I wish there was a place to post a picture because the "extra" avocado I ordered was a joke. It was the most meager amount--the thickness of a drinking straw, and I joked with the waiter that I couldn't imagine what my sushi had been with the regular amount. On the other hand, the salmon was fresh, they had a... More

Had a celebratory dinner there with my son and we both enjoyed steaks that were perfect. Great desserts too along with some decent wine. Higher price than lots of other good food choices, but worth it

While me and my partner were volunteering at a hostel in Leon, we visited Manhattan several times, it's that good! The service and food are professional and to a really high standard. They really pay attention to detail. Would recommend going on Monday as they have a 2 for 1 offer. They also host DJ/music events. The restaurant is modern,... More

Showed up at 5:15, and the bartender told us they didn't open until 5:30....wouldn't let us wait inside for the 15 minutes, or serve us a drink. Not impressed.

Who would have thought - amazing sushi in Leon! Great variety and beautiful presentation. All selections were hand made to order, and each were distinctive in flavor and ingredients.

But the "shared bathrooms" are Definately a negative. When I go to the Ladies room, I don't expect to have a guy in the stall next to me. Just weird. Sushi is good - Too much cream cheese in everything for my taste. Beats the fried selections from other restaurants.

This restaurant is great, especially if you've tired from eating the usual rice and beans. This is the only place where we tried sushi in Central America, and we were a bit hesitant as every other sushi restaurant we've seen seems overpriced or the quality looks horrible. Manhattan was amazing though- fresh , delicious sushi at very reasonable prices. Add... More

Manhattan is a great spot- one of my favorites in Leon and a restaurant I go to regularly. They have excellent sushi; best I've had in Nicaragua and beyond. Besides the high quality food they also have great drinks and regular specials, as well as the only good wine I've had in Leon. The low key but elegant atmosphere is... More

We are located in the living city of Leon facing La Perla Hotel. We offer sushi tapas and kickass cocktails in a very different atmosphere, we play all sort of music but NO reggaetone...sorry. Our Chefs always propose you the freshest fish and the tastiest recipes. If you're up for a drink or more or want to dine with friend in a classy relax atmosphere Manhattan is the place !open from 5.30pm closed on sundays and mondays
