Restaurant was nice enough with good ambiance and an excellent location just north of the city on the main drag. We ordered the sushi and it was very good considering we are at a Palm Springs restaurant, a city not known for its great sushi...More

Loved the fish but it may as well have been served on beds of Jacksons. I don't mind paying $60 for tasty fish, but I mind walking away hungry after doing so.

I had been wanting to try Sandfish since it opened. My husband is not a sushi fan as was the case with several friends spouses - so four of us went for stag night sushi. The welcome was great and we were walked through the...More

I ate at Sandfish a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. First, the concept was new to me: drink whisky while eating Japanese dishes. The whisky selection is very good and goes well with the food (I had a Scottish pure malt). As for...More

My husband and I enjoyed our meal here. The staff were knowledgeable about my gluten allergy and they altered the sushi I ordered to accommodate my dietary restriction and they even had gluten free soy sauce! We sat outside at the little bar top. I...More

This is a hipster sushi place with an overcrowded parking lot, an unimaginative menu reliant on oversauced, overpriced sushi rolls, and a small loud seating arrangement. We actually like sushi and sashimi, not sauced rolls, but the selection of that is pedestrian and the restaurant...More
