Great food, great service and great atmosphere! My wife and I went there for an anniversary dinner and splurged on the "signature dishes" - what an interesting and delicious variety. The staff were very helpful in suggesting a very enjoyable selection of sake.

One word of warning - it's not cheap. But for something special, it's worth the extravagance.

The service at Sake is great, helpful and personal, and they make you feel very welcome. But the kicker is the food! Everything we had was amazing and I could eat here a thousand times and not get sick of it. The sashimi is out of this world! My favourite place to eat in Brisbane!

Was there with a very best friend for dinner on a weekday night.
We were greeted by the friendly staffs who gave us lots of recommendation on food and wine. and, WE LOVE the sake that the staff recommended (am a huge sake fan myself).

Ambience is fusion japanese with very comfortable settings. Food was absolutely DELICIOUS! I've tried so many japanese restaurant around the world, but this is really something worth trying and come back again. Plus the extensive selections of sake, hm.. man, if you are a sake fan like me, or non-sake fan... well, please, by all means try it with a nice sashimi starter or just ask for any recommendation.

We were absolutely blown away by the food until the dessert, the chocolate dessert was the perfect finale. Paired well with a glass of Umeshu just out of this world.

Haven't been to such a nice pleasant restaurant for a long time. Totally recommend this restaurant.

PS: note all the dishes are meant for sharing, so bring a friend with you to share the wonderful experience.

100% enjoyed and recommend.

My partner and I had the greatest pleasure of dinning at Sake on Friday the 22nd March.

The maitre sat us at the Chef table and we allowed her to choose the meals for us, after she asked us for any dislikes . Highly recommend this resturant for a relaxed location without the attitude or poor service.

Worth the visit.
