Tribute to the now closed Sakura Restaurant

I love this restaurant for many reasons: good value, traditional Japanese food. There are not many such restaurants in London. Everyone is trying hard to outdo one another with creative menu and charge high prices. The service may not be exemplary of a typical Japanese restaurant but it's... read more

Our meal was satisfactory for a Japanese restaurant. I was a little wary because of the previous reviews. In terms of food we chose a generous selection of sushi which tasted good. Their set menu had variety and was a lot of food for me to share. Their grilled eel was the highlight for us as it was lush. Apart... More

The quality of food and taste was below my expectation based on the reviews given by TripAdvisor as excellent. The place is crowded as I have to wait for 15 minutes to get seated. All in all, good value for money.

Good, affordable lunch menu, great bento boxes. Rather unfriendly managers but after a while you don't mind. Traditional good Japanese food. Very good location

I have been here previously and food was good. service was basic , it has never been great but today the food was sub standard and when we told the waitress she didn't seem to understand and insisted the cold soba was always made wet and soggy - really? I had to argue with her for her to get it... More

We had a nice dinner here - a very good sushi selection, an excellent tofu with tuna, and a really good teriyaki. All of this with drinks for £37 which beats my local takeaway in both price and (especially) price. It is not fancy but highly recommended in terms of price-quality ratio i particular for central London standards.

Food is average, not 'bad' but nothing special. However, their service is well below any reasonable expectations. First of all it is very slow - don't go there if you are in a hurry. Secondly, they brought me a wrong order TWICE - I ordered a grilled salmon and they brought me some kind of a white fish. When I... More

This restaurant is very authentic - my wife is Japanese and I lived there for 10 years so we know our Japanese food. The Sushi is good, tempura and donburi not bad, Yakitori very nice for London and orher things we have tried have been pretty high standard. The service is hit and miss depending on which waiting staff you... More

Imaginative Japanese food, affordable prices and open during the entire day which is a godsend if you are busy and need a very late lunch. Not pretentious in any way. The tables are a mite too close to each other but having regard to the rent they must be paying and the prices on their menu, this is a small... More
