The first Japanese Restaurant of Porto Alegre

The food is really good, but as it is the first of its kind, the place needs a renovation. If your more for the food that for the place thats a place to go.

Back in the 80’s, the family started the Sakura, nearby Ceasa. There I learned to taste and relish Japanese flavors. Thirty years later, Japanese restaurants are popping up in every corner and people learn to eat Japanese food from these “fast-food” joints. We need to set a standard here. Sakura is it!

I found Sakura to be too expensive for the food they serve. For the same amount of money you can eat at a "japanese fast food" (Sushiaki), where the food tastes much better. Service was not the best either.

The ambience of this restaurant is very nice. The quality of the food is very good, but it lacks a bit of a variety on the sushi menu. The service was excellent! Very good restaurant overall.

Sakura is very original. The food, the decoration and the old style rolls. For me, as a fan of California Style Japanese food, not as good as other options in town. Besides, for many people, the best Japanese here in Porto Alegre

Sakura is a very good and traditional Japanese restaurant. They serve sashimi and sushi on big boats, but also have traditional Japanese dishes. It´s a nice ambient, and good service.

The food is very tasty, but the service is slow. So, be prepared it will take one hour to get what you ordered.
