Love it

We can't stop going to this place, I have reviewed this restaurant serval times and they still serve the best sushi and maki in the island. We love their food so much. Can't wait to visit them soon. But Japanese in the Island. Not to mention their tepinyaki is amazing

I went for fathers day with my family and we all enjoyed the experience. Service is outstanding and food was delicious. I've been to many Teppanyaki before, but this one was the best in taste. Don't expect much of the "show" but who cares; the food was great and service outstanding!

Been there with a friend. Although, the time we arrived was just before closing, the staff were helpful and we had no complain. The food is excellent, as well.

Sato Japanese restaurant has consistently been my favorite Japanese restaurant on the island. Recently they have had new additions to the team - head chef naotaka from Japan and his Sous Chef Guzman. The sushi bar is definitely the best I've seen in Bahrain with a wide variety of fresh fish including O-toro and Chutoro, hamachi, and hamour. Make sure... More

the staff really know what they're doing, and are highly educated about the cuisine. Also, they have the freshest, largest selection of fresh uncut options (unlike other popular restaurants in bahrain). I've been eating here since the 90s and am so glad to have a go to spot for healthy food 👍

I have been a regular customer in Sato (original name of the restaurant was Furusato) for many years .. In the 80s and 90s .. you didn't have much options in Bahrain to have sushi .. I have to admit that sato was very popular among sushi lovers at that time .. popular in terms of quality and taste ...... More
