Sakana Sushi Bar at 3949 S. Maryland Pkwy. was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Thursday, March 24, that uncovered an imminent health hazard.

SNHD inspectors found no potable water during the inspection, and that called for the immediate shutter of the restaurant. They also discovered 29 other demerits, including not hot and cold running water, the staff not properly washing their hands, food unprotected from potential contamination and more.

Since 2014, the restaurant has earned two A grades and one B grade.

Sakana opened in 2014 with the motto, "our family works hard for your smile." The restaurant that took over the former Kabuki Dining Bar added TVs displaying Japanese music videos and a different style of menu with all-you-can-eat at lunch or dinner starting at $20.95, with all-you-can-drink for an additional $3.

The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
