I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant - very good! The salmon melted in the mouth like butter, tofu three ways (special) was to die for!

Wow!! Amazing food- excellent quality an freshness! Some of the best sashimi Ive ever had an I've spent ALOT of time in Japan. The specialty sake that is especially brewed for Sake is delisssuuushh!! Gyoza was perfect an handmade-not a frozen imitation. Edamame was great with a light dashi flavour. The hotpot was also excellent an a nice winter food. Would go back in a heartbeat.
They also have tatami sunken seating for a nice Japanese feel. Great atmosphere for drinks to start in the bar an into the main impressive resturaunt with private dining rooms also available an sushi bar.

Loved everything about Sake, the service was amazing. Gluten free options was practically the whole menu. And food was sensational. Will return soon.

I know that other ppl complained about the price, but we tried the signature dish menu and was very impressed. The most notable dishes were the pork katsu, the salmon (ora king) and the chocolate garden (which would satisfy any chocolate lover)

If you want fine modern Japanese food in Brisbane, you can't go past Sake. We've been there the last three times we visited Brisbane and every time has been great. From the sashimi and sushi to the elegant main courses, we love the food.

And then there's the sake - such an interesting selection with really helpful descriptions and advice from the the wait staff.
