I'll put sake up there with some of the best sushi restaurants I've had the pleasure to eat in. They offer a diverse and complete menu ranging from the ubiquitous tekka maki to exotic custom cone rolls, and everything in between. My litmus test for a great sushi restaurant is well represented here at sake; Toro. Toro is the soft... More

Good sushi place. Lots of maki (roll) choices. Prices are reasonable. Good location as its on the main strip. Table by the window is worth the wait as its a good spot to mix your dinner socializing with great people watching!

I had some of the best sushi ever at this restaurant of which I had known precisely nothing until yesterday when my wife and I visited Portsmouth. The summer maki was a remarkable variation on the tuna roll theme, with slices of apple and avocado and toppings of red and black fish roe. The combination of flavors and textures was... More

I'm always happy to have an excuse to eat here. The sushi is fresh, well cut, and good sized. The atmosphere and style of the room is pleasant, but since the space is large it loses a sense of intimacy that would have added to a dining experience. Service is always a little odd, but not unpleasant. I get a... More

If you want something a bit different in Portsmouth then this is a reasonable place to go. The service was very quick but ended up giving us parts of our man course and then our appetisers and then the rest of our main course. When we entered there were about ten waitresses walking around but it took two minutes of... More

Excellent sushi and tempura, and the entrees we tried were very well done. Service was a little slow but no problems and the interior is most pleasant for a relaxed dinner.

I took a couple of customers here for dinner and we went a little crazy ordering things. Sashimi, Maki, spring rolls, soup, drinks. I travel and eat a lot of Sashimi or Sushi. I would say this place was very, very good. Everything was fresh, well prepared and well presented. The atmosphere is nice with the traditional japanese tables against... More

Lunch after the crowd made it a nice dining experience. Ordered various dishes and they arrived in bento boxes. The food is presented attractively and we all enjoyed crisp tempura and good sushi. Service is not overly attentive--it's ok. I would go back again.

Do yourself a favor...do not eat here. I took the family here for dinner and it was a mistake. None of us liked anything we ordered including appetizers and entrees. The food was well below average and the the service was slow.
