Both times were fun. During the visit with Steve one of our dishes was forgotten and took a long time to arrive so it was complimentary and rightly so but well done for fixing it. The second time, with Stef, we were busy chatting and one of the chefs tries to stack a dish on a shelf above us (we were sat at the sushi bar) and it falls through clattering down and upsetting our basket of dumplings. Cue free dumplings!
I've enjoyed the service at Sake. There's a Restaurant Manager there called Anthony who is friendly, fun and good at his job.
The steak tartare is delicious - rich, truffley and decadent.
As non salmon lovers both Stef and Steve were less impressed. Steve just thought it was too salmony and it's not his kind of fish anyway. Stef thought the fish fillet was just too oily for her.
We worked our way through a milk and tapioca trifle, little pear pastry puffs, chocolate muffin, buttermilk panna cotta (amazing), sticky date and ginger pudding and a trio of ice creams (vanilla, watermelon, black sesame).
Sake is not cheap nor is it value for money but it is an enjoyable place to eat that is always fun. The ambience is buzzy, the location is great, the decor attractive, the wait staff welcoming and the food good.
