I have to say that the food is very good, the bento boxes and sushi are good, the prices are fair but the service is the worst.. people serving do no have an idea of what Japanese food is and they are too slow ...

Dearest, My name is Fernando, I am the chef for Novoa Living Sushi, I am currently at Mercedes Norte in our new restaurant, I regret that my collaborators are not ready to be treated as you deserve, we are working hard on this assu story; We have lost some collaborators who resigned and this lowers our guard, in Costa Rica it is extremely difficult to work with the staff, work for work or for nesecidad and not for passion. Inculcating this becomes difficult, today my boys are already loving what they do, only lack the commitment to learn even more, when you want you can visit Mercedes Norte, I leave you my number, Te; 2560 6015 will be happy to assist you. Very cordially I say goodbye, Fer.Novoa.

Novoa Sushi always surprise me, no matter how many times I visit this place.
Basic japanese cuisine like Miso Soup, is very tasty and fresh. Try any of the rolls and you will experience an amazing flavor in every bite. If you want to try another plate, please ask for chicken teriyaki dish... I haven't try anything better than this!

This is for the new, Mercedes Norte, Heredia location.
Had such a good experience during my week visit, I had to go back.
Second trip's experience was just as good as the first.
Best sushi I've had in Heredia. Salmon, red tuna, snapper - all fresh.
Prices are reasonable - make sure you order the sashimi 15 or 20 piece...then
a couple of the great rolls to finish filling you up. Cold lemon ice tea with crushed ice
is refreshing, but a lot of sugar. Not a problem if you like sweet! Hot green tea is
a good choice. I am looking forward to my next trip here.

The sushi was good made with fresh fish and good selection.... service was good but in an off-beat mall like location with a view of Hooters..... this place has the noisiest blender I have ever heard!

For years I considered this place the best japanese food in Costa Rica,they used to have the best service and food in this category, the restaurant is amazing, have a variety of options in sushi, sashimi, rolls and all.
I would just suggest them to offer cold drinks with sake and fruits, this would set them apart of any japanese restaurant in CR.
Additional I would suggest a hard trainning to the waiters to know all the menus and options to make customers fell more confortable and take orders faster.
It´s a place I recommend highly, but they need to take care with the quality of the food and presentation to keep as a standard restaurant in the town.
