Sake Express recently was named among The Gaston Gazette’s Best of Gaston in 2019 — a 12th consecutive year receiving this honor from the local publication.

With locations in Belmont and Gastonia, N.C., the restaurant reached this pinnacle among four Best of Gaston categories:

✔ Best Japanese Food
✔ Best Sushi
✔ Best Take Out Food
✔ Best Dinner Under $10

Currently listed in the top three of each category, Sake Express owners Lisa Nguyen and Linda Nguyen Park will join other representatives from nominated area businesses, nonprofits and more at a celebration on May 21. Winners will be announced at this event.
