This restaurant is casual with a relaxed atmosphere, but you would not look out of place if you dress up a little. The food is delicious and portion sizes are very large, my husband and I visited a few times and now tend to order one main and one starter to share as the meals are so large. I would... More

I've been living in Malta for a couple of years now, so I understand that service in Malta is generally a low to moderate standard. After a time you come to accept this and not to be too sensitive. But, nothing could have prepared me for the spectacle I encountered in Cafe Sakura on my last visit. I've eaten in... More

Dear PaOBrian, We thank you for your comments. We believe that we did try to accommodate your request even though it is not the norm for a client to order a main course and requests for the main ingredient to be changed ie rice instead of noodles. We do recommend that in the future you ask your waiter for the... More

I have been to Cafe Sakura four or five times and for some reason they always seem to have problems, something wrong with the electric heaters when it is freezing cold outside, or extremely slow service even when there are very few customers there, or, even worse, waiters who ignore you or literally take hours to serve you, even if...

I've been here a bunch of times and never had anything to complain about, but it seems like they have knew chefs that all they know how to do is wasabi and mayo. Went there yesterday, all we could taste was wasabi and mayo in everthing we ate. The normal rolls were extremely hot and tasteless. I hope this isnt... More

Very good food, but inside doesn't feel like a restaurant but more like a canteen. I recommend this place for lunch rather than dinner.

My team and I had lunch there recently and the meal was excellent - we waited a while as there was 7 of us but it was all cooked from scratch and really fresh, and delivered at the same time. Good service, food and price -definitely going back!

When the food hadn't arrived at 7.20 we first called the restaurant who told us the driver was on his way and in the area.

I am not sure what has happened, but the quality has changed since last year. It was always a delight going there, but recently, the service has gone a but slow and the food doesn't have that fresh taste like it used to.
