I like this place

So ok, this is a stereotypical cliché Japanese Steakhouse, where they cook on the hibachi in front of you. The food is good, nothing exceptional but exactly as you would expect. When you are in the mood, try it out.

We have gone to this restaurant for many years, especially on special occasions. We hadn't gone in about a year and went again last week. Boy, has there been a change for the worse. First, we noticed that as we walked to our table, our feet were sticking to the floor as we walked. Then we noticed a separate wood... More

I've had a lot of great experiences here in the past, but a few times I was disappointed. Pros: It's usually fast, friendly service. Strong, yummy, drinks (trust me you only need one and your feeling pretty good). Price isn't too bad for decent sushi, food is yummy, and the show is fun. Cons: There is one chef there that... More

We stopped into Sakura for a quick sushi dinner and were shocked at the condition of this restaurant. I'm not sure if they are experiencing electrical problems or are trying to save money on the light bill, but the lights were out in the sushi bar; we received ambient light from the lobby. Add to that the water-damaged ceiling tiles,... More

I ate here once and compare with another one in Gaithersburg, I did not go back. We ate Hibachi place when we travel and family birthdays. This one is average and the service is not great in comparison to other places, it's an entertainment show should be great.

The food is fresh and cooked right in front of you. The seasoning is unbeatable and we always leave thoroughly satisfied. Go hungry and be prepared for an excellent meal.

The chefs are always very personable and entertaining. My 3 year old loves the show when they cook, he never tires of it so we always go back. The food is excellent, a bit pricey but worth it.

My teen grandson chooses this Sakura every year for his birthday dinner. We usually have 7 people and everyone is always happy with their food. The chef puts on a great show, making the food on the grill.
