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.

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.

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).

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.

Wonderful! I love that this is a smaller, quieter place. But the sushi! DELICIOUS! The fish is SO fresh! We took my dad there for his birthday dinner and all of our sushi came on a boat (woohoo!). He remarked several times about how fresh and delicious it was. Favorite roll? “Tighty Whitey” Haha!

Banzai is a star in the Denver sushi scene. High quality fish and ingredients but priced below the fancy shmancy options that are much louder.

Crispy spicy tuna is a great appetizer as is the oshinko (pickled vegetables) and agedashi tofu.

100 different rolls. There's bound to be many you've never tried.

We'll be back soon I'm sure.

We met some friends who wanted the following: 1) easy to find, 2) good sushi, 3) quiet, so we could converse. Banzai met all those criteria. In addition, they sake was warm and wonderful on a cold, drizzly night. The special Banzai rolls were delicious. The service was outstanding. We'll be going back again and again.

The happy hour/lunch menu is more reasonable. The rolls are okay, but honestly there are too many to choose from and even though many are 8 piece rolls, they're pricey. Three rolls can easily cost you around $36. It wasn't as good this time as the past times I'd been.

Banzai is a neighborhood gem that I've been going to for over 20 years, and since then it's been owned by three different people. The consistent theme over all owners is quality and value. The food is delicious, fairly priced (for sushi) and well prepared. I will continue to frequent Banzai when I'm looking for a great sushi meal. Lovingly referred to as "The House of Rolls", Banzai has more sushi rolls then any other sushi restaurant I have ever been to. There are options to suit everyone's tastes.
