We focused on the Japanese dishes, esp. sashimi, which was top rate. Edamame dumplings were excellent. And some of the desserts count among our favorites. The wait staff is very attentive and helpful.

Their special rolls are a bit pricey, so you might be better off getting regular rolls. They are very good, and dare I say, might even be better than so called "Special" rolls. Their sashimi is excellent! Give them a try if you are on low carb diet.

Cafe SADO has been a favorite for more than a decade. We dine there at least quarterly. Their extensive sushi and sashimi menu keeps three chefs / preparers at the sushi bar quite busy, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. A prix fixe menu of multiple three-course Thai dinners rounds out the menu from the kitchen. Check out their menu on... More

While some of the items we ordered were very tasty (crispy duck and salmon were outstanding), I am extremely disappointed in the way our evening went. Strike one: the server didn't take my daughter's food order and did not come back to check on us until right before our food arrived, which led to my daughter's meal being served considerably...

We've enjoyed several dinners and lunches here and have found the location a little off the beaten path but worth it. The sushi and menu in general is good and priced well. The only thing I'd pick on a little is the professionalism of the servers. The array of hostess's has always been friendly and efficient, but our service has... More

Small off the beaten path, located in a marina you need to drive into a neighbourhood setting to reach, but it is WORTH IT! If you enjoy Sushi, it is BOGO every day! Great selection, and don't let the BOGO fool you, it is standard size, and top quality. It is not glamorous, but it is what it is, quant,... More

Visited for dinner during a weekday evening based on good reviews. I had expected this to be a Japanese, pan-Asian restaurant. It was primarily Thai, with some Indonesian, and only sushi and ramen as Japanese. Must have changed ownership. The sake list contained 4 entries, none of which were identified by type, district, or quality (just "hot" or "cold"). No... More

We've been coming to Sado for a few years now and it never disappoints. The food and the service is always great. Our waitress Jessica knew the menu in and out, and was very attentive. I highly recommend this place. You'll love it!
