Something for everyone

When you enter you have your choice of cuisines - Hibachi - Thai - Sushi - Asian. If you're in the mood for Japanese Hibachi you can sit around one of 4 cooking tables - each with it's own chef....complete with flying knives, onion volcanoes and a lot of surprises. So much fun!

Looking for a great Nesai restaurant with hibachi for the kids, and most excellent sushi for the adults? This is the place. BTW, if you're in the mood for a little Saki, stop by the bat and see Rebecca for an adult libation.

We just had dinner here for the second time and already we can't wait to go back. The food is so fresh and beautifully prepared. Very nice staff. Attentive but not intrusive. Atmosphere leaves a little to be desired. I could do without all the TV's on sports stations. Prices are reasonable. Sushi is beyond delicious.

Made a Sunday afternoon early-dinner visit here. Had a sashimi platter which was excellent - I've paid a lot more in DT Savannah and gotten a whole lot less. Fish was fresh, tasty, attractively plated. Service was great. Will be back.

My husband and I love this restaurant and agree it is the best hibachi in Pooler and Savannah. You can not order anything bad from this menu, as we have tried almost all! Also, you can not beat their lunch prices. I can not comment on the other side as I have only eaten hibachi here.

This was our first time to Sawa. We were trying to pass time while waiting for an appointment. The inside is very cozy and inviting. The tables and booths are spacious. Seating and drink orders were taken care of promptly. Both husband and I ordered the Bento Box special. I had the hibachi chicken while he had steak. I noticed... More

We loved coming here until recently (post remodel). The sushi rolls are much smaller with less rice, they replaced the fresh cooked crunchy snacks that you dip in duck/hot mustard sauce with a pre-made cheese straw type. Not a deal breaker, but disappointing.

We used to love this place. But I think it is under a new owner. Everything went cheap. They used to make their own appetizer fried noodles, now they are stale packaged. The portions are noticeably smaller. The sushi rolls are about half what they used to be. The food taste good which is why they got two stars. But... More
