This is not the place you want to eat when in Puerto Rico unless you are craving sushi and seaweed. It's a small quaint place. I am glad they had a good beer and saki selection. I prefer more of an Island cuisine when visiting...More

The sushi was VERY fresh (as per my daughter) and the menu extensive. It was a typical hibachi place but the food was delicious and the service was very good.
