Sakana Sushi Bar & Cuisine (30 August, 2012)

Sakana was a sushi bar along Hutton Lane, George Town, Penang. It has now been taken over by a different management, and is now called To Kai Ya. Sakana opened in August, 2012, the first of the Sakana chain of sushi bars in Penang. The restaurant occupies the corner shoplot between Hutton Lane and Penang Road beside Cathay Cinema (today an outlet of Mydin). The restaurant offers a wide variety of Japanese dishes including the sushi, sashimi, maki, grilled dishes, handrolls and others.

Sakana Sushi has an open kitchen style bar. Patrons can view the entire kitchen operation and see how their food is prepared. The restaurant now has a new management, bringing with it a new menu and a new chef.

Although some people do not take raw food, Japanese food is almost not Japanese food without the raw items. Many who braved themselves to try it find that the raw slices of tuna, salmon, all freshly imported, are indeed absolutely delicious.
