Have been here twice for dinner and each time of great quality. If you like sushi and sashimi, then this is your place. Edamame is great.

Unfortunately we never got to try the food at this restaurant, as no-one was interested in serving us. Two of us (both middle aged, reasonably presented women) walked in off the street on a Saturday night and were greeted by a frown and a look...More

There are lots of restaurants in this area and Sabu is a good Japanese restaurant to go to if you like this type of food. They have a happy hour menu with each dish costing $10. Our party selected most of the 8-10 selections and...More

比較的まともな日本食屋でした。モダンな雰囲気も持ち合わせており、人を招くときもよいかもしれない。 値段もバカ高くないので、満足感も大きいかな。寿司Platter(二人前)40ドル。漁師風Seafood Soup$19, Edamame $5. Main Dish のSalmon grill ga 30+, Wagyu $50. でもこの和牛、本物ではないと思う。食べてないけど、オーストラリアで採れる和牛はないのじゃないかと(?) Fair deal, decent JP food you can expect from this place, Sabu. @ChurchStreet. I highly recommend you go there with friends and/or with family and occasional business networking. Nice atmosphere. We...More

Tiny little restaurant that we overlooked for many years. Our loss! The restaurant is awesome- everything is made fresh and the quality is great. We are now regulars.

Went to Sabu to celebrate and was really looking forward to it as the first time I went with my husband it was perfect. Today it was just terrible. They were so understaffed that it wasn't even funny. At least two extra waiters were necessary....More

Really good clean food, waiters are very friendly and attentive. I was actually surprised how good this place was. If you are after traditional (westernised) Japanese dishes then this is not the place for you. They offer more contemporary Japanese which is really good.

Being a Sushi / Sashimi lover I was told Sabu is very good so we gave it a try. In all honesty it wasn't bad but certainly not very good. I cant understand why a Sushi please doesn't have Wasabi? We asked for it and...More

I took my friends there for a farewell and found a piece of thick plastic in our salad. The way the restaurant handled this incident was of poor quality. Although they offered more salad, they were not apologetic about the incident and when I went...More
