Great sushi restaurant in Isla Verde. We enjoyed the sushi so much that my boyfriend and I stopped by twice during our vacation. The restaurant gives a complimentary appetizer and it's delicious. Will visit again when we return to PR.

For entrees we ordered the "Volcano" sushi and the "Shrimp Tempura C.C" sushi with our favorite hot sauce "Sriracha". For dessert "Tempura Cheesecake with Ice Cream". It... More

Had the ponzu tuna salad which is amazing! It has avocados and peppered rare tuna with ponzu sauce; simply amazing. Try the yellow sun roll and the angry dragon roll... Both are great!
