Leading the charge is Chef Yuji Sato, a native of Obihiro, Hokkaido, with over 20 years of experience as a chef. In his younger days, Chef Sato trained at a sushi-ya in Tsukiji, Tokyo, and it is here that he developed an intimate, on-the-ground understanding of fresh seafood.
Throughout the years, Chef Sato has formed a special bond with some of the best suppliers in Japan that allows him access to exclusive, rare produce that only the top restaurants can secure.
It has always been his dream to open his namesake restaurant, and Sushi Sato signifies a new dawn for him with a theatre of his own to showcase his passion and authentic creations.
Nestled within the lush foliage of Dempsey Hill, the inspiration for the design of the restaurant was drawn from its surroundings.
The feature walls in both the main and private dining counters aim to bring in the lushness with its leaf motif carvings, with the cream and pink colours representing the Sakura cherry blossom season in Japan.
