Went here in February, the food was very bland, overcooked, tables are sticky and the bathroom was gross. Needs revamping, I would not recommend

I've eaten here several times before and normally it's been good, but not tonight. I was seated immediately and my server showed up right away. I ordered the Teriyaki Steak Deluxe, which comes with the Miso soup and a salad. Both were brought to my table within a couple of minutes. The Miso was good and hot and the salad... More

Bought a Groupon offer for Sakura. What better way to try out something different. Nice decor and dining area. The hostess & waitress were friendly and our service was prompt. Large variety of items to choose from including sushi. Decisions, decisions. I had the shrimp and steak dinner. Steak was good and cooked to order. The shrimp was overcooked to... More

The worst service and quality of food was horrible. This is the worst customer service I have ever had. Even after I spoke to the so called manager Kathy who was so rude, no apologies at all. I order the Steak Teriyaki which was cold the veggies were salty and over cooked. I ask if I could have my food... More

Great pot stickers. Wife enjoyed coconut chicken, delicately flavored. I had hibachi steak and chicken (prepared in kitchen and brought out, not table side). Both very good. Reasonable prices and with a Groupon coupon, a very good value. Got in and out quickly which was good as we had much to do that evening.

I had a friend in town and we wanted to grab sushi on way to Crowders Park. We waited at the front for a few minutes before any sign of a hostess. When she came to the front to greet us, she was friendly. It took a another few minutes for a server to greet us. We ordered 3 rolls.... More

While this was a strip mall restaurant I thought I would review it because the seafood is better than a recent restaurant in CT, where the prices were higher and you would have expected the fish to be fresher. They feature bento boxes but also have an nice fish and chips meal that I would recommend.

The quality of food was terrible. Had to send back both plates of food. The steak was undercooked and the chicken was very fatty. Ended up having to get one meal replaced. Not worth going to again.
