The sushi is fresh and plentiful. The staff is efficient and friendly. They have nice offerings of drinks and food for happy hour at very reasonable prices.

I stopped in after a conference in the area, based on a local colleagues recommendation. This place is spot on! I sampled a plate of nigiri after a sunomono salad. As you can see from the picture, the cuts of nigiri were fantastic. Great service and a friendly atmosphere made it a great dinner.

This is the.Best sushi in town. The portions are humongous. I never seem sashimi cut this thick. The spider roll was amazing. I think I have.to come back before I leave town just to.try other speciality sushi.

While vacationing in Scottsdale we were looking for a good sushi restaurant. We went to Sakana and had a great meal. We were seated at the last table and our waitress, Suzie, was awesome. She has a great personality. We started off with a spring roll and salads. The salads were huge. The various rolls we ordered were very good... More

Sakana is our local favorite whenever we come to Phoenix/ Scottsdale. The location is somewhat a hole in wall and can be easily missed. After trying out several sushi restaurants in Tucson and Phoenix, we like this Sakana on Hayden the best. The ambiance is soothing, the space is kept clean, although the parking space can be limited. What we... More

When I last visited this restaurant, I had a terrible experience with the waitstaff. I was asked to go to dinner here again and my experience this time compels me to write an updated review. In short, everything was FANTASTIC. The service was great (not too fast or slow), we were helped by friendly people and the food was excellent.... More

We enjoy eating here every time we visit Scottsdale. The sushi is fresh, the rolls are very good and it is more like a restaurant than a bar like Sushi Brokers. You can actually talk to someone there. Monday through Friday there's a good happy hour as well.

Ordered spicy tuna, spicy yellow tail and baked scallop rolls. They were all a large portion cut roll but just no taste. The quality of the fish is mediocre. Saw nothing of quality fish in the case. Fine place to go if you are hungry and just want to fill the belly. Service was fine.

The chicken matsuri is fantastic! We've been probably a half dozen times now and Sakana never disappoints. Hope to make it back again before we go!

Great Japanese restaurant and sushi bar hidden in a strip mall in Scottsdale. Excellent food, great specials, extremely reasonably priced. This is one of the best sushi bars in town.
