My first time at Sato II was about eight years ago January. It was actually my first date with my husband. On his suggestion that is where we decided to meet for dinner. What a great choice. The food is amazing as was the service. Perhaps it was the fact that we had a great date that helps it along.... More

This is our go-to place in town for sushi. Restaurant is usually very busy, even on the weekdays. The spicy tuna rolls are my son's favorite.

These folks have catered big parties and many family gatherings. The food is fresh and can be prepared without msg. Their sushi is delicious. Give them a try. Dining room is a bit tight for my liking, same great food though.

I had purchased a Groupon certficate a few months ago & with the hot weather we decided to try Sato on a hot Sunday evening. When we arrived the bar was full but dining room was almost empty. This changed by the time we left - the place was hopping. Popular with families, couples and singles groups who were sharing... More

When we moved to the area this was the number one recommendation we got from everyone and for good reason. Although it doesn't look like much - the food is excellent. The sushi is fresh and the chinese food is very good. Everything is freshly made and the fish is wonderful. We like the spicy tuna roll, beef teriyaki, the... More

I am a little surprised by the last two reviews here. We just found Sato 2 while spending time seeing shows at Stoneham Theatre nearby. Both times we arrived without reservations and luckily we were seated with no problem - probably because it was only two of us. I asked, and they do take reservations. The restaurant offers Chinese, Japanese... More

This was my first and last visit to Sato 2. First, there's only so much you can renovate in an old KFC then a Jack in the Box. The layout is '70's vintage cheap dark wood paneling and too many tables. We had a Poo Poo Platter, egg rolls and a side of beef fried rice. The Beef Teriaki and... More
