Excellent service, superior quality fresh fish and amazing friendly waiters and waitresses. Geena has always been a wonderful person who knows my family by name and never miss to show the same smile even when she is under stress.

We have been to Sato many many times over the years and have always been pleased. Our last visit, after maybe a year away was very disappointing. Rather like the hotel itself it is old, a little run down and in need of a pick-me up. We had booked the Teppanyaki Bar for a family gathering and expected the usual... More

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!

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
