Wonderful place that lives by reputation. This is an out of the way place, but it is always busy. Extremely fresh fish and wonderful service. We always sit at the bar and love ...


I think owners and management are rude and not helpful. They must NOT like kids either. DO NOT support this restaurant.

Pricey 8/23/2010

I mainly had kitchen food, and had a spicy tuna roll. The roll was OK. I've heard so much about this place, but wasn't so impressed. I ordered plenty of appetizers, soup, and a noodle entrée. Portion size is small for the price we pay. The food is just as good as any other Japanese restaurant. I guess all the craze about this place is for the sushi, not the kitchen food. more

Love this place 7/14/2010

So I am a little concerned with eating raw fish but I have gone here for years, probably 50 times and I have not been sick yet. Before this place, I got sick on sushi twice. This place has made me feel confident to eat more and more adventureous foods each time I go. I had the gizzard shad last week and I am a fisherman and that's what I use for bait but hey, it was good! Pros: Great food Cons: None yet more

Sorry for your business! 7/21/2009

sushi & service was good!! but maneger was drunk! Pros: drinking problem more

Great hidden find 4/3/2009

Wonderful place that lives by reputation. This is an out of the way place, but it is always busy. Extremely fresh fish and wonderful service. We always sit at the bar and love it. Try the Aji - Japanese Mackeral - it was delivered fresh while we were there the last time -OMG fresh! Much milder than regular mackeral. And if you are brave, order it sashimi and have them fry the bones for you - yes, I said fry the bones! \r Like another reviewer said, during the winter months, try the Ankimo, very mild buttery pate like monkfish liver that is steam cooked. Or try the Sashito peppers fried and ask for Ponzu sauce. Yummy mild green peppers they tempura fry or grill if you like.\r I am not sure what the reviewer that complaind ate, but this IS Sushi and $40 for two is about par for Good Sushi - not cheap rolls and two for one specials. No way they ordered just tempura and paid that. Sorry you had a bad experience - we have eaten here for years and has always been good. Pros: Super Fresh fish Cons: Cost - but hey, it is sushi more

Small portions, outrageous prices crappy service 3/26/2009

Service was crappy in this restaurant, the portions were tiny and the bill outrageous. If I want that kind of treatment, I'll go to Benihana. The food is better. Won't be back again! Pros: Tempura was OK Cons: $40 for lunch for two - are you kidding me? more

still a hidden treasure... 12/10/2008

this is the 3rd time I've been to Sushi Sake and enjoy the food but have a harder time getting a prompt service. \r \r upon entering..the dumbfounded looking ""HOST"" looked confused when I said party for 2 he said huh? and made us walk closer to him to tell him again...(I mean.. come on you're a host it's your job to find out what the customer want right? this guy was clueless)\r \r we were greeted by a smiling waitress after sat down and ordered a hot tea, and water (*NOTE* must order with a lot of lemon or drink something else their water tastes really bad) I ordered a coke later on..\r \r we ordered the niku tofu / edamame to start..which are extremely good deals and it was cooked just right\r the tofu still tendor and the edamame wasn't too hard or too sawgy then we proceed to order the dobin mushi soup it was pretty good but somehow different than I remembered maybe b/c I had it at so many different places or could be the bamboo and the kinko nuts that was in the soup either way it was pretty good to my taste buds\r \r then the hamachi kama came out it was a bit small so we got 2 pieces..this dish was some what dissapointing..the meat was cooked good/well but think they forgot to put salt on the fish or season it before going on the we had to dip it in some soy sauce..(it should of came with PONZU sauce which it didn't).\r \r last but not least our sushi/roll came out..we had a order of jumbo clam and a order of salmon sushi...and a order of salmon skin roll..these can't go wrong since the chef/owner taught everyone himself (prob. taugh most of the chefs in DFW too) the sushi were very good in portion.\r \r I wish the waitress could of a little more faster on checking up on us for refills and bringing/returning the check to us....over all it's a good experience I would of given it a 5 star if the service was better and maybe some minor update to the deco. Pros: great selection of food, good sushi/rolls, close to 75 Cons: hidden location, some what unprofessional staff more

