My Experience as a Waitress at JC Sakura

I was employed at JC Sakura for roughly 4 months. I enjoyed working there the first few months. Even to today, I love the food, and I can guarantee it is being handled properly; however, I'd really like to advise others to reconsider tipping the restaurant. I had heard rumours in the past but as I... read more

What at terrible service 2 hrs to place two menus of which were not completely filled. This isn't the first time it has happened the waiters/waitress ignore you and walk right by you. We had to leave due to time restraints, which I wonder if it wasn't in their plan. I felt it was high time people are made aware... More

I went with my spouse, we were immediately seated, I am a huge sushi, sashimi fan and I kept hearing rave reviews about the place. Disappointment, the moment you order you feel like the server is judging you, tries to change your quantities and it takes forever to get your food. One you do, the rolls are so thick with... More

I went out to JC Sakura with 3 of my best buddies, We got seated at a table as a group of four and immediately decided to order our food. Once we were all done ordering it took about 30 minutes just to get a single plate of food out so we were constantly waiting on our food, We had... More

I was a former employee at JC Sakura and I have nothing good to say about this place. The manager is the main concern. He constantly threatens the employees of stealing tips when he keeps all of the tips to himself. He is always yelling at employees and doesn't treat them properly. Many people complain that the staff is slow,... More

Mostly pretty fast and i've never been actually disspointed in the food, good if you want to try a little bit of everything. Always a good standby for us for sushi and japanese food.

Went there with a group of 5 adults and 2 kids. I was mainly occupied feeding my baby so when it was time for me to eat, I ordered 2 rolls and the rest of my party ordered dessert. The waiter came by and took the ice cream orders only with the excuse that the rolls would take longer because... More

What a great place and fast service. I love the people at this place, they try so hard and do so well at doing their job. First things first..... The rice here is THE BEST anywhere in the Sault. I know other place's have been established for years here, but it is beyond the best. As soon as I get... More

Have been here a couple times but not overly impressed. Food seems somewhat bland compared to similar dining establishments I've been to. Not bad but not great either considering prices, and most staff speak no English. Needed an interpreter to figure out what some dishes were. Best to go for lunch rather than dinner.
