Amazing food and amazing customer service. I went with my sister and her family and they made sure to accommodate us all in the same area. My 2 year old niece is fascinated with this place and they even brought her a special dessert for her. And the entire staff came to say bye to us. I will definitely come... More

Costa Rica has wonderful sushi and Japanese food restaurants but Sakura has, by far, the most traditional options in San José. Where else will you find Natto? There bento dishes are also varied and serve generous portions. There Niguiri is delicately prepared and there sashimi is very fresh!

I have been here several times. The food is always good. The sushi is first rate. The sushi menu offers a large selection. They also have a grill where you can have your favorites cooked in front of you. Good atmosphere and staff make for an enjoyable dining expeience.

Everything in terms of food was pretty much ok except the price. On top, there was hardly any atmosphere at 7:30 pm. Matsuri is way better in terms of quality vs price. I wouldn' t go back unless forced by circumstances

We have eaten here numerous times and each time something different has been a let down. The first time we wanted to sit at the teppan grill and we were informed since my girlfriend wanted sushi and i wanted the grill we couldn't sit at teppan grill and had to sit at table. They were seating a party of 4... More

I have been to this restaurant recently, and it was as good as i remember it. The food was very good quality and the service was spot on. We order one of their dinner menus which is a very good value considering that it was a very good meal. All the plates of the meal were right next to each... More

This authentic Japanese Restaurant has excellent service and a tranquil atmosphere. The food is always fresh and delivered with the utmost service. I've eaten here dozens of times over the years when I visit Costa Rica (from Colorado/California), and it's my go to place near Santa Ana/Belen. It's priced moderately, as you do pay for great food and service, but... More

Service was pretty good, but food was just so so for Japanese food. I ordered the tempura and it was a heavy egg batter not light and crisp like I prefer.

We had two great meals here and were really delighted both times with the quality of the food! The restaurant wasn't very crowded so our service was prompt and the "hibachi" chef was masterful. Given US prices, I felt the meal was reasonable in cost.
