Plenty of fresh tasty food. The dinner box is very generous. Love the private booths! 2 mains, 2 Japanese beers and a soft drink $57.

It was a Monday night, we didn't make a reservation but the place was full and we managed to get a table. Would prefer to go into a booth table, but they were full. The service was slow. We just had the dinner boxes of Teriyaki chicken and spicy pork, which were very average, nothing really that special.

I'm really into japanese food and have eaten a good deal of tempura. Sakai has possibly the best tempura that i've had so far. Their dinner box is value for money and very filling. I like their booth table seats which gives you some privacy and have been going back ever since we stumbled upon this restaurant. Service is good... More

Love the traditional ambience in this little restaurant. The food is nice and authentic and reasonably priced. The service is great. I love the little boothes which give privacy you can have 4 people in a booth.

Great restaurant! Staff are very friendly with great customer service. The layout of the venue was warm and inviting, also dressed to theme. Dinner meal that I had was fantastic, hot udon with a side of tempura and sushi. Perfectly timed winter warmer.
