The food quality and quantity are simply amazing for a sushi restaurant. Expect to have a full meal with a 25/30 euros budget per person. The only thing I have to note is that they are rather slow, so normally the wait time is more than half an hour. The good thing is that this means that they do all... More

It took over 2 hours from our reservation to when we were served. The food was good, but not worth the wait.

First, if you want good sushi and have a lot of time, this place is good. Fresh, quality sushi abounds. That's the only good. Otherwise, we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation and served our food 90 minutes after ordering. Those two fouls are unforgivable in a restaurant.

The restaurant is rather small, but has an outside terrace of about 4 tables. So, do book as it gets filled up quickly. The sushi is always of good quality and service friendly. The only problem is that they have so many take-away orders they can't follow. So if you order take away expect it to be ready half an... More

had lunch at Sakura, known locally for its quality sushi. The food definitely lived up to expectations, with a very nice assortment of sushi served with plenty for each of us. We all took the single-person serving sushi menu, and everyone was definitely full after finishing the tray - if they could finish it, that is. The only downside, really,... More

I went there one time and have loved the food and staff. Quality of the food and attention to detail was great even though i am not fussy. conveniently located in the city center. Highly recommend it if you love sushi. The price was decent despite being on the pricy side.

I know this restaurant since many years...and I have been trying a lot of sushi restaurant in Leuven: this is just the BEST! I would suggest the sushi sashimi menu...you get many different pieces and really good price. Lately it became really popular so I would suggest to make reservation to be sure to have a table. Only a small... More

One of the better sushi places in Leuven, tastes great. Their "sushi-sashimi menu" is very varried and excellent, highly recommended. (The "1 person" variant of the menu is enough for 2.) My go-to sushi take away place in Leuven. One downside: they don't always have the take-away ready by the time they say it will be ready.

In the last years I've visited this place many times. Almost every time I would grade it as excellent and occasionally as very good... a must do if you love sushi...
