I am starting with the exceptional service at Tanoshi because the level of service was the best I have had in a long time. It could not be faulted. The sushi was magnificent- presentation was superb. I had salmon and scallop sashimi and a prawn / salmon roll all of which was wonderfully put together. Enjoyed the little touches -... More

The place, inside the Swiss Hotel has the best Japanese chef available, I would say in Ecuador. [Have been living in Japan almost for 27 years and have tried other places too] For those that prefer the pure Japanese food this is the best place to try. Taste and flavors are the closest to Japan considering the distance between these... More

This place was a great restaurant for a large crowd/private event. Two chefs cooked the food right in front of us, performed tricks and provided a great dinner, good service and generally, a fun entertaining time.

This is a good sushi restaurant in Quito. Its inside the Swissotel hotel and the menu is very ample. The fish is fresh and the servings are quite good. My reason for the rating is not because its bad, it is actually quite good and better than any strip mall sushi in Anytown, USA. It is simply that you'll find... More

Ordered take out sushi for family dinner. Was disappointed in general as it was of ordinary quality. Good rice but fish (neta) was thin . The price was not in line with the quality of their work: too expensive. Took a very long time to prepare, far longer than they informed (they had very few customers that night...).

Just had lunch with my family (4 adults and 4 children) at this place which used to be one of the best places in town. Not only that they have importantly reduced the portions' size but their service is extremely slow, and their prices are above any rational standard. Don't get tricked by the "kids eat free" promotion since, for... More

Stayed at the Swissotel and just dido not have it in me to go out for dinner on that night. Ordered some room service sushi and was very impressed with the quality. It was really, really good. The down side - the price. Very very expensive.
