Saké The Rocks celebrates a decade of modern Japanese decadence

Saké Restaurant & Bar is celebrating a decade of delivering its signature, super-fusion Japanese food from its up-market location in The Rocks, Sydney where the remarkable Saké journey began in October 2009

In honour of its 10th birthday, Saké The Rocks will showcase the delightful modern riff it brings to Japanese cuisine at an exclusive seven-course dinner, paired with champagne, wine and Japanese drinks, on Wednesday, 16 October at 6.30pm ($179pp).


Hosted in the restaurant’s upper-level, private dining room – a stylish ensemble of sandstone, heritage timber and modern decor – 40 guests will be wooed by Saké chefs and brothers Yosuke Hatanaka and Shimpei Hatanaka and their seven exquisite dishes that represent some of Saké’s biggest hits of the past 10 years.
