Get the voodoo chips. Trust me. Once you do, you'll go back all the time. Note that the half order is huge. The sushi here is the finest quality in the Tampa Bay Area, and the people are amazing. We live nearby and go almost every week - or order take-out. We're so lucky to have this jewel in our... More

Sakana is a hidden gem. Most people that I take here don't know about it, which is surprising. They offer traditional rolls and signature rolls. I recommend all the rolls, tbh. I have never had anything bad here. Not once has the fish been "fishy" or old. The sushi itself is well thought out, offering different flavors and textures within... More

Sakana is one of my favorite sushi restaurants in Tampa. It's got delicious, fresh sushi, without the busy and hectic atmosphere of most popular sushi places. Not to say this hidden gem isn't popular, oh..it is, it's just more off the beaten path. This place is must for sushi lovers. Enjoy!

Just had another wonderful meal at Sakana with my lady. We ordered 3 different sushi rolls and all were off the charts. We also love Mairena wines from Argentina and Sakana carries them. We both love sushi so we know the difference between excellent and average. Service was quick and courteous. Located close to Bayshore Blvd. so an easy and... More

I love this place. I frequent it a lot because I live nearby, and every time I visit I'm pleasantly surprise. The food is great, I love their unique edamame, sushi rolls and drinks (try the elderflower martini!). It's a quiet place, but you can also bring kids. The staff is lovely, and the sushi chefs behind the bar are... More

I consistently have had fresh sushi. The Voodoo Chips are a must have. Everyone I have ever brought to Sakana has said they are the best ever. The Voodoo chips are an addiction and will have you coming back regularly. The Sunshine roll is another favorite. I highly recommend Sakana.

The Sushi app's are very good with plenty of fish to go with the rice. The Chirachi dinner is excellent and a good value considering the amount of fresh fish.

The wait staff is friendly with two bartenders. The Monday night bar tender owns a burlesque troupe which has a huge gay lesbian following. Forget about getting any personal attention at the bar when gay patrons are present. The other bartender can't speak without mentioning her boyfriend. This is definitely not a big city environment but that's not why I... More

They have a nice happy hour with 2 for 1 wine, beer and well mixed drinks until 7. Got to try Voodoo Chips. Appetizer portion is still four servings. All soup and salad choices are very good. Very large selection of sushi. Had special sushi roll tonight that was great. Scallops with sweet potato puree can be a small dinner.... More
