The staff was great and all on key. I became ill and everyone was so very helpful. I did manage to eat the seaweed salad and mussels, the best on the island, before I took ill. The ambulance was called and everyone remained on point. I am very thankful for the assistance I received.

The specialty rolls were the best. Standard stuff not as much. Of the 4 of us 3 thought food better than average but 1 didnt. Ive eaten sushi at the Ritz and another place in Red Hook that I thought better. Given its location in a high tourist area, I thought overall pretty good. Biggest complaint was the "crab". It...

Been wanting to try this Sushi place for a while and finally did. The menu offered many choices and we ordered some seaweed salad and 2 large rolls: Spicy Tuna and Spicy Crab. The seaweed salad was excellent, as was the Spicy Tuna Roll. However, the Spicy Crab Roll featured immitation crab ( I.e. sea legs) and that was disappointing.

Very nice and freandly staff. The sushi was not one of the best but was OK. Probably I will not so again. For one Californian rolls (8 small pcs), one Philly rolls (8 small pcs), one coca cola and one mango smash I've paid 36 usd.

Got a recommendation from another hotel guest. Took a taxi from Marriott about $6 per person each way. We had the hurricane and volcano roll. Excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant near cruise port

I’m not a big Sushi fan, but my wife is, so guess what? I have to say that I also get dragged to a lot of Sushi restaurants in the states but I do like this one probably the best. Love to sit outside, enjoy the atmosphere and the great dishes they prepare.

I used to come here waaaaay back when and went bananas over the mussels they used to serve. Now that I'm back in St. Thomas after a number of years I felt it's time to check out this restaurant again... It moved to Havensight near the cruise ship pier, which was most welcome. The last time I ate here was... More

What separates Beni Iguana’s most from other sushi bars, besides our great sushi and large fish portions, are our mussels. In fact, we guarantee you will love our mussels just as much as you will love our famous Iguana Sauce. Our Iguana Sauce was originally designed for our veggie rolls and salads, but our patrons started using it for everything else on our menu. In fact, this much sought-after condiment is quickly becoming expected by our regulars. Come in to try our savory dishes that everyone enjoys so much.