Tucked away in between the bowling alley and Balley's Gym... 8/30/2008

This place doesn't get the free drive by advertising that many other places do but it is always PACKED. Fortunately I work very close by so I get to go here a couple times a month. When you walk the smell of fresh fish hits you (this is a good smell unlike anything that I have experienced elsewhere). This family run eatery has a nice authentic interior, friendly service and THE BEST SUSHI IN DFW (at least the best I have had so far and I have been to quite a few places).\r \r Prices are pretty fair (average). The only real complaints I have are that they don't open early enough (they don't start taking take out orders until 11:30AM ), how quickly the parking lot fills up and how they aren't open at all on Sunday. They could also benefit by adding a wider variety of rolls to the menu. \r \r Minor complaints, this is a can't miss 5 start place. Pros: The best place I have been to in DFW. Cons: They aren't open as much as I would like them to be. more

Off the beaten path Sushi 4/17/2008

I was so happy with this recommendation for Sushi found on this site. I was in Richadson on business and met a co-worker for dinner. It was a very busy Thursday evening and after eating the Sushi I understand why: Everything was very fresh and very tasty. I sat at the Sushi bar and dishes were served one-by-one. I very much enjoyed the leisurely pace of the meal. The service was as it should be - prompt and polite. The docor was beautiful. The only thing negative thing I could say is that it was hard to find. Thank goodness for GPS.\r \r Pros: Ambience & Quality Cons: location more

Excellent food, Poor Service 10/28/2007

This place has the best sushi and great decor. I have been coming there for about 4 years. They also have great sushi chefs who are very friendly. The only problem with this place is the service. It's hit-or-miss depending on who your waitress is. Some of them are very non-attentive and slow. The manager of the restaurant can be very rude. I have seen the manager ask people to leave after they finish their dinner because there are other people waiting for the table. I realize that this is a popular restaurant, but at the same time, people go out to eat for the atmosphere, food, and service, and I don' t think it's right to rush people out the door as soon as they're done with the meal! Pros: Excellent food, friendly chefs Cons: Poor service more

Sushi At It's Best 8/26/2007

Sushi Sake is by far the best place in Dallas for sushi. I have been going here for years, taking family and friends, and turning skeptics of sushi in to lovers of sushi. Trying other sushi bars has proven to be a waste of time. It is highly suggested to to get in early to avoid a long wait since they do not accept reservations. The entire experience from the service to the food is no less than perfect. The hostesses are very gracious and the servers are attentive. I would suggest to sit at the bar for the entertainment of the chefs and the prompt service. The same sushi chefs are always behind the bar, which is great to see. On top of all that, the restaurant is beautiful and very comfortable. It seems that many sushi bars in Dallas are rated by the location, the people in the restaurant or how trendy it is. Sushi Sake is off the beaten path. It is not trendy, nor is it packed with see and be seen people pounding martinis. Sushi Sake is high quality sushi, friendly staff and regulars, and seems to never miss a beat. Pros: Great sushi, beautiful ambience, great service Cons: Long waits later in the evening more

Wonderful Sushi experiences 7/8/2007

This place has undoubtedly some of the best fish around. While I will admit that the variety of fish and the menu in general does not vary often, the quality and presentation is top notch. Also, the new location is not exactly on the beaten path but worth seeking out. \r We try to go at least once a month, if not more, and always make sure we order the ?chef special?. Ordering the ?special? allows us to experience new items we might not necessarily select on our own and also allows our chef (usually Soda-san, Rio, or Ryan) to be creative and try out new combinations and/or ideas with delectable results. I highly recommend being seated at the sushi bar for the best experience. If you do not arrive early, expect to wait however it is well worth it. \r The only con that I have after frequenting Sushi-sake for almost 10 years now is that *some* of the wait staff is not always in synch and can be down-right irritating at times. There are only a few of the waitress that have been there for some time and if you are not going to be seated at the sushi bar and you have a favorite few waitresses, I would suggest requesting one of them by name. I realize that sounds a little crazy however there is no food in the world worth experiencing with bad service. Pros: Food quality, presentation, and general atmosphere is wonderful Cons: Some of the wait staff can be very slow more

