I have been going to Sakura for a few years. The quality was never great, and I have eaten sushi from CA to NY, but it was okay. We went there the other night. The waitress spoke almost no English, making it difficult to explain our food allergies or to ask questions. Finally I wrote down what we needed, specifically... More

Look, this place is a Japanese restaurant in Athens, GA. Anyone expecting to be magically transported to Tokyo is in for a disappointing experience and complaints that your hibachi chef didn't provide a lively enough show is pretty weak. Give the guy a break, he probably works that grill 70 times a day. All that said, the sushi here is... More

Sushi was alright but their steak and chicken combo meals are phenominal. Really nice atmosphere and bathrooms. Sat at table and it was very quick service.

Not a fan of hibachi in general but the sushi is really good and the decor is a big surprise. Surprisingly good for a very odd location.

We went here for my daughter's 13th birthday, expecting a true Hibachi grill experience. The cook was only marginally talkative. He kept a very straight face. He did not attempt to entertain or wow the crowd and there were 3 children at our grill. He could have interacted and made it a fun experience. I might as well have sat... More

I realize that different people have different opinions, and can have different experiences, even on the same night. We agree with @mumiller1 comments entirely. Our server Michael was very good. We went on a Thursday night and it was 'slow' so of course that will usually result in receiving doting service from the staff. I do not know what kind... More

My wife and I wanted to treat our son to dinner and thought that Japanese would be a real treat and entertaining. Wrong! I guess our hibachi chef was probably the least entertaining I have ever seen . Total lack of excitement. The food was adequate but not as good as I came to expect at Japanese restaurants. We went...

Don't let the strip mall location deter you from coming in. The interior is clean and updated- not like a lot of the tired looking hibachi steak houses. Our chef was entertaining. Our server was attentive. The meal was delicious and fresh tasting. We'll definitely return!!!

The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere is fun, however serving size needs to increase dramatically.

When eating hibachi, there is the expectation that you'll get 'a show' as well from the chef. Ours didn't really do so--did the egg in the hat trick, but didn't engage us in anything, like the sake squirt or even catching broccoli or a veggie in our mouths. We were surprised by that, as the other chefs seemed to be... More
