The last time my wife and I are here was 5 years ago. The place has not changed a bit. Even the same guy is the host. Sakura has everything you need.

Have not been to this establishment in over a year. Thought this visit was very average. Sushi was good, Love boat was tthe way to go. However, the hibachi really disappointed me. What happened? Service was good but could not get over the fact that the meal was on the bland side.

Hi Tim, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our sushi, most of our guests love it. It is unfortunate that you found the hibachi to be really disappointing. We do not often hear that, so it feels safe to say it was an off night. Please join us... More

Great traditional Japanese sushi and specialty rolls. Delicious cooked meals, such as miso cod. Soup noodle dishes are great during cold days. The Hibachi dinners are extremely popular. Worth visiting. Consistent delivery.

Went here with a couple of friends from work during lunch. The reason why I'm giving it a 3 rating is because of the chicken & service. We were taken care of right away once we came in and the food came out but once we were ready to wrap up & get the check we felt forgotten. The waiter... More

It only takes a few minutes to destroy nearly 30 years of goodwill. That happened tonight – it is shocking. Any one restaurant is not that important because there are many others, but we really enjoyed Sakura’s. I called on Monday and made a reservation for Friday at 6:30 to celebrate my daughter’s 13th birthday. We arrived and were told... More

The hibachi dinners are delicious and the chefs are "entertainers!" Our hands down favorite is Hibachi Shrimp dinner. Our kids love to dine here for special occasions, even now as teenagers. Lunch is an exceptional value and dinner is great too--a lot of food. A good value overall.

Taken by our friends as this is one of their favourite places. On our first ever visit to the US, we made our first ever visit to a Japanese restaurant. We ate at the hibachi and really enjoyed the whole experience. The chef made it fun and the food was really good. An experience to remember!
