Sakura is always a good time and a good eating experience. I have eaten at various hibachi-style restaurants and I always have to give the nod to Sakura. The staff is not as family-friendly as they used to be when I first visited here back in 2002 but the food is still good and the cooks are still engaging as... More

We went here for early dinner. The sushi deluxe was very good. This restaurant is right inside the outlets so it was very convenient.

This is our second or third time to Sakura and I must say we have never been disappointed in either the restaurant's food or service. Yes we were there off season, but still had no wait to be seated or for the meal to begin. "Mr. Lee" was our chef and was actually quite good and a very good cook.... More

If you like hibachi food where it's cook in the center for a group of people, you'll like this place. It's the standard Japanese restaurant. It was a bit empty because of the season, but we enjoyed the atmosphere and food.

While staying in OC we stopped in to eat. They prepare your food right there at your table, and the chef we had made it fun to watch. The food was amazing. Even my 5-year-old grandson ate everything on his plate!

Went went July 27 for a birthday with a party of 9 including one kid. Our chef was okay. Not quite as funny as a nearby chef and did special things for my friend with the birthday. The drinks are delicious. We paid extra to get the Buddha cups. I thought it was a priced a little high for the... More
