Very noisy , food just ok . My local Japanese can do just as good for a quarter of the price. I’ve been there at least 10 times and this was by far the worst.

My partner and I came for our 10 year anniversary for the first time and it did not disappoint! Was so surprised at the buzz and atmosphere. For fine Japanese dining it's like you were walking straight into a funky Japanese setting. Couldn't fault the food and drink nor the service for that matter. We will definitely be back!

Food was great along with atmosphere. Service not so good with dishes from one waiter just plonked on table at one end, when we had other diners at the other end. No mention if this was all we were getting or other dishes coming.

Our experience was great! Food was delicious and atmosphere was nice. The only thing that could be better was the table that we were sitting. Stools were too tall and not so comfortable to have a 7 course meal. But honestly this was the only “negative part”. Food was one of the best I’ve tried in Sydney and the location is great.

About Sake Restaurant & Bar The Rocks

Sensational Sushi at ​Saké Saké. Home to Sydney’s best sushi, no doubt about it. Tucked away in a heritage-listed former woolstore in the harbourside suburb of The Rocks, this Sydney dining institution attracts fine diners and business-lunchers alike - all on the hunt for the best sushi in the city. ​Led by an amazing team of chefs, Saké serves up the clean, fresh flavours of Japan, matched to traditional Japanese wines like sake (it has over 40 varieties). We suggest starting with the Hiramasa Kingfish with Soy Dressing and house made Lime & Jalapeño Kosho and our signature Cape Grim Short Rob Bossam is a standout, as are the tempura and sushi rolls. The sleek, contemporary interior and world class food keeps people coming back again, and again. We’ll say it again. Best sushi in Sydney. Get there. Best dish: Cape Grim Short Rob Bossam with baby gem lettuce, pickles, confit garlic and ssam sauce