Best Sushi period. 3/4/2007

On March 2, 2007, I invited friends of mine from Norway to Sushi-Sake. The Sushi was the best they have ever tasted. It's been 2 days and they still continue to rave about it. We arrived at 8 pm and it took about 30 minutes to get a table (without a reservation). Well worth the wait. Pros: Excellent Sushi. Talented Chefs. Great Chef recommendations. Cons: Very Popular. Arrive Early or expect to wait more

Horrible Service 3/4/2007

March 2, 2007, I received the absolute worst service in the history of my dining out. My family and friends will not be going to this establishment. I will be sharing my experience in future training classes on what not to do to retain customers. The evening was not a loss, I wrapped up my bar tab and went over to Stone Horse around the corner and enjoyed the remainder of the evening. Go some where else. Pros: Used to be good, what happened? Cons: Management - Horrible Service more

Best Sushi place yet! 2/26/2007

I was first introduced to sushi at Sushi Sake over 8 years ago. My then boyfriend (now husband) took me there. He'd been traveling along to each sushi place Sodason had gone off to until Soda opened his own. He loves this place. He's traveled all over this country of ours and eaten at many sushi restauants to find that he can't resist going back to Sushi Sake as 'the best' every time. Soda and the rest of the Ryan, Rio are just like family. We love them and I know they love to see us come in as well. It's just like going and visiting family. My kids hate sushi but love to go anyway just because of the atmosphere and how welcomed they feel. To the person who said the manager had a bad attitude and that the chef's are nice: You don't know what you're talking about because the manager is the owner and the main chef as you walk in on the corner....that's Soda. He's awesome! more

Reservations a MUST 2/22/2007

We have been to Sushi-Sake several times and enjoy the food but have a harder time getting a table and prompt service. They don't seat incomplete parties even if you make reservations, and even with a complete party you have to wait for a table. The sushi is good, the service, however, is very slow. Our waitress wasn't apologetic for the long delays and made no efforts to check in on our order. We ended up waiting approx. 30 minutes for our food and she didn't check back on us until she asked if we were ready for the check. Food is great, service and long waits make it a drag! Pros: Good Sushi Cons: Long waits, poor service more

THE best sushi in Dallas 11/20/2006

This place has the best sushi around. They always have the freshest fish available. The chefs are very friendly. Great experience everytime I go. I make the 45min drive just to go here! Pros: fresh sushi, friendly Cons: none more

Best place in Dallas! 5/22/2006

I too have frequented places that the owner, Takahashi Soda, has worked since Nakamoto and bar none he is the best sushi chef I have ever experienced. I don't know how they manage to keep the fish and uni so fresh! It's as if they had an ocean out back and caught your food on the spot. You have to give kudos to them being that Texas is so far from the coast and with 100+ degree weather, it's baffling how they accomplish that which many sushi restaurants aspire for. Great job guys!!! Pros: Funny Chefs, Food, Ambiance Cons: Not romantic more

Sushi Saki is heaven 12/27/2005

My family has been following the main sushi chef for nearly twenty years, back when he worked at Nakamoto as a nobody. Now he has really used his skills as the best sushi chef in town to grow into the elegant, affordable (compared to others), delicious restaurant in Dallas. The nights we had scheduled to go on (every friday) would be the best nights all week and I would day dream about dinner there during high school classes. They have the best Uni I have ever had, and if you want something new or not on the menu, ask, because they will make something for you. I live in LA...but I refuse to go to any sushi bars out there anymore. Sushi Saki is just the best. Pros: Uni, Chefs, Ambiance Cons: yuppies more
