Sagami is a hidden family run jewel, located 10 minutes from the Ben Franklin Bridge in South Jersey in a nondescript setting that many consider to be the best sushi restaurant in South Jersey and possibly in the entire state.
From the decor to the dishes served, this is as authentic Japanese as it gets. The atmosphere and decor are traditional Japanese with low ceilings, dim lighting and solid Rosewood tables, and well as the subtle details like the kimono-clad Japanese waitresses sporting flip-flop sandals with white socks, and the beautiful soy-sauce pitchers and delicately painted wooden serving bowls.
On any given night, your apt to see many Philadelphians, including Philadelphia hockey players dining here.
While the decor is not elegant or flashy, the food is the reason you come here!
Sushi chef Shigeru Fukuyoshi serves well prepared dishes with fresh ingredients and is a master at raw fish preparation. Entrees may be ordered as a full dinner with soup, salad, side dish, rice, and a dessert, or a la carte, which is less pricey
It's BYOB so bring your six-pack of Sapporo beer or a bottle of sake to temper the wasabi and to complement the meal.
Suggest making reservations, it always crowded! Reservations at the sushi bar are not required.
The BYOB setups are provided without charge. Reservations required on weekends and long waits are still very common.
