Really poor customer service, we arrive at 9:20 pm and it closes at 10:00 pm and they were already cleaning the kitchen, so they didn't want to serve us. Also the waiters were not friendly and the response time was slow

Our first visit to Wazaabi was not the best first impression. We saw that they had a special on Thursday and Sunday's "2 for 1" so we went there Thursday at 2:20pm. After standing around waiting to be seated, we were told to sit where ever we chose. After we sat it took 20 minutes for a waiter to stop... More

The food is amazing, I have been eating here for probably over a year now however yesterday I had the worst experience with their delivery service. I am a current customer, I was putting in a big order, they have me registered in their delivery system because they have delivered to my house before and all of a sudden they... More

While the food is passable, and the outside seating would be pleasant - if it were not for the sickening stench of cigarette smoke which one has to endure as the outside is smoker friendly. Avoid going after dark. The interior of the restaurant has dreadful lighting reminiscent of an Oxxo on a low wattage diet. The ambiance inside is... More

If you craving sushi in Cancun, you can't go wrong with this place. Situated in a little plaza, it is quiet and somewhat private. Very good menu, food, and service. We tried many things and there wasn't anything that I would recommend you avoid. We were 5 and ate a lot and the bill was $95. I would highly recommend... More

The Sashimi pieces were too big, the quality of the chicken yakitori was average. I would rather visit again the other Japenese Restaurant Irori because it is run by Japenese owners.

We walked from the Sheraton Four Points. Wait staff didn't speak a lot of english, but enough. Miso Soup - Fantastic. Lots of tofu, great flavor and texture. Spring roll with shrimp - Awesome. Huge. Eating the ends is almost impossible, unless you have a huge mouth like I do. Peanut sauce was perfect. Wasaaabi Roll - Again, great flavor... More

We took a taxi off the island to this spot, about a 10-15 minute ride from Westin Resort and Spa. It's somewhat isolated but in a nice/newer mall area with some other restaurants and a busy Starbucks. We loved everything we ordered and the service was excellent. They had a spicy edamame that was better than any we've ever had.... More
