I would say that the makeover of its shop and a twist in menu had changed my impression on Sakae Sushi. As I stepped into Sakae Sushi, there was a comfortable feeling as the environment was well lighted with its brown theme color and seemingly spacious with reflective mirrors all over the walls.

Not only that, the benches are well arranged along the Sushi Conveyor Belt, facilitating customers to pick their desire sushi on the go as well as giving customers ample of room along the walkways! So different from the old Sakae i used to go in Westmall!

With the use of technology, every bench was well equipped with an Ipad mounted to the side of the table. It was really a good idea as it minimized the number of times the servers had to come over our table to take the orders as well as ordered items are listed in the system too.

Not only the dine-in diners are well taken care of but also those who are having take-away ! Fantastic implementation of Self Ordering Kiosk!

This was my first dish from the new menu, Ika Okura, Lady's finger with squid. I thought it would be interesting to have something like this but it took me quite sometime before I can finish them up. Ladyfingers have mucilage in nature and this gluey substances was so strong that it binds the small pieces of cut squid altogether in a string and makes it very hard for me to handle the dish especially with the use of chopsticks.
However, it was a real good experience and an eye opener.

Mekajiki Sashimi aka swordfish sashimi was always my favourite when it comes to sashimi. Due to its springy and chewy bites in nature, I can never fail to order one plate. These thick fleshy pieces of raw fish adorn with shredded white carrot are my sashimi fix for the night. If you look close enough, you will notice that the usual bag of reused old looking ice pack is missing from the plate! I realized the plate used was different from before as the ice was hidden within the base of the plate.

I can see that Sakae had put in alot of efforts improving its environment as well as improvising its ordering menu. Even with the implementation of technology into the business, i still felt that there are rooms for improvement in their service. I called loudly and raised my hands to a server who was just a meter away from our table but there was no response until she suddenly turned alert and responded to my request for billing.

Note to diners:
(1) Sakae classify the price of their sushi in color plates with the red plate as the most expensive then the pink then the colored.
(2) When you are done with dining, stack your plates up according to the color stickers plate on the table. This will ease the calculations easier for the server who will indicate on the slip of paper.
(3) Take that slip of paper from the server and proceed to the counter for payment.
