There's an air of fun and occasion that makes Saké a popular choice for celebrations. From the enthusiastic chef greetings on arrival to the staggering selection of sakes by the glass, carafe or bottle, spirits are high even before the share plates arrive, and private dining rooms tucked away at the rear cater to the truly boisterous. With party-hearty treats such as crisp salt and pepper squid, and tempura popcorn shrimp with the kick of yuzu kosho-spiked mayo, the good times roll. Lettuce leaves with sweet, buttery cubes of miso-marinated toothfish and threads of crunchy rice disappear quickly, as do rosy strips of Darling Downs wagyu with sautéed shiitake. One dish you won't want to share is the Nihon Nemesis - an intense chocolate cake with raspberry sorbet, matcha and a hunk of honeycomb. The main dining area mixes large and intimate tables, while fairy-lit cherry blossoms and river vistas make it a fine option for date night.
