More about Tokyo Kitchen Sakae, Brighton

Tokyo Kitchen Sakae’s Church Street premises boast a striking interior and a sunny courtyard for alfresco dining. The sushi and sashimi here are all made fresh to order – it’s well worth the wait for what might be some of Brighton and Melbourne’s best value and most artful nigiri and raw fish sculptures. Kushiyaki skewers are another popular option among diners looking for quick and simple Japanese fare to accompany a drink or two, and those watching the rise of Nepalese cuisine will notice that the famous momo dumplings even make an appearance on the menu.

Tokyo Kitchen Sakae’s light and healthy salads like the simple tofu wakame salad or the heartier grilled Wagyu beef salad offer a fresh taste sensation, while deliciously deep-fried gyoza are handmade at Tokyo Garden’s Brighton restaurant and are again great with a Japanese beer or chilled sake. If you’re a Melbourne foodie trying to tick off as many Asian restaurants as possible, order up one of the chef’s specials. Fresh oysters are spiked with a special lemony sauce or given the tempura treatment, while multigrain, inside-out California rolls come served with grilled scallops. Unmissable is the traditional salmon nan-ban tsuke, deep-fried salmon and a simple selection of fresh vegetables served with a vinegary soy sauce.
