Business lunch was fun, but it took a bit long to get it started. Great value for the amount of food you get. Recommend if you are not in a hurry

We love Teppenyaki. Have been to many different restaurants of this type.( Sakura Chaya has superior tasting soup, salad, rice, and vegetables and most definitely SAUCE! ) Sakanaya's prices are far too high as well. Our chef was pleasant but not particularly engaging ( like Sakura Chaya & Japanese Kitchen.) We also went for friends Bday this last time, and... More

I trust this place for fresh fish. Our favorite sushi chef has been serving us for years. Always good service and great portions. The variety beyond sushi is excellent too and the service always great.

This place is great. We went out Friday night, it ended up being slow for the restaurant but fast service for ordering teppanyaki.We were seated right away and served our drinks. We had a fun friendly cook who did cool tricks. Down side it is very over priced! We only go on special occasions. When you have to pay extra... More

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 people and the only drawback is that you end up smelling like the food that... 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 every serving of that. Complain about it, and you get a "you should have known"...

The teppanyaki has been hit or miss for us; too many factors that can cause your experience to head south. But the sushi bar is consistent. And take out is also very good.

We kept being bypass due to our group size. People with one less person in their group allowed a table before us. Others kept being given table before us. This was very rude of their hostess.
