Japanese Restaurants in St. Thomas

On St. Thomas, Japanese food is synonymous with sushi restaurants, with a few exceptions. The best Japanese 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 Japanese/sushi restaurant on St. Thomas is Enkai, an intimate little 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 and monthly full-moon parties.

There is not much Asian cuisine over on St. John, but Happy Fish's creative oriental 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.
