Typical Japanese steak house

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

We had a party of 8 (with reservations) and were seated right away. Our Hibachi chef was named the Rock. He kept everyone entertained, especially my two nephews. We all had a very good dinner and a good laugh at the same time. It was a good break away from the regular Ocean City madness at dinnertime.

We came here despite the mixed reviews. I always like to try things for myself. Not sure why some people were so negative. I ate here with a party of 9. We all enjoyed the food. I got the steak and shrimp. I also ordered the Kani salad and the Tuna sushi from the sushi menu. I wasn't so pleased... More

I was surprised to see so many great reviews for this restaurant. I'm guessing the difference between our experience and the others is we went to the sushi bar and not the teppanaki tables. I love sushi and seek it out where ever I go. This was a disappointment. I knew I was in trouble when there were very few... More

Shawna and Mike took us out to Sakura’s in West Ocean City to celebrate Mother’s Day. From the sushi choices, Shawna and Mike ordered the “Godzilla” and I ordered the avocado cucumber roll. A choice of appetizers is included with the entrée. Crista ordered scallops with the chicken livers, I ordered the salmon steak, with sautéed mushrooms as appetizer, while... More

I'm local to OC and have been in Sakura million times. I love hibachi food and this is the only place we have in town, even though it's in WOC. Location is terrible, many locals do not even know about it. Talking about the staff, hm, the manager Min is so unprofessional, I can't even stand her, Mr. Cho barely... More
