I have been wanting to try out the new Japanese restaurant at Cammeray Square for a while. The first time I went with TLG for lunch they didn't have any high chairs; the second time I was meant to go with my mothers' group but I was sick on the day. Finally with my brother and TLG we paid Sake Sake a visit today.
My brother and I liked the decor - it's modern with a Japanese touch.
Aren't the lamps cool? They reminded me of an art installation I saw earlier this year.
I liked the multi-layer seat cushions with various Japanese fabrics (they were comfy too).
With a small child in tow, I did not order any sake and opted for a tea instead. The tea I chose was called "Gorgeous sencha" ($3) - a strawberry-flavoured green tea. Very soothing and I enjoyed the slight sweetness and the beautiful aroma.
We ordered two dishes to share between the three of us. The first is the Sake Sake Bento box ($28).
The bento box was full of goodies - 6 pieces of sashimi, 4 mini California rolls, chicken teriyaki, tempura (including 2 prawns) and orange roughy fillet with tamago. It also came with miso soup (no rice but they gave us a small bowl for no charge when we requested for some). TLG enjoyed the roughy and some of the chicken, and my brother and I took care of the rest. They were all good without being spectacular.
We also ordered a large sushi platter ($34).
There were a few pieces missing in the photo because I started eating too soon. The fish and scallops were fresh and sweet.
Here's a close up of one of the sushi pieces.
My brother commented that the ginger was very good and I agreed.
We were served by a delightful Japanese waitress, who was very smitten by TLG. He is going to be a ladykiller one day!
Overall I thought the meal was pretty good value. I will reserve final judgment until I come back again and sample more dishes and of course a few glasses of sake!
