I took my cousin and his fiance here and we all agreed that the food was okay. It should have been a sign - we were the only ones there! We ordered about 6 different rolls to share and were expecting our server to at least point out which ones were which...that didn't happen. Our dinner was definitely tasty, but... More

The atmosphere was very relaxed, which was probably the most enjoyable part. The service was average, the server seemed unfamiliar with the menu. She also lacked knowledge of the different types of fish, fortunately half of our party is familiar with sushi. The restaurant was also out of quite a few menu items which was also disappointing. Lastly, for the... More

Recently visited for dinner in the off season. Atmosphere was very quiet and not crowded in late September. In the off season the service was not that great (she was also new) but that was made up with the delicious food. Went there craving sushi but my husband and I ended up ordering an entrée from a nice selection of... More

Stopped by for a snack. The place looks a little ramshackle, but the interior is fine. It's right off the main road. We had a few rolls. They were excellent. Service was quick; however, we were the only one in there at 4:30.

We enjoyed Buddha Sushi, service was good and food was excellent! Bartender was helping as wait staff was short and did an excellent job.

Aside from the inside not matching the outside nice décor. Inside has be renovated but the place really lacks a skilled sushi chef. Service is very slow and seating uncomfortable.

Seriously... Love love this place!!!!! Been here a million times and they never disappoint. Raj, the owner is always behind the sushi bar and was great to chat with each time. I can't remember the name of my favorite dish--- volcano something. Loaded with spicy tofu and rolls. Love the atmosphere and reggae/ house/chill music vibe. Used to go here... More

Our AirBNB host recommended Buddha Sushi to us because he’s knows the owner, Taj, personally. This restaurant did not disappoint. The sushi is ultra-fresh and the prices are probably 1/3rd of what you would pay for comparable sushi in a larger city. They have incredible happy hour deals on sushi as well. This was such a great surprise because most... More

Buddha Sushi is located on the East End of St. Thomas and features the best sushi on the island. The ladies here at the laboratory are very fond of it and we've been there for take-out or parties. It features a very unique and creative sushi menu. The happy hour is the best time to go, from 5 - 7 pm.
