Sakana Japanese


Pint-sized Sakana Japanese Dining Bar is quite simply one of the north side’s treasures - an ideal spot to drop in for a casual inexpensive Japanese feed. Subsequently the handful of tables in its gleaming pine clad interior and outdoors by the car park fill fast so booking is recommended.

Part of its appeal are the great value dishes which are fresh and of high quality as well as their mix and match nature. Sashimi can be ordered as a bargain side dish and generous teriyaki mains include rice salad and miso. And to accompany there's Japanese beer on tap.

The specialty however, which constitutes a sizable part of the modest menu are the ‘special rolls’ – an elongated sushi roll cut into sections that itself could constitute a main – with a choice of traditional fillings.

By far the most expensive items are the generously stuffed bento boxes which can come close to feeding two. Also look out for all kinds of unbeatable weekday special meal deals.
