“Great atmosphere and views but only average Sushi”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place was way off the beaten path. We are lucky we took a taxi tha knew where to go. The view of the bay and it being right on the water was a plus. Service was very friendly and good overall.

The sushi was presented well and fresh but overall the taste was just average. Most rolls tasted the same. Rice was too big.

“Hard to find but worth it”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

As with pretty much anything in St Thomas, Enkai is a pain to find. Down a one way, through a parking lot, and wait, is that another parking lot? Totally worth the hunt. I've eaten sushi in a lot of major cities and Hawaii, and Enkai is right up there with them. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful in providing suggestions. Some of the sushi has a Caribbean twist to it, so such info in invaluable.

The ambiance was quite nice; it's right on the water, and if you sit along the outside, you can watch 5 foot tarpon hanging around for a handout. The atmosphere was really calm, and as I can't stand loud restaurants, it was perfect for me. The servers were right on it; there when you needed them, but not overly obtrusive. We had spicy edaname (it is indeed spicy, sorry I can't spell it correctly), and a couple rolls. All were artfully prepared, and very tasty. We also had an order of tempura dim sum, which was different, and again quite tasty.
Should I make it back t St Thomas, I will definitely be finding my way to that parking lot again.
