Some of the best Sushi you can will eat. Good portion size, fast WIFI and great drinks. Cool venue to take friends and enjoy a good meal. Just keep an eye on what you order as it can add up! $

My wife and I love sushi and this place is probably one of the best in our opinion. Prices are a bit steep but the food is worth it. Parking can be a bit tough especially in busy day. Service was adequate.

If your in Old San Juan and you like Sushi, this is where you need to go. The prices are reasonable and the sushi is delicious! If your not a sushi person, but like Teppanyaki,they have that as well. The service was exceptional.
