Wow, what an experience! We celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary last night and had the Chef's Omakase and enjoyed every second of it. What made our meal experience exceptional, though, is Katerina's thoughtfulness. She looked after us really well and it was so nice to be able to have honest, friendly advice on what to order, etc. And of course the dishes were sensational! We can't wait to be back!

First time - family visit, 5 of us shared several plates, mixture of small and large. Everything was delicious. Had a cocktail (the only disappointment of the evening, so much ice).

Second time (with husband and a colleague) we had the 7 course set menu with a $100 bottle of sake. Came to $150 per person all up. (2 had the magnificent Dragons egg). It was hard to pick a favourite course, loved them all.

All staff were efficient and friendly, despite tables being at about 90% occupancy.

I would rate this as a special treat restaurant- and worth every penny.

I look forward to another meal here when I’m next in Sydney.

Thank you Sake Restaurant & Bar.

We eat japanese, sushi and sashimi whenever we can around the world, and we love sake. This is a good restaurant but for the price, we couldn't rate it above 3. The sake is very expensive and the food was above average, though not even close to the best sushi or japanese fusion we've had in other places. The 'cool factor' of the interior and ambience seems to be part of the price you pay for the whole experience, and it is nice inside. The food is good but again, not the best we've had and pretty average. We travel a lot and this didn't make our site about bloody good eats and drinks @eatdrinknbmarried.com #eatdrinknbmarried
