Sachi is a new Asian Bistro located in Murray Hill. The menu created by Pichet Ong (Multiple James Beard Award Nominee & Culinary Consultant) and Andy Yang (Creator of Rhong-Tiam, the 1st Thai restaurant to receive a Michelin Star) provides a taste of Asia with an upscale interpretation of classic Asian street foods, sashimi and sushi.

The menu shows influences and inspiration from various Asian countries (China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) and is designed to be shared family style. Sachi’s drink menu includes specialty cocktails, sake, red, white and plum wines & beer that compliment the unique dishes offered.
