Sushi
Taikun fuses the finest grade of sushi with authentic ingredients, sophisticated presentation and legendary Ritz-Carlton service. From traditional makis to the freshest sashimi to savory tempura rolls, Taikun delivers an experience worthy of its name, an ancient Japanese term of respect from which the English ‘tycoon’ was derived. One of the hallmarks of the Taikun experience is real wasabi grated tableside. The Taikun staff grates the rhizome against sharkskin in the traditional Asian fashion, ensuring the delicate wasabi root touches only organic materials.
•Grand Cayman's finest gourmet sushi lounge and largest sake selection
•Traditional makis, mouthwatering sashimi and the signature Tempura Roll
•Omakase menu
•Communal Table dining
•Japanese green teas and distinctive martinis

We had the Sensei set menu and it was absolutely perfect. Quite a lot of food for two people but if you want to indulge it is very worth it. Great service and atmosphere.

Not sure when ordering a signature menu, why sashimi, sushi and maki was included. i was expecting more of a true Japanese experience.
Too many people asking if everything was ok

Absolutely exceptional service and paid attention to our dietary requirements/allergies very well! As it was two birthdays being celebrated that night, the hostess and Ms. Ivory (our waitress) was very thoughtful to making it special!

Dinner and drinks were all of good quality. The variety of sushi and sashimi were limited though. I am not sure why more fresh seafood is not an option for sashimi. The saki recommendation was very nice. Ashwini did a great job taking care of us.
We are returning today for our 2nd time for 2 reasons: Our reservation at the Wharf was cancelled due to smoke from a fire at the landfill. And since we enjoyed our dining experience at Taikun 2 days ago.

Good but not great . Sushi was solid and fresh but nothing special. Cost was high, but it was our first night in GC and it was a good option to fall back on.

Everything at the Ritz Grand Caymen is spectacular. Every room is perfect, all the service staff are amazing & attentive and every other restaurant on site has food that is impeccable as to taste, presentation and quality. At Taikun the service was good but as far as the actual food I would say that just about any corner sushi restaurant puts Taikun to shame. Taikuns rolls are loose (they literally fall apart when you try to pick them up), they are at best mediocre in taste and they are vastly overpriced.

Nice setting good ambiance. Overall though, overpriced and not very good sushi. I eat sushi all over the world and this was some of the most mediocre I have had in a long time. Good sake choices though.

We came expecting an upscale experience and environment, but found young kids, people with shorts and flip flops, and tee shirts detracting from our experience. Understand that this is a family resort, so recommend leaning into a more casual environment and pricing. The food and service itself were great, though. We just wish we knew what we were getting into so we wouldn’t have gotten glammed up for a Saturday night out - felt embarrassed and out of place.

We went to Taikun for our anniversary dinner on Monday and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was great and there was a good atmosphere. The one comment I have is that it took a long time for our order to be taken and for the waiter to come and bring us water at the beginning of the meal. We tried getting their attention multiple times but appreciate that the restaurant was busy. Following the initial issue the service was great. I would highly recommend, especially for a special occasion.
