I came here with my boyfriend tonight for the first time and LOVED it! First of all, the place was very clean, that's always a plus. Right when we walked in someone was there to seat us. Super friendly waiter and was quick with his service. There is a cute little conveyer belt that runs in front of you with... More

So much fun pulling off the fresh delicious sushi selections off the conveyor belt. If there is something you don't see, you can custom order it. My son had a great time calculating the bill based on the color of the plates. The owner and staff are friendly. A great meal was had by all! Can't wait to go back!

Had a great time as always last night at half price sushi. Love this spot and love the conveyor belt. Reminds me of having dinner in San Francisco.

Every chance I get I will go there. Best deal Monday's 1/2 price! What a great deal that is! I am going with my grandson who is home from college and he loves this place as well tomorrow.

I had the all-you-can-eat option on a Wednesday. The sushi tasted good and if you want to try out a few different things, this is worth a try. You can definitely get your money's worth and then some. Service is a bit slow but I didn't mind.

Okay, I knew I shouldn't have expected much. Service was slow, had to flag someone down each time. Waited 10 minutes to get wasabi, sushi was so-so. If your imagining the sushi-go-rounds of Japan you will be quite disappointed.

The weather was rainy, didn't feel like driving to find Sushi. Searched on my phone and found around the block Sakana-Ya. I ordered the Spicy Kani Salad to start as an appetizer. Very tasty, bold and plentiful. My palate was all set for the Sashimi. Salmon, White Tuna, Yellow Tail and Eel. The piece were big, the portions huge but... More

Delicious sushi! My daughter and her friend and I went here today to have sushi and enjoy Armory Square. I wish we could have enjoyed everything outside but we had our fill and then headed for the outdoors. The food was great, especially the spider rolls!! Everything was wonderful. Great Sushi!

The Fayetteville location is a different place now, but my boyfriend and I ate at Namu on Walton Street Saturday night and it was delish! Great menu, sushi was fresh and tasty. Sakana-Ya is owned by the same people and is right next door, a more casual experience with the convener belt and all. We will absolutely go back here.
