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). Go there to eat delicious sushi for a good price, for a good quality service and taste a piece of... More

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.

First we had a reservation at 8 o'clock and we had to wait till 8:30 for our table to be ready. Afterwards we waited for more than hour and a half for our food which is unacceptable. Other than that the food was excellent and pretty large for its price.

It doesn't blow your socks off but it is probably the best in Leuven. Friendly staff, good food and a fair price. As I stay in Leuven for work very often, this is one of my regular visits

As I work in Leuven, I often go to Sakura in order to enjoy lunch. My personal favorite is the Temaki, but the sushi tastes great in general. The staff is really friendly every time I go there, which is something I really appreciate. At lunchtime it is not really necessary to make a reservation, but I you are planning... More
