A wonderful discovery. We love sushi and sashimi and this is by far the best in the area! We certainly did not find this expensive considering the quality of the fresh seafood provided. The extensive menu is a delight and service prompt and friendly. Love the place!

Our go-to for sushi/sashimi in Burlington and Sakai never disappoints.

The grown ups had: sushi lunch, sashimi lunch and the Sakai bento lunch. The 9 year old had deep fried mandu.

Fish was fresh and service was prompt and efficient. No complaints!

We have been coming here for the last 10 years. Great sushi and sashimi food quality. But the price has jumped pretty dramatically of late. So quantity has stayed the same whereas price has increased by 25%. Additionally, the service used to be wonderful. Now not as wonderful. Take out service is like Groundhog Day. Same questions, same issue, always something. Do we still like it? Yes. Will we come as often. No. Unfortunate but true.

Seems to be a standard Japanese/Korean place as any you can find in GTA. The food was good, but not outstanding. On a Sunday afternoon, they seem to be rather understaffed: a long wait to get the bill.

Good since the get go, Sakai is a mixture of Japanese and Korean offerings that hits the value mark right on. You get larger, less delicate, high quality pieces of sushi and sashimi than other places. There are shortcuts to making sushi, but none are taken here. Kitchen performance is strong when it comes to fried fare and Korean dishes, such as Japanese Kaki Fry and Korean Bulgogi. Poor service is not tolerated at Sakai, but, if it gets busy, expect a bit of a wait. While service would rather not keep people waiting, it's clear any delays are the result of never letting a dish go out that wasn't well prepared. A larger space with ample parking, it is good for lunch and larger tables. There is also an excellent arrangement of more private, open, and bar-style seating. Just off the highway, I recommend stopping in if your lunch-hour coincides with passing through Burlington.
