Update | Sushi Sakai
Sushi Sakai recently moved near Gonzaga after five years in the Valley.

After five years in Spokane Valley, Sushi Sakai moved to Clementine Square this spring, trading in an old, run-down building for an airy new space better suited to showcase the fresh, colorful traditional Asian fare.

Sushi is the obvious attraction, and a recent visit featured a remarkably tasty Rainbow Roll that balanced salmon, shrimp, white tuna, ahi tuna and crab. The Salmon Killer Roll is another must-munch for its combo of spicy salmon and asparagus inside and fresh salmon wrapped around the outside.

While it's hard to resist sticking to the rolls, sashimi and nigiri, Sushi Sakai also offers traditional Japanese bento box combos, with specialties like chicken teriyaki, saba (grilled mackerel) or unazu (bbq eel), as well as yakisoba (pan-fried noodles) and udon (thick noodle soup) and a few Korean and Chinese dishes as well.
