Awesome sushi in the desert!

We are always reluctant to try sushi away from the ocean but we found this great little restaurant on our last visit and were really excited to come back. It did not disappoint. They have lovely flavours and fresh ingredients. Highly recommended

We eat at the Sabaku in take away. The preparation was 20 minutes and all very fresh and good. The cookers are American which is rare:)

One night after hiking I fancy sushi, it was busy in the place. The food came very very slowly. When it arrives, it was totally underwhelmed. While the rolls are ok, I actually forgot what I had, it is some kind of tuna rolls, but it was better than the chicken entree. The chicken was soaked in sauce. Good job... More

I arrived on a Sunday night, probably during their peak. No problem realizing I would need to wait, probably. Two problems. There were about five of us who had all just arrived. No one acknowledged us at all. That's ok, if it's just a couple of minutes, but this lasted about 5 minutes or more. I saw at least 3... More

Sushi in the desert is something to excited about, but Sabaku isn't just great sushi for the desert in the middle of nowhere...it's great sushi relative to anywhere!! Great atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, wonderful chefs and menu...I'm going there tonight! They have vegetarian and vegan options, too.

The fish was a little mushy in my rolls but tasted pretty good. The southwest seasoned edemame was amazing! Service was super nice. Steer away from their coconut water, a little too bitter.

The food here was good, the service was okay. My personal highlight of this place was their happily named Delicate Arch Roll. It was very good and looked beautiful on the plate with its very own seaweed arch and desert flower!

We visited this place on a week evening June 2015. After 6 pm, place was packed and we got last seats available. We got our drinks fast and were able to make our orders in decent time. We (2 adults) had some salmon sashimi, 6 pc nigiri and White Rim and La Sal speciality sushi's. Food was really tasty, eel... More

I was surprised to find a good sushi restaurant in Moab, but the sushi was great and reasonably priced. My husband and I had a specialty roll (the Maze) seaweed salad and some nigiri--all excellent. Only downside--wait to be seated was long and wait for the sushi even longer. Our waitress brought us some on-the-house endame because the wait was... More
