“Great Japanese in Bahrain, one of top in the Gulf”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Known this place for several years, Sato has maintained its quality of food in its authentic Japanese cuisine. Charming seating area, very cozy. Try their seafood platter, one of the best I have had. It's located in the gulf hotel, easy access and many available parking spots. Rich menu, reasonably priced. Highly recommended for sushi and Japanese cuisine lovers.

Unforgettable experience. Me and my husband celebrate our 7th year anniversary. I can not forget the great taste of food and a very accomodating staff especially the Manager Ms. Ruth. Absolutely I will come back again for our next anniversary.

“Great Ramadan Lunch Option”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I love the Japanese approach to restaurants, and Sato tics all the boxes. Great ambiance, attentive service, and delicious food. There are some adventurous options on the menu, but I went with a set lunch and was very pleased. Prices are high, but on par for 5 star dining in a luxury hotel. Seems like a fantastic place for a group to go and enjoy a nice dinner experience. I'll try and make that happen soon.

“Sato : A Superub Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

As a frequent diner in Bahrain restaurants, Sato is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is excellent with reasonable prices (considering it is a 5 star restaurant), the atmosphere is very friendly and the service is generally good. The variety of seating arrangements (Western, Japanese, and the teppanyaki) is another feature of Sato that provides a pleasant dining experience.
