Review of Sushiitto

Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 October 2016

Overall
All of the sushi spots in Panama do things to be "unique" and Sushi Itto is no different, but the choices they offer were just not very attractive. Took me a while to order, although their menu is very well laid out and easy to read.

It's not that I'm a plane Jane. I enjoy a varied palate: I love the blend of sweet and salty in Thai food, if Indian food didn't burn my stomach I would have more, I like smelly cheeses lol... but most of the sushi spots I've been to in Panama have the same combinations: a bit of caribbean-sushi, lots of "cheese" (they don't specify if it's Philly or cheeses like mozzarella which is becoming popular nowadays, despite how revolting that sounds) and forget fresh salmon, it's always smoked salmon. Sushi Itto... is the same.

DISCOUNTS
I went for their 2 for 1 Rolls special (M-W) which is a great deal in Panama! I would def recommend you go for that. However, like I said, the choices weren't so great.

RECOMMEND
I stuck with the Spicy Tuna (which wasn't spicy) and the La Pinta, a breaded & friend roll with shrimp and avocado.

They were both tasty!

That's why I can give a 4 instead of a 3.

SERVICE
The staff was attentive and accommodating, but I did go on a night where the city had almost come to a stop from heavy rains, so there were few people in the restaurant.

AMBIANCE
I like that it doesn't feel like one big cafeteria. I had entered and eaten there a long time ago, and hadn't noticed that the branch in Obarrio has a welcoming back patio! In the heart of the hotel and banking district, this patio is a big plus - would calm anyone down!

Located in strategic places, quick service and reasonably priced. The quality is not great but a good option when you are walking around in the mall.

If you are just looking for a quick bite while sitting down in a nicer and less congested area of the mall, this place is ok. The food is ok, but nothing out of the ordinary.
