This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Lafayette. I have always received good service, whether it was for take-out or dine in. The crunchy snow crab roll is absolutely astounding. I would keep going back just for that roll. Definitely has the most interesting and best-tasting sushi rolls in Lafayette.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. Tonight, the food was okay. We had the big katuna, crunchy snow crab, menage a trois and pork katus. The service needs help. She brought out the wrong sauce. She didn't seem very attentive. She didn't know the rolls.

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 brought us one of our rolls. It was the dime... 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
