The food here is super tasty and decently priced. It is my favorite place to get miso soup and a spicy shrimp roll.

I brought my grandson here for lunch after shopping nearby. The lunch special offers a wide variety of combinations and quite generous portions. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was great. It was a refreshing change from our typical lunch fare.

Regular visitors to Sake know what to expect. The location in a large plaza makes parking and access very easy. Staff greats you as you walk in and the excellent and attentive staff are warm and helpful. Sake offers a large assortment of sushi & sashimi as well as Japanese and Thai dishes from the kitchen. Quality is consistent and... More

After eating here several times, I can say they are consistently capable of producing quality Japanese dishes while showing a great deal of friendliness. I don't think you can call it "cutting edge," but it is a very safe choice when in this particular area of suburban Buffalo. The prices here seem entirely reasonable and noise levels inside are comfortable... More

Easy parking in a big lot. Staff was friendly and attentive. The waitress seemed happy. Food was good. I was not thrilled with the hibachi steak but the bento box was great. Fresh rolls nicely done. Wanton soon was very tasty.

If you're in the mood for sushi, here is a restaurant you need to try. I haven't always been a sushi lover ('cause I was always reluctant to order sushi as I was never certain just was was in it) and we've been going to this restaurant which is in our neighborhood for some time now. The teriyaki is always... More

The sushi was fresh and imaginative. Best sushi in the area. The non-sushi meals we had are just average.

Recently-opened, attractive restaurant in a large shopping plaza. Bento box lunches as well as entrees and sushi are available. Food was overall tasty, but not special. Service was slow. A quiet place for a meal if you are in the area but probably not worth going out of your way.

I'm so glad that we were shown this place by our family, I love sushi and this place has the most fresh sushi I've had in buffalo. The Hawaii roll, crunchy tuna and black widow roll were fantastic!
