Yum Yum Sauce!

Had the steak & chicken habachi, served on bed of steamed rice. Drizzled yum yum sauce over the rice - sweet deliciousness!!! Oh yeah, the sweet carrots were the bomb! (Ate there twice during my visit.)

Love their chicken stir fry. Their salads are always fresh and crisp. The salad dressing is divine. We order our dinner without sauce and use the dressing on it. Wonderful! Very reasonable prices and a great staff. Give them a try!

Sarah Sharp in the last week Let me tell you about my experience at Sake in Lebanon, TN. We walk in & even though the restaurant had a solid 2 customers and a bunch of empty tables we got the pleasure to sit at the table by the entrance of the kitchen. The cook in the kitchen that had probably... More

My wife and i go here all the time. The food is always hot and fresh, when it's delivered to your table. I always have the hibachi style, samurai dinner and it's delicious! It's a great little spot in Lebanon.

I've had both sushi and hot meals here. Neither have disappointed. Try the squid salad for your appetizer. Delicious! I avoided this place for a while after moving to Lebanon because the exterior is unimpressive. Just a little nondescript white block building surrounded by used car lots. I assumed it would be typical small town Asian fare. Not so! The... More

I always get either the grilled shrimp or salmon (w/o the teriyaki glaze) with extra broccoli & no rice. Love both & altho' the first time I had the salmon, it was overcooked, all I had to do was ask them to cook it less & it was perfect the next time. They're very accommodating and want to make sure...

We have eaten here many times and have always experienced great service and good food. You definitely won't go away hungry. It is a small intimate little place with approx 15 tables but not so cramped where you are on top of each other. Here in TN all restaurants are ranked with a score by the restaurant inspector and this... More

Food reseasonably price and tastes good. However you should go just for the salad dressing. Seriously the best thing ever!!!! They should bottle it and sell it.

If you want a great meal at a great price come to Sake. I took my family here for dinner and everyone loved it. The food is great and service is day and friendly. We will definitely go back on our next trip.
