“Great Ambiance, Good Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

After reading and hearing mixed reviews on other sushi places around Amman, and discovering that Yoshi was booked, my coworker and I decided to try Esaki out...and we are glad we did. The restaurant itself, the layout, decor, lighting, etc., is superb. The service was prompt, courteous, and professional, and the food was very good (especially the crab-mango salad). Esaki also had the best drinks we had while in town. Two thumbs up all around!

“Good for Amman”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

So I just can't get excited about sushi in Amman. I've tried 3-4 spots and they all fail to impress. Makes sense...but it doesn't dissuade people here from gushing about their great sushi joints (ah, if only they tried sushi in Tokyo, Los Angeles, or New York). I guess ignorance is bliss. Enjoy, Amman!

At any rate, Esaki was the best of the bunch but is pretty pricey and really is most well suited for a romantic dinner. Personally, I wouldn't return with family or friends. Its a really elegant and subdued atmosphere.

Doubt I'll ever be back.

“Very Unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

What I like about Esaki is that it is very different than the rest in Amman. The place offers a Japanese menue with Sushi and Tapinyaki dishes. But in addition, has veru unique items like the Crab Mango Salad and the Tuna Tartar. The decor and atmosphere is by far among the best in Amman. Although the place is nto that big, it is a place to see and be seen. A bit hard on the wallet, but its worth it
