We went there for a lunch, we took the vegetarian sushi and fish ramen. Sushi was amazing! I was really impressed. Also ramen was very yummy! It’s also quite cheap, for a lunch with a starter, main dish and desert you pay 8euros. Totally recommend!

Sato Bento has two modes of operation: mid-day lunch and "slow food" dinner; my experience is from the dinner. There is only one menu possible, as selected by the chef, and you don't know in advance what you will get. I like this element of...More
