We were so disappointed. We asked for a bottle of wine from the menu and were told they’d “sold out”. The only alternative was for us to order another from their menu at $30 more per bottle. There was no in between compromise. The service was actually pretty bad and the place was almost empty so lacking atmosphere. I’ve wanted to dine at Sake for ages and this was a disappointment to say the least.

We felt valued as diners and were looked after really well. Food was excellent. Only criticism was that as we were ordering from the lunch time favourites menu that we didn’t have the option of being able to swap out any of the dishes or upgrade the offer (we had a voucher which was awesome) to another menu that would have suited our children a bit better. Anyway they tried eggplant for the first time and that has to be a good thing.

Always a pleasure to return ti Sake at Hamer Hall. A quick bite before a show: easy/avvessible location, great drinks list and fab food menu - maybe add some specials as the menu has been the same for sometine. Great service & again, delicious & well presented food..

Neil Perry has done it again! We booked this restaurant as a last-minute decision when my wife and I decided to travel into the city for a meal and we were not disappointed. Our waiter was fantastic, customising a menu that suited my wife (who doesn’t eat seafood) and I. The food was great, a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. If you’re a beer drinker try their chocolate stout, it’s amazing.

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
