Welcome to Saiko Sake and Sushi Bar. Our space is beautiful and contemporary with exposed ceilings, local artwork and a striking mural. Enjoy sunsets and all of the action on University Avenue from our outdoor patio. In North Park we are very serious about sake, and we select only premium sakes from regional breweries in Japan to complement our progressive Japanese menu of appetizers and sushi. Our wild caught local fish is FRESH and hand-picked daily by the Chef.

    Wonderful as always!! They take such great care of us. Sake and sushi are amazing. Roboto and rainbow rolls are among about favs. But don’t pass up their house edamame!! This is a great place to try various sakes. The typical hot sake served at most sushi restaurants does not even compare to the variety offered here. Try a flight in a recommended flavor profile and you won’t drink the other again. Thank Saiko for being so awesome!!

    Really great food and specials. Service was abysmal. We were offered check and dessert after having finished only our first roll; getting both rolls and sashimi took 50 minutes, and server had to check with the kitchen 3 times total. We ran out of water and had to get our own from the bar. Just really poor overall service.
