The food is fresh and delicious. Food hygiene is second to none. You can just see into the kitchen where the sushi train enters and leaves and get a glimpse of the sushi being made. Prices are quite reasonable particularly the sushi train at lunch time where the dishes are discounted over lunch. This place is very popular and its... More

I heard a lot of raving reviews from fiends and had been meaning to go for months. My brother loves everything Japanese related so I finally had the chance to take him one Thursday at 1800. I'll admit there was a little trepidation on this first trip but only because I have been recommended somewhere by friends before only to... More

We always pop into Sakura around 9:30-10pm and are greeted by their friendly staff for a take out order. The avocado, cucumber rolls are delicious as is the tofu. I also like the salmon and yellow tail sushi. Also the tempura is a must, it's crispy and delicious!!! The food always comes out super quick and the prices are very... More

An excellent little Japanese restaurant sitting on Botanic Avenue. A must for anyone looking for something a little different, a huge variety of sushi and for those who don't like seafood there are plenty of alternatives such as tempura chicken and steak. Excellent atmosphere and brilliant staff as well.

Sakura is a great little restaurant to drop in for a bite or stay for a full meal. The food is excellent as is the service, great non-alcoholic cocktails, would recommend to anyone who likes Japanese food.

We ate here because it was two blocks from our hotel and we absolutely LOVE sushi. We have sushi at least 3-4 times a month and on our 3rd day in Ireland wanted a fix. We sat at the sushi bar, which was my preference, and received mediocre, less than friendly service. Through my extensive experience with sushi restaurants however,... More

We visited Sakura with little expectation as we live in an area of London with a massive Japanese community and amazing food but my my were we surprised. We were greeted and seated immediately without a reservation. The conveyor belt had a good supply of sushi but we chose to order directly from the menu. We ordered a large selection... More
