Loved this place, went twice over a long weekend. Firstly as part of a group, with a set menu, then later for an early dinner. The quality of the fresh produce was exceptional. Everything was really good. They bent over backwards for my 3 year old in the group lunch and she really enjoyed the small maki, edamame and the... More

Wandering up Argyle St on a Saturday night I was not expecting to stumble across a restaurant which a) had a table available and b) had decent food -- and yet, I found that here at Sake! From the moment you step in to Sake, you are transported to another world. The back wall showcases an array of Japan's finest... More

A great restaurant in the Rocks. The food was fabulous and plenty to chose from. Might be a good idea to make reservations as the place fills up pretty quickly on the weekends.

Visited here one Saturday night for an anniversary celebration. Excellent service from start to finish. The food was extremely good, well presented and there was nothing left on our plates! The selection of Sake was endless, unfortunately no sparkling Sake in stock but considering the alternate selection it doesn't warrant a loss of a point in this review. Great location... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Sydney serving superb Japanese food with quality product and wonderful wine list. Staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Presentation of food is beautiful. I highly recommend Sake in the Rocks.

We were here for a special occasion and had advised when making our reservation. They did not disappoint, the birthday boy (us too) were looked after from the moment we stepped in the door. After our pre-dinner drinks, we were shown to our table and we were allocated the most delightful waiter!!! He knew his stuff and upon request, gave... More

Have dined here once each for lunch and dinner. Food is incredible, not cheap, and to leave feeling satisfied you'll maybe spend more than originally intended. Service was outstanding. If you're holidaying in Sydney and want a special meal close to the Rocks and Circular Quay - this is a top choice.

By the time we got to Sake, I had heard so much from so many people about how good it was, I think it was a bit over-hyped in my mind. Yes, it was good...but because we had experienced a mind-blowingly good modern Japanese meal at Morimoto in NYC earlier this year, I was judging it against that...and I was... More
