The 4 Best Sushi Spots in Danville

It’s winter, and I don’t know about you, but we at DS sure don’t feel like going out in the cold. However, the winter is the perfect time for eating at a restaurant. Skip the monotony of making meals at home every day, and treat yourself to a nice meal outside – albeit indoors, where it’s nice and warm.

This time, we thought we’d make a list of the best sushi restaurants in Danville. So here you go – here are the top 4!

  1. Sushi Bar Hana

Simple and unimposing, The Sushi Bar Hana is a classic favorite. It’s open Monday to Friday between 11:30 AM and 9:30 PM, save for a break from 2-5 PM. They have unique, delicious food, a lovely atmosphere, and very courteous staff. Whether you’re out with your family or with friends for a girls’ night out, the Sushi Bar Hana is a great stop. Mind, though, that there may be a small queue during peak times (think weekend nights) because it’s a smallish restaurant. If you’re in a hurry you can pop over to the next one, which is…

  1. Kibo Sushi

The restaurant is situated at 125 Hartz Avenue and has a diverse menu with very reasonably priced items. If you’re looking for deals you can check out their Yelp page, as they often give out free stuff when you check-in. The current offer is 1 free Crispy Gyoza. We highly recommend their shrimp lollipop!👍

The place has dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian options, and is family-friendly. So basically, it’s great for just about everyone. It has plenty of parking space, serves some alcohol, and the staff is friendly and understanding.

  1. Akira Bistro

The Akira Bistro is on San Ramon Valley Bvd, and some of the things they can do with noodles will blow your mind. That wasn’t an innuendo – their noodle dishes are just really, really good. Their prices are super reasonable, they’re open at roughly the same times as Sushi Bar Hana, and they hit the sweet spot between ‘incredible’ and ‘repeat-worthy’, so you’ll like it there and want to keep returning. They have their full menu up on their website, so if you want to plan in advance, go right ahead.

  1. Blue Gingko Blackhawk

Family-friendly and spacious situated in Blackhawk Plaza, this one’s another favorite. They have a sushi bar at the restaurant, and their sushi is practically unbeatable. The Blue Gingko has a wonderful ambiance, with perfect lights and comfortable seating arrangements. The food’s not only Instagram worthy, but a treat on the taste buds. The crab balls, in particular, are to die for!

Compared to the others on this list the Blue Gingko may be a bit expensive, but the food and ambiance more than make up for it. The staff there is courteous and professional.

Most sushi places are family-friendly, so you can all head out sometime and give them a try. And if any of these places are offering great deals, we’ll be sure to let you know!
