We have been to Sake a few times now for family get togethers and the food and service is always fantastic. We have a few gluten and dairy intolerant family members and there are always plenty of options.

Just had dinner at Sake at the recommendation of my hotel's Concierge. A seat at the sushi counter was reserved for me. It was very crowded, noisy and by the youth of the crowd, obviously quite a 'cool' place to hang. Service started on the wrong foot - I ordered sparkling water; the waitress came with a large bottle and... More

A great dinner had recently at Sake. The best sushi I have had in Sydney with extremely attentive service and a cracking wine list.

We (a couple in our 50s) attended on a Sunday afternoon for a long lunch. We pre-booked. Upon arrival we walked past an empty bar with no barman on duty (the restaurant therefore missed an opportunity to mix us a pair of cocktails) then on to the large and impressively decorated Japan-mod themed restaurant room. Our welcome at the restaurant... More

Amazing food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Price was as you'd expect for a venue like this, pretty expensive. It was a work lunch and everything we ordered from the menu was just beautiful

Four of us went to Sake Restaurant for lunch today. It was a bday celebration for myself and my brother. Food were fresh and delicious. Especially the wagyu beef skewer! The front door lady and the guy who served us were nice. However, there was a Caucasian waitress with short, dark hair (I wish they wore a name tag) was... More

We came to Sake for a team congratulatory work lunch in November, and I was very excited at the prospect of coming here as I haven't really had much Japanese food. My boyfriend is allergic to seafood, so having sushi isn't normally at the top of our food lists, but as seafood is one of my favourites and I haven't... More

I was lucky enough to get a seat at the counter looking over the chefs on a busy Sunday night after only a 10 minute wait. It's great if you are on your own as there is so much going on and to watch the fabulous chefs at working their art is a treat. The dishes are magnificent, all carefully... More

Wow, Anyone wanting to try the full on Japanese food experience need to go here. The staff are fantastic, and very welcoming. Go for the full banquet you will not be disappointed. Go with a large group, and pre book the private room (not to private so you feel excluded from everything else) if you go for the sake bombs,... More
