Yellowtail Jalapeno was a lovely appetizer, and the Aji was fabulous. Wish there was a little more light in the dining room though.

Sakana serves up amazing sushi
Sakana serves up amazing sushi but also has a full dinner menu with amazing dishes like the miso cod. They make the best fried rice ever! It's great to have fantastic sushi so close to home in Wayzata.

Sakana's "Forbidden Love"
We love this place. Not too big, not too small. Plenty of parking. Nice ambiance. Great prices and wonderful service. Reservations recommended on Friday and Saturday nights. My favorite entree is their "Forbidden Love" but they are excellent.

Fun and Delicious!
Our first time at Sakana and we were impressed with the variety and flavors of the sushi we ordered. We also enjoyed the Saki flights - delicious! We will return the next time we're in the area.

Terrific sushi. Ate at another sushi place the next day and there was no comparison. Sakana is the best.

High quality food, range of sakes!
Fabulous sashimi! Ordered the chef's choice sushi & sashimi platter and a couple of a la carte items- truly appetizing & gorgeous presentation, excellent flavors/textures for the fish, very high quality. Even the nori wrappers used had a wonderful roasted flavor & perfect texture. Squid salad had lots of squid in a delightful marinade, and fresh spring greens. Wide and diverse range of sake offerings - very impressive to have so many available by the glass or carafe. Our server Amanda was perfect: knowledgable, playful in spirit, patient, good at explaining things, and able to make great recommendations- all while the house was packed! A thoroughly enjoyable dinner, bravo. Beats other sushi restaurants in the surrounding area, hands down.

Sakana - neighborhood gem
I love this place. The food is excellent. The service is excellent. It is small but centrally located. They are always friendly and at the end if the night, the is reasonable.

Once again the food and sake were outstanding. Baby squid salad and edamame were both prepared perectly, yum! The sashimi entree had five different types of fish, beautifully arranged -- all were exquisite and reflected a range of flavors and textures. Our server was very helpful and just the perfect amount of attentive. The range of sake choices, available by glass or carafe was awesome. A wonderful little spot in downtown Wayzata.

Grea food is always the key
We have dinner at Sakana once a week, which as foodies who like to eat around, is a big deal. We've surprised ourselves with this weekly loyalty, and have decided while we like the service, atmosphere etc, we come back back because everything on the menu is good and good every time.

Sunshine & Sushi!
Had an early dinner on the outside patio on one of the first great weather days of Minnesota Spring! (Sad to say it was May 5!) RE: noise level: Because it was late afternoon the restaurant had very few people and it was a very calm, comfortable atmosphere. About 1/2 hour before we left a group with kids came in and it "livened up" the place a bit, but not overwhelmingly.
Server was very welcoming and friendly but not patronizing, very helpful in his information about both the bar menu and food menu. He was truly part of the wonderful experience! Calamari appetizer and White Tiger Roll was phenomenal! Great Mojito as well! [We went for multi-cultural on that one! :-) J/K]

Great Specialty Rolls ...
Three of us for dinner on Friday night. Tasty cocktails from a nice selection, yummy rolls well executed. YumYum, Godzilla and BMW rolls particularly tasty. Competitively priced, nice atmosphere, we'll be back!

This neighborhood restaurant has the best sashimi in the Twin Cities. All the fish is so fresh, you have no fears in enjoying it. Also, their Japanese lunches and dinners are wonderful, and also very reasonable. I recommend this restaurant highly.

The food was excellent but pricey. If one goes, it is probably best to go during Happy Hour to take advantage of some discounting.
Presentation was fine, service somewhat loose but adequate. We will return.

Amazing sushi and service!
We had a wonderful dinner at Sakana with friends. We sat outside and enjoyed being by the lake. The service was outstanding! The sushi was some of the best we've had in the Twin Cities and the presentation was beautiful. We will definitely be back!

We have eaten here several times. Food is excellent. I never feel uncomfortable after dinner because portions are not overwhelming.

One of our favorites!
We love Sakana! From the moment you walk in, you are treated with kindness and a superb level of service! The food is amazing, with a wide range of unique options. We can come for a date night, girls night or with our kids! We love it!

Always fantastic food.
My wife and I took our kids to Sakana for my sons 9th birthday dinner. Our kids always love the Japanese sodas and the chopstick cheaters that they give the kids. Both my son and my 6 year old daughter attacked the spring rolls and edamame as usual, but the big surprise was my sons interest in the Spicy Tuna Roll and the super secret Volcano Roll. All of our appetizers and entrees were flavored to perfection and the service was perfect. Sakana has been and will continue to be a perfect go to restaurant where we all get what we want and thoroughly enjoy ourselves.

We eat at Sakana often since it is close to our home. The food really is exceptional and "Nobu-like" quality. This time we took our 3 year old grandaughter and that went well too. This is an intimate-size restaurant so good idea to make a reservation.
