Excellent fusion cuisine based on Japanese cuisine. I think they also have classic Japanese dishes. It is good to book at least a day in advance because it is always full of people. The restaurant is not very expensive

We booked from. NZ three weeks earlier for a 6:30 dinner sitting. We got given a small room which was ideal for us meeting up with Sydney friends. Everything about the evening was truly excellent. Best meal we have had for a long time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Sake - the place is very cool, the service is very good and the food is delicious! I recommend the Hiramasa Kingfish sashimi, the softshell crab roll and the shrimp tempura roll.

The dishes were tasty, naked and expensive. "Naked" means a share plate mains fish dish literally had a piece of cooked fish on it, nothing else. The sushi rolls were pricy and small. Good ingredients though, but really not a sophisticated range of flavours. Sakes...More

Had a birthday lunch at Sake. I was eager to try their set menu ($98/person), having not dined here before. Although I did peruse the a la carte options, just in case. As I have an allergy to crustaceans, they swapped the popcorn shrimp for...More
