Sakanaya Japanese Restaurant is a fun place to go to dinner. Your dinner is cooked on a grill in front of you by an entertaining chef. Be careful of the flying food! Food is very tasty. You will normally sit at a table with other...More

We used to come here often, but numerous price increases, and what I feel are shady business practices, and we no longer do. The servers will ask "do you want spicy sauce" with no mention of an up-charge, and then you end up paying for...More
