Reviews for Sakanaya

This place is like a hidden gem. I love the restaurant so much. Please don't judge when you just come and see the outside of the restaurant. All the food here is so amazing. We have tried lot of food here: beef tongue with whole grain mustard, toro, sea urchin, oyster, bamboo, and a kind of snail,... We were busy with enjoying the food so much that we forgot to take pictures to write a review for it. Also, there are a variety of wine here. Just a small restaurant, but it full review

Saw the menu on yelp and wanted to try every dish. The reviews were all positive so it was worth a try. The place is kinda small, I believe 4 or 5 tables and a small bar. It was not busy when we dined on Thursday night. All the dishes were good and you could tell they were carefully and thoughtfully prepared. Will have to come back and try the kaiseki menu.

My Japanese mom who lives out of state and I went here two years ago. She's visiting in March and shes making me drive from LA to Orangge County to go back. It's extremely inconvenient, but I'm excited to go back and genuinely think it's worth the drive. Great if you want Japanese food that's not just sushi.
