The Love River in Kaohsiung City is a very scenic and leisurely spot enjoy an evening stroll. Among the many dining options around this area, there is this 3 story building that radiates itself over its competitors on the riverside. Tokyo Sakaba is a 100 NT taiwanese stir fry restaurant that has a pretty stocked alcohol list, sake in particular. Most of the famaliar items from those "beer station", "hot stir fry" restaurants are offered here, but they are not very good renditions in comparison to the better establishments that exist in Taipei. Try some other restaurant if you are in the area because this place is more like a last resort.
The interior was decorated in a Japanese fashion and it was generally ok. However, it was really hot and they did not have a real enclosed space so it got pretty hot in the mostly fanned area. This is minus points to this restaurant as it becomes a very uncomfortable to dine long term. Also, the server to patron ratio was too low. We had a hard time flagging down servers, and even when we did they would tell us to wait a minute and then not return to us. The service down in Kaohsiung just isn't the same as the level in Taipei. The food was not up to par to the standards similar restaurants deliver in Taipei.
There is nothing special or interesting about the food here, so don't be fooled by the neon lights, 3 stories packed with people, and hot female beer servers. There has to be better options for a meal than this place near the Love River. I don't think you should come here unless it's the only option around here at 3 am.
