Every chance I get I will go there. Best deal Monday's 1/2 price! What a great deal that is! I am going with my grandson who is home from college and he loves this place as well tomorrow.

I had the all-you-can-eat option on a Wednesday. The sushi tasted good and if you want to try out a few different things, this is worth a try. You can definitely get your money's worth and then some. Service is a bit slow but I didn't mind.

Okay, I knew I shouldn't have expected much. Service was slow, had to flag someone down each time. Waited 10 minutes to get wasabi, sushi was so-so. If your imagining the sushi-go-rounds of Japan you will be quite disappointed.

The weather was rainy, didn't feel like driving to find Sushi. Searched on my phone and found around the block Sakana-Ya. I ordered the Spicy Kani Salad to start as an appetizer. Very tasty, bold and plentiful. My palate was all set for the Sashimi. Salmon, White Tuna, Yellow Tail and Eel. The piece were big, the portions huge but... More

Delicious sushi! My daughter and her friend and I went here today to have sushi and enjoy Armory Square. I wish we could have enjoyed everything outside but we had our fill and then headed for the outdoors. The food was great, especially the spider rolls!! Everything was wonderful. Great Sushi!

The Fayetteville location is a different place now, but my boyfriend and I ate at Namu on Walton Street Saturday night and it was delish! Great menu, sushi was fresh and tasty. Sakana-Ya is owned by the same people and is right next door, a more casual experience with the convener belt and all. We will absolutely go back here.

I never have been to an Sushi Bar - my daughter with my 2 young nieces decided to give it a try - the establishment is very swanky - the interior design is very Industrial looking - very cool - white - sharp lines - very clean. There is an conveyor that runs along the counter, as your sitting you... More

This restaurant is now Daishin. The service was prompt and pleasant. We ordered drinks and appetizers and main dishes, and all was served well with great presentation. We had the red head, pink lady, and one other, and all were delicious. We didn't have room for dessert. We will definitely be back.

This place is know called DaiShin Japanese Restaurant. We tried to get into BoneFish Grill on a Sat nite but it was booked solid. This place is in the same shopping center. The food was just ok as there are many sushi options to chose from. Made reservations for 6:30 but not necessary as we arrived but place did fill... More
