Me and my husband came to Va beach for his birthday as a get away, neither of us had every stay up here so we used the yp wedsite to look for a nice place to eat and at the time the Sai Gai had 9 good reviews so went there. The lights on the outside of the building were burned out and we drove right past it and had to turn around. Then once we got there and was seated, we ordered our food. The cook was very rude and had an attitude through the entire time he was cooking, he messed up on 2 of the 8 orders at our table. My food was very over cooked, my husbands was under cooked and all together it was a horrible dinner, and honestly the food was worst than the service we left both our plates full and on the table when we left. I would not recommend this resturant to anyone!!
I LOVE THIS PLACE, I ALWAYS HAVE! I USED TO LIVE DOWN THE STREET FROM IT, AND WENT THERE ALL THE TIME. THE SUSHI AND THE HIBACHI IS FANTASTIC. THE SERVERS AND SWEET, AND ON POINT WHEN IT COMES TO SERVICE. EVEN THE SUSHI MAKERS GREET YOU! I WISH I DIDN'T LIVE SO FAR AWAY FROM IT NOW. I WOULD STILL GO THERE ALL THE TIME. I USED TO GO THERE SO OFTEN THAT WHEN THEY SAW ME, THEY'D WOULD SAY "USUAL ORDER!" I'VE STOPPED BY ONCE SINCE I MOVED TO CHESAPEAKE AND IT HAD BEEN OVER A YEAR, AND THEY STILL REMEMBERED ME. IT'S NICE TO SEE THEIR SERVICE DOESN'T CHANGE. THEY ARE VERY FRIENDLY... THEY'RE HIBACHI CHICKEN, AND STEAK IS DELICIOUS. BUT I LOVE THEIR SUSHI MORE THAN ANYTHING. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT. GO THERE CHECK IT OUT! THEY HAVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEATING, REGULAR TABLES AND TABLES THAT LOOK LIKE YOU'RE SITTING ON THE GROUND (BUT YOU'RE NOT) AND THERE'S A SEPARATE HIBACHI ROOM. PLENTY OF SEATING!! AND GREAT FOR FAMILIES AND LARGE PARTIES...CHECK IT OUT CHECK IT OUT IT'S YUMMY!

Sai Gai ROCKS! I've tried about 6-7 other sushi restaurants in Norfolk, VB, and Chesapeake over the past 4 years and I continue to find that Sai Gai has the most consistently fresh, delicious fish around! I'm there about twice a month and take my three year old daughter. The owners know us by name and welcome us enthusiastically every time we go in. The atmosphere is very low-key and casual, but you could easily go for a nice date or family outing. The fish is buttery and super fresh every single time! The portions are worthy and the rolls...tiger roll, bon roll, fuji mountain, dancing eel are superb! Never a crowd, consistently good, reasonably priced...you're missing out if you haven't tried it!

The restaurant is amazing ! The Habachi dishes are cooked to perfection by an exceptionally talented and extremely funny chef ; ) Everyone enjoyed the experience and I could not have chose a better place to enjoy my birthday. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is the best restaurant I have been to in Norfolk and VA Beach during my holidays here and would be delighted to return again.
Happy Eating !

I've been to Sai Gai several times with my boy friend and the food is just delicious. I tried Sushi at other restuarants and they cant comapre nor do they even beat Sai Gai. The Staff is very freindly, I go to Sai Gai so much that I'm now one of the regulars. The wine is amazing, The prices are FANTASTIC!!! The service is OUTSTANDING!! The booths are really cozy and romantic and the best part about it is there is something for the entire family... The entire resturant is NON- SMOKING which is wonderful. I just love Sai Gai the food is excellent and i will continue to visit because they keep their customers very very satisfied!!!!!!

Once you've tried Sai Gai's sushi bar, you'll agree they're the best. You'll find interesting, unique, and absolutely delicious sushi creations here, like nowhere else. Try the Tornado roll, or the Virginia roll, among others. All of their 'specail' sushi rolls are quite unique and delicious. We've tried other area sushi bars, and yet we keep coming back to Sai Gai. And if you like Japanese tepanyaki, the grill at Sai Gai can't be beat. The prices are premium, but well worth the extra cost. You won't be disappointed.

I love going to Sai Gai. The staff is very pleasant and very helpful. They take the time to notice regular customers. When it's been a couple months since my last visit, they always notice and make me feel as if they missed me there. The service and quality is what you would expect to find in a much more expensive restaurant. The atmosphere is very pleasant and usually a quiet place. It can easily accomodate groups of up to 8 or 10 people. Overall, it is an awesome little restaurant and most definitely my favorite Sushi Bar.
