    Our reservation was for 8:30 pm. We were not told that the restaurant would be closing at 10:00 pm instead of the 11:00 pm, which is the current curfew in Tulum due to COVID. We were rushed to order and you could definitely tell that the food was made in the same manner. Very sloppy. This is my second time visiting Tseen Ja and was very disappointed with all of the above. Our bill was close to $1,000 USD and for the amount of money, it would have been nice to enjoy the ambiance and food for more than an hour, which is the time we had at our table.

    This was the best sushi I have ever experienced in my life. All the fish was incredibly fresh and delicious. The ambience is something you cannot experience anywhere else in the world and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the tulum area.

    Everything, from the black truffle edamame to the wagyu ishiyaki was excellent. My wife and I celebrated the last night of our honeymoon with a trip to Tseen Ja and I'm so glad we could get reservations. Our service was great, our waiter personable, funny, and very helpful. He even gave us his recommendation for an off menu drink to go with dessert, and it was perfect.

    5 out of 5 for ambiance. This was hands down the most aesthetically pleasing restaurant I’ve been too. With that said, the service was not up to par. All the food came out at the same time and the table was tiny. I didn’t feel the waiter was attentive since we had to ask different waiters for a second and third drink, as well as water. My bf and I asked a few questions about the food and I felt the waiter was a bit condescending by describing everything as “fancy.” My bf and I are big foodies and have traveled to various countries so this was unexpected. We dressed relatively casual so weren’t as dressed up as some of the other guests (sparkly short dresses, heels, designer bags, etc) so I think he assumed we weren’t going to spend $. The food was decent but I definitely have had better sushi in the states. Lobster tempura was the most unique thing. The bill was about $300 w/out a tip. The waiter was looming over me (“is everything okay?”) as I was trying to calculate the tip so I wound up leaving 25% bc I just wanted to get out of there. We wound up going to the bar to get a night cap, bartenders choice, and that was a great way to end the night. Overall a cool experience but definitely overpriced and pretentious.

    I’ve been to Azulik before and have enjoyed a wonderful meal at Kin Toh; however, this was my first time at Tseen-Ja. It was the most incredible experience. The setting is so organic and one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. The food and drinks were delicious. The chef really knows how to create harmonizing flavor combinations, while focusing on the fresh ingredients. One thing that may have topped the food: The service. If you have a chance to go here, I highly recommend you request Alberto as your server! He provided the absolute best dining experience I’ve ever had. Not only was he attentive, he also was so personable. I think we carried on conversation for over 30 minutes and it felt like we were talking to an old friend. Andy, the manager was also beyond accommodating and made our experience that much better.

    Beautiful setting but the seating is really uncomfortable, especially if you are a tall person. You are basically sitting in the floor with a low table. The Omekaze needs some work. The Chef’s Selection starts off strong but when you get to the sushi portion it loses momentum…? How? This is the Japanese resto for Azulik. Cocktails were great, but I’d suggest just getting something from the regular menu.

    Group of 3 and we ordered the Omakase. It was a hot mess. It was served “family style” but the proportions were such that not everyone would get to taste each dish. I flagged that there were three of us and asked if they made a mistake. Apparently this is just the way it’s served… so if you have a group, you will not get to try all items. There is no menu, it’s whatever the chef feels like. The serving staff are not sushi experts. Most courses they just dropped on the table with little or no explanation. Do not recommend.

    They charge 10$ a bottle for drinking water at the table and do not tell you until your check comes. They brought 3 bottles, non of them requested, and charged 30$ alone for water. Also, they had given us the wrong appetizer and when we tried to correct the server, he tried to argue with us and tell us we did not order what we said we did. Service was slow, hostesses were dismissive and misleading. Great ambiance, will not be returning. Save yourself money and time and go somewhere else for a better experience. The pictures online are better than the real thing. Guest are not even allowed to tour the property after spending $300+ On a dinner. That is all.

    There was so much hype about Azulik that we decided to splurge and try it. First the good: It is a very unique looking hotel which you probably have seen in Instagram pictures. The views from it are gorgeous. The food is good as well. The waiter service was also spot on. Now the bad: You haven't seen pretentious until you've been there. The whole attraction of the hotel is its unique design and the views. People come to take pictures. But we came to realize that our reservation allows us only to visit the restaurant. We were blocked from going to the hotel itself via the suspended bridge. We were blocked from even going to the 2nd floor of the restaurant we were in. On the way out I took literally 2 steps off the path to take a picture of the cool candlelit path and was almost tackled by the waiter for straying. Like WTF?! They tell you that you can only walk around if in addition to the restaurant, you pre-purchase some other admittance. I mean, seriously, we spent over $300 at the restaurant and we were treated as criminals in the restaurant itself. The manager had the face like he's about to start shooting people. Also, since everything is made of wood, bamboo, and straw, it's all very unstable and creaky. I'm just 160lb, but I was afraid that the chair won't hold. Every time I moved a little, it swayed violently. The same goes for tables. The tables are tiny as well, so if you order a 7-course dinner, you better finish your previous course before they bring out your next one. Someone next to us tried to get up and bumped the table a bit, the glass fell off and broke. He was taken out and shot out in the back. Overall, it wasn't a good experience. If you really want to see it, go for it, but just buy the admittance (I think it's $50) and make a reservation, and order just 1 small thing. Then tip the waiter to sneak you up to the 2nd floor. We'll probably never go back. Overall, it was very unpleasant,

    7 curses omakase only 4 kinds of sashimi and roll, 1 tuna collar for $450 USD is way overpriced and the food is not that amazing. For $450 USD two ppl can I can eat Michelin 2 stars in NYC. The servant is very busy, hard to find him. The entire place is full of crowded people and loud music. The indoor environment is nothing special. The outdoor nest is for picture only. I came here for the outdoor nest but instead I sit inside which is nothing special for photo-shooting. What a ripe off

    The ambiance in the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and the food was pretty good. I have a lot of food restrictions and they worked with me to accommodate my diet, which I appreciated. There were a few incidences that rubbed me the wrong way. The first is that after our waiter introduced himself, someone else came to take our order. I assumed it was because my order was complicated but then when the waiter came back he said “sorry someone else came to take your order - I was waiting on a table that had a $3k bill so I’m sure you can understand.” I found that to be unprofessional. The same waiter asked us to give him a review on TripAdvisor and that he would lose his job if he didn’t get a review, which felt a bit off to share at a restaurant that is positioning itself as high end. He stood there in a pressuring way to take our phones out and write a review. Lastly, when we left the waiters opened the check in front of us and were asking each other how much tip we left. In my opinion that’s not ok anywhere, but especially not in a high end place. In short food and ambiance was great and I had a negative experience with the service.

    Went there with friends for dinner. The food was amazing and not overpriced. However, the service wasn’t great, we had plans to go to after dinner and had to cancel after our wine bottle took 35minutes to arrive and got there warm. However, the view and the food made it worth it.
