Best Japanese restaurant in Cancun. The only others who come even close are Hanaichi and Samura. Fabulous fresh sashimi (try the hamachi) and outstanding tepanyaki. Wonderful service from Roman and a lady whose name I cannot remember. Beautiful decoration and the terrace overlooking the beach is amazing.
