“What a positive surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

On the way from Williamsburg to Virginia Beach I looked for a Japanese restaurant on my navigation system (Garmin) and it showed me Sai Gai. When we arrived and entered the restaurant we made a U-turn, as it did not look to good. A freindly waiter stopped us and so we staid. Thenks god we staid.
The show at the Teppanyaki were world class and the cook entertained everyone.The food excellen and the sashimi we had as starter aussume and super fresh. I would recommand this restaurant to everybody looking for great food, super show and very moderate prices.
We vent there during our 7 day stay in Virginia Beach 3 times. And it was alway every $ and mile worth.

Outstanding service. The owner takes the time to come out and greet the guests. Tasty 'special sauce' overall has declined slightly in the last year, but a good experience nonetheless. Sushi is well constructed.
