BEWARE – I wish I could rate this place less than one star.
This place is horribly over priced, over sauced and the owner is a complete a-hole to boot.
We ordered the High Maintenance, which on the menu does NOT include sauce. The roll came with sauce and when we asked the waiter if we could get the roll as it appeared on the menu, the owner said that we could have it if we paid for it and he asked us if we thought this was McDonalds.
We were appalled at being treated this way. The waiter told us this isn't the first time something like this has happened and even went as far as to tell us about other sushi places to try in the area.
Most places look to make their customers happy, not here.
Needless to say we will not be going back to Sake Toro...ever.
Piss poor prices, piss poor food, piss poor customer service.
Mediocre food, crazy expensive prices and poor service. – This place is terrible. I ordered 6 California rolls, 6 spicy tuna rolls and a grilled salmon, $43. Not the meal mind you, $18 for a palm sized grilled salmon steak and no sides. The sushi was very small, the meat inside was pureed but it all tasted ok.
They brought out our plates one at a time over the course of 1.5 hours such that by the time they brought mine out, everyone at the the table was done and the waitress had picked their plates up. Of course had I known ordering just a piece of meat was going to cost me $18, I wouldn't have waited the 1.5 hours.
Great location, mediocre food and lackluster service – If you want sushi before catching an event at Frisco's Pizza Hut Park, this is an okay place to go. You'll spend less here on food than you will in the stadium.
Sake Toro is immensely overpriced and the quality is comparable to that you'd find at any other suburban sushi joint. The service; however, is horrid. Lots of servers, but no one seemed to know what was going on.
Beware of the LADY – Food: Excellent. Fresh, tasty and amazing to the eye.
I and my husband walked in around five to celebrate my birthday. The young male server was very quick even though the restaurant was nearly empty. I ordered a bottle of Sake, and although the bottle was not listed on the beverage menu, the server brought us the well-chilled bottle right away.
Then, the older Asian lady walked in (the owner,) the waiter seemed to be explaining that we insisted on having the bottle. But the lady walked up to our table and took the bottle without even explaining why and, not to mention that she did so without an apology. Then, she yelled at the server in a different language. The waiter was nice enough to come back to our table to apologize and explain the situation, but I and my husband felt horrible that we got the nice guy in trouble.
We will eventually return in the future because of the food food is fantastic, but the service from the owner was horrible.
In the mean time, I'll stick to Kotta Sushi Lounge on Lebanon and Toll.
Service refused due to large waiting party – This is my first time to do this, but after 3 years of enjoying Sake Toro, spending good money during each visit, we were refused service and hurried out the door due to a large waiting party last night.
My wife noticed Casey (the owner and chef) watching to see how fast we were eating. The order was slow getting to our table and we thought no big deal, they are busy. After we did received our order, my wife ordered a new roll. Several minutes later, the waiter showed up with the ticket, saying they could not serve the additional order.
So we left......never to return. It's a shame, but not servicing a long time customer and making us feel second rate to the waiting party changes our opinion of this establishment.
Go and enjoy the food, but be prepared to be treated as we were, depending on how busy they are.....
Sake Toro is the best sushi north of 635. – I swung by this place after a friend dragged me to Stonebriar mall in Frisco. This made my night! Their sushi is amazing! I had bonito sashimi and some stellar chef special rolls. This is worth circling that horrible "Frisco Square" to get a spot. In fact on my next visit i'll be willing to walk a bit to get there. Sake Toro kicks some serious ass people.
Great Sushi but service is lacking. – The sushi has always been wonderful and the cocktails are great. The only issue I have is the service. It seems as if the sweet lady who is THE waitress, is completely overwhelmed.
Awesom sushi; Terrible service – We have been to Sake Toro several several times and we repeatedly go back ONLY because the sushi is so awesome. Every single time we have been, the service is absolutely terrible. When you go, be prepared to wait a while to be acknowledged when you walk in the door. Then, when you finally do get seated, you won't know who your waitress is. There's about 3 that all seem take care of everyone and no one communicates. Just be prepared to wait forever to get drinks, appetizers or anything that doesn't come from the sushi bar. But, the sushi is so fresh and so amazingly good that's the only reason we go back.
Delicious and Intriguing – Went there with a friend. Waited 10 minutes to be aknowledged and sat :(. Already ticked off. Then We had to flag down a waitress 10 more minutes later to get out drinks. Then Had to flag em' down again to get our order. Waited 15 minutes for appetizers and 30 jus for our sushi. There were barely any people there by the way. But the food was soo delicious. I would go back but only in hopes that the wait wouldnt be as horrible. Maybe they were having an off day?
KC is an artist!!! – There is simply no other way to put it, the sushi at Sake Toro is not only amaizing but truely creative and imaginative
