Fresh sushi, nice soups and good tempura

Wouldn't rank it in my top picks for sushi, but a good place to grab a cheap and quick sit-down sushi. You can get a ton of food for 15$, and there is a sweet little candy bar on your way out that provides a wide assortment.

We went here late on a Friday night, it was our only option give the time and we had several of the special rolls. The Sushy is average, not terrible but not great. The service was ok too. We only go here for the convenience.

The food here is good but sometimes the service can be spotty. Lunch hour is pretty consistent but going there for dinner or late night you can expect to wait awhile for them to come and they will forget some of your items.

I have been here frequently over the past few years and each time I am blown away. I am hesitant to write a restaurant review as food is... More

Miso and tempura are blah but the sashimi was fresh and nicely sized. Service is a little cold at times.

First we had trouble finding parking in downtown. We called Sakana Grill to let them know that we would be late and they neglected to tell us that they actually have free underground parking which we discovered as we walked up to the restaurant. When we entered the place we mentioned to them that they could've told us about the... More
