Couldn't fault it, service was great and food even better. Popcorn shrimp amazing. Great views and location. We got the set menu and it was reasonably priced. They are also kid friendly, unlike expensive, pretentious Japanese restaurant Wasabi (check out their restaurant policies!). Will be...More

The food here was excellent. We have been disappointed by the sushi in Australia on more than one occasion but enjoyed everything we tried at Sake (sushi sampler, wagyu tartare, octopus, and of course sake), except maybe the edamame. Tasted fine, but was so messy...More

This was my third visit to Saké in Brisbane. Something has changed, not for the better. The food is now more like what a western chef might make Japanese food. It lacked the delicacy and finesse that so impressed me on my first two visits...More

Terrific food with attention to detail. Worth the money. The craft beers were especially nice (one sweet potato beer that was too drinkable). Excellent service, the staff knew their menus, dish presentation and flavour were also exceptional.

Returned for a Friday lunch with close friends and Sake did not disappoint. Shared several dishes, sashimi, king fish, prawn popcorn, dumplings - all the food was excellent and the service attentive without being intrusive. Plus Sake carries the dark Asahi simply a great beer.

So good. Every dish was delicious and surprising. The vegetables sang. I didn't think compressed daikon with shichimi togarachi seasoning would be an ingredient I would be thinking about with pleasure 2 hours after the meal. Wonderful, attentive service from all staff. The old fashioned...More
