Hard to know when one tries a sushi restaurant for the first time, what it is going to be like. But now, after multiple times here I have to say that this is one of the better sushi and Asian food restaurants in the Twin Cities. For fun and larger gatherings, you will love what they do with big platters!

If your looking for something different on a Friday night, try this local spot! Although Friday, we were met with a smile and our party of five was seated quickly. The menu provided options for the sushi lovers and those new to this type of food. The appetizers, sushi and entrees were well priced and the portion size was exceptional.... More

I've been enjoying sushi in my hometown of Saint Paul for decades and have tried them all many times. Several are very good but I don't go to them much anymore. For me it's Sakana almost every time. There's no point in going anywhere else for whatever Japanese food I have a taste for tonight. None other is as consistently... More

Love the portion that they have for the price. And there's a lot things in there to try out. Lunch box (bento) and apps are well prepared. Although some rolls are pricy, it is guarantee to fill you up.

First visit to Sakana Sushi and Asian Bistro in St. Paul. Dined in for lunch; is was very good. The Bento Box "B" was an excellent choice because it had shrimp and veggies tempura, along with spring rolls and a California roll; the food was delicious. Others all had different choices of food items and all agreed that the food... More

Ate at Sakana for the first time last evening. Large menu selection. Food was very good and service was also quite good even though they were very busy. There is something on the menu for everyone and the prices are not outlandish. Plating was done very nicely. We will return.

Always fresh and artfully presented. They change the presentation a little every time which is fun. The staff is very friendly and accomodating

If you're looking for great sushi/sashimi, good drinks and don't mind being treated like cattle in a corral you will love Sakana! The food is actually very, very good! The drinks (only saki, beer and wine) are good, the service (it's busy and you will feel like a cattle being herded through the pen) is ok. Go for the food... More

I had the Sakana Sushi and wife had the Sushi & Sashimi combo. They were both very good. Fresh and well plated. We will return!

I would give Zero stars if I could. I loved this restaurant. I looked back and we've spent a ton of money with them. The sushi is good and the ingredients are fresh. I am Celiac and they have contaminated my last three orders. The first delivery was comped, thanks after I got sick and after arguing with management. The... More
