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.

Food is good The only thing I dont like about the tables is that you get your food in sections.....but portions are good and pricing is reasonable for what you get

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.

Sakura is a typical Japanese Steak House - where you sit around a Hibachi table and the chef produces your meal with skill and showmanship amidst flourishes and flames. It's a great place for families (kids are enthralled with the "volcanoes"). The food was very good, the service excellent. The only down side for me was that, given the seating... More

I've been to this restaurant many times and I am always pleased! The food is AMAZING! The meat is cooked perfectly, the fried rice is wonderful and the seasoning on the vegetables is delicious! I never ate zucchini, squash or peppers until I came here and tried them. And now I'm trying to figure out exactly what their recipe is... More
