Dinner with friends

The Sushi is always fresh and their Cosmos are great. Everyone is friendly and it's always a fun time I would totally recommend it.

I always love Katana, either for lunch or dinner. If you can do a hibachi dinner, definitely check it out. Even if you can only pop in for lunch, it's still a great choice. I love getting the bento box lunches. So much good food packed into it! And don't forget to get the ginger dressing on your salad!

This used to be the only Japanese rest in Wilkes Barre area but now there are several. Still the best. Fresh well prepared food served by a helpful and efficient staff. Love to sit at Sushi bar and talk with Suzuki and other chefs always fun.

I was there as a part of a large group. and the restaurant did a good job of getting us in, and the offered habaki meal had options for red meat eaters, sea food and plain veggies. The chef at our table was funny and irreverent, made waiting for the food to cook entertaining. I will say that it was... More

Stopped here for a business lunch I had teriyaki shrimp, it came with soup salad and choice of rice, also fresh vegetables were included. The shrimp was plentiful and very tasty. The staff was very attentive. The prices were very fair. You can have your meal at the grill made in front of you if you chose.

I st time there. Need to try the veggie lunch box with tempura. Stunning is the best remark and it was good for also. Shrimp were outstanding with ever thing I would want. It isn't sushi for this box. A MUST try.

We've been going to Katana since it opened, more years ago than I'd like to mention, and not only is the Sushi the best around but you can ALWAYS depend on the quality! We've never found an eat-in place that comes close! Ai-San, Teresa and Suzuki know their business well and the service is wonderful. Sit at the Sushi bar... More

Our daughter, Amanda, alerted us to this marvelous restaurant. My daughter even has a special sushi roll the staff makes her by her NAME!! Very friendly and accommodating from the time you enter till the time you leave. Try it, I'm SURE you will like it and tell Suzuki, the owner that "Amanda" sent you. He'll know who it is... More

We were looking for a restaurant for my daughter's birthday that could accommodate 12 people. We are from Scranton, but needed a restaurant in Wilkes-Barre since we had a swim meet in Dallas the same night. We couldn't have been happier with the experience! We were seated very quickly and our waitress was very attentive, especially being a large party.... More

So many places offer sushi and hibachi, but very few are authentically Japanese, Katana is authentic Japanese made by people who care about quality. If you are in the Wilkes-Barre area, there is no need to look elsewhere, Katana is the Best! No one else comes close. I like the cooked crab and asparagus sushi and the cooked shrimp sushi.
