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.

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.

Sakura is our all time favorite for Japanese and never disappoints. The ambiance is perfect for both romantic couples night out or a family evening. Located on the top most floor of a five star hotel this Restuarant offers breath taking views of the city. The menu has been recently over hauled with new additions and new presentations of old...
