This is one of the most tasty Japanese restaurants I have tried, plus the chef makes amazing Pisco sour cocktails. If you are in Panama, do not miss this exquisite Japanese restaurant.

Elegant restaurant located in an upscale area of Panama City. Chef Masaki does a beautiful job blending traditional Asian flavors with a taste of Panama. Raul keeps the menu fresh and the restaurant pristine. Beautiful seafood.

We left the restaurant saying this was some of the best sushi we had ever eaten. We made reservations because it was Saturday night, but the restaurant never filled up. If the restaurant calls you a taxi, it will almost be double than most taxis.

I came here for my fix of Japanese food, not being so inspired by the selection of restaurants in the Multiplaza mall. At lunch on a Tuesday this place was full: I got a seat at the counter. Opted for a ceviche and a crab roll and a small bottle of sparkling water. Service speed was acceptable considering that the... More

Needed to find a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel near the Multiplaza. We checked out a few places at the mall, but they didn't seem quite right for our group. Found this place across the street at Torre de las Americas building. Winner! Friendly, helpful wait staff did their best to explain about Peru-Thai fusion dishes, despite language... More

I was invited for a family gathering. First time in Sake. Ambiance is great. We had several different type of rolls, which were very good, not the best that I've had, but still good. The best part was the main dish. I had a grilled seabass (corvina) reduction sauce was very tasty, and it had several very thin slice of... More

We walked over to Sake from Multiplaza trying to get away from the fast food atmosphere at the mall. The host said that she could only accommodate us outside so we had no choice. The service was slow, and the food was pretty average. Nothing really impressed us and we all agreed that there was nothing that enticed us to... More

Most of the Nigiris and the rolls I had were not bad at all. By Panamanian standards this restaurant definitely serves better Sushi than all the other Sushi places where I've eaten at before. Another good aspect is that my waiters were attentive and not grumpy. Three things that I'd like to suggest for the management are: 1) a Bonsai... More
