“Authentic Japanese. Food served by the nicest people anywhere. Plus they serve sushi”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 via mobile

Name has changed and new owners. New name is Golden Bay and it now features sushi (about 60 items) but also serves Tempura, teriyaki, hibachi, and noodle dishes (including udon). The place is small but the atmosphere is great with classical music playing in the background. Truly an awesome dinning experience in a strip center. The staff means to please and are awesome. You will not be diss appointed. Best Japanese food in Wichita. They also offer carry out and you need to try it.

“Great Family Style Japanese Cafe”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Best japanese food in Wichita. Real authenic cuisine. Family run and much better than chain hibachi tables with swordsmen in tall hats throwing knives and shrimp in the air. UNFORTUNATELY THE PLACE HAS GONE OUT OF BUSINESS. iF YOU NEVER ATE THERE YOU MISSED A REAL TREAT.

“Awesome place! Quaint.”
Reviewed 17 August 2006

Mama Sans was actually owned and operated by Mama herself until just this year (or so I'm told). The new managment actually worked with her and all they've done is expand the menu to include sushi - which is excellent.

Most of the food on the menu is ordered by number. They also have noodle and rice dishes you can order. The Tempura is EXCELLENT, as is her soup - can't think of the name right off hand. We usually get the Sampler appetizer dish that comes with tempura, teryaki chicken, wontons and a couple of spring rolls. Then the #16 or #17 which has sesame chicken, teryaki chicken and beef skewers, with sticky rice and more tempura, usually a fruit slice and that may be it. Recently we've tried their shirmp tempura rolls and spider rolls off of the sushi menu. Both of these are awesome, but we prefer the shrim tempura rolls. The majority of the items on the menu are not sushi, so you should give it a shot if you like chinese/japanese type cuisine.

ENJOY!
