Really gross Mexican roll, deep fried with lots of batter, not cooked entirely. The server asked how it was and I told him. The busboy then came over and asked if we wanted to take it home. I said no. They charged us for the replacement shrimp tempura roll and also add gratuity to the check automatically. Just a few... More

I've been going to this sushi restaurant for years. Sadly it is in a steady decline. I went today and the service was awful. All the staff were just not trained and a lot of confusion. There were no ships in port today so they cut back on staff. Yet it was still busy. The food sadly under par. Just... More

I made the mistake to go along at this restaurant. Big mistake. the sushi and all the rest were fine but I could not enjoy the variety because they did not offer such a plate. I would really like to have an assortment of various sushi but instead I ended with a huge portion of one type. Anyway, even that... More

Best sushi I had in a long time. It's expensive, but no worse than any other nice place in St. Thomas. Reasonable prices on their drinks. Service was excellent.

Never going back! There are other excellent sushi restaurants in St. Thomas that would give me a glass of tap water!! Are... More

In my opinion this is one of the two best sushis on the island, but it comes with a hefty price tag. The sushi is at the level of high art. Its the closest real restaurant ship-side at the West Indian Company Dock. Service can be very good, but there is one server who can be a bit surly. You... More

This is not my favorite sushi place on St. Thomas but what I do love it for are the mussels. Get a plate of them, they are so delicious. They are sautéed or steamed in some kind of sweet miso sauce and they double them up per shell. Sushi while served in very large portions ( it's like you need... More

We fancied a bit of a/c and have tried every other sushi joint so came here on that basis. Place was clean and the servers were friendly. We ordered two of the specials rolls which were both great then saw someone have mussels so ordered those as well. The mussels were probably the highlight. A bit on the pricey side... More

Description
What separates Beni Iguana’s most from other sushi bars, besides our great sushi and large fish portions, are our mussels. In fact, we guarantee you will love our mussels just as much as you will love our famous Iguana Sauce. Our Iguana Sauce was originally designed for our veggie rolls and salads, but our patrons started using it for everything else on our menu. In fact, this much sought-after condiment is quickly becoming expected by our regulars. Come in to try our savory dishes that everyone enjoys so much.
