Meal sizes are a joke. Spend $30-$40 on a main and you get 50 grams of meat (no exaggeration). I go to a lot of fine dining restaurants so price is not an issue but this would have to be the most expensive restaurant in...More

Sake is a great lunch venue if you want a fast bite or a long afternoon. Moving from the traditional Japanese menu into more fusion dishes provides many options. The sashimi is fresh and the torched rolls are exquisite. Not a cheap eats venue and...More

Our lunch choice of a mixed platter of sushi/sashimi was exquisite. We sat at the kitchen bar for a nice lunch and were not disappointed. The service is a standout.

The food at Sake is very fresh and tasty. Pity each plate didn't have a bit more on it. The atmosphere is really nice but a little dark at the table we were at.

This restaurant was recommended to us and whilst the service was great the food was disappointing and the wine overpriced. The main courses we selected were lacking in flavour. The sashimi was tasty and fresh however overpriced.
