“Fun little sushi place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

We've eaten here a half dozen times or so since Oishii closed. We really like the casual, fun atmosphere. They have a great selection of rolls, as well as options to build your own. The prices are very inexpensive, the staff extremely friendly. When they first opened it was cash only, but they now accept credit and debit cards. The wait time can be a little long, especially during typical busy times, so if you are in a hurry, you might want to call ahead (or wait to visit when you can relax and enjoy your meal!). They have outside porch seating that is perfect for enjoying nice weather and people watching.

“Love this Sushi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

Sandpoint, Idaho was in desperate need of sushi and Big Tuna has got it going on. They bring a whole new experience to sushi. It is a laid back atmoshpere with fun and friendly staff. Everyone is more then happy to help those first time sushi eaters and families are welcome. Amazing sushi (the best in town!), great ambiance, and eye catching intenior design.

“Superb Sushi at a super price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

We love this little sushi place. It's a totally different concept than most sushi places I've been, but I really like it. The atmosphere is trendy, but not pretentious. The food is awesome! Their sauces are amazing, some of the best I've ever had! I order extra sauce every time because it's worth it!!
