Desert Sushi - it's good!

Yes, it's good (not great, but good). We enjoyed our dinners very much. Tried different things for dinner - two nights in a row. All kinds of speciality rolls, some very unique. Also had regular rolls which were good. A bit pricey, but worth it - given you're in the middle of the dessert... read more

Excellent place for sushi! We went here based on their rating on TA and we agree, it is very, very good. Seems odd to find good sushi in Utah but we did. We sat at the sushi bar and chatted with one of the owners/chefs. It was a great evening and the sushi was excellent.

Who knew Moab sushi would rock it? It does. I've eaten sushi all over the US and world including Japan. They had a wide range and all very well prepared. Ate early enough to avoid the long line around 7 ish...thank goodness!

We are back in Moab and this time Sabaku was open. Hubby is a sushi .. Well not a snob but 'fussy' with what he eats and this place got his thumbs up. The miso soup was a it 'watery' for my taste and the suomono salad cucumber was sliced too thickly but that's personal taste also. Edamame were fresh... More

Quaint little restaurant just off main street with great atmosphere and wonderful service. Something for everyone on the menu and it was all good. Two adults and two teenagers were full and did not break the bank, will go back on our next trip.

Having lived near the ocean for many years, I was skeptical about eating raw fish in the desert, but it was delicious, fresh, beautifully prepared, and served with a smile. Treat yourself!

Had to drag my husband here, who was skeptical on sushi in the dessert. And he left agreeing it was quite good. One of the more kid friendly sushi places we have seen in a while - very accommodating with a great kids sushi menu. Salmon and tuna were highlights Only downside - the chefs choice items were a little... More

Just had dinner with 2 adults and son (13), didn't have a reservation. Only had to wait for five minutes before seated on the bar which probably is the best place to sit as you order directly from a chef which is yours while you're there. As we never went to a sushi restaurant before, we just asked our chef... More

I'll tell you that I was very leery when a friend suggested that we have sushi during our recent mountain biking trip to Moab. I am SO glad that I left my inhibitions at the door. This is phenomenal sushi. Do yourself a favor and stop by Sabaku Sushi while you're in Moab. You'll be glad you did.

Great people, amazing sushi - really cool experience. But a little pricey for what you get. I guess they have to fly the fish in so that could be where the expense is.
