We've eaten at Banzai many, many times, and it's always a great experience. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the food is consistently wonderful!
I have been going to Banzai since it opened over 2 decades ago. I've enjoyed the restaurant throughout the transition from one owner to the next (I believe there have been five) and the food has always been good. Historically the restaurant was one of the best sushi values in the city, a real hidden gem, however with a recent [substantial] increase in prices I am sad to say that Banzai is now as pricey as, and in some cases more than, other sushi restaurants in the city. I feel like the current ownership is pricing the restaurant out of the market. I'm sad about this since I've probably eaten there 200+ times since the 1990s. I'll probably go back but it certainly won't be as often as I would have previously.
I’ve been a Banzai customer for years. They are a great neighborhood gem in SE Denver.
Great sushi, friendly service, nice ambience.
We ended up leaving before our table was ready because it was too busy there for us to get our food in a timely manner
Busy night but great service great food
Always great service and wonderful food. Best veggie tempura in town - fresh vegetables and perfect batter. Creative selection of rolls.
Service was not as good as usual. They forgot my sashimi order which was all I was having. My friends got their order. Very disappointed.
Best sushi I’ve had in Colorado since moving back from California. Very fresh, well presented.
Lunch special is awesome! Service was friendly and helpful
we love banzai sushi, it is close to our house and greatly enjoy the food and kind service. We’ll be back soon!
First time visiting Banzai. Very creative menu. Will be back.
Been coming here for years. Love banzai
Friendly fresh and delicious.
Sweetheart roll is delicious. Agedashi tofu comes with a wonderful broth.
Staff is always helpful and attentive
We tried the calamari appetizer which was the only item I wouldn't order again. It comes with 4 pieces (like onion rings) and the octopus is too chewy.
Been a sushi staple for many years - keep coming back and continue to be impressed with the quality of the sushi and great service. We will definitely continue to dine here!
Always love going here and trying a new roll each time. They have quality sushi and a great menu
For what it was it was decent, but I wouldn't propose to anyone after dinner.
An excellent selection of rolls.
Efficient and friendly service. The sushi was really good and the lunch specials make it an affordable lunch choice. I will for sure be going back.
As always the food and service is great.
Great value for the time and money.
Don't miss it.
We love the fresh sushi. They cut large pieces of fresh fish. The servers are efficient and friendly.
We love Banzai Sushi! It's a welcoming and relaxed sushi restaurant in our neighborhood, with consistently delicious food. We will be back!
Incredible staff , amazing chefs, great environment. 10/10
Super nice staff and food was excellent
Thank you Banzai. You never fail to deliver. We had a very enjoyable evening even with some rather tough peeps who joined us. Your servers were gracious and spot on. Thanks.
This is our favorite sushi place. Can't say enough about their food.
We love Banzai! Hanna down the best sushi place in Denver. Not over priced or ever too crowded. Why wait in line for other mediocre sushi when you can get great ambiance, service and exceptional food here?
The service and food at Banzai Sushi are consistently great, and we love eating there. It's right in our neighborhood, and the restaurant has a good balance between friendly, welcoming and great sushi.
Updated flooring and bar area.
Busy at 6pm on Friday
Just the perfect place after a long week on a cold & snowy evening. A pot of green tea was perfect to warm us up. We chose the New Style Roll to split as an app. Amazing! The scallop and thinly shaved lime on the outside were awesome. I had the tempura entree and my husband chose the tonkatsu. Huge portions! We traded tastes. Everything was tasty and fun. The only drawback, they were slammed. The noise levels got a bit high with every table filled. You’ll definitely want to make reservations before you go.
Banzai has friendly staff and great, fresh sushi menu. I love the small, cozy interior, and the staff is always accommodating. The sushi is fresh and affordable.
Ambiance was very nice and gave an authentic Japanese feel. On the smaller side capacity wise so a bit more intimate. The service was spot on and attentive. The food was awesome! (I judge a place by its seaweed salad and their's was delicious). I can not wait to go back. (Beats the pants off of Hapa and other froufrou sushi joints).
Everyone around us was eating the sushi rolls. Now I know why. Anything else was not very good.
Great restaurant with very fresh sushi and on par with the price of lesser places.
Onon our server was friendly, helpful and attentive.
The food came out in stages so we didn't have to have a table crowded with food at all times.
The ability to use OpenTable for reservations is great as Banzai gets very busy and reserving a booth is nice to do.
The floors and bar were just refinished giving the restaurant a modern and airy atmosphere.
Long time customers and always enjoy the food and experience
Used to be a staple but haven’t been in awhile. Food and service were excellent. Will go again soon
I've been going to Banzai since it was opened and through the 4 owners up to this point. The food and experience and valued have stayed consistently solid and I will continue to go there based on that.
Always a pleasure to go here. Good food. Good staff. Quality sushi. Very pleased.
