Banzai had the best Thai coconut soup I've had in Costa Rica! My mom and I had the sushi roll without rice and it was fantastic. I had the tuna poke bowl and my mom had the tuna bowl -- both were very fresh and the portions were very large. Excellent spot and cannot wait to go back

My wife and I live approximately 40 minutes from this restaurant, but when we want sushi, the drive is well worth it. We have never tried any of the many other Asian dishes they serve, but have often come with friends or family who don't care for sushi and after 40-50 visits, none of our family/friend guests have offered anything...

Came in on a Thursday night. It was very empty....but welcomed very well by the hostess. The sushi was excellent! Highly recommend the Valentine roll and Magic roll, they were fantastic. The appetizers were not good (shrimp tempura was oily and gyoza seemed frozen). Pad Thai was ok. Overall really recommend the sushi!

A large menu with an incredible number of options, so far all dishes have a very nice combination of flavors and usually very well cooked. The chef is obviously very creative, good service and great ambiance. A must if you like to venture in new flavors.

The place has a nice menu and at the first glance looks like you will be getting an amazing sushi experience but is not like that. Dragon eye sushi roll had a gummy fish I was not able to chew, they give very very little wasabi for two portion of sushi and when I got the bill I had the... More

This place offers incredible sushi, different and awesome flavor. The service can be slow, but the waiting is worth it. As soon as you eat it, you will want to go back.

Simply the best sushi in Costa Rica. Staff is always helpful and bilingual. We have never eaten anything besides sushi here but have often come with others who have eaten other dishes and they all raved about their meals.
