Will go back

We are from Wyoming so on our travels we always try out different sushi restaurants until we find one we love. We would definitely go back to this one, the atmosphere, chefs and servers were all great. The sashimi was great, miso was great and the roll we had was average but still good.

I had dinner / late lunch here with a co-worker as we stayed across the street at the Courtyard hotel. The service was very good, the drinks were good (hard to mess up a beer, unless you serve it warm). The food was, OK. It wasn't bad, but wasn't what I was looking for either. We had some sushi, and... More

The fish was OK, but definitely not what I'm used to getting in California. They claimed the salmon was wild, and I would hope it is in Idaho.

I had heard good reviews about the place from colleagues who work in the area. As someone who travels on business 70% of the time, I usually find sushi bars a great retreat for a "party of one". Not so with this place! Not only did the sushi chef/owner make a snide remark about "just a party of one" (when... More

Tried Sakana for the first time today. Very disappointed in the flavor and quality of the Sushi and the poor service. Ordered a Dynamite Roll, a Spicy Tuna Roll and Maguru and Himachi. Bill came to $28+ and did not include miso or salad. Flavor of rolls was bland. SIze of Nigiri was small. Had 3 different servers waiting on... More

I ordered their shrimp and noodle dish, which turned out be delicious. My wife had their crispy salmon rolls and she loved them. We finished off our meal with their deep fried banana which is to die for. Great family environment, outstanding food and good service at a reasonable price.

Found the hibachi expensive and ordinary. Over $20 for an entree and 2.50 extra for fried instead of steamed rice. Service was also mediocre. Waiter never came by after serving the entrée. Had to ask for the bill. The place was not that busy. Not worth going back.

Sakana Japanese Sushi absolutely lives up to high expectations. It is conveniently located across the street from the Courtyard Hotel where we were staying. Unassuming on the outside, once inside everything changes. The restaurant is divided into sections for a bar, table seating, tatami rooms, and teppanyaki grill and tastefully decorated throughout. The first sign of quality was the extensive... More

Ate here for a work meeting last month. The location was great, based on my hotel, as it right across the street. The sushi was good, but we did order Steak too. The Steak done "Benihana" style in that it was chopped in to small pieces, and grilled with way too much sauce, seasoning etc. As a result was that... More

This is a great place to dine in or take out. I would definitely recommend it. I eat here frequently while traveling on business and the service and quality are consistent. The sushi is fresh and clean. They also have a great atmosphere.
