A little extra

I stopped while traveling I95 tried the sushi, and enjoyed it thoroughly. The serving was a little larger than average. What I really liked was the amount of fish on each piece, which was really very generous. I am also a fan of flavored rice, which they use. I'll be back!

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

Took an hour and 15 minutes for delivery (even though our hotel was close by) and food was inedible. Shrimp and veggie tempura was cold and soggy with no flavor. Same for egg rolls, crab Rangoon and sweet and sour chicken. Soup had no flavor and salad was iceberg lettuce with half a cherry tomato. Prices are not cheap, so... More

Since we moved to the area recently everything we try is new to us. I wanted to make my wife to eat Japanese for her birthday and give our kids a show. We arrived and were seated immediately. When it came time to place our order we did, and asked for ranch for our salad. They didn't have any ranch.... More

The service was not that great which I was willing to overlook. But the fried rice didn't taste right. The sushi was OK but I've had better. Will not return.
