On St. Thomas, Asian food is synonymous with sushi restaurants, with a few exceptions. The best Asian restaurants on the island therefore tend to be the best sushi restaurants -- but if sushi's not your thing, most of these eateries have non-sushi items on the menu as well.
The widely-acknowledged best Asian/sushi restaurant on St. Thomas is Enkai, an little waterfront eatery tucked into a corner between Crown Bay and Frenchtown. Here, all items are handmade to order, and the chefs pride themselves on the freshness of their ingredients and the beautiful presentation of the food.
Though it's not well known, Watahoshi gets rave reviews for its sushi, and gives Enkai a run for its money. Just a tiny shack on Hull Bay Beach, Watahoshi offers a totally different atmosphere than Enkai, but equally superb fish.
Runners-up in the sushi stakes include Beni Iguana in Havensight, and Buddha Sushi near Bolongo. Beni Iguana boasts a hip, urban atmosphere and a conveyor-belt style delivery system (like the ones found in many large cities in the U.S.), while Buddha has a more soft-focus vibe, outrageous rolls, and monthly full-moon parties.
For fusion cuisine with Asian and Latin accents, Havana Blue at the Marriott will knock your socks off with dishes like tuna tartare with soy-lime vinaigrette, and miso-crusted sea bass.
There is not much Asian cuisine over on St. John, but Happy Fish's creative Japanese concoctions and sushi plates attract a loyal crowd. And if you're planning to dine at Asolare, one of St. John's most celebrated restaurants, you'll find a few Asian-inspired menu items there too.
