Having dinner here was a great choice, as a sushi lover, i can say this was the best sushi i tried in Tulum. The place is small and a little bit noisy but even the service was great.
I´ll be back!

I really enjoyed chatting with my server who was super nice and kept trying to invite my sister and I to an afterparty. This wasn't that kind of trip so we didn't end up going. Their take on sushi was okay, the presentation of the lobster sushi roll was quite impressive. We also had the tuna tataki which was decent.

Having tired of Mexican food, we decided to give Nao a try for some sushi. We were pretty pleased with the results in terms of quality and execution, and our server was terrific. Nice to have AC in the restaurant too! Have to say that the flavors are more traditional Japanese, compared with a more local flare (incorporating more local fish and fruits) than we found in Baja on a previous trip. We left happy but not wowed.

We were wondering around Tulum to find something to eat and then we noticed this place, maybe sushi is not the first thing you think of in Mexico but after a few weeks traveling and eating Mexican food it was time for something else so we just walked in and gave it a shot; wauw, definitely one of the best sushi we ever had (and we had some good sushi around the world)! Great quality of the rice, fish and sauce and all in the right proportion. The waiter was super friendly and there were some nice deals that day. If you don't go, you'll regret it later.
