I don't know if this place is still there, as we went in 2010 on our wonderful 3 week trip around the islands. The staff and service was lovely and our food was equally great - it was one of our best meals of the trip. I believe we had some kind of set menu which had a good taster... More

For the traditional Japanese eating experience you can't do much better in Wellington than Sakura. The atmosphere isn't the greatest, it can be very quiet, but the quality of food and the excellent sake's available more than make up for this. The service is excellent too. It is more expensive than the more popular Chinese or Korean run Japanese restaurants... More

Our second visit this year and just as good, if not better. We shared the experience with friends who had not been before, and they were impressed with the peaceful atmosphere and the lovely food. We all had the set menu, an exciting array of beautifully presented food perfectly fresh and well cooked. We sat long after we had finished... More

Great Japanese cuisine and decor. The food is delicious and the service impeccable. Do not, however, expect a Cobb n Co type dinner. Here you sit down for a fine dining experience and that is what you receive. Most enjoyable.

Staying in Wellington for four nights in the amazing Rydges (formerly the Holiday Inn) across the road from this restaurant and having been to Sakura with my manager on previous trips thought I’d replicate the quick and simple Japanese meal I’ve had numerous times without incident at Sakura. I was asked if I wanted a table for two, and when... More

We originally planned to go to Wagamama, and tried to book a table, but were told it was not necessary unless we had a party of 10. We arrived around 6.30pm, and it was full, and very noisy - people were queuing to get in. So still feeling like a Japanese meal, we went just across the road to Sakura,... More
