Terrible service, terrible food

Visiting lafayette. We ordered tiger roll, rainbow roll, Philadelphia roll, tiger roll not fried. An hour and 39 minutes later we asked the waitress to please bring us some rice, we were starved. She brought us 1/8 bowl of sushi rice. Then they brought us someone else's food. Finally they... read more

I've had sushi from many places in Lafayette. Sakura is one of the best. The service is nothing to write home about.

We went with a large group. The gratuity was outrageous. The service was terrible. It took an hour to get our food. Then it came out & they did not know who ordered what. The rolls fell apart when you picked the peices up. They just dont care. Never going back. The rolls were mediocre at best.

I've seen some other reviews and have a hard time believing that they are genuine. I started visiting Sakura about 6 months ago and can't get enough. It's a bit expensive for my taste, but the food is the best I've had anywhere where Sushi is concerned. I usually sit at the bar and order, and each time add something... More

Dropped $30 and was still starving. Their "Big Daddy" specialty roll is nothing of the kind. It couldn't curb the appetite of a 6 yr old. It cost $15. I don't mind paying for good sushi, but the quality was chinese buffet at best. The rainbow roll had pathetic scraps of fish barely dangling over the rice. After $30 for... More
