Really lovely restaurant - very relaxed atmosphere. We ordered two starters one of which was in tempura batter - fabulous!! Our sushi rolls were really good too. I had a Pina Colada - which hit the mark also. We shared a gooey chocolate dessert - yum!! It is the best sushi I have had in Panama so far and the... More

Our favorite restaurant in Panama now...We only get to the city once in awhile and head straight for Sake..Don't let it turn you off that it is in a business center, the interior design is gorgeous!! Sake by the bottle too!! Wait staff is very attentive and sushi rolls are uniquely inventive, not your average Volcano roll.... Can also qualify... More

Located not far from the Multi Plaza Luxury Mall, the Japanese Restaurant Sake is quite nice. I have heard many people recommend it (as we are indeed sushi lovers, having sushi about 3 times per week, either home made or restaurant). I was invited to this upend restaurant for a business meeting. Arriving a few minutes early, be aware, when... More

Great interior design for a restaurant, service was fast and very professional, meals presentation Excellent, just one thing about the meals: I ask for the most popular plate of the house, waitress suggested TOKUBAY but the beef sauce was too salty, tempura rice was not fresh. Izumiday was great and the salmon chunks was very delicious. For appetizer please ask... More

This is a decent Sushi place for Panama considering there are no other eligible options in the entire city. If you want a bite of decent Sushi you'll likely find yourself here...but if you come here looking for high quality sushi dishes and creative flavors compared to the best spots back home, you'll find the experience lacking. Atmosphere is decent,... More

Food is really great and service is good too. They're a bit slow overall in the kitchen so watch out if you're there at lunchtime.

My wife and I have been looking for a good sushi restaurant since we moved to Panama City three years ago. She has been enjoying sushi for 40 years, so she especially knows something about it. When our friend Bernardo told us about Sake, we were delighted to hear there was a place where you could get genuine sushi in... More

I really enjoyed the ambient of the restaurant, the sushi was good but i didn't like the sashimis, i had the idea that the fishes were frozen inside. The wild sake was awesome too, and beer always cold, loved that! You can seat outside if you like too.

This Japanese restaurant in Panama City offers sushi and cooked Japanese food with some Panamanian touch, making what probably is fusion. Appetizers are for instance edamame (green beans, which are also known in Panama with a different name), a kind of spring roll with some fruit taste and little ceviches served in a round pastry, making an interesting mix of...
