We like Sakura for fast japanese, however the salads are way over priced and the hibachi meats are overcooked most of the time. The sauces are excellent though and that is what keeps us coming back!

This place has great food and for a better price than anywhere else around the area for the same type of food. Service is good but not great and it could use some remodeling.

This is not a fancy Japanese restaurant, just a very simple and good place to get Hibachi style food. They keep it simple which means it is also cheaper. Don't expect the Kanki experience but you skip the Kanki prices too.

For the money, it's hard to beat this little place. My lunch experiences are always great - I normally get the Hibachi Chicken with grilled veggies over noodles and rice... with a cold crisp salad included. I love their ginger dressing (on the salad) -...More
