Sato must have been one of those few restaurants that still withstands the new wave of restaurants/ cafes and fast food trends that is blooming around in Adelaide. The boy and I used to frequent this place many many years ago and decided to venture here once more when we met up.
The menu had not changed much over the years and after a quick browse, we ordered our usual combination set of a mini platter of appetizers, nigiri and sushi, chicken skewers, chicken teriyaki and okonomiyaki (pictures below). The price had certainly gone up by a bit. The boy and I both ordered chilled green tea which costs about $3.50 per glass and were shocked because when we got the bill, we were charged an extra $3.50 for getting a glass refilled. Please do be careful with ordering drinks here. The boy and I were very disappointed both in terms of the prices and the deteriorating food quality.
This had been a very painful blogpost to write about because as much as I do not want to say anything bad about any restaurant, I believe it is only fair to be honest when I do restaurant reviews. There are a lot of good ones out there and for the ones that are lacking a bit, I do sincerely wish improvements can be made.
