This review pertains to Sakura at 360 Mall, despite the fact that this mall has the best food court and dining areas amongst all the malls in Kuwait, the decoration is out of date and the chairs are old, dirty and not comfortable, this is compensated by a good food and services

We sat outside and I was with a local Kuwaitee and so this seemed to facilitate things. Setting outside was nice but a little noisy as it is close to the main Arabian street. Sushi platter was great and the volcano salad was very good. Service was attentive.

Knowing Sakura, we usually avoid eating in the restaurant due to the setup of the restaurant. Something about the ambiance of the decor just doesn't speak luxury. I'm glad they finally serve imported bottled water. The menu gave us hope that the food has improved, but I don't feel it has.

Sakura is a pioneer in introducing Japanese cuisine in Kuwait for more than 20 years. Sakura is the Japanese term for flowering cherry trees that produce beautiful cherry blossoms for a short time each spring. I have not been dining here for over 10 years and I am back now for an authentic Japanese experience. The staff at 360 mall... More

We came here as a family twice, and in both visits, the food have always been consistently excellent in terms of taste, even the presentation of food is superb. Highly recommedable is the crunchy maki, never fails. This restaurant is one of the restaurants you can really recommend. Service is good too, however, in one occassion, we were made to... More

This is the first time I have ever visited Sakura. And I definitely was not disappointed. The Salmon Crab Avocado Salad is the best I have ever tried. Their Rolls were amazing. The Beef Tepenyaki is cooked perfectly. And to top it off, the desserts were to die for. This is a place where I would not hesitate in recommending... More

I've been a lover of Japanese food at an early age when we traveled to Singapore. Perhaps, it was the thought of the revolving conveyor belt with different sushi and sashimi to choose from or simply just the unique way of presenting its taste to your palate. Ever since, I've been intrigued on discovering different varieties of the Japanese cuisine.... More

Sakura is located a little way inside the 360 mall, tucked into a small avenue of eateries. The place looks small but functional though that shouldn't stop you from investigation as the food is quite delicious. My wife and I were shown to a very nice table in the middle of the open dining area and offered an iPad which... More
