“Great sushi deals for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Overall, the prices are average, comparable to Saji ya in Saint Paul, however great lunch deals. I recommend the Asian salad for a starter. You have an option to get 2 rolls for $8.95 or 3 for 12.95 during lunch. Great size rolls, highly recommend the sweet potato roll! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Great little sushi spot. Very friendly service...chef special rolls are about 3 times the price of regular rolls... Service was slow but the food was good!

“Unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We tried to go to the Highland Grill but there was a 30 minute wait so we opted for Sakana. Great food. The No. 9 roll was yummy. My wife had Seared Tuna. The taste and presentation were awesome. The lettuce wraps had good flavor but P.F. Changs and Big Bowl are better. Fried ice cream is a nice treat. Only issue was very slow service. Nice server but still slow, at least on the Saturday night we went.

“Fantastic Asian flavors!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food is delicious, the setting welcoming, the service first-rate. Though I haven't yet tried the sushi, I have tried several other dishes from the lunch menu and recommend this place without reservation.

Don't miss it! Friends and co-workers to whom I've mentioned my delight have come back raving as much as I. I fact, I'm taking another friend for lunch tomorrow!
