“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The food was fanstatic! Didn't expect to find a great Sushi place in Costa Rica :) Food is on the higher end of cost but we expected this.

“Awesome Sushi....”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

In the least expected of places. My girlfriend and I are from Miami and the sushi here beats anything over what we've had in Miami.

An Israeli owner and a Costa Rican chef. Who would have thought.

We highly recommmmmmmmmend.

“A little pricey, but so good.”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is the first sushi place I've been to where I liked every single roll. Maybe I was just hungry after a day on the beach, but the sushi was delicious and the service was very good.

“The fresh sushi you expect, with a local twist!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

This sushi was so fresh! Mmm... delicious. They menu was very extensive (150+ items!) and we sampled quite a bit of it - surprisingly nothing we asked for was unavailable. My favourite were the Costa Rican rolls which had spicy beef and fried plantain, as well as the Mal Pais and Sanata Teresa Rolls. We also had some desert rolls made of rice, banana and chocolate... so good. Service was great and the owner sent us some complimentary sake.

We almost didn't try this place because we thought "we can get sushi at home" but there are definitely some unique items with a local flair so don't pass this up!
