Perfectly composed fresh crab and asparagus roll. Soft Shell Crab Appetizer. Filet Mignon with Mushrooms and Brown Rice. It must be Katana! The truth is that Japanese Food is best prepared by those who understand it the best. Katana!

I have been here for different celebrations. The service has always been wonderful, the food is delicious, my recommendation would be the shrimp made on the grill, succulent! The cook makes every effort to entertain the party. If you are in the Wilkes-Barre are this is a must place to eat.

Katana is a great sushi place. I love their Wednesday half priced sushi in house from 5:30-7pm. by far the freshest sushi. Try the oysters in the ponzu sauce OMG delish

I've been to all the Japanese restaurants in the area and I believe this one is the best one. I can always count on consistently great service along with well-prepared food with all the usual hi-jinks that come with dining in a Japanese restaurant. We usually do hibachi table and can add customized preparation method of our choice of meat/seafood... More

Great half price sushi night! And they don't raise the prices, just have a more limited menu. It's a great place

I think usually the people who cook the most authentic ethnic food are usually a member of that ethnic group. Sazuki and Ai are Japanese immigrants who built a great Japanese restaurant in Pizza country. They have fresh sushi and excellent authentic Japanese dishes. I am sorry to hear they are retiring. I hope the restaurant goes to someone half... More

This is a reliable mainstay in Wilkes-Barre. The service is consistently excellent and the food fresh and tasty. Reservations are suggested for the Hibachi seating as it is very popular, especially on weekends. The sushi bar is pretty good. The chefs take pride in their art and are happy to help you with a menu selection. Seating on the sushi... More

Katana is OK - IMO. Have been here numerous times over the years because fellow sushi lovers say they like this place the best. I think it is about as good as Miso and that Mirakuya is by far the best and consistently so. Just one person opinion..to each his/her own.

A friends and I visited and had a great time. The sushi is very good. Go on Tuesdays or Wednesdays when they have half-price specials. We got two big plates of sushi for $50 plus a $10 tip. Two of my favorite things are sushi and saving money so when you combine them there's potential for awesomeness and katana does... More

Katana has been in Wilkes-Barre for many decades, because it's a downtown favorite. Other Hibachis have opened around Wilkes-Barre, but this place continues to be my favorite. No, they won't fill your mouth with sake, but you'll get the best sushi and best-tasting hibachi meals in the area. They even have half price sushi nights on Wednesdays. Make a reservation,... More
