We waited 15 minutes for our menus. Then all of our main courses never came out at the same time and our 3rd guest never got his main course which we waited patiently for an HOUR and we had to leave.

I wouldn't consider this place "Averge" but since there is no rating for good I'll have to settle. This is by no means a traditional Japanese restaurant, but it's more of a fusion restaurant (Nobu, Japonez,Tori Tori type of place). Quality wise it is a good place but prices are expensive. Also if ordering nigiris, the fish quality is ok... More

One thing you need to know in a place like this in an upscale area (such as Santa Fe) in Mexico City . . . be prepared for a big bill, no matter what you order. Be very careful of the "specials" as they usually recommend crazy priced items. I would not categorize Jin San as a true Japanese place,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Mexico City in the Santa Fe area. It has a great variety of Asiatic food with a really nice venue and atmosphere. The terrace will be the perfect spot for a romantic dinner. The restaurant is located at Park Plaza in Santa Fe, petite mall with a couple of boutiques but great... More

This has to be the worst Japanese restaurant in the area, and the next to it. The food is mediocre, the prices are completely out of range compared to food quality. Is is a mixture of Japanese mexicanized with dishes that a Japanese person would not know what they where. Sushi was bad because the balance of rice and fish... More

The place is nice, and the service is good, but the quality and cooking of the rice is unacceptable. A shame for a Japanesse restaurant!

If you are looking for something with an Asian twist served by prompt and courteous staff in a modern atmosphere , this is a great place to impress. About the only thing holding this back from a top rating is it is a bit pricey...bit you will get a meal and evening to remember.

I do not have too much experience in this type of food (Asian), but my feeling was good. We ate good, every dish we ordered was tasty and very nice presented. The table has a small stove, so the staff can cook your order in front of you. They bring and present the raw ingredients (vegetables, meat, fish) and cook... More
