I didn't order any of the specialty rolls, just some orders of nigiri and tempura udon. Fish was fresh and delicious. The size of the fish was slightly larger than average. The vegetable tempura udon was just average. My friend ordered the chicken teriyaki and he liked it. Customer service was nice and friendly.

This is a very popular sushi place! Service is quick and friendly. Prices are very affordable and portion quite generous. My husband had the teryake chicken, l had the combo sushi/sashimi. We loved our lunch at Sakana in Ahwatukee. I used to go to Sakana in Mesa. They are both wqually excellent.

If you're in the Ahwatukee area and need a quick bite or after work sometime, this is a good choice. (There's not a lot of interesting choice in the area, frankly.) Somewhere between a sushi restaurant and a sports bar, this friendly neighborhood establishment has four locations in Phoenix ( Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, Glendale & Mesa.) Their menu has something for... More

I have eaten sushi everywhere even at the atlantas hotel in Bahamas and this is the best I have eaten....especially for the price. Very reasonable and great atmosphere

We went for teppanyaki to celebrate a teen birthday. The gentleman who cooked for us came out and gave us a warm welcome. He then proceeded to cook the meal without doing anything to make the experience fun. No tossing of food to us to catch with our mouth, juggling the egg with a spatula, or tossing an egg into...

This is a restaurant I visit so often. It is a wonderful sushi restaurant in our community. Great sushi at great price, can't beat. In the last 20 visits, there has been occasions when service was not 5 start. However I would pardon them because I noticed the waiters who provided bad service no longer works there. I guess many...

We love bringing friends and family from out of town here. Its fun watching their expressions when they see the portion sizes and taste the fresh sashimi. We also come here to celebrate because everyone leaves with a satisfied stomach. Lunch also includes miso soup.

What a sushi experience, that too in the middle of the desert!! The raw shrimp, two types of blue fin sashimis, sea urchin are absolute must to order.

Busy place and a little loud but the service was good. First time there and used to the portion sizes in Las Vegas, we ordered WAY too much food. I would go back in a heartbeat.. but order far less. The Tuna and Hamachi sashimi was incredible and you get several huge slabs of mouth watering fish. There are teppan... More

A local favorite for me, I have never had a bad meal or service here. Today's lunch was the sushi salad. It's chef's choice of sushi; today made with generous pieces of salmon, white fish, and tuna. Topped off with a larger ibi, and awash in their own salad dressing, the greens were a great fresh blend. Green tea ice... More
