Our lunch choice of a mixed platter of sushi/sashimi was exquisite. We sat at the kitchen bar for a nice lunch and were not disappointed. The service is a standout.

We enjoyed one of their private rooms as we were celebrating a birthday. You can request these at the time of booking however they won't guarantee you'll get one. The service was a little 'cool', perhaps not as friendly as my previous visits. With a...More

The food at Sake is very fresh and tasty. Pity each plate didn't have a bit more on it. The atmosphere is really nice but a little dark at the table we were at.

This restaurant was recommended to us and whilst the service was great the food was disappointing and the wine overpriced. The main courses we selected were lacking in flavour. The sashimi was tasty and fresh however overpriced.

Great bar, best shushi! The Saki menu helps you order the correct Saki for each dish, but I have my favourites and stick to them, if you are unsure, they will bring you a tasting glass.

Nice space in good location, nice food and good service. A little pricey. Still worth a visit if you like Japanese food.

Couldn't fault it, service was great and food even better. Popcorn shrimp amazing. Great views and location. We got the set menu and it was reasonably priced. They are also kid friendly, unlike expensive, pretentious Japanese restaurant Wasabi (check out their restaurant policies!). Will be...More
