Usually this place is great but my last visit I will not be coming back. They super skimped me on my carry out order that also had weird flakes that aren't supp...ose to be on it so I called in a new order to exchange it. After waiting 30 minutes for my new order they never bothered to make it and then refused to remake it and tried to send me back with the order I was unhappy with. I ended up having to just take a refund as they refused to correct the situation. See More

Spouse and I have been going to Sakari for several years now (definitely since before it expanded). In that time the place has gone from good to great. The spec...ial rolls are well thought out and fun to try. The house rolls are fresh and tasty. Great rice! I won't eat spicy tuna roll any place other than Sakari. See More

Love love the happy hour pricing---but today we were charged full price for our sake bombs. When we pointed it out, the waitress seemed a bit annoyed, and took ...$1 off the drinks---I'm so confused that we were charged $3.50/drink when they are advertised $2.50 here on this fb page and at the tables. I am a regular and this has never happened---what gives?? See More

By far the best sushi I've ever had! Everyone I introduce to Sakari feels the same, even the ones who "hate" sushi or have had a previous bad experience ends up... glad they gave it a second try, and ends up loving Sakari as well.
The owners are friendly and the staff is knowledgeable. You must experience it all for yourself; it's sushi heaven for me :-) ♥

We've enjoyed going to dine in for fun atmosphere and good sushi. However, we ordered sushi and was told it would be ready at 5:20 and it did not come out of th...e kitchen until 5:47. Nothing was offered to us while waiting and no apologies given for long wait. Will not order carryout again! See More

Very classy place and always great service. They have the best bleu cheese stuffed olives ever and of course the sushi is dynamite. No pun intended.

Love this place only place I can get the lady to go eat sushi. Bartender (Wes) always remembers us even if we haven't been there for months. Have always had great food and service.

Tried it for the first time last night and it exceeded all of my expectations. The owner was wonderfully entertaining and our server was very helpful recommending a number of rolls that all turned out to be amazing. Definitely will be returning soon!

Best sushi in town with a fun atmosphere! They have steak rolls that my husband loves as he is not much of a sushi fan! We come here usually every other weekend and being in friends and family when they come to town!! 5 stars!!!*****

I will never go back. 8/8 times nothing changed. Just because it's closer than Taki Japanese steakhouse does not make up for their horrible service and ditsy st...uck up workers. I don't always like to be in a restaurant for upward of 2 hours.. and when mentioning anything about it, takes even longer. Thanks for having to call out for a refill any and every time I'd like one! ������������� See More

I would give five stars (because the food is excellent) but for the second time someone left the phone off the hook making placing orders for pick-up impossible.... It takes driving to your restaurant and telling you this to get the phone working. I mean, I guess it's worth it because the food is good but I think I'm going to start looking at the menus at other places because I don't want to waste 30 minutes driving over to tell your phone is off the hook before being able to place my order when I really should be able to just call and place an order. The food is great but please teach your staff to hang up the phone after using it so people can get through to place orders.

I'm editing this review and adding stars because even though you forgot part of our order on top of the frustration of the phones having been off the hook, the situation was handled in a great way by management and staff.

This place is great. Their rolls are amazing and it's a must when I'm in town. Iowa Surf 'n Turf is my favorite roll. Yummy!

Love the food always fresh and good service. My daughter has even become quite fond of the sushi there she also loves the goyza alot. And to top it off I always get great service and always have a blast whenever I'm at Sakari.

THEE absolute best Sushi place in DSM. I have known this place since it was just a small single room restaurant where we would singe Karaoke after close.

ATMO...SPHERE: the best way to describe it, is FUN. The staff can be as serious as you need. Sit at the bar and you'll laugh, joke, and do saki bombs with the bartenders. I left on multiple different tours and jobs. I returned and it was like I never left.

STAFF: Owned by Jason and Sang, which you are almost guaranteed one will be there when you go, are very knowledgable of knowing who has been there before and who is new. If your new, you will feel welcomed like family. If your a return customer, they somehow remember anything you spoke about previously from sports to family. The wait staff attend to each and every need you have. There is also enough that each waiter/waitress can easily get to their tables.

FOOD: I have had the luxury of LIVING in Japan. I can attest that the rice, sushi, sashimi, and dinners could easily compete with Yoshi Hashi's in Okinawa, Japan. Google it. Check out the Dynomite Shrimp or Crab appetizer, which alone is an "ORALgasm".

PRICING: Daily and Happy hour specials are always in play with both rolls and drinks. Even at regular price, everything is extremely moderate and appropriately priced. By having a great staff and atmosphere they don't have to gouge you like other places, as they know you'll return.

Overall rating is extremely high. Only thing you REALLY need to know, come early. You'll find that myself and hundreds (if not thousands) of other people feel the same way about this place. Come join "the family". Just stay out of my two seats at the bar every other Thursday :)

Best sushi in the Des Moines area, best service every time we go, and very involved owners that really treat everyone like it's a small town eatery.

Worst service ever! You have to wait at least an hour for service, while watching the staff DRINK ALCOHOL with customers! I definitely do NOT recommend this restaurant!
