I've been going to Sato every week for more than 20 years. The best Japanese restaurant in Bahrain and prices are reasonable. It's a must try!

Sato is one of the better Japanese restaurants in Bahrain. Traditional Japanese food, and if you are into sashimi the portions are very healthy. Fish is very fresh. Service is also very good and 'Andy ' the front of house is very friendly and helpful. Food is a bit pricey but it is worth it.

One of the best meals anywhere in the Teppanyaki Restaurants, and the hot sake was good too. Only negative was that the chef was less flamboyant than my previous experience of Teppanyaki restaurants.

Now, They are using a new varieties of fresh seafoods from Japan.... More
