HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–The management of Sakana Asian Cuisine Restaurant plans to reopen once reconstruction is complete following a kitchen fire Sunday they said in an online statement:
Dear all customers, Recently there was a accident that cause a fire inside the kitchen of our restaurant. We will be closing down the business temporarily. We will begin reconstruction ASAP. We hope that you can come join us again once we reopen. We thank you for your understanding and we appreciate all the support that you have given us. Thank you again, Sakana Management
An aggressive firefight at the Sakana Restaurant in the Clover Square Mall kept flames from spreading out of the kitchen and spreading to the rest of the strip mall on Sunday January 31, 2021. Fire crews from Hamilton, Robbinsville and Lawrence were at the scene. Fire crews were met with fire in the kitchen area of the restaurant and quickly extinguished the fire using an aggressive interior attack using two 2 1/2 inch hand lines saving most of the restaurant, and attached businesses in the mall. Attached businesses in the mall were able to reopen that same day and the restaurant should be able to quickly rebuild. West Windsor and Hamilton’s hazardous materials team also mitigated chemicals that reacted that were creating fumes after the fire was out.
We wish the Sakana Asian Cuisine Restaurant Management good luck and plan to visit once reconstruction is completed.
The restaurant has very good reviews: 4.9 out of 5 on DoorDash, and 4.5 out of 5 on Grubhub
