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!

We made a reservation through Time To Eat 2 hours in advance for sushi delivery at 7pm. 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. When the food still hadn't arrived half an hour later, we called Time To Eat who contacted Sakura... More

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. I used to go there specifically for the fried rice, which now changed in some sort of... More

Maybe we were very unlucky or something but my eyebrows truly rise at all the good reviews here. Never had such a poorly tasting. dry, rubber-like teriyaki duck. it was awful and I think there was something in it. There was this dark spot on the meat that looked really suspicious. I also noticed a guy at the table next... More

I had some sushi and the best Chicken Teriyaki in my life here. I highly, utterly, recommend it with all my might! I'm not gonna write a lot: It was classy, the food was tasty, the people were friendly... It was *perfect*! I will visit this place every single time I'm in Malta!

Up there with one of my worst dining experiences. The only reason this is not one star is because the sushi itself was nicely presented and tasty. However, service was the worst I have encountered. We waited 20 minutes to order drinks...and after 40 minutes of waiting for a BOTTLE OF WATER, we had to enter the restaurant and enquire,... More
