Always order the dinner box with beef teriyaki and it is consistently wonderful. We've tried other Japanese restaurants in town and none even come close to the wonderful tempura and teriyaki! We recommend to all of our friends and family. Plus they have green tea ice cream, which is hard to find! Our son always orders sushi and raves about... More

We opted to go here late one night after being treated rudely at a nearby restaurant. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Even though we arrived rather late we never felt rushed or as though we had imposed. Between the 6 of us we had a little of everything and all enjoyed the food. Definitely will be back!

I see the rest of the reviews on this page, and most of whom are people talking about the hibachi they offer here. Now, don't get me wrong, the hibachi is pretty good, pretty entertaining, but having going to this restaurant since, like, forever, I need to tell you that you're missing out on the secret main attraction: the sushi....

I went to Sakura for lunch, and overall, it was pretty great! I recommend getting a lunch box because it comes with Miso soup, Rice, dumplings, sushi, your choice of meat, and salad!! It was only like $10-15!! It comfortably filled us up and we are definitely eating here again!! There is not that many good sushi places around anymore... More

I took my son here for a birthday lunch. The service was great, the hibachi experience was a lot of fun, and the food was great! I will be back with family and friends!

Sakura used to be a favorite restaurant, however with the experience we had at lunch today, I will not be returning. Other guests at our hibachi table began eating rice from their plates before the meal was completed (which is fine) until the cook kept placing his cooking utensils into their plates, touching their plates and food with the utensils...

Pros - One of the better prepared mains at a habachi grill I've had. Shrimp, lobster, scallops, filet, and chicken...all cooked perfectly. The veg perfect as well. Sauces well made and very tasty. Con - The rice's flavor is not typical, nor particularly appealing to me. My companions liked it, but I thought the flavor rather stale even though the... More

My husband finally gave in and agreed to try a real sushi dinner. We have tons of sushi options but chose Sakura based on my past experiences. The staff was very gracious and attentive and the food was spot on. Unlike some establishments, they actually have all of the selections available and all were very fresh and nicely sized portions.... More

The samurai combo was perfect!!! With the samurai combo you get filet mignon, chicken and shrimp. I never finish my food at hibachi but I almost didn't leave with leftovers! Either I was really hungry or the portions were on point! I love hibachi and I've been to quite a few hibachi restaurants in and out of the country. I... More
