“Great Restaurant ”
Review of Sakanaya

Sakanaya
Ranked #7 of 342 Restaurants in Champaign
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 10 - USD 20
Cuisines: Sushi, Asian, Japanese
Description: Sakanaya highly values our customers’ memories made around our dining tables. Sakanaya has been the first restaurant to go to for authentic Japanese food on Green St, Champaign since it's grand opening in November 2013. ​ The name “Sakanaya” translates to “fish market” in Japanese. Like what the name represents, Sakanaya is known to order more fish than practically any other restaurant in Champaign. Starting from the eye-catching tablewares to the restaurant’s modern interior design, every detail of Sakanaya was carefully decided by the owner of the restaurant.

Have been here a few times before and just recently for my birthday. Staff is excellent and super helpful. Lighting and mood is absolutely on point, never feels claustrophobic. Most importantly the food is of great quality and tastes delicious. The Ramen and Sushi are a must get! Great place for a first date, special occasion or night out with friends.

We stayed in Champaign overnight on our way to Nashville. Our youngest son to our surprise said he wanted sushi for his birthday dinner. Through reviews on Trip Advisor we decided on Sakanaya. Needless to say the tripadvisor reviewers were spot on! Service was fast and food was delicious! Highly recommend this place.

The staff are excellent, venue is really cool and the sushi is incredible. They recently added a raspberry sangria which really emphasises the flavours of the sushi. Definitely worth checking out, whether it’s to help introduce you to sushi or as a seasoned, sushi lover.

Small local joint. Great service. Get there early or you will NOT get a seat or come expecting to wait a while. The sushi was excellent and the Willis Tower appetizer is amazing. I will return!

Many people recommended me this place since I arrived in Champaign, and I was not disappointed at all! The food is great and some of the rolls are really innovative. We had a really great time with my friends and the waitress was really nice
