Katana Restaurant

920 71st St. Miami Beach, FL 33141 | Mid/North Beach | 305-864-0037

Location Description:

Instead of what Western tourists in Japan call a sushi-go-round, where sashimi and rolls ride a conveyor belt that winds by every seat in the restaurant, Katana opts to do à la carte with boats. Although the menu varies daily, typical rolls that float downstream and into your hands include eel, rainbow, and an assortment of tempura rolls. Raw selections include tuna, white fish, and salmon sashimi. And although this restaurant is always a lot of fun, try not to get distracted by the aggressive diners waiting for your seat (it's first come, first served), Top 40 jams, or the sushi chef's unnaturally tall Rasta-style hat. You must keep track of the colors of the plates you snatch. Each hue represents a different price, which is displayed on the restaurant's east wall. The cheapest one, which is green, costs $1.50. The most expensive, the black or gold plate, is $3.50.
