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

I didn't think much of kataba. The menu charges you for certain sauces other Japanese places give for free like the spicy mayonnaise. Also, I thought the food wasn't as good as Mirakuya.And they don't pour Saki in your mouth at the hibachi table! When my husband asked for it he said we don't do that here. What kind of... More

I love going on a Tuesday or Wednesday, I believe the hours of the special are 5-7, for half price. The entire menu isn't half price, but there are many items on a 1/2 price menu. I was able to have a good meal for $19 plus tip. That's pretty inexpensive considering the size plate I got of sushi.

A co-worker introduced me to sushi (and sake) at Katana twenty years ago. While so much has changed in the Greater Wilkes-Barre Restaurant Scene (including a dozen or so new sushi choices popping up within fifteen minutes of downtown), Katana remains the best. Though they've expanded, not much has changed. It could be said that the sushi rolls at Mirakuya... More

This place is one of my all time favorites. Owners are authentic Japanese sushi chefs and really talented. Portions are really large and quality of fish is excellent. Prices are wonderful too. I eat here every chance I get. My favorites: spicy special scallop roll, tuna tataki appetizer with avocado and there gyoza is wonderful. They always have great specials... More

Hands down the best sushi in Wilkes Barre. Suzuki is as good as they come when it comes to sushi. He is very friendly and quick to make your order. Not only is the sushi good but all of the appetizers are pleasing as well.

I always love Katana, either for lunch or dinner. If you can do a hibachi dinner, definitely check it out. Even if you can only pop in for lunch, it's still a great choice. I love getting the bento box lunches. So much good food packed into it! And don't forget to get the ginger dressing on your salad!

This used to be the only Japanese rest in Wilkes Barre area but now there are several. Still the best. Fresh well prepared food served by a helpful and efficient staff. Love to sit at Sushi bar and talk with Suzuki and other chefs always fun.
