I would recommend this place for sushi newbies and lovers it provides a great experience and a great menu with helpful and friendly staff you can't go wrong. Just beware of portion sizes the set meal for one can be eaten by 2 comfortably :)

It's a restaurant that is not as good as it would seem. The space is beautiful inside, but without air conditioning in August!!!. Outside you can see the Sliema Strand but the tables are very instable.. we had to ask several times to have something to block our table. The service is not so good.. there was only a good... More

Yesterday when we were there for dinner in the evening the waitress mixed up the order and we were a table with two. I had to sit and wait for my main course while my friend... More

Let me just mention that I am not reviewing the sushi here. I am not a sushi eater and from what I could see it looked fresh and interesting. I had a chicken dish and dumplings. The chicken noodle dish was a bit tasteless and extremely oily. Not something I care to put into my body again. I was also... More

Pleasant environment, clean, open plan and outdoor seating if you fancy it. We like it here as the food is great, the price is great, the service varies - but this is seasonal staff, so you need to allow for the odd mishap. In short, thirty euros gets a good quantity of amazingly tasty, well presented and beautifully made sushi... More

I live in Malta and have tried almost all the sushi places on the island including the very expensive ones and I always end up returning to Sakura. It's the best sushi i've ever had, as well as the other dishes I've had have always been delicious. I actually get cravings for it all the time meaning I've been there... More

We ate here a few times over 2 trips to Malta. Most recently, we ordered a combination sushi platter which was served with half the sushi having cooked meat in it. We asked the server for fish instead and were told we shouldn't have ordered this dish! We then spoke to the manager who also suggested we should have ordered... More

Loved the food and will return. The terrace sea-view is a great asset as well. Waitress helped us to choose from the menu and the food photos helped
