I have eaten there several times. The food is always fresh. It is a little hard to find as the entrance is very soon after the stoplight on eagle road and overland. Heading south it is first driveway on the left. The restaurant is hidden by trees planted by entry to strip mall. Worth the money.

We had two different sushi dishes and the shrimp yaki soba. The yaki soba was decent but the sushi was not so good. It was pretty disappointing really. The service was spotty and our server wasn't all together pleasant. She consistently forgot things and didn't refill drinks. Overall, not inedible but not something I'd want to pay for either. Maybe... More

Best quality Sushi in the area! Beautiful, fresh, delicious. Great for date night. Staff are friendly and will take good care of you. We love the specialty rolls: Hana, Mamasan, Viking and spicy angel but all of them are good. We haven't tried one we didn't like.

We stopped in for the $1 sushi and stayed for the hibachi. The sushi was really good and fun to order a bunch of different kinds to try. We enjoyed the hibachi and had the steak and lobster, which were cooked perfectly. The show was your typical hibachi cook, and very entertaining. We'd eat here again.

After hearing rave reviews from friends and one family member, we decided to give Sakana's a try. The place is very clan and pleasant but the sushi just wasn't that great. At least not the ones we had. Some of the fish was a tad bit dry and the rolls we ordered were not at all flavorful. Bland is as... More

This restaurant was right across the street from my hotel so I thought I'd try it. The rolls are very large. I ordered an Evergreen and an Iso Maki. I probably should have only ordered one (they were really big). I liked the Evergreen (it gets good reviews) but the Iso Maki was phenomenal and I highly recommended. Also, the... More

Love, love, love this place. The sushi is always fresh, the staff is friendly and I always overeat. Well, this last one is nobody's fault but my own.....it's hard to just pick one or two rolls and they're often rather big. The menu is extensive as the restaurant also serves a variety of appetizers, salads, hibachi (in the back of... More

You cannot beat the fresh fish and great atmosphere. I have eaten there many times with friends and family and enjoy it every time. At least twice a month for the last five to six years and have never been disappointed. Their special rolls are always top notch and the Miso and rice are done perfectly. I go nowhere else... More

Have not been here in 3 years since I left Idaho, but still my favorite place for sushi. Being from California I am very picky and this place is as good as any that I have ever at in California or Oregon.

I have gone here for the last few years everyone I want fresh sushi and fish. They have consistently met the mark on quality and quantity. My family love it and we have had a couple of small parties there in one of their private rooms. The private rooms have a table that you can sit Japanese style at or... More
