A combination sushi bar and steam tables, Sakana's has creative and somewhat rare offerings (I had yellowtail collar). A full bar, very competitive prices and convenient parking in a strip mall make this my top sushi choice in Phoenix.

The Sakana chain has received many great reviews on Yelp - across all Phoenix locations. Since I wanted something inexpensive and filling, I decided to check the restaurant out. This restaurant is definitely a go-to place for both locals and visitors alike. The hostess seated me after five minutes since there were plenty of people there (always a good sign... More

We frequent often since there is no other real options in Ahwatukee . Had the udon soup with tempura $9 awesome value and good soup base. YELLOW tail sashimi was good . Fair quality . Spider roll was good as well. Not the best sushi but no other options near by. No fine dinning here . Decor needs updating for... More

Everything is always fresh. They go through a ton of sushi no matter what day of the week it is. Always feels like a special treat for me when I go. The arrangements are delicious. I like to sit at the sushi bar just to see all the food come out. Today I had their Sakana lunch. Assortment of sushi.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Been there many times. Great, fresh Japanese food. Lunch specials are great, as is fried fish plate.

Recently my husband and I went to Sakana for lunch. It was not very busy yet our waiter took forever to wait on us. My husband's meal came out first and then 15 minutes later, I had to ask where my meal was. The waiter kind of snapped at me, "It's coming." I know with such little staff, it was... More

I am not a big sushi person, so the menu was somewhat limited for me. There is tempura and teriyaki on the menu, but their specialty is sushi. I had the Sakana Delight for lunch and it was very good. Others with me had the tempura, pot stickers and a sushi luncheon special. We all enjoyed our meals. There are... More

We stumbled upon this sushi restaurant years ago when we had an appointment nearby and, we liked it so much that we started going back regularly. For several years, we showed up every Tuesday night, when we were seated at "our table" and brought "the usual", including their yummy Salmon Dynamite, Unagi nigiri from which the eel hung off both...

Fresh sushi, large sashimi and Nigiri pieces. Great value and interesting specials. New menu which expands their menu pretty significantly. Sat at sushi bar during last visit. Nice enough, but definitely treat their regulars in a different way than their regular customers (not unexpected, but at times a little uncomfortable). The sushi place to go to in Ahwatukee

I have been here many times for lunch, and when Desiree is working, one word describes it all: WOW! This young lady is the best waitress ever! When you are in a rush, Desi can get iy done FAST. Ramon is an award-winning chef and with their lunch specials being reasonably priced, I can always afford a nice tip and... More
