My wife and I were staying in a hotel close to this restaurant in Sliema so we decided to give it a go as we have dined in Japanese restaurants in Spain and in the UK.

Sakura restaurant is in the north part of Sliema, very modern and comfortable atmosphere. I had 10 pieces in total: 2 temakis, 4 big makis and 4 small, for 16,5 EUR (without drink). The service is efficient and friendly, the food came quickly (less than 10 minutes), and the presentation was elegant. They also delivery or you can order as... More

Sakura is just the perfect place for sushi/ Japanese food lovers like I am! This restaurant has it all; Friendly helpful staff, warm environment, impeccable sea view and most important the food! Nevertheless, have never tasted a better coffee, since it's the ideal place to discover new coffee tastes. Super!

With such lovely weather in Malta, outdoor seating is a plus point for any restaurant here and Cafe' Sakura doesn't fail in this respect. Parking might be a problem, situated as it is on Sliema front, but the quality of the food and the setting makes it more than worthwhile. The manager was considerate enough to pull down one of...

Been there many times and it never fails to impress me. Tried many other local sushi places and I must say that Sakura is unbeatable . Freshly prepared sushi and great service. Sushi deluxe platter accompanied with some sake well designed for couples. Keep it up :)

This place used to have very good sushi but they must have replaced their chef's or they are under new management. The sushi tasted like bad fish so we couldn't finish it.
