My wife and I had dinner here while staying nearby for our flight out the next morning. We arrived at 6:15 and the place was just a quarter full but by the time 7 pm rolled around it was full. Service was very good and...More

If you want the ultimate sushi experience and are willing to pay equivalent to a three star Michelin restaurant bill, order off the black board featuring fish from the World famous Tokyo Fish Market. Worth eveery cent, the sushi bar man is a master. If...More

Really good sushi - in fact the best in the Burlingame/SM area. However, it is expensive. 5-piece California roll is $8... so you get an idea of what the good stuff is going to cost. Parking is an issue for quick take-out.

Good food, good ambiance, the rice is exceptional and the fish very fresh. Not a 5 star because of the cleanliness of the place.

We picked Sakae on my way to San Francisco International Airport. There is no complaint about the sushi or the food we ordered. All was nicely picked and presented. However, we were hugely let down by its service. We arrived without any booking so could...More
