My wife chose Sato for her Mother's Day dinner. The food was delicious. The chef was awesome and interacted with our children. The little ones really enjoyed it as they had never been to a Japanese restaurant before.

If you're looking for a place to enjoy some good food& drinks, then Sato's is the place for you. They have a dining area for larger parties. The cooks & servers are very friendly. Ask for Miguel (cook) or Heather (server). You won't be disappointed...More

Our son graduated Basic in August of 2016 and wanted some Japanese style meal. Sato was recommended to us by the Captain. Location is close to Fort Jackson and food is very good. Staff is very courteous and nice. I would go here again.
