“Worst dining experience of my adult life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Pass this place. Just walk on by! You will wait over 2 hours for mushy sushi that is only a level above gas station sushi. The service was horrible, and when I inquired about the food and timey manner of the service, I wasn't able to speak with the manager because she didn't speak English.
They then canceled our entire table's order while we still waited.

“Basically OK; not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Decent food but pricey for what you get. Inconsistent service. This was in the afternoon, so maybe it's an evening kind of place. We were the only people there, but we did want a late lunch and if you're going to be open you ought to have service.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Ate here for lunch on the patio of Rif Fort. Location was great but the good was just average, kind of bland. While it was good, there are just better restaurants nearby.

“Good quality sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

Since recently this is my restaurant of choice in Curacao when I want to eat sushi and sashimi. I think the quality of the food is probably the best on the island at this moment. Considering this is Curacao, the service of the staff is not bad. Big recommendation from my side.
