Took a date there and grabbed a table on the patio. The restaurant sent us a small appetizer on the house to start. Nice touch. We ordered several dishes including Maki, Tiparito and Piqueos. The Crocantes of Spicy Lobster were fantasic and was our favorite. The Hamachi Maki was unbelievable. The server then recommended a Tiraditio for us to try.... More

Found at last minute and was close to hotel. Mongolian beef, crispy pork and gohan rice was great. Sushi was pretty good but not as great as reviews suggested.

Salmon sashimi, spicy salmon roll and miso soup - all was great. The salmon was good quality, the preparation was very good. It's a pity the restaurant lacks a bit of more innovative ambiance. Still, a great option for sushi in Panama.

Rolls and other things very good creative; drinks very good as well. Wasabi and soy a bit on the weak side. Excellent service.

My friend and I visited this sushi hangout. This very high end and the quality of the sushi reflected that.Also the area where this place is located is very upscale. The service including drinks was par excellence. If you are look for good sushi In a wonderful area,then I definitely recommend ask Nikkei Cuisine.

This was the highest rated Japanese restaurant in Panama City, and close to my hotel. I was a little surprised when I walked in, and asked to sit at the sushi bar, to then see not a single visible person of Japanese descent anywhere in sight. I was also somewhat disappointed in the lack of variety of available fish on... More

It's high end for Panana, and it's worth it. I was in Panama city for 3 nights and I went twice to eat the same thing. The sashimi (mixed: tuna, maguro, salmon & octopus) was very fresh and melted in your mouth. I ate the nigiri called unagi kabayaki (eel) - it was great. I'm still salivating thinking about this...
