Decent food, slow service

Had lunch here and my biggest complaint is that there were only two tables seated (we were one of them), and everything took quite a long time. Iur waiter was nixe, but forgot our miso soup and one of our rolls. We ordered Soft shell crab app: decent Salmon pizza : salmon was really fresh... read more

I was a regular here until tonight. When I walked in every table in the restaurant had filthy dishes stacked. There were only about for occupied tables. There was a smell in the restaurant of garbage with all the dirty dishes. I offered to sit at the sushi bar at 1 free space, but that did not motivate anyone to... More

About the best raw tuna I've had anywhere. Always ultra fresh dark red perfect flavor. Absolutely never fishy taste. Sushi rolls are the perfect size. I never leave here dissatisfied. I don't hand out 5.0 reviews very often.

The renovation has given this restaurant a nice makeover. However, the food is still average. The service is attentive and efficient. This is a good place to grab a quick affordable lunch.

We heard about this place from friends and had been wanting to try it so since they just re-opened about a week ago after being closed for a few months for remodeling, we decided to go there for lunch. The dining area is spacious but the lighting in the daytime is on the dark side so it was hard to... More

My husband and I are Sushi lovers and have tried all the places in Alameda, however, Sakura restaurant is our favorite because it offers an intimate setting, the food is made to order, and the customer service is excellent. Highly recommended.

Kamakura, our favorite Japanese restaurant, was closed so we decided to try Sakura. Unlike Kamakura which is real Japanese and owned, this is not. I ordered the chicken teriyaki and the chicken was over grilled and had no chicken taste. However, the teriyaki sauce was good. The service was minimal and below par if you let them know it's your...
