I can be very short, went there for my birthday, sushi and sashimi was excellent (not the best ever, but very very good), at a very competitive price. Returned home very happy. Service can be a bit slow when the restaurant fills up.

First visit here after having heard a lot of good thing. We took the sushi menu which was priced very cheaply (almost half price compared to other sushi restaurants in Leuven). The sushi was good, not as good as some other places but certainly high quality (with a few very great ones in there). Service was very friendly, we had... More

Best sushi in Leuven. Price - quality is the best of the city. Interior can be a bit noisy but you can eat outside which is nice.

One of my favorites sushi in Leuven! The service is very good. The fish is always fresh and the price resonable.

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). 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....
