Still Delicious....
Our second time to Henshin and it didn't disappoint. We are Omakase snobs AKA hard to impress. Book seats at the bar if possible and get the "premium" Omakase. You won't be disappointed. The Chef clearly has a passion for sushi/fresh fish. This is not the place to go if you want a salmon/cream cheese/mango sauce/crunch roll. This is clean, fresh, (mostly) nigiri sushi at it's best. Delicious.

We've enjoyed Omakase in major cities around the world and Henshin is world class. A5 Wagyu was legit!

Amazing Sushi
We are picky sushi eaters after having some of the freshest fish in California. We were hesitant to try this place, and we are SO happy we did! We were only in Sayulita for 4 nights, we came here 2 nights because we loved it so much. he chef and his brother are great in taking care of you and create a unique experience eating local fish and fish prepared perfectly. I can't recommend this place enough. Give them a try!

We ate at Henshin last night. We are from Vancouver Canada and have eaten a LOT of sushi in our lives, This was seriously the BEST ever!! Although it's expensive( 5 of us with a bottle of Sake was 1100 pesos pp), it was seriously DELICIOUS! Lizzie Barry was our server. She did an amazing job! She was very knowledgeable and attentive. I would highly recommend an evening at Henshin. The decor is beautiful!
