Yesterday occasionally visited Sakanaya sushi-bar in Münster. It was the biggest nice surprise of the day! I enjoyed there very tasty sushi with freshest fish, and very friendly atmosphere! Perfect take-away system as well. Thanks to the boss for a nice surprise)

The teppanyaki has been hit or miss for us; too many factors that can cause your experience to head south. But the sushi bar is consistent. And take out is also very good.

We kept being bypass due to our group size. People with one less person in their group allowed a table before us. Others kept being given table before us. This was very rude of their hostess.

We walked in on a Saturday night at about 5 pm with no reservation. They said they had no room for Teppanyaki but if we wanted to wait a few minutes to see if the 5 o'clock reservation showed up we could. We got lucky and they were a no show so we got their table (we had a party... More

Now I... More

We have been to this Teppanyaki restaurant several times over the years. In our opinion, it has had the best, and most entertaining chefs in the Fresno area. They have for the most part been friendly, interactive and good cooks. Years ago there used to be a chef named "Saki bomb Tom" who was really entertaining and taught the table... More

We have tried many times to overlook the policy that management has regarding their payment system. First off, they are the ONLY restaurant that DOESN'T properly detail the items that were ordered and the prices for each item. What they do is print out a generic bill with prices attached and then staple a servers order sheet to the printout.... More

First time here we had the rock star roll, fresno roll and the red rose roll with sampler fish and the terikayi chicken benito. sushi was good and chicken wasn't as good as Merced Pocket 8's. The Mochi was very good and the Soki was great
