Sakura is one eatery that never disappoints. It has always maintained its food quality and taste while providing quick service. It is my only go to place for Japanese food in the city.

Sakura is THE place to go for Japanese food in Karachi great authentic fresh food!! Although the food is priced on a higher side, the staff is well trained and very courteous.

The food here is always delicious. Prices are bordering on exorbitant though. Downside of being one of the two places in Karachi that serves sushi.

Prawn Tempura is legit here! Other Japanese restaurants in Karachi that we've tried do not make good tempura, so if you are craving for one, go here. Resto ambiance is also nice. They also have teppanyaki, which we liked as well.

Very fresh ingredients. Can't go wrong with your starters and sushis here. For the main course, I believe the tastes don't excite me. I find it's a struggle to enjoy them. Not saying everything is unexciting, most dishes are, especially those with noodles and udons. Visit again? Yes. Recommend? Yes Service is good. Venue is excellent. Decor is a nightmare.

The best Sushi serving restaurant in town. The moment we think of Sushi the only name that comes to mind is Sakura. By far the best Sushi in town.

After also trying out other famous Japanese restaurant in karachi, i can easily say Sakura at Pearl Continental Hotel offers the best Japanese cuisine in Pakistan. best teppanyaki and sushi. courteous servers and pleasant ambience. The place is always busy so do reserve ahead if you want to enjoy fresh live cooking at the teppanyaki counter...highly recommended.

We go to Sakura a lot because one is sure that we will have great food , bubbling ambience yet still be able to have a conversations comfortably. The sushi is superb , at par with any international award winning restaurant, The teppan yaki is strong on garlic and oilier than other Japanese restaurants. Sashimi tataki the Makki rolls all...

I would be wrong or go to far out to say that this is as good as it gets for Japanese food down town at the intercontinental hotel food is good & shushi is acceptable over a nice place to have a good time defiantly visit here every few months I would recommend any one visiting to try it out...
