    We were recommended this restaurant by several locals and were excited to try it. It was beautiful and the staff was lovely. However, our waitperson did not speak english and we were unable to understand the menu well enough to order appropriately. We tried google translate but some of the words did not translate. We finally ordered "safely" and it was good, but not up to the standard we were expecting from a top restaurant with this amazing reputation. While I can speak a littlespanish, it was not enough and communication was very difficult. I would not return unless I would be able to truly understand the menu and the specialties of the house. However, we did just take a chance on a dessert and we lucked out. It was a great choice!

    What a wonderful dining experience. The food was outstanding. So fresh and creatively presented. We loved the Kobe carpaccio, yaki noodles, and had a variety of sashimi. The fusion with panamanian ingredients was amazing.

    Music at an uncomfortable volume to be able to have a business dinner; offer a dessert that you expect to eat and they offer you something completely different, they should change the name of the dessert!

    That was our first time, and we had a rooftop view. We came on Valentine’s Day and everything was absolutely spectacular. The music was great. The crab salad was phenomenal. We had to order another one! Of course the sushi was amazing, but our most favorite item had to be the Beef Gyoza. Superb!

    Overall the food and service were great. I appreciated the servers coming to clear off some things on the table, but they came so often that I felt like they were rushing us. In some instances they started removing without asking first. I would still give them another chance though.

    Great location in high rise building in financial district. Hard for taxi to find. First class ambience and service. I had a red snapper roll, smoked octopus and palmito salad. The salad was outstanding. The octopus was good but no octopus taste.. a touch of smoke and heavy marinade which I liked. The snapper was individual rolled sashimi stuffed with crispy stuff. Good but I should stick to sashimi. Next time I will get their sashimi plate. Their version of old fashion was a bit too sweet for yankee tastes. I really liked the hot sake presentation. In general, when going to a Japanese restaurant in Central America remember they will put a local “flavor” to all rolls etc.
