“3rd favorite sushi restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I wanted to give 3.5 stars but I don't have the option. This is a great restaurant and extremely convenient if staying in the Gulf. The food is always pretty good. On this most recent visit though the sushi wasn't as fresh as it usually is. In their defense the last 5 times have been great. I still prefer Maki or Marai, but this is a good place nonetheless.

“great teppanyaki!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We ate here whilst statying in the gulf hotel. The teppanyaki was very good and the staff attentive. It was great value for money and well worth trying.

I will definitely go back and highly recommend it to anyone who loves Japanese food.

“Very good Japanese restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Very good service, nice decoration, You can even make the reservation of separate room if You like privacy.
I started visiting Sato 2 years back. Food is very good, especially Maki.

Last time I was there this month and service was not that good anymore. What is more worrying food was not excellent.

I'll give the another chance October, I hope they will come back to previous level.
