Just spectacular! The service people are very nice, it was pretty fast and the dishes have great presentation and taste like heaven... We ordered pad thai with shrimp and fish sandwich... Fair price, nice place music and atmosphere... simply PERFECT!

Fantastic restaurant, nice decoration, great staff, but most important, let's talk about the food! I'm a sushi lover, and Katana's sushis are incredible, very original. The ribs are sooo tender, they are to die for. By far my favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa.

We live in SJO and visit the area several times a year. Before we even arrive we make a reservation at Katana. We have tried just about everything on the menu, all delicious. The pad thai is the best I have had anywhere in the...More

Overpriced and bad food. 2/7 would not come back again. Papa bless. Decent wifi though. Super slow service but one of them was nice.

Higher end restaurant. Great food and drinks, but perhaps a little pricey for the drinks. If you have any room left for dessert, get the chocolate torte with salted caramel sauce!

We came here quite randomly and we enjoyed a lot the dinner. Everything was good but worth to mention are the ceviche and the tuna carpaccio, both incredible. We order a lot but we didn’t have problem in finishing it all. Credit cards accepted.
