I never would have known about this place except for Open Table. A hidden gem in an unlikely locale, but wonderful. 40 years, our waitress had 27 years there. It is the kind of place that you enjoy and you feel good to have given them your business. The variety of the menu is incredible and the wine prices are amazing.

Always consistent and reasonably priced. Banzai is our go-to sushi restaurant when we’re looking for a simple sushi experience. What it lacks in ambience it makes up for with variety and options.

It seems to have gone downhill. My family and I have been going here for years and the past few times we've been in (over the past year) we haven't been all that impressed. Not that it's terrible but it used to be great. Now it just seems to be ok. Not sure what happened. There are other Sushi restaurants that we now prefer.

This place has been open since for ever. (1st place I had sushi back in the 80’s). Some of the staff is the same from way back in the day. The rolls are fun and the staff is awesome. The fish is decent and spot on for the price point. Good sushi without the BS/scene/ prenticiousness of the Den etc. If it wasn’t a bit of a drive for us we’d be there more often.

We've been coming here for over a decade. Even after moving over half-an-hour away, I still bring out-of-town guests here when they visit (i.e. it's worth the drive). The volcano roll is a great appetizer. Try the Roll-R Coast-R (#10 sushi roll) and the Katsudon (on the lunch menu but they'll serve it to you for dinner if you ask). Staff is always friendly. Miso soup is authentic. Atmosphere is quiet on weeknights. Can get a bit loud on weekends when it is full and has a long wait (i.e. make reservations!).

The service is outstanding and the sushi is amazing! It was very fresh with great flavor. The Chernobyl roll is very spicy. After you eat it, you'll feel like you ate the sun. Don't let that deter you because it's totally worth it!

The service was very good. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. We were there on a Sunday evening and we were one of 3 tables that had diners. There is an abundance of hand rolls, and we tried 4 of them. We like tuna, so we focused on that. All the rolls we had included spicy tuna, of which there was an overabundance. What there was not an overabundance of was the tuna itself. Had to look hard to see slivers of it. The rolls varied basically by the fillers and sauce on top. the tuna nachos were ok. too much spicy tuna that was more of a paste. the crab wontons were great. Would probably not go back, although if you want basic sushi rolls, you could eat a lot of not a lot of money here.

Overall we had a good time. But for non-sushi menu items, it was a 50/50 split of food being flavorful or extremely bland.
