“Delicious, interesting sushi”

Raw Sushi & Sake Bar
Price range: US$15 - US$50
Description: RAW is excited to bring to you the freshest, most creative sushi and sake selections on St Thomas!! The vibe is fun, hip and playful. The scene is sleek, modern and sophisticated. Sushi should be a social event - the best way to experience all of the amazing flavors and textures available is to order a variety of items and share them around the table. To ensure that you are enjoying our sushi at the peak of freshness, we will deliver your selections as they are created and place them in the middle of the table to be shared. If you have a specific request in how you would like your food to be delivered, please let us know. In order to achieve the perfect balance of flavor and visual appeal, every roll is carefully craft- ed to order. Our "hand picked" team of sushi chefs have created a menu of both traditional su- shi standards and unique specialty rolls that celebrate the diverse cultures of the Caribbean. For both our traditional and specialty offerings, we source fresh fish, fruits and vegetables from throughout the Caribbean. Our offerings of Sashimi, Nigiri, Chirashi and Maki Rolls are simple and classic - the tradi- tional condiments of soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger are the perfect accompaniment to the fresh, clean flavors found here. Just because something is so steeped in tradition, doesn't mean we can't have fun!! When it comes to our specialty rolls, we take a more light hearted approach. You will find that the names of our rolls reflect some of the "eccentricities" that make our island special. The flavors and textures you will find in our specialties are perfectly balanced - from the freshness of the seafood, to the seasoning of the rice, to the precise knife-work on the vegetables, to the sauc- es and glazes ranging from subtle to vibrant - each bite is a feast for the eyes as much as it is for the tongue. These flavors are designed to stand on their own without the addition of soy sauce, wasabi or pickled ginger. We ask for your patience and understanding that the "art" of sushi takes time ... so sit back, relax, have a sake-bomb and enjoy the show!! Kampai!!

We visited St Thomas in August. Tried RAW based on a couple local recommendations and liked it so much we went twice! Great happy hour specials, amazingly tasty edamame, unique and delicious rolls-we tried almost all of them. Love the fried roll and the ahi "tacos" were by far my favorite. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, making the whole experience practically perfect.
I hope they're doing okay after Irma and that anyone who visits makes sure to put them on their dining schedule!

WOW! The food at Raw was amazing. This was the best meal we had on our 10 day trip to the Caribbean. We will be back.

The sushi was amazing as was the sake menu. So fresh and great mix of ingredients in their rolls. So good we had to go back again during our week vacation and take the kids. They want to go back to St. Thomas just to eat there again. Highly recommend.

These guys have a great deal from 5-6pm and 9-10pm with their "Maki Hour" specials. Their head Chef Nate offers a creative menu and even a little chat if they're not too busy. Sam took care of us with a smile and some great cocktail recommendations. I wasn't drinking, and I don't recall what my buddy had to drink, but he was thrilled. This is a great dinner spot in Red Hook!

The sushi was delightful and everyone was very friendly. We ordered two rolls from happy hour and what a deal that was! We also ordered Sake Bombs which are fun because you get to play along and yell out Sake Bomb with the sound of a gong. We also ordered one more roll and were completely stuffed after that.
