Definitely a tourist trap. Don't waste your money if you want authentic Japanese cuisine. Ramen was soggy and bland, absolutely not worth 20USD. Edamame was acceptable, nothing special. Only good thing is they were very accommodating to one in our party who did not like Japanese food and accommodated her with full menu from the Italian restaurant on site. VERY... More

High quality sushi. Fresh tableside ground wasabi which I rarely see. Salmon belly, particularly tender. At the Ritz Carlton I expect great food and great service, but our server Joel was particularly good. He had a certain enthusiasm for the menu that made us excited too.

Great welcome service, at the entrance gave you few choice of setting, including nice comfortable boots and community table.The 5 course menus is a must and quality price the winner in the Island. Don't miss the Hamachi tartare and the chocolate dessert, to die for.

This is a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton Hotel on 7 mile Beach. Let me start by saying that I have no issues with my dinner experience there. Food was very good and well prepared and well presented. Staff was nice and attentive. Hamachi Nigiri and Dragon rolls were excellent. Chicken Gyoza was not made in house. Have been to... More

Unbelievably delicious food. I had the Omakse tasting menu twice. Our family enjoys Japanese food and Taikun is at the top of our favorites list. Outstanding friendly service and the fresh grated wasabi (grated on sharkskin) was super special. The presentation of the dishes were beautiful and the tastes exceed all our expectations. Would go back in a flash

We generally have a rule on vacation..."don't eat at the hotel." There's a reason for this. Typically overpriced, average food and more often than not uninspired service. Taikun fit the mantra to a T. Service was slow and without any grace or enthusiasm, prices were listed in CI (Cayman Island Dollars) but billed in dollars (25% more), and the Sashimi/Nigiri... More

The food was terrific, the service was great and the atmosphere was great. They used fresh wasabi root. The fish used in the sushi was very fresh. If you're in Grand Cayman it's the best eating experience you can have if you like sushi.

Taikun was really good and service up to par, but food was really pricey for what it is. They worked with my gluten free requirement but in doing so diminished the flavor/experience.

My wife and I ate Herr on our first night in the Caymans at the Ritz. The setting and atmosphere was perfect to celebrate the start of vacation. Both our servers were delightful and attentive. The drinks as well as the sushi we had were some of the best we've ever had, and we love sushi. We loved it so... More

The sushi at Taikun is one of the best I've ever had but this was all overshadowed by horrendous service. Firstly, a few hours before dinner, the restaurant left a message asking us to call back to confirm our reservation. We did, within the hour, and we made to feel as if we were bothering them by calling, being told... More
