If you come for the atmosphere and would like to be served without wait by a moat of boats, you'd probably Katana a 4 or 5 star review. If you're coming for the sushi though, you can safely dish out a 3 star review or lower. The sushi is simply tasteless, lacking quality and creativity. I went with 3 stars... More

Tiny hole in a wall with not much competition around, which gives owner an idea that his place is busy and doing well. You will wait for an hour and an owner will be rude. Rice is dry and old. Avoid at all costs!

i visited katana sushi because of tripadvisor, searching for best rated sushi restaurant with conveyor belt. i was well prepared that it is not the fanciest restaurant at all. it's even a bit runned-down, but at entrance i heard the friendly japanese irashaimase from all of the working guys in chorus. food itself was great, probably one of the tastiest...

Tonight was disappointing. We came at opening and as soon as we sat down we were swatting FLIES away from the fish on the boat while sitting at the bar. And more disturbing was the LAYER of DUST on the rope that is directly above the boats of fish that goes around the river. We didn't notice this until the... More

Floating Wooden boats on a conveyor belt sailing around filled with delicious sushi as the chef prepares it right in front of your eyes. Each plate had a different price and as you stack them, that is your bill. By all means this is not a fine dining experience, definitely a local spot, always a wait since is very good.... More
