Variety and choice abounds at Sarasota. The wonderful friendly hosts are supported by staff that are ok. Food is excellent though a little pricey compared to other Asian restaurants. Entrees are excellent, always ask if there are blackboard specials. Upstairs is nice but noisy from darling at traffic. Been heaps of times and staff remember you.

Balmain has an abundance of restaurants so there is plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We live in Balmain so it's safe to say we've eaten almost everywhere. Satasia had seemed to slip through our net so we only made our visit two weeks ago,arriving about 9pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was half full which I hoped meant... More

There are many choices in Balmain and this is not one that I would choose again. Being more specific, we had 2 "Indian" dishes - a Rogan Josh and a Korma, which were very average. The food was overspiced and did not taste like the description on the menu. Lesson learnt. Service was ok, having ordered one portion of rice,... More

This restaurant serves up the best salt and pepper squid I've ever had. The squid is fresh and tender, with none of that watery mushy texture that frozen squid gets. The batter is fine, light and crispy with a wonderful blend of spices and chilli. The menu has lots to choose from to suit meat eaters and non meat eaters.... More

Terrible is an understatement. They took the wrong order, brough chicken instead of beef, and we had to wait ONE hour for the dishes to arrive! The menu was too extensive and the dishes pretty ordinary. Expensive and mediocre. NEVER, EVER will go back to this place!

We were here with a large group and decided on a banquet style meal. The food was all delicious and there was plenty of it, no one went home hungry! The service from the waiters was excellent and one of the waiters had a fantastic sense of humor. It is a very busy place but everything flowed well. I very... More

Satasia has been around Balmain for many years. I have never been disappointed in the quality of the food. The round tables are great for conversation if you have a small group. It can get busy and noisy at times.

I'll start by saying 1 visit to any restaurant, cafe, venue of any kind does not give you a true experience you can get bad service at the best restaurants this didn't mean it is a bad place to eat, we have been going to Satasia since 1998, I had my 40th birthday there my 50th and probably average 6...

I hadn't eaten at Satasia for several years until a recent cold winters night. The large menu with its broad pan Asian spread is a little overwhelming, but the dishes we had were all very generous, tasty and fresh. Service was prompt and attentive despite the restaurant being very busy including a couple of large groups. I can understand how... More
