Saké The Rocks: Sydney's Iconic Japanese Restaurant

12 Argyle St, The Rocks NSW 2000

The iconic flagship of the Saké Restaurant & Bar fleet is housed in an elegant, split-level heritage building in The Rocks, with original sandstone features and a stylish crowd-pleasing ambience. Accents of Japanese design are present in a beautiful wall of bright-coloured sake barrels, and eye-catching, whole-of-wall artwork featuring an enchanting Japanese, tattooed girl. As serene as it is vivacious, Saké Restaurant & Bar The Rocks has a loyal following and a deep-rooted reputation that continues to attract first-time diners and gastronomic adventurers.

A 30-seat private dining room and two smaller semi-private rooms, a communal banquet dining area, casual bar-side tables and kaunta seki, or counter seating, overlooking the sushi bar offer versatile spaces for group events and gatherings.

Premium produce and precise Japanese craftmanship underscore menus that are designed to be shared and impossible not to enjoy. Super-fresh, sustainable seafood, including MSC-certified whole Bluefin tuna, Hiramasa kingfish and Glacier 51 Toothfish, is sliced and diced by meticulous sushi masters into made-to-order delicate sushi and sashimi, intricate starters and main courses, and exquisite desserts. Centuries-old, Japanese robata grilling is another central element of each menu, delivering sensational, charcoal-smoky flavours to everything from responsibly sourced meats and seafood, to the humble, locally sourced vegetable.

Menu options include à la carte and banquet menus, as well as the revered style of Omakase dining, where guests leave themselves entirely in the expert hands of the Chef.
