We went to El Japonez with friends and waited 10 minutes to be seated (weekend). The service was alright but not excellent. The dishes were tasty and quickly served.

El Japonez is "mexican style" sushi restaurant.
The serve many kind of japanese dishes, but most of them with a mexican touch.
If you like raw tuna and salmon, you have to ask first for the "salmon sushi cake", adn also the "Bowl Hanami", that one is a bowl with rice, fresh tuna cubes seasoned with a special spicy suace, with avocado and some other ingredients.
Also, they have a very cool concept and atmosphere.
It is a little expensive, but I think it is worth it.

Reasonable Japanese restaurant with (ofcourse) Mexican influences. Nice menu and a lot of sake choices. Seafood is ok, I wouldn't go for the meat.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere!! It is very well decorated and the service is great.
I had sushis and they tasted really good! Some of them had a Mexican touch, which made them unique.
They also have some tables with a grill, where the food is prepared for you, in front of you. It is really nice and fun, but is also the only negative point I saw in the restaurant: if you are in one of those tables, or too close to them, you can leave the restaurant a little smelly. Even with this inconvenient, I would go back there if I had a chance!

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was great!
Japanese with a Mexican twist. You want to order everything!
Located in the heart of a very trendy area. Although it was a little bit loud.
Definitely will come back!
