Went here on a lark, because there is a place back home in the US, of the same name, that is not very good at all. This couldn’t be farther from the case here. Authentic and DELICIOUS sushi and Japanese dishes. Can’t go wrong. Reasonably...More

The food here is lovely. Freshly prepared, tasty ingredients and extremely authentic. The only downside...maybe a little pricy...but then, as with most things in life, you get what you pay for! Strongly recommended!

Went to Sakura for a date, no reservation booked but staff accommodated us without waiting long for table availability. The first thing I noticed was how quaint the interior decor was. Very nice wooden benches to sit down at, it made the meal feel private...More

It's a nice japanese joint. Decent size restaurant and decorations. Food is tasty as well, particularly the tempura, which i enjoyed. Gyoza was okay and a braised pork dish was okay as well. Worth visiting if you like Japanese food. They have lunch specials.

Friendly staff, calm atmosphere, first class food and at a very reasonable price! Went there on Friday night and from the moment we entered till the moment we left we were treated marvelously. I recommend washing down the tofu steak with some sake!

Went in tonight for dinner with my other half to be told by the waitress would be with us now. About 10 mins later she starts washing tables down and walks blankly past our table. Needless to say we left!

Delicious! I have been on the hunt for fresh and tasty sushi, where the portion sizes are good for the money you pay (for example; not just a tiny amount of fish and a lot of rice). Sakura definitely pleased me! The spicy salmon sushi...More
