This restaurant in Merrick Park Village is a great place to eat in the evening, but make sure that it isn't going to rain! Very little room inside and the pleasure is to be outside away from the music a bit. The food is an eclectic mixture of asian and european tapas and BBQed meat skewers with a choice of... More

We were a group. Enjoyed very much the meal, the service, the atmosphere and the reasonable price. The new chef was all this restaurant needed to become perfect. We had a variety of dishes of Mediterranean and Japanese recipes.

This restaurant is located in the luxury open air shopping mall 'the village of Merrick park'. This restaurant offers a combination of Asian and Italian food. Service and food are great. Good wine choices. You can have your dinner outside which is nice and quiet. You don't feel the husle and busle from the city. We loved it here.

Just had an amazing dinner at Sawa, the ambiance, service and food are all excellent! We were lucky they were offering the Miami Spice menu, we had the Greek platter and salmon tiraditos for starters, we had the shrimp and quinoa and salmon and filet mignon skewers for our entree, finished the night with a peach pannacotta and the most...

I decided to go back with my boyfriend to eat one night Let me make it clear that this restaurant is recommended for outdoor seating only. Indoor is crowded. Outside its extremely romantic and cozy.

We decided to visit the Village of Merrick Park this past Friday evening as there are a number of restaurants within the mall. We decided on Sawa. I had been there only once before for a drink with some friends but never for dinner. It was a beautiful evening and we sat outside. Our server was fantastic; cheerful, full of... More

This is a great place for happy hour! Their dumplings and lamb lollipops are fabulous. I also recommend the falafels. They have $4 glasses of champagne during happy hour and cheap beers. I have been 3 times now---the first 2 times the service was TERRIBLE and last week it was fabulous so I guess they are hiring better staff.

Sawa is a blend of Japanese and middle eastern cuisine. Sitting outside in the Village of Merrick Park is wonderful. I found the appetizers especially good as are the happy hour prices and drinks.
