Nice food and some beer

Food is ok, and it's easy to get a beer here. I especially like the nice attitude of the people that work here, and how you can get a beer without questions, although for 800 rupees

the restaurant matches european standards and sadly outmatches european prices. Still, I would recommend for a different evening with quality food. When I was there, they did serve beer as well.

The restaurant is located in the Marriott hotel so it takes a while to get to but is one of my personal favorite sushi restaurants worldwide. The waiters are attentive, the menu is extensive with a variety of rolls to choose from. There were four of us so we decided to order about 8 different rolls and share. We started... More

Definitely the best Japanese in town. Good ambience and excellent food. The service is usually quite slow though.

It happens that we were invited the first week at the Sakura and really enjoyed it's authentic Japanese cuisine, we ate raw fish and we didn't get sick. As a... More

Sakura is the one and only japanese cuisine restaurant in Islamabad. It is an excellent little place inside the Marriot Hotel and the best california rolls I have had in Pakistan.
