Like, my favourite restaurant EVER!

This place is amazing: from the friendly staff to the amazing food to the cool decorations to the Japanese pop music. I love everything about it! Sit at the sushi train if you can. I love the crab, cucumber, omelette and seaweed sushi, my friend recommends the seaweed salad. The miso soup is served... read more

My partner first brought me to Sakura for a birthday treat as he knew I loved Sushi, a previous birthday spent eating Sushi in London revealed he didnt so this was a very kind gesture from him. We opted for the set menu so he could try little bits of sushi but have a main course he knew he would... More

Stopped at this place for lunch as I arrived in town and hungry I agree with the other reviews the food was ok and only ok. I ordered a noodle dish, not to much vegetables etc. And The serving size on the small side. I have Japanese food regularly at home and have to say I've had better. The service... More

If you're a fan of Japanese food, this place is a must-visit. A friend recommended Sakura for good Japanese food. She was right. The miso soup warmed me up on a chilly day. I ordered the Unagi boiled rice (like a don buri bowl). It was perfectly cooked and delicious. The kim chi I took from the sushi belt was... More

Went here for our Anniversay Meal on our trip to Belfast. We really wanted a Teppanyaki table meal - but you can't have everything! The absence of the chef cooking your meal in front of you did not, however, reduce the quality of the food, nor our enjoyment. We were very pleased with our meals, the staff were very friendly...

The portion sizes of sushi were very generous and fresh as were the main course dishes, lovely staff very informative and helpful! The sake was very nice and at the right temperature and very well priced. Overall a great meal and a great evening! Highly worth going to! :-)

First trip here, as was at my sons request, not his first trip as he quiet enjoys it. I really can't put forth an enthusiastic review as nothing really impressed me or disappointed me. Starters were not served at the same time, allowing my wife's and mine to cool while waiting for our sons. All were alright if not memorable.... More

The restaurant is very modern inside and the service is excellent. There is a "Sushi train"in the centre, but we chose our own table and selected our meals from the huge selection of authentic Japanese delicacies. A good wine and beer menu also.

I visited this place for dinner twice with a couple of months between visits. When you come in it looks interesting because of the conveyor belt which constantly brings food around, so that's cute if you've never seen it before. At both visits we were seated at the sushi bar/conveyor belt. Somehow I enjoyed my first visit more than the... More

I had been curious about this place for years and finally went last night. We went for the three-course set menu, which wasn't all that cheap (I think they would do well to do two-course deals) but seemed to make sense considering the price of a lot of individual items on the menu. For starters my wife had teriyaki chicken... More
