About the restaurant
Sakana is consistently rated as Mooloolaba's No.1 Sushi Restaurant. Unassuming and tucked discreetly into the side of its sister restaurant Fish on Parkyn, Sakana is a local sushi institution for a reason. Super fresh and straight from the dock just behind us, we artfully prepare the most pristine ingredients for your enjoyment. We offer you an authentic Japanese Cuisine experience, at affordable prices in a relaxed and casual setting.
