Had reservations for here on our first night in Nuevo Vallarta. It was pouring, it was a long day of travel. We were tired and hungry. The restaurant was 5 minutes from our resort, but the cab driver didn't know the place, and took us on a wild goose chase trying to find it. We actually stopped here and he said "this place is closed" - the Saku part of the sign wasn't very visible at night. ANYWAY, we got there a couple nights later. It's a very casual, no frills kind of place with only 6 indoor tables (and the outdoor atmosphere is not so great). The menu was in English, but our waiter had very limited English. My daughter's Spanish was very helpful. (Stupid me - I took French for years).
The menu had typical Japanese choices - edamame, sushi, gyoza, teriyaki. Miso soup was very large and the bowl was filled with noodles. We enjoyed the Ebi special, kamikaze, and spicy tempura rolls the most. We thought the fish tasted fresh, the food was good, and it was a nice break from the Mexican meals we were eating. NOTE: they are not open for lunch. It doesn't say that on their website, and we were really in the mood for a sushi lunch! Oh - and we liked the different choices of soy sauce they offered. There was a spicy soy sauce, and the one we all liked was a soy sauce with lime. Also liked the bright Marimekko plates!
