“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Absolutely fantastic on all aspects of this dining experience!!! On the evening we decided to go, it was quite a busy night and they did exceptionally well at being as prompt as they could, which was very impressive. The 'steamed prawn dumplings' are definitely a big recommendation, they have honestly got to be the best dumplings we've ever had in our life... So delicious!! You will not regret dining here!!!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

The most delicious sushi I have ever eaten - the spicy tuna rolls were fab! The service was by far the best we had in Australia - sitting at the bar was fun!

“OMG...AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Ok so my husband and I usually frequent another Japanese restaurant when in Brisbane, but we were staying at the Stamford and wanted to try something different so my brother-in-law recommended we try Sake...best idea ever!! We had a drink at their bar before dinner and then sat down and ate the most amazing and fresh food we have ever tried. Sashimi was so beautiful and fresh, tempura light & crisp, wagyu tartare was devine, pork belly skewers melted in your mouth, chocolate dessert was to die for! Oh and the sake and cocktails weren't too bad either. Recommend this place to anyone & everyone looking for cleverly designed & fresh food. Best money we have spent in awhile. Will definately be our new hang out when in Brisbane.

“Go back to service school!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We dined as a party of 6 and whilst the food was good, the service was poor. That was followed up by an arrogant manager who saw fit to dispute everything we complained about rather than try to resolve the problem. Never again.
