I just want to say I love the food at Sakura Chaya! The sushi is fresh and always fantastic. The waitstaff is excellent as well. The only problem I have is when I order my food to go. The employees they have answering the phones are often rude and not well informed. Example...A couple of weeks ago I did not... More

Had the Tepan-Yaki lunch special with beef, chicken and shrimp. Good value, but only two shrimp! My wife and I love this place. The parking lot is always full. The food is always great. She always takes home leftovers, and I can never get enough.

James, the maître d' was very helpful and accommodating. We had a birthday party dinner for 10 people and everyone enjoyed the good food, chef and waiter. James brought out a special caterpillar roll to celebrate the occasion and the food servers all came out to sing happy birthday Japanese style. When eating here with a group it is important... More

The lunch special combo for $10.95 was a nice deal. It includes beef, shrimp, and chicken.... And comes with soup, AND salad, veggies, and fried rice. All the food was very fresh and cooked well. With this special the beef was a pretty small portion but lean and tasty. It was not a chunk of steak... It was thinly sliced.... More

Since living in Asia, we've always appreciated good Asian food. This ranks up there. Good family place. Watch out though, the portions can be big.

My wife and I try to dine here at least two to three times a month. The lunch special is fantastic and reasonably priced. The O bento box is also an excellent choice and very filling. Service is great. The sushi bar is usually very busy along with the other dining choices and bar. You won't regret giving this restaurant... More

I met my friend at this restaurant because ever since she introduced me to their bacon fried rice, I can't get enough of it. I've only ever eaten in the bar and had this dish so my experience is limited. Unfortunately, this time the service was not so good. The bartender couldn't seem to get our order correct (which was...
