We had the Chef’s signature Set Menu and there was some good dishes and some ordinary ones. Great price for a date.

It was very cold where we were seated, everybody was eating with their coats on, we mentioned it to the waiter and they completely ignored us.

Got the chefs signature set. All the fish dishes quite good. The ocean trout lacked flavour but was cooked nicely pink in the middle. The prawn dumplings not good at all, didn't taste fresh. The wagyu beef was very disappointing, it was over cooked and chewy. Finally, the dish most looked forward to was unfortunately disappointing, the dragon egg looked nice however not sure if they forgotten to put water in dry ice it barely had any smoke coming out, meanwhile the tables next to us did have smoke pouring out and covering their table... So maybe bad luck. The taste was too sweet, it had too much care el and needed to be balance off with more passionfruit.

Sake was once my favourite Sydney restaurant, but over the past few years I have seen the quality and creativity drop off. Tonight, we had the chef degustation- some dishes were great (eg the tataki, the chicken), some were average (salmon, tacos, dessert). Whilst we did book on the Dimmi special, we still felt the food was overpriced for what it was, which is a shame. The sashimi tacos just don’t taste the same, and the portion sizes in the set menu cannot keep an adult full. However what I found really disappointing was the dragon egg dessert which we paid an “upgrade fee” for. Yes, it’s beautifully presented. But one bite in and I couldn’t stomach the taste- it tasted like raw egg. Something was wrong with this dessert. I notified the waitress (because sometimes, things can go wrong and I understand that). Instead of offering me another egg, or offering to take it off my bill, she challenged me. She said the dessert was “made with precision” and that it could not taste like egg. However, my husband and I could definitely taste the egg, and couldn’t finish the dessert. I woke up in the early hours of the morning nursing a stomach ache too. For a restaurant that positions itself as “up market”, I think that basic common courtesy requires you to hear out your customers, and listen to their feedback rather than challenge it.
