Excellent food, Poor Service – 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!
Sushi At It's Best – 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.
Wonderful Sushi experiences – 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.
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.
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.
Sushi that melts in your mouth in a casually elegant setting in Richardson. – The Scene
Indigo fabric dividers and river stones reminiscent of Zen gardens mark the entrance of this local favorite. Constantly abuzz with activity, 10 wooden tables offer room for small and mid-sized groups in a lively dining-hall style environment. Dozens of money-cat figurines line the shelving above the sushi bar which seats approximately 30. Hanging tapestries, antique sake barrels and fresh flowers decorate the space. Blackboards on walls feature calligraphy and abstract markings, while boards behind the bar highlight daily specials.
Diners take note of rotating specialty appetizers posted to the blackboards, like maitake mushroom or niku tofu with beef, which enhance the menu's regular offerings. The ankimo monkfish pate is avocado-like and buttery in its richness. A popular standard is the sauteed scallops. Cuts of fatty tuna and red snapper sashimi are generous. Favorite rolls include rainbow and spider, while the scallop roll offers its own unique flavor and textures.
Best Sushi period. – 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.
Horrible Service – 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.
Best Sushi place yet! – 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 chefs....like 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!
Reservations a MUST – 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!
THE best sushi in Dallas – 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!
Best place in Dallas! – 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!!!
