Fresh and fast

Between a pleasantly full house for a Tuesday evening and many take out orders, three sushi chefs were kept busy. The sushi was made of fresh ingredients (i sat at the bar and watched them work). Try one of the specialty rolls.

Very good sushi and friendly service. The sushi bar has limited seating but is an enjoyable spot to watch the chefs work. Very popular in the evening hours. Closed 2-5.

Fifteen years apart since I was here last and this place is still packed regularly and the standard still very high. The menu selection is great! We really liked the grilled squid, sliced octopus and cold soba noodles. The sushi selection is not as extensive as I had hoped but the quality and freshness is very good. Prices are very... More

We always enjoy Sakura even though we live on the other side of town, we drive over to the east side periodically for their sushi. While the service is a bit slow, the sushi is very reliable. My wife likes the soft shell crab and Hoosier roll. I like the sashimi, especially their yellowtail which I find to be the... More

My wife and I were in town for the Indy 500. We aoways look for a Japanese restuarant whenever we travel as that is our favorite cuisine. I did a few minutes of research here on TripAdvisor as well as a few other spots on the web and decided that we would try Sakura. Sakura is not downtown so we... More

Went to Sakura last time we were in Indy and loved it. In Indy again this year and could not wait to go back. Outstanding Sushi both times. It is crowded and they do a booming carryout business so expect a wait or try off peak times.

My favorite time to visit Sakura is on a cold winter evening. It is warm and inviting and reminds me of places I visited in Tokyo...very authentic. I think the sushi is the best in town. I like the crispy roll which I don't think is listed on the menu. One of other favorite dishes is the Nabeyaki Udon which... More

Best sushi in town, authentic and the ambiance reminds me of a small sushi shack in Japan. Definitely try this and don't judge it by the outside or the neighborhood, trust me!
