While trying all of the best all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants in Las Vegas, I came across Sakana Sushi. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Sakana, so I was happy to check them out.
Before I made a reservation, I quickly realized that there isn’t much information available about Sakana online. So, I decided to write an article to give other people a basic idea of what to expect when eating here.
Sakana Sushi Prices
At Sakana Sushi, you can either order the all-you-can-eat (AYCE) special or individual menu items. I recommend that you get the AYCE menu since it has over 100 different sushi options. When ordering AYCE, they charge different prices depending on the time of day that you visit.
- Lunch – $24.95 (11:00 am – 3:00 pm)
- All-Day – $28.95 (3:00 pm – close)
The lunch and all-day menu are basically the same, there are just a few extra options on the all-day menu. If you’re going to be ordering your sushi dish by dish instead of AYCE, you can expect to pay $2-$12 per item depending on what you order.
There are also a few all-you-can-eat rules that you need to follow:
- There’s a 90-minute time limit
- No sharing (unless all party members get AYCE)
- Leftovers are charged (so order a little at a time)
- A 16% gratuity is automatically charged to groups of 5 or more
Sakana Sushi Las Vegas Menu
The menu at Sakana Las Vegas is very similar to the one you’ll find at its sister restaurant, Sushi Neko. There are a ton of options, and quality is their top priority.
There were very few menu items that I did not like. The fish is fresh (I especially enjoyed all the salmon dishes). The fish to rice ratio is also very generous. You can be sure that you’re getting a ton of meat. Now, let’s take a look at the actual menu.
There are plenty of appetizers to choose from. There are so many that it’s very easy to get filled up on them before you even order your sushi. Here are some of the appetizers:

Sakana Las Vegas Contact Information & Reservations
When I called Sakana Sushi Las Vegas, I was told that they don’t take reservations. However, I have heard of others being able to make a reservation in the past, so it may be worth a shot. I included Sakana’s phone number and contact information below.
This is one of the most popular AYCE sushi spots in Vegas, so it does get busy. I find the restaurant to be the most packed during the dinner rush, but it’s honestly busy all the time. You can expect a 30 to 90-minute wait on a normal day. The best thing to do is go early and plan on there being a line.
You can find Sakana Sushi 3 blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip (about a 10-minute drive). It’s located in the same plaza as Target. I have seen them post different hours in different spots online. I know that they open at 11 am, but they seem to change their closing hours. Right now, Sakana is open until 12am.

Is the All-You-Can-Eat Sushi at Sakana Las Vegas worth it?
Sakana Sushi is a very popular spot for both tourists and locals. The service is fast, and the Japanese food is amazing. The only thing that they don’t have is AYCE sashimi (Sakana’s sister restaurant, Umami Sushi Las Vegas, does serve sashimi). Overall, the all-you-can-eat sushi at Sakana is more than worth the price. You should definitely stop here next time you’re in town.
