Rolls are very ricey and not much fish. The tuna sampler was double the portion for sashimi. Not my favorite

But wen you make a reservation make sure to tell the host you don’t have rush at time of eating (if you have time)
Reason ? I made reservation 4:30 we get on time, we order slow because we have time and try to have a good time with the family, but around hour later we decide to order more, at the time waiter took our order and bring the food, 10 minutes later the host approach and ask we have certain time because they have another reservation in our table ... I decide order the bill and pay.
NEVER COME AGAIN !!!!! we were customers for a years ... SORRY !!!!

This is a great restaurant. I recommend it highly. The sushi is very fresh and the presentations are unique. Our waiter was very helpful and passionate in explaining the various menu options and the flavors of the many different sakis. Plus the bill was cheaper than what we pay at home. A must-do if you are a sushi fan visiting Coronado.

OK spot if you are out on Coronado Island. Would not recommend going out-of-my-way to get to it.

Food is awesome , The regular bartenders Ryan and Ricky are great , personable , make great drinks , customer friendly , the wait staff has a nice mix or long term employees , and they do a good job training new people , service is always excellent , hostess is sometimes an issue , not friendly , does not remember regulars , or make any extra effort with customers that are in on a very frequent basis ,

Nothing beats sitting outside on Orange Ave watching the crowd in Coronado. Add great Sake and some amazing sushi and you’re in for a outstanding dinner!

It took me 3 tries to eat at Saiko. Booked at 530pm on a weekday with over an hour wait. Takeout sushi also had an hour wait on another try. I would highly recommend reservations if you have more than 2 people. Happy hour pricing is pretty good for Coronado. The service however was poor. I was never brought water nor was I asked if I wanted a second drink. I was stuck with one beer the entire meal and the server barely checked on us.

The appetizers were not impressive. I swear the shrimp tater tots had the smallest shrimp I have ever seen. The sushi was tasty but not worth $14 a roll. We were very unimpressed with our dining experience and will most likely not be returning.

Saiko Sushi has been one of our favorite on the Island, until this summer. Not sure if there are new owners, new chefs or a turn over of employees. We went twice in one week hoping that the first time was just a fluke. Nope, terrible service both times. Both times our food took forever, they messed up our order and the sushi it self was just ok. Back to Yummy Sushi or OTB.

Usually a favorite spot for us but the blackboard special was not good the fish tasted like it had been siting our under a lamp and my husband said it was like gas station sushi. Usually amazing but this trip was a bad experience.

We had a lot of fun in uptown Coronado at Saiko Sushi. What a beautiful location and atmosphere. The younger kids that cleared the tables didn't seem to be having a good time but everyone else was upbeat and happy.

The rolls and blackboard special were amazing. It would be nice if the server let you know the order of the fish and description of the blackboard special when delivering the meal.

What a nice neighborhood place. We visited from Seattle and went to Saiko twice. The saiko roll was excellent; I recommend it with the orange IPA draft. They also had chopstick helpers which kept our kids occupied.

Second time visiting this spot, most likely won't be a third. The service was so very slow and the wait staff was very hurried in taking order, but not very fast in anything else. We were there to celebrate a birthday, waitress never acknowledge it, but watched her take birthday dessert to two other tables ?, They were out of 2 of the drinks we ordered, was served Sushi 10 min. before our hot dishes came to the table, and they only got there because the hostess noticed we weren't eating and asked why? She went and got them. Oh and the Orange Chicken is VERY spicy which it is not listed as such on the menu, We even had to wait to flag down someone to get our check. Sushi is great but rolls are expensive, recommend coming during happy hour. Maybe it was an off night but with so many mishaps, it wouldn't be worth risking going through again just to get Sushi.

This is our "go-to" sushi place on Coronado. Excellent variety, and they try to use sustainable fish in their sushi. We were happy to sit with Oscar at the bar, and he created an amazing vegetarian roll for us, along with some other great offerings. All the sushi chefs are excellent. Nice sake selection, and a nightly dinner special for those who prefer cooked food.
