Andy never fails to supply the freshest, high quality sashimi around. This past week, I even had a rainbow roll and a california roll. Andy uses a high grade vinegar so the rice isn't bitter. I also had the tempura, which I rarely have, but...More

Ok, this isn't a fancy place at all. But if you want the best sushi in the East Bay go to Sakana. Just go with the classics and you won't be disappointed.

Been there many times, great for kids (japanese soda that pops), good, fresh sushi, atmosphere minimal but comfortable place. Never had a bad piece of raw stuff. Teriyaki is so so.

Our family goes to Sakana whenever we have sushi. They have excellent "real" sushi - fresh fish and well made sushi with the perfect balance of ingredients - not too much rice, as many cheap places have. They serve both outstanding sushi and some unusual,...More

This is our 'regular' Japanese eating-out place. The location is a bit out of the way but you can always park right in front - a rarity in Walnut Creek! Plus it's rarely crowded, so you don't need reservations. The food is always good tho'...More
