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

Having eaten in many Japanese restaurants in London this restaurant by far is probably the worst service I have ever experienced. The waiter who served us was rude and so unhelpful. He almost took out menus away whilst ordering as if to say he couldn't help us anymore. We ahead to speak to the manger or owner who turned out... More

I am an avid Japanese cultureist and can speak Japanese quite well. I've been to Japan a bunch of times and most Japanese restaurants I've been to in London are best described as "western interpretation of Japanese food", and are all lacking. Sakura is right in the middle of Mayfair. You couldn't quite describe it as an izakaya for those... More

I've been to this restaurant in the past and had great meals but was disappointed by my latest visit. I have been to Japanese restaurants here, abroad and In Japan so have experience of the food.The very basic of Japanese items - the rice - seemed lower standard than previously. The tempura was crudely cut and I was given a... More

I have been to Sakura many times over the past 6 years because of its location and shabu shabu. For the prices it charge, you can get so much nicer sushi and sashimi elsewhere. I'd give four stars for shabu shabu and 2 for everything else. Services, however have been consistently bad. My last experience there really put me off... More
