Saké Restaurant & Bar – The Rocks

Saké Restaurant & Bar – The Rocks

 

From the outside you would not be bale to guess there is a Japanese restaurant inside with the an old stone facade like many others that can be found around The Rocks area. The decor inside is as you would expect Japanese but not like a super authentic I think I am in Japan type way. The old Australian interior with big exposed timber beams ties in with the Japanese decor.

Seated at the bar with a view into the large open kitchen(my favorite place to sit in a restaurant) you can see all the chefs working away, I find this very interesting. None of the chefs seem to talk much however a constant stream of food comes out of the kitchen on this busy Sunday lunch. The food matches the decor with some dishes have an Australian influence with others just like something I have had in Japan.

Dessert Bento – I like the concept behind the bento dessert box Its always hard for me to decide what dessert to get and with this you get a selection of different ones to try. Like a tasting plate in Japanese style
