This place is always consistent! It always has fresh fish and it always taste great. They have a good atmosphere and Tatami Rooms for private parties. The service is excellent. They are so consistent that some of the Sushi Chefs have been there over 20 years. They will always treat you right & the price is right on target. The... More

if we hadn't already been in Boulder for other reasons I would have really been disappointed. Had to ask for a fork and only got one small paper napkin, though I saw them folding napkins in the back. The food was very average. Will not go back.

This sushi restaurant is the best ever, except very rarely the service is slow or non existent. But that is very rare. The fish is fresh, the prices are reasonable and the sushi chefs ROCK. I have been coming here since 1986 and I have eaten sushi all over the US and SZ is bar none the most consistent and... More

We stumbled in here by accident and had a GREAT sushi meal. Our whole family loves sushi, and we think this is the best we've had in all of Colorado. The service was excellent, and we sat at the counter so we got to watch the chefs at work. The fish tasted like it was caught just hours before we... More

Went to Sushi Zanmai because it was highly recommended. The place was very busy on a week night. I'm not really sure why. The sushi by the piece seemed as if it was sitting out for awhile. It seemed dry and old. I didn't finish it b/c it concerned me. The Spider roll I ordered also seemed old and pre-made.... More

They have a fun atmosphere and connect with each customer, and provides great customer service. The sushi there is very delicious, and can be a big factor to a person to eat there as a regular.

the sushi place in boulder with the buzz. Pretty equivalent to any chain sushi, even for not being a chain. I'm told the upscale place attached to it has great food, but it really isn't veg, even pesco-veg, friendly. Zanmai is fine. you'll get decent and servicable sushi. there's some pure veg options. they have drinks. there's lots of other... More

Went there witha co-worker for lunch this week. It was pretty decent sushi. Not the best ever as I have heard others rave about the restaurant, but will probably be back ad would recommend in Boulder. Really thought the rolls were great and the tuna magaro was made just right.

Sushi Zanmai is always a busy, lively and pleasant place to go for sushi in Boulder. The food is delicious, the menu varied and the service attentive. Go early to avoid long waits. A few private rooms (sit on floor on tatami mats at table) are available for advance reservations; fun for parties. Karaoke on Sat nights after 10.
