We've been eating at Sawa for many years (since it opened)...And while they make some of the best specialty sushi rolls in the area, over the last 2 years we've noticed the prices skyrocket and the food quality diminish.

Now they've discontinued our Sawa card, which had about $80 left on it.

The staff is very friendly but they can't control the kitchen...

We ate our meal at the restaurant and also ordered 2 dishes to go (1 sushi, and 1 hibachi). The hibachi came out first, but it was missing the soup and salad. The waiter went back to get the missing items but we still waited another 20 minutes for the sushi.

Sad...

We have eaten at Sawa in Eatontown a couple of times and both times we felt like we paid too much for average food. The staff is nice, atmosphere is ok, but the food is average at best. The teriyaki chicken was on the bland side, the chicken looks like it is frozen strips of chicken that was warmed up. The second entree was lobster and steak. The steak was tender but the lobster was a little on the fishy side. Overall not a horrible experience, just not an exciting dinner for the price you pay.

One of the best Hibachi and Sushi places in Monmouth. The staff is always friendly and the fact that you can get reservations for Hibachi is great.

Great atmosphere, sitting around the grill, having your meal prepared in front of you. Very entertaining and attentive staff. Outstanding food. I fell in love with their oyster shots. You can make a meal out of them alone, While the rest of my party enjoyed an array of various delicious hibachi meals I settled for soup, oyster shots and fried rice. add a little green tea Ice cream and my meal was complete. Amazing.
