Went here for a fun time with good food and we weren't disappointed. Our chief was entertaining and engaging. The food was excellent. Would recommend for a family or work night out.

We tried Sawa (not the hibachi section) the other week while visiting with family in the area. The menu was very small for their sushi and entrees/appetizers. The food was delicious (the yaki udon with chicken was amazing), but it was pretty pricey. Our bill...More
