You have to appreciate a restaurant where the reputation, service, and quality match the hype. Said to be Panama’s first Sushi restaurant, seldom have I had a Japanese meal that tastes as fresh, and as flavorful as this one. Accompanied by a wonderful Nigori Sake,...More

Ordered the Ahi Tuna for $15. Extremely disappointed with the whole 1 oz of tuna that was served. In the picture is 4 bite size pieces. That is sad. The big red flower is a tomato. The taste was edible, but $15 is a lot...More

We were walking by from the nearby hotel and wandered in. We were warmly welcomed and had the Hibachi chef all to ourselves as it was just post lunch. We thought that they were closed, or should have been to prepare for the dinner crowd....More

Not a bad sushi place - I've had better, but I've also had a lot worse. I had the katsu curry and we shared some sushi rolls. Prices were very high and service was slow and unenthusiastic. There was a table nearby playing videos loudly...More

Well established Japanese Sushi restaurant. The ambience could be better, but the food is great! Standard sushi fare with some rolls that add a Panamanian twist. Located in a pretty busy area with several other restaurants.

We stayed at the next door hotel and go to this amazing place to lunch. The food was delicious and the prices are reasonable. If you like the oriental food you have to try this one.

So I've tried several sushi restaurants in Panama and have yet to be blown away or even leave extremely satisfied. So while I'd rate this place a 4 star, that's only because they're of the better places here in Panama. Prices are cheaper than some...More

If we talk Japanese cuisine in Panama, this is a well-known one, luckily survived… Ambiance, classic, same old house (this kind of houses are disappearing) This was a favorite place of Japanese executives decades ago (don’t know now) We shared a Teppanyaki ($19.00) very soft...More
