A Fresh, Exciting Take on Sushi & Asian Cuisine

Elegant, airy and refined, SAIA - named for its location at the corner of Sunrise and A1A - provides an intimate and harmonious escape for lovers of fine Asian cuisine. Sushi selections are artistically crafted, at once creative, colorful and tantalizing, adding a new and thrilling dimension to Sonesta’s “Food Is Art” approach to dining. Other menu items include inspiring and flavorful interpretations of Southeast Asian specialties. All with views of the Atlantic Ocean and swaying palm trees through our floor-to-ceiling windows.
More than a restaurant, SAIA is a celebration of Asian cuisine. Its open kitchen lets you glimpse the inner workings and perfected techniques of sous chefs working the teppanyaki grill. And with many plates served family style, you’re sure to enjoy a variety of fresh and exciting flavors!
