Prior to this visit to Sake I had limited experience with good quality Japanese cuisine. My wife a lover of this type of food was eager to go where I was expecting to have to make a toastie when I got home. But no the food was fresh original and delicious. We tried a number of different items each were... More

I decided to take my bridesmaids out for a nice dinner and I wasn't disappointed. Our waiters were very professional, the service was impeccable. It is quite rare in Brisbane (despite the friendly staff) to experience a refined service.

Arrived 20 mins early. Sat at bar and waited 20 minutes for drinks. Had to then wait 10 mins to be seated as they had "lost" our e-reservation...lucky I had a copy in my phone to show them the details! On a positive note, the food was excellent (best meal we've had there) and it came out in a timely... More

Fabulous Japanese restaurant in the Eagle Street pier area of Brisbane. No view, but window table was quite fun for people watching. Unobtrusive service. Highlights included the sashimi (highly recommend the kingfish, Snapper, tuna and salmon belly), wagyu tataki, ginger sake lamb chops, ocean barramundi and whisky ice cream. Cocktails weren't bad either. Would definitely go again.

Pricey but worth the money if you like good Japanese food. Excellent service and menu selection. Well worth the effort if you like a wide selection of options on Japenese fusion.

It is always great to suggest a restaurant to business associates and know that they will be impressed. I have eaten at Sake Brisbane many times and it never disappoints. The service is efficient and friendly and the food is first class. They have changed things up a little recently but it is only in the way they present the... More

I went to Sake for a work dinner with mild expectations as I don't really eat Japanese food. However I have to say this was some of the best food I have ever eaten and the overall experience was fantastic. Drinks were a little expensive however the overall price seemed fair for such a great meal and experience. Highly recommend... More
