Sakana Sushi Bar
Who’d have thought that sushi bars would be two a penny in Warsaw but they are sprouting up at such a rate in the capital that the idea of eating uncooked fish must hit the spot for hungry Varsarvians. With so much choice, there is sure to be a plethora of quality eateries fighting it out to cater for the little bit of Japan in all of us. Sakana was the first and many say, still the best. The good news is that you won’t go far wrong here as this place still has its nose in front. On the downside, the restaurant is a bit small and can get quite crowded, which can lead to a bit of a wait. But there are 3 locations in and around Warsaw so don’t be put off if the Sakana you visit is standing-room only.
Inside is as you might expect from a capital city sushi bar – all kimonos and bamboo with the ubiquitous sushi-laden boats sailing past you very eyes. The idea of choosing your food from moving recepticles might appeal but it can backfire during busy periods as you are confronted with a series of empty boats going by while you wait for your food. This can be a bit of an issue if you are in a hurry or very hungry. When the food does come though, you quickly work out why you have come. The menu is vast and if you are not sure what to have, the friendly staff can advise and recommend. The sushi and Maki sushi are highly recommended. It has been known not uncommon to compare this place with the best sushi bars in Japan. Now if that isn’t a reason to visit, what is?
