The Maitre D was very welcoming as soon as we arrived even though she had to pleasantly deal with a rude guest who booked at the wrong restaurant. It just went up from there until we walked out the door. Will be back again!

Excellent, as usual, and already a go-to choice for dinner before Arts Center events.

About Sake Restaurant & Bar Hamer Hall

Southbank gets its ​Saké fix! Nestled into the cavernous façade in Hamer Hall and led by chef extraordinaire Shaun Presland, Saké serves up unique and contemporary Japanese cuisine in a room of polished concrete, red and honey-hued woods, embroidered kimono fabrics, handcrafted crockery and blossoming cherry trees. There are a variety of seating options to suit any occasion – from booths to private dining rooms, bar stools and outdoor tables - each one offering views of the Yarra River and Flinders Street Station. Gaze outside, or watch the culinary team do what it does best in the open kitchen. Teriyaki burger balls (drool!), tender prawn dumplings, wafer thin slices of translucent kingfish and Jap-Mex crisp tacos are just some of the fantastic fare that’s plated up by executive chef, Wayne Brown. One thing’s for sure, if the Yarra River doesn’t impress, the Japanese fare that’s fun and playful will knock your socks off. Here, the combination of food, design and great service creates a winning combination that has this restaurant blossoming all year round! Best dish: Wagyu tartar
