The food scene in the Vallarta area continues to improve so sushi is not hard to find. Saku is a very good choice if you are in Nuevo Vallarta. They have a broad selection of typical Asian dishes fro miso soup to sashimi (limited choices) The selection of rolls is extensive tempura and nigiri less so. We had 3 rolls... More

We found Saku Sushi & Bar by accident as we were driving through Nuevo las year. We came with a group of 8 of us with some trepidation because no one was in the restaurant last January when we went, but we quickly learned that the staff was incredibly solicitous, the food was excellent and the chef was very creative...

Short story, I taste food in many restaurants and I love to share my experiences and help fellow food lovers. This restaurant resembles a unique gourmet style of Japanese cuisine no other restaurant has. I confidently recommend this place.

There rolls have to much rice and not enough filling. The rice didn't taste like sushi rice at all. The service lacks.. And old ginger. The fish was fresh but barley got any on my rolls. Won't be back..

This "restaurant" is located on the rooftop overlooking the ocean, so it is a great place for a drink or hanging out. The service we received was excellent both times we were there. The food was okay... it is sushi made by Mexican catering to American, so don't expect anything authentic. The seating is a bit funky. There isn't really... More

Dishes well presented. Portions according to expected. Wide selection in menu options for sushi and rices selection. We had some comments about noisy music and manager immediately took action. All personnel with excellent attitude and almost a smile in their expression.

I absolutely love Jesus(or Chuy) the waiter. He is why the rating is very good and not average. He is personable and friendly and is very relaxed which is contagious. I enjoy the cold sake here and any sashimi. As for the rolls. Don't bother, it is a bunch of rice and cucumber and barely any fish or avocado or... More

Huge rolls with a regional twist on thing we eat at home plus a few items I've never seen before. I had some very tender octopus and everything was very fresh tasting. The staff was very friendly and their service was quick. One of our servers didn't speak great english but his english was much better than my spanish! The... More
