Sushi Zanmai has been delighting patrons for over three decades. With its lively atmosphere, friendly diverse staff, and most memorably its fresh, beautifully-made sushi rolls, sushi and sashimi combos, and mouthwatering tempura, it’s no wonder this Boulder gem is appearing in the Boulder County Gold Awards for its 21st year. “I have truly enjoyed serving the Boulder community for the last 35 years and the most heartwarming thing for me is when we see three generations of customers still enjoying Sushi Zanmai,” says Owner Nao Kanda. “I want everyone to know we are taking your safety very seriously and wish everyone health and happiness during these strange times. Thank you for your constant and continued support! We love you Boulder!”1221 Spruce St., Boulder, 303.440.0733, sushizanmai.com.
