I seldom give bad reviews but here goes...this is the third time I've been here and I knew from my past experience the food that I ordered was pretty good. I ordered their salmon teriyaki and my I was surprised that not a thought was put in making the food. The salmon didn't taste very fresh and the teriyaki sauce:... More

Went to their happy hour which is from 2pm to 5:30pm. You can get a ramen noodle bowl for $5.00 and several sushi rolls $5.00 each. Best to go before the rush which is around 3:30pm. It was very good and the atmosphere is also excellent. I would definitely go back and eat here again.

The food is well prepared and fresh. The bento boxes are a great deal and usually have a little sushi surprise. The people are nice.

My son and I went to Izakaya's for happy hour and they have the best prices. Their noodle soup is delicious and they even feature sushi at a discount price. The sushi isn't something that I "love" but theirs was even delicious and made me want more. You definitely leave this place very filled and ready for the next happy... More

Izakaya is a great neighborhood restaurant. Good bento boxes, ramen soups and rice dishes. Nice selection for vegetarians. Good selection of sake and beers. Prices are very good for the quantity of food. A bit cheaper than many Japanese restaurants in Sacramento. Service is generally good. We were there on New Year's Eve and they were busier than expected so... More

While in Sacramento for the weekend, we were lucky to find this Local’s restaurant for excellent Asian food at Fruitridge and Freeport Blvd! And we were fortunate to get the Happy Hour prices! We were quickly seated in the primo “cushy booth” near the Sushi Chef, made “famous” by TripAdvisor Reviews. (There is no sushi bar at Izakaya, but, really,... More

The Izakaya serves reliably good food for fair prices. They have an assortment of ramen dishes ($7.50) which are pretty good but would be better if their roast pork slices were of better quality -- still it is better than Hokkaido. Their bento boxes provide generous portions for the $7.50 - $8.50 prices; dinner bentos are $2 to $3 more,... More
