The Sakura is a well established Japanese restaurant on the second floor of the Kempinski Khan Palace Hotel. The food is always very good and the service very friendly and responsive.

The restaurant is on the second floor of the Kempinski hotel. But it is a very good Japanese restaurant (not just a hotel restaurant as a backup).

We had a very good meal at Sakura. The atmosphere is quiet and tranquil, despite being in a huge city. Each of us ordered something different, and each of us was pleased with his/her selection. Prices seemed fair for the items we ordered, and service was very good. We had a large group and enjoyed ourselves.

Nice place with pleasant service. But the food is just average for what you pay. There are other places that you can try for the same prices.

I love the Sunday brunch. Fresh milk for starters! I haven't found proper milk in Mongolia since I moved here. Generally a nice selection of food and fresh juices.

Second time I have been and was very disappointed with the food, wine and service. We waited close to an hour and a half for our food and when it came it was stone cold. The prices are quite high for Mongolia and this made the standard of food even more disappointing. The steak was quite tough, the scallops under... More

If you are going to eat at the Kemp hotel, avoid the poor brunch offered on sunday and go for sakura. The food is good, fresh, tasty. It is a bit pricy but one have to remember that salmon and tuna must be imported. Service if OK and decoration quite nice.

We arrived to find that the restaurant was full. We were saddened, but we were led to another area on the that floor where lo and behold was teppanyaki. This was a tiny little place with an "L" shaped grill and about 10 seats surrounding it. We were seated, coats taken and hung, then the service was non-stop from there.... More
