Premium Sake

menu_top_2Sake, Japanese rice wine, is very palatable.

Today I would like to present four different kinds of Sake to you.
To you who never tasted Sake before, I would like to introduce this delicious beverage at Sakura Restaurant. To you who already tasted Sake, I would like to recommend a special kind that goes well with your special dish. The flavor of Sake harmonizes perfectly with the characteristic taste of Japanese food.

Mr Hiroshi Numata, a renowned Japanese Sake sommelier, made a choice of Sake brands that go perfectly well with our dishes. There is nothing against a good wine, but some time you might try a Japanese Sake.

Your truly ! Kampai !
