The best sushi place i've been to, thanks to the amount of fish in each piece (not only rice, but 50-50). The price is low if compared to many other sushi place; we always go there for sushi from brussels. Of course it's very crowded, you might have to wait a long time for a table!

Was initially surprised at the large number of Japanese style eateries in Leuven but only reflection it is a university town and Japanese food is very popular with the younger generation. We ate at Sakura twice and found the food to be authentic and good. Can recommend without reservation.

Very good fish quality, and the complex sushis (tempura) are very well done ! The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the wine, that is quite pricy for an average bottle opening like a bottle of water (bottle cap).

A few weeks ago I decided to lunch at Sakura Sushi & Sashimi, because of the predominantely positive feedback it received here. However, I found the sushi below average. Not very tasty and no fresh ingredients. We were seated next to the kitchen and could see that fish came from prepacked boxes. As mentioned before by another reviewer, service was... More

The sushi in this place is extremely good, definitely one of the best I have ever tried. The waiters are nice and friendly. Unfortunately, one of the main disadvantages of the place is the slow service. Once I had to wait hour and a half for the sushi, which was quite unpleasant experience....

If you have ever been to Japan don't go to this restaurant. This restaurant is an insult to Japanese culture and people! (bad service and bad food!)

I'm a sushi lover from a long time and this was the best sushi I had..really fresh, every portion was full of fish and not just rise like in most of the place. Price feasible

the sushi at Sakura is fresh and lovely, and it's not at all expensive! sometimes when we show up early for takeaway, they offer us some prawn crackers for the wait :) definitely the best in Leuven in terms of price and quality.
