Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electric sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks at Sakimura. Choose from the Simsbury or Meriden location.
Sakimura's talented chefs cull the nuanced flavors of authentic Japanese cooking from fresh, seasonal ingredients at their two sophisticated, family-friendly locations. Simsbury’s menu features seafood, vegetable, and protein goodies ripe for the sizzling surface of a smokeless hibachi table. Exposed brownstone and a glimmering sushi bar lull diners into a trance-like state of consumption, while the New York–style Meriden location boasts a similarly delicious menu of sushi rolls, tempura, and koi companionship in a high-energy atmosphere.
Nine Yelpers give the Simsbury location of Sakimura an average of 3.5 stars, and 10 give the Meriden location an average of 4.5 stars. Three Google Mappers give the Simsbury location a perfect five-star average.

The menus at Sakimura's two locations change regularly in order to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients and the chefs’ newest culinary muses. The Simsbury location is known to intermingle traditional Japanese flavors with contemporary flourishes, with specials taking forms such as foie gras with sweet miso sauce. Both locales’ sushi chefs also invent their own creative rolls, such as a deep-fried Godzilla roll and an Out of Control roll filled with shrimp tempura and topped with seared pepper tuna.
Diners seeking a hot dinner can gather around hibachi grills and watch as chefs sear their choice of shrimp, chicken, scallops, filet mignon, or any number of other gourmet ingredients. The hibachi rooms' smokeless grills and modern yet warm decor combine to create a pleasant dining experience.
