Banzai offers the UT Japanese junkies their fix, right next to the old Quack's. Very reasonable prices for a somewhat limited menu, but all the bases are covered, including sushi. Lunch specials include sushi and main dish items for around five bucks, or the Bento Box combos for $7. All the noodles are represented, along with katsus, tempuras, and teriyakis. Be sure to try the unagi (sweet glazed eel) in sushi form, or over rice ($4.99) -- it's a delight. Nice vegan selections.
