If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon to Banzai Sushi. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of fresh Japanese fare, sushi, and sake Friday–Saturday.
- For $19, you get $40 worth of fresh Japanese fare, sushi, and sake Sunday–Thursday.<p>
Traditional and adventurous concoctions peacefully coexist on Banzai Sushi’s extensive menu, which contains more than 100 sushi rolls. Start the ascent into the sushi-dotted heavens with gyoza ($4.50), a steamy, savory bundle of pan-fried pork and beef bundled neatly in a tender dumpling wrapping like a wedding gift for a chef. The most popular rolls range from the straight forward Rock ‘n’ Roll with salmon and cream cheese ($8) to the decadently flashy Mercedes roll, which has an interior of buttery scallops and deep-fried crab chauffeured by an exterior of shrimp and avocado ($10.25). Additional options include the Tickle Me Thai, yellowtail and a sweet chili sauce outside of spicy salmon, asparagus, and more ($11), and the Shisho Pretty, which boasts shiso, tempura crunchy, and eel sauce along with spicy tuna ($11). A variety of tempura, katsu, and hibachi entrees, such as the chicken and new york steak with stir-fry ($13.75), launch warming aromas into Banzai Sushi’s intimate dining room and across a small cluster of tables and a brimming sushi bar.
Banzai Sushi's chefs award imaginative nicknames to the 100 distinct sushi rolls that earned the restaurant a top-five spot on ABC 7's A-List in 2011. The Nitros roll, baked in a blanket of spicy sauce, awakens taste buds with salty smelt roe and crunchy flecks of tempura, while Drum rolls keeps things fresh with tuna, lemon, and asparagus. For a hot meal, diners can tear into a hibachi-grilled meat or classic teriyaki entree, each available with a choice of salmon, chicken, or New York–style steak.
