"They do everything well here, even the big chunks of aubergine... And all that lets them down is the claustrophobia of the room and the dimness of a waitress who could tell us nothing about any of the dishes on the menu" READ REVIEW

"So the loo, the noodle machine, the food shop, the décor and the wine list are all good, but not as good, perhaps, as they think they are. The food, however, is very, very good. And really, that's the only gimmick anyone ever needs." READ REVIEW

"The food at Saki is good, but at £60 or so a head it ought to be. You could eat at least as well for a third of the price in any neighbourhood New York Japanese restaurant." READ REVIEW
