    Our party of three is vegan and we were very happy with the range of delicious choices. I particularly enjoyed the tempura vegetables in gossamer-light batter and the beautifully presented seaweed salad. My son loved the tofu. We enjoyed our meal at one of the outside tables overlooking the Yarra River. A lovely spot for a pre-theatre meal.

    Sake never disappoints. Delicious food in lovely setting next to the Yarra. Broad selection of drinks. Great service. Great for quick pre-MTC meal.

    Sake has never disappointed and our visit last week was as good as expected. The staff are always helpful. They know the menu very well and don’t try to over sell you on the number of dishes. We had a couple of friends with us and one wasn’t really a fan of sushi, but that didn’t stop her enjoying the food as there is a great choice of modern Japanese main courses. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Great dining experience. The two of us shared 4 starters and 2 mains. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes, but the Toothfish was the standout. The staff were attentive and courteous and we couldn't fault the service. Sake is pricey, but for a special night out it's a must.

    Everything close to perfect. Just wait staff a bit slow on taking orders, finalising bill. Needed a little more anticipation of need. Will def be back!

    When we arrived, we were welcomed as returning customers. All the waiters were very attentive, bringing us excellent food. We’ll definitely return.

    I love this place and alway make this my No#1 go to when heading into town. I understand that I we were heading to a theatre show however the seating they gave us made it difficult to order. We were right in the corner at the bar, which made it difficult to get the attention on the waiters. This would have been fine if we weren’t on a time line to see the show. As a result we ordered a few dishes which came late and I missed on 1 dish. Unfortunate......

    Always wanted to dine here and was not disappointed. Food was amazing and staff friendly. Went with one of their set menu options to give ourselves a taste of their most popular dishes, a big thumbs up.

    The service on that day was nowhere near what my family and I experienced over the years we have been going there for special occasions and especially the surcharge added on. Skeleton staff , lack of attention to the basic service details and one of the worst miso soup we had and so not something you would expect from Sake and not for the price one paid for it.

    The reception when we arrived was outstanding - welcome back Mr and Mrs Hagger. The food and service just appreciated from there. We had a very happy and enjoyable night with our son and his family to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Sake has a high standard that has been maintained for many years. It would sound mundane to say that we had sashimi, scallops, and seaweed salad, but these were way above the general standard! Each dish was a surprise, and a pleasant one.

    We have dined at Sake Hamer Hall on a few occasions and always found the food and wine selection to be very good and also very consistent. The wait staff are always attentive and very well presented. Please keep up the good work and excellent standards.

    Modern Japanese cuisine. Service was friendly and prompt and staff paid attention to our theatre commitment. The food was satisfactory but was a little lacking in flavour. Wine list was a little limited too
