From Furusato to Sato ... a classic place for sushi in Bahrain

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... read more

We had the table set B. My husband had the sashimi & I had the tempura. Our server/cook was considerate, he double checked are order before cooking. The fish and steak were delicious. The shrimp was a little fishy but everything else made up for it. Would definitely recommend it.

I've been in Sato for sometime before, and this is the first time for my husband, and this night nothing big change happen. They maintain the quality of food as well as the quality of service. From the staff to supervisor and manager, they did a great job by asking each table about the food and if we need something... More

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.
