If you want sushi...this is the only place to go. The sashimi and rolls were excellent. Every dish that came out was really delicious and it had a very nice atmosphere.

I had a great lunch here! I wasn't sure what to expect, coming from Vancouver where great sushi is commonplace, but Sakae didn't disappoint. The lunch box was almost too much for me to finish, and the sashimi was fresh. The staff were really great;...More
