Diner Reviews
  • "I had heard good things about this place but was disappointed. With all the other great sushi in Denver, I would probably not go back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The sushi at Banzai is great quality, good prices, and the service was excellent. The only disappointing thing is it's quite small and dated, however I will be back!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Restaurant seems to be sinking to mediocracy in recent times. Not up to past standards."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Wow. Over 100 kinds of sushi rolls and hand rolls to choose from. Beautifully presented and prepared carefully. I can tell the components are fresh and well thought out."

  • "I've gone here for years and always being my friends. .. The last three times the sushi rice had been over cooked, thus making the rice rolls mushy sticky. Also the salmon roe had not been fresh either. I don't know if there are other cooks or why the quality has changed so much. I am hoping this is indeed a temporary experience and bonzai will return to its awesomeness! I will vintners to go there, but will be selective and will not eat rolls until I see an improvement toward the original high quality I know it can be."

  • "We have eaten at the restaurant many times and this was the first where we felt the meal was mediocre. The rice was dry and fish unflavorful. The wait staff person must have been new for he tried hard but did very little. We will go back for this could have just been one of those nights, and past experience would say so. "

  • "The sushi here is always tasty. I like the creativity they have, and large selection of rolls."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "This place had great sushi and it wasn't ridiculously expensive. I would say, in my opinion, second best sushi place in Denver. I would highly recommend you check this place out if you are a sushi lover!"

  • "We had a party of 4 and ordered several different rolls; everything was terrific. Service was okay; a tad slow, but the server was very friendly and gave some great recommendations. My only 'complaint' is that the booths are very small. All 4 of us were constantly bumping elbows. "

  • "Always a favorite with bringing my friends or a dat101 sushi rolls. All my friends enjoy this place been going for 10 years at least. Lunch, dinner, special occasions. Banzi has been given best sushi several years. Consistent food experience. Authentic Japanese. LOVE THEIR RED BEAN ICE CREAM."

  • "First time diner - long-time sushi lover. Banzai is right on the beaten path, but easy to miss unless you know it's there. Terrific service, nice ambiance, great food."

  • "Wonderful relaxing evening, great service. Beautiful food, fresh and tasty. Easy for conversation, not too noisy. Amazingly reasonable even with drinks. Looking forward to going back soon. Reservations a good idea!"

  • "This was our 4th trip to Banzai and we have yet to be disappointed. The service has always been friendly and helpful and the sushi is fresh and tasty. While there are a few better sushi joints in town, most of them are significantly higher in price and not nearly as conveniently located (your mileage, quite literally, may vary). It is a small place, though, and it doesn't have the ambience of a place like Sushi Den. Still, it's become a favorite of ours."

  • "Love Banzai - always can try something new. Fish tastes fresh and always enjoy!"

  • "Banzai is my go-to restaurant for good food, running into friends, celebrations, and last-minute sushi urges."

  • "My wife and I went to BanzI for her birthday dinner recently. As we've come to expect it was a great meal in a friendly energetic restaurant. We sat at the sushi bar per our request and loved interacting with the sushi masters. The fish is always fresh and delicious, my guess is they do enough business so it doesn't have a chance to sit around for too long. Thanks for another great meal!"

  • "Had a great time. Owner and wait staff were super awesome. Food was delicious! Highly fecommen this place"

  • "Their Spicy Tuna Nachos are a yummy way to start your taste adventure here! They have numerous rolls--most created and named by customers. The Sesame Street and Jon San & Jon San are two of our favorites. We always have the Hula roll for "dessert". The owner is very friendly--an interesting conversationalist. They also offer Izakaya specials on Sunday evenings. This restaurant is a real find!"

  • "Suprisingly nice place for an average location away from popular neighorhoods"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Banzai Sushi has always been a great dining experience. Sometimes the servers leave a bit to be desired, but the food quality and presentation never disappoints. With over 100 rolls to choose from, sushi diners need to either have an idea of what they like or be adventurous. Banzai also has a nice entree menu which includes noodle and hibachi style dishes. If you don't arrive promptly when the doors open, I highly recommend reservations to avoid a long wait."

  • "Small restaurant but great food - service sometimes better than others, depending on who waits on you."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This is one of my favorite places to get sushi. This is a little hidden gem on the border of Denver and Aurora. I never would've guessed such great sushi would come from a neighborhood like this. This place rivals Sushi Sasa. They have some of the most fresh fish and wonderful combinations in town. Every time I come here I try a new role and I'm delighted. The Toro is super fresh and melts in your mouth. The prices are reasonable and the staff is super friendly. The owner is wonderful and always tries to make you feel welcome. You won't regret it if you try this sushi."

  • "the sushi is fresh and interesting and the owner and staff are friendly. We have come here for years and now our kids want to come here all the time too."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We thought this restaurant was OK. The food was very good and the price was reasonable, but there just wasn't anything that jumped out at us about Banzai as outstanding. The service is courteous, just a bit slow. It's worth a try, just don't expect anything above the average."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Their menu has over a 100 rolls on it, many that are fried or have cooked components, so it is a win for us as a couple (he hates raw, I love it). I also LOVE their handrolls - so delicious. One other plus is that they will allow reservations for small parties. Ample parking. No waiting for hours for a two top & no hiking around in the cold. The service can be fantastic, or as it was last night & on two or three prior occasions, terrible. Wrong sushi brought out twice, maybe said two words the whole time, ran away from the table before we could order miso, salads, or edamame. No offer for another drink. No offer for dessert. Card swiped at table and tip selected on a machine while said terrible waitress hovers and intimidates you."

  • "My husband and I have been going here for about 8 years, I've never written a review out of laziness..but that is one of my 2014 resolutions. My husband and I rely on reviews for everything so I thought I should pay it forward.Banzai is by far our most favorite sushi destination! The variety of rolls and the familiar faces make this place memorable! The sushi chefs are al so kind and the wait staff is awesome! The owner makes you feel really important and he is genuine.On New Years Eve I asked for a recommendation of flavored saki and the owner suggested lichee, and we got to talking and he asked if I liked st Germaine and I told him I did and he said hold on...and he whipped up an amazing cocktail!A example of awesome service you get here."

  • "Amazing sushi, tons of different rolls and very fresh sashimi. They were very busy when I went and the they seemed short handed so the wait was a bit long after being seated. However I know this isn't the norm and the waiter acknowledged the wait. I will be back again and again!"

  • "I have been going to this restaurant for years. Great food, great staff, great evening."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "The restaurant was hard to find because 1/2 their lights were out on their lit sign and one of our party was looking for it for over 20 minutes. We were greeted and sat, but it took forever for someone to get our order, and it took an incredibly long time to get our food. We had intended to get more food or dessert, but after 20 minutes of trying to get someone's attention after finishing our food we had to give up because we had to get to a show. The food however, once we got it was FABULOUS. I would go there again, but not expect any kind of prompt service"

  • "We have been eating at Banzai for over 20 years. It is consistently great quality. There are over 100 rolls to choose from with a wide variety of ingredients. Don't miss out on this great sushi!"

  • "Terrific place to eat some imaginative sushi as well as old favorites like spicy tuna and unagi. Quiet enough for a small group to enjoy dinner and catch up. Service sometimes slow at lunch, but nicely paced at dinner and our glasses were never empty. I love this place."
