The sushi was excellent - some of the best I've had. The service was poor at best. We sat for 20 minutes before we were even greeted by our waitress. When we were finally able to order our drinks it was another 20 minutes before we got them. One in our party asked for a coke when the drinks came... More

This restoraunt was really nice, there was lots of delicious vegan options (pho,sushi, edamame, salads, sorbet) and the waitress was really nice. We were there on a Saturday for lunch and we were the only people there so everything was even better. It's kinda hard to find if it's your first time on the island, but if you ask the... More

Really enjoyed our evening here. From the outside of the restaurant I wasnt too sure, but as soon as we stepped inside it is heavenly. Right on the water. Great interior and everything you could hope for bay-side dining without any fuss. Food was terrific and the service was excellent. We were introduced to this place by Gwen and John... More

Excellent setting, good service, good happy hour, and truly creative sushi creations. It's not easy to get to from land, but from a boat there is a dock right there.

We spent 2 separate evenings at Enkai in the past week. Both of our experiences were outstanding. We recommend making reservations due to the limited seating. We ordered the special appetizers and a variety of rolls along with a desert. All were fresh and tasted unique. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This was our third trip to St. Thomas, and our third time at Enkai. We first dined with them back in 2010 when they were just starting out. We fell in love with the entire "experience" and not just the sushi. It's location and the friendliness and attention of the owner/staff is what made us anticipate our third visit after... More

We recently visited Enkai and were planning to sit at a table but recognized the bar tender from another restaurant we visited a couple of years ago so we sat at the bar. Marley was exactly as we remembered....very attentive....never had to wait for a drink and she has some funny one-liners :) Try her samurai mule! Highly recommend the... More

My husband and I visited today for an early dinner. This restaurant has tables that overlook the water, and is small and cozy. The sushi was fresh and creative. The Storm Roll was covered in an arugula salad with sprouts and other goodies. The service was professional yet friendly. BEWARE of Desserts!!! Although they have items like Lemon sorbet and...

Haven't been here in a couple years. Sadly no better. Sashimi is dry and flavorless. Compare this to red hooks raw bar where they have excellent fish. The rice is wet. Best dish is wasabi tobiko. The dim sum is deep fried so beware. The view is nice but it is warm as there is little breeze.
