Had appetizers and drinks. Drinks were fair priced. Food was good but portions are a bit small. Cutest bar cat ever!

A friend told me about this place that served sushi in Leon, so I had to try it...and I'm glad I did. Again, for sushi in Nicaragua, not bad and not bad prices if you've got a craving. I was there before the hipster nightclub crowd arrived, but I could see how it would be a fun place at night... More

To find positives, the service was fine as is the room. The good comment well is now dry. We have eaten sushi all over the world. Not meant to brag here, but simply to state that this is absolutely, hands down, the worst crap that pretends to be sushi we have ever had. In most of my posts, I try... More

We dont event complain about the very high prices. Thats normal when eating sushi. But the portions were poor, the fish was old and the rice at least one day old too. The waiter was bored from our presence and we couldnt wait to leave the place. Worst sushi ever.

We went here craving some sushi. It's a nice looking place, with nice furniture and ambient light. The prices are high, but that's common when ordering sushi. The waiter got atleast one of the orders won't and failed to solve the problem. Apart from that the rice was very dry and the fish was not the freshest. We also ordered... More

I love the sushi at Manhattan!!!! Its a stylish restaurant with funky ambiance and great staff. I highly recommend it and would eat here often, my favourite are the salmon, cream cheese and cucumber rolls but there are so many more to choose from.

We really enjoyed 'El Completo', a platter selection of Manhattan's sushi, sashimi and tempura along with their cocktails on our visit to Leon. Really liked the juxtaposition of the traditional sitting/dining room decor with the funky bar.

This place is unique in Leon. The items that are made from fresh fish are excellent. Also recommendable are the chicken skewers.

I'll be honest and say I entered with low expectations. The other Asian food we've had in central America was average at best, but I'm not one to be deterred. So it was so nice to find this place! Tempura was perfect both in the batter consistency and how it was cooked. As good as I've had in Japan. The... More

We are located in the living city of Leon facing La Perla Hotel. We offer sushi tapas and kickass cocktails in a very different atmosphere, we play all sort of music but NO reggaetone...sorry. Our Chefs always propose you the freshest fish and the tastiest recipes. If you're up for a drink or more or want to dine with friend in a classy relax atmosphere Manhattan is the place !open from 5.30pm closed on sundays and mondays
