Indulge in Award-Winning Japanese Fare at Sawa Sushi

October 22, 2014 9:02 am

Sunnyvale sushi restaurant Sawa Sushi has been listed in Forbes' Top 100 Best U.S. Restaurants. It was named to Opinionated About Dining’s Top 100 U.S. Restaurants for 2014. It earned a spot in the Michelin Guide every year since 2011. Though it’s certainly not cheap, Sawa Sushi is the place to go for an unparalleled sushi experience, locals say. However, not all customers are comfortable with the list of requirements for dining at Sawa Sushi—you’ll need a reservation, since all the sushi is prepared from the freshest of ingredients, and the chef doesn’t welcome questions about the food.

In fact, Sawa Sushi doesn’t even have a menu. Omakase is the only option, and you’ll have to trust Chef Steve to prepare a delicious meal of 6, 9, 12, or 25 courses for you. It’s okay to tell the chef if you don’t like something you’ve been served, however. Sawa Sushi is open Mondays through Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
