This authentic Japanese Restaurant has excellent service and a tranquil atmosphere. The food is always fresh and delivered with the utmost service. I've eaten here dozens of times over the years when I visit Costa Rica (from Colorado/California), and it's my go to place near Santa Ana/Belen.

It's priced moderately, as you do pay for great food and service, but you'll enjoy every bite and every moment.

¡Buen provecho!

Service was pretty good, but food was just so so for Japanese food. I ordered the tempura and it was a heavy egg batter not light and crisp like I prefer.

We had two great meals here and were really delighted both times with the quality of the food! The restaurant wasn't very crowded so our service was prompt and the "hibachi" chef was masterful. Given US prices, I felt the meal was reasonable in cost.

I enjoyed "the boat" the prepare with different types of sushi, shashimi, etc. The wine options are very limited and sometimes they do not have the best ones. The restaurant is a bit pricey.

Never have been disappointed with their food. If you have more than 2 guests order a boat with sushi.

Just commenting because there is not much choice here and they always have been good.
