Terrific Japanese Restaurant

India's first Japanese restaurant. Very good sushi and bento boxes. Fish imported directly from Japan daily. Highly recommended.

Of the many blessings for which I'm grateful and truly appreciate is having foodie friends tell me about culinary gems I haven't experienced. So when one of them asked if had eaten at the award winning Japanese restaurant Sakura, I replied I hadn't and then embarked on a strategy to seek out this treasure at The Metropolitan Hotel. At Sakura,... More

About 50% more than I would pay for Japanese food at a local Houston restaurant. The gyoza was a bit odd (not sure what type of meat inside), and the Oyako Donburi was sadly dry (where was all of that wonderful sauce?). The rice was also a long-grain style, not good sticky Japanese rice. Oh well, at lease I didn't... More

SUMMATION: We tried all our favorite dishes from the year we spent in Japan. They were even better at this restaurant than we remembered from Japan. This was an extremely pleasant and enjoyable experience. The food was rather expensive, but well worth the cost.

I went here with a group of friends based on favorable reviews on TripAdvisor and everyone at the table found both the food and drinks to be lackluster. The decor was no-frills, but that was fine by me. And the service was decent. But the food just was not very good.

The service was excellent, my special request for Maki with Avocado was met even though it wasn't listed. The presentation of the food/table set was really nice and exceptional. The miso soup was slightly too salty but it was ok. They play Japanese pop music! Good job!

We were pleased to have found this Japanese restaurant in Delhi on Tripadvisor. We checked it out for the first time and were impressed by the quality and the variety of food here. Having moved to India, we've been looking for a real, go-to Japanese restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. Sakura offers the authenticity and freshness of Japanese cuisine, unlike... More

Few days back we visited this restaurant. The most amazing thing we have at this restaurant is, there homemade ice creams. The flavour you never heard about Black Sesame Seed, Green Tea, Red Bean & Spicy Wasabi. Just Awesome.

My friend and I decided to treat ourselves to the Sunday brunch at Sakura at the Metropolitan Nikko Hotel in Delhi – we are both great fans of Japanese food. It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet ranging from sushi to tempura, teppanyaki and curry (and a few other things I may have left out). We were quite delighted to see the spread... More
