Sauri is a Papuan language of the Indonesian province of Papua, on the eastern shore of Cenderawasih Bay. It is spoken in Sauri-Sirami village, Masirei District, Waropen Regency.[2]

Sauri is lexically similar to the East Geelvink Bay languages and presumably belongs in that family, but is too poorly attested to be sure.
