Wild Salmon or Farm Grown? – The question of the day when I visited Sake. The waitress had no idea what I was talking about and neither did the sushi chef. So then I ask if they have any blue fin today. Again, I get puzzled looks from the staff. LOL. Some sushi bar...
Good Food, Good Price – I've been eating at Sake since it opened some years ago in Franklin and even though I have the rare occassion of a run in with some not so well done food, it has never been anything to warrant not coming back. The prices are reasonable and even though service may take a bit longer than your average sushi resturant, at least I always know it will be fresh.
I highly recommend this place, even though the smallness of size and simple decor (along with the staff conversing regularly in japanese) may distract some people, I find it no distraction at all.
Poor Service – The sushi is good if you want to wait 30 minutes to an hour!! And they aren't even busy. There can be one other table and still you have to wait. The pricing is high too. Every other sushi place in Nashville serves you within 10 minutes!!
Not cheap sushi - expensive rice! – SLOW to serve - QUICK to disappoint! The two rolls we got were ALL rice. One of them (sushi pizza) had so little crab, that it wouldn't register on a digital scale! We called the manager over, SURE that the chef had mistakingly left it out...He said "Oh, Yeah, that how we make it!" and he promptly left our table. The Michael Crunch Roll should be called the Michael "Aint got no Fish In It Roll"...They don't have the cheapest sushi in town - they have the most expensive rice!!! Shameful
Thumbs Up! – Clean new building. Not much to look at on the outside or inside. But if you want the overall best sushi for the money in Nashville or this side of the Mississippi this is the place. Best rolls in Nashville. Sushi is not bad either. The "best prices" of any Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Tennessee. The only thing lacking is the service. A little slow.
