Ok sushi, average service

This is not the best place in Pensacola for sushi, but it is reasonably priced and in a convenient location. Usually the service is fairly decent so you can get in and out quick, but the last time we were there, it was terribly slow. I love their seaweed salads- they are delicious!

Chef Wayan never ceases to amaze me! Every meal I've had has been a five star experience! It is a weekly tradition now!

We are not sushi experts, but we've been eating it for 30 years all over the country and some overseas. This sushi bar is on a very short list for us. If you have the chance, go off-menu and put yourself in the chef's hands. Sushi Chef Wayan Sumadi took a few moments to hear our preferences and went to... More

I travel a lot for work and always like to see if there is another sushi place out there that I like as much as this one. So far the answer for is no. I am happy to say my opinion is not alone as I see friends and other locals in there all the time and we instantly bond... More

This place is a must. Great management, staff , and food. Since its consistently great, we drive an hour one way just to get to go. We live in Orange Beach but have no good sushi places. Their create your own roll is awesome as well as their lunch specials. We love Sake Cafe!!

I love the clanking steel and fire in the onion rings at a hibachi table and that was as good as any I have been to, but my steak was overcooked...and would have been more so if I had not asked for it to be put on my plate already. It was not the most tender filet either. There are... More

This establishment does not seem to know what it wants to do. You enter into what is decorated and appears to be a Golden Corral type dining area. The place is on the small side, but there are more employees than tables. There is a sushi bar in the back of the restaurant and a Hibachi grill to the left... More

I have been to several other hibachi restaurants in Pensacola, but I always come back to this one. At the time of this review, I have not yet had Tokyo Hibachi on Nine Mile, which I heard was good too. For now, when I want hibachi, I go here. The hibachi chefs are always friendly and entertain you, even if... More

As usual with hibachi, the quality of the meal depends on your chef. We have been pleased on both of our visits. The filet was a perfect medium rare, the shrimp cooked just the right amount of time. We enjoyed!
