Settle into sunken horigotatsu style seating with your sake at Sato Japanese Restaurant in North Adelaide. The surrounds are humble though the food is anything but. Sato's menu offers a sizeable parade of entrees, hand-shaped or rolled sushi rolls, main courses, banquets, hotpots, soup broths, rice, noodles and desserts. The kitchen prepares orders for dine in and take away. All offer great value.

Sato’s menu is a sizeable parade of entrees, hand-shaped or rolled sushi rolls, main courses, banquets, hotpots, soup broths, rice, noodles and dessert. If you need a tour guide to navigate you through then look no further than proprietor Fumito Arai. Seriously – when not at the restaurant he leads a double life as tourist advisor to Japanese holiday makers. He might recommend you start with an entree of fermented soybeans with raw tuna (natto tataki), or the nasu dengaku, a rich treat of deep-fried eggplant embellished with sweet soybean paste. I quite liked the plump pot-sticker dumplings with charming characters cloaked in gyoza sauce.

When it comes to mains, dishes are predominantly deep and pan-fried: prawn tempura with tentsuyu dipping sauce, crumbed pork katsu, glossy sweet teriyaki chicken, and beef pan-fried shogayai style with warming ginger. Do not let the solitary grilled main course of unagi kabayaki, or eel, slip past your chopsticks; and forego the usual miso soup to dabble instead in the Japanese egg and chicken consomme. Hotpots offer seafood or meats cooked in a variety of savoury stocks which can also be used for a flavourful drizzle over a side of rice with hakusai cabbage and shiitake mushroom. For the ultimate experience in taste and aesthetics (and price), indulge in a banquet of traditional “kaiseki cuisine”. It is a highly stylised procession of exquisitely prepared small dishes. Sato’s version includes the sublime chawanmushi – a savoury steamed egg custard with ingredients such as prawn suspended within its delicate softness.
