Sushi Sakai 鮨さかい 3rd visit — really loved how Sakai san could to express bold flavors from both the Shari and the neta yet managed to maintain perfect balance. My first visit last year was one of the top sushi experiences of the year, this time was close. Quite extensive selection for wine pairing although some didn’t work very well.. •

Sushi Sakai 鮨さかい 2nd visit — my first time here last year was probably the top sushi meal of the year so I had high expectations but too bad the chef was not in today, so the chef from the second shop Gahoijin upstairs filled in. The first couple of otsumami didn’t start out particularly strong but the meal got better and better since. The nigiris were top class even though not as striking as the first time. But overall a very good meal and great value. •

Sushi Sakai 鮨さかい 1st visit — I’ve been looking forward to trying this place and the meal exceeded my expectations in every way. They flow of service was flawless and the food was impressive. Most mind blowing nigiri was the maguro chiaigishi (血合いぎし), a perfectly intense mouthful of extreme umami explosion, while the temperature, texture and acidity of the shari keeps everything in balance. Possibly among the top 3 sushi experience of all time. •

A brand new sushi restaurant, belonging to the fledgling Sakai group. One Sakai’s disciples operates it with all the verve of a new beginning.
The otsumami are excellent and the nigiri well formed, the shari identical to Sakai’s.
This you g man will places, one to watch.

Third meal in less than 2 years. This Tabelog Gold and now GM three star restaurants is certainly a benchmark in Fukuoka and maybe even in Japan.

It appears to me that the shari changes with the seasons so to better harmonise with the various netas the season is offering. The otsumami is world class and never fails to surprise.

For me an absolute must when in Fukuoka

Tabelog Gold restaurant in Fukuoka. Third meal here, the quality of the ingredients are impeccable and the execution flawless.

The dining room designed by the country’s top sukiya-zukuri architect Maeda Shinji is breathtaking and stunningly beautiful.

This is one of the sushi places where the Chef gives a felling as if you were in a church during service. Hushed voices, stern observation from the Master himself. As the paying customer you asked yourself why you submit to such a treatment.

Nevertheless, the classical Edo-mae sushi meal with nigiris and tsumami small dishes was great, maybe that is... More
