentic the food would be in a hotel in Puerto Rico

Our best dish was the char siu pork tenderloin, it's something different and the coconut mashed potatoes mixed well. The dim sum trio was also pretty good, my husband had the Mongolian beef and the rest of the party ordered teriyaki with noddles which tasted acceptable but was nothing special. Desserts were very we had the coconut tart and deep fried cheesecake.

Service was friendly and attentive. It's pricey for what you get, my recommendation would be to order several appetizers which are more unique and then order one or two dishes to share.

“Great rolls, not on half price night though.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We ate there three times in our one week stay! The rolls were great and we were super excited for half price night. I think what they meant was "half price for half the food"!! The rolls were tiny compared tithe regular ones and there were only a few choices, not the whole menu. The waiter heard our complaints though and do what he could to adjust the bill.

The banana cheesecake with macadamia but ice cream was worth every penny an then some! To. Die. For.

“Large sushi rolls, but a little too much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

The sushi rolls here are enormous, but can be a little bland. The pork dumplings were terrific. Again, can feel a little pricey for the quality. But service is exceptional.

“Very Ordinary Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

You can totally skip it. The food is expensive & nothing great. We ordered drinks which were strictly alright. The appetizer portion was extremely small. The entree portion was thankfully decent. Ambience was boring.
