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

Food was great. Our chef Koji was very friendly and funny on top of a skilled chef. The service was fast and the atmosphere very comfortable

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

I recently had dinner with approximately 25 people for a holiday party and had a good time. We had drinks in the bar while we waited until everyone arrived and were promptly seated once we were ready. I always enjoy the tableside preparation of the food and listening to the Chefs tell jokes. I don't enjoy having the food tossed... More

The food at this particular steak house is much like the food at most Japanese steak houses. But I think the quality of food here and the portions are just a little less then what I am used to. You had to order mushrooms separate, they didn't come with a standard veggie order. The yum yum sause was more like... More

We were so excited. After receiving our soup, salad and waiting 20 minutes we thought we were going to be served. Then they sat another family at our table and made us wait untill they were ordered. We then waited another 30 minutes before they served us. We were about to walk out. Have some respect for your patrons!!!!!

I'm local and visited the place quite a few times, most of the times it happened off season. My experience last Saturday was kind of shocking. The food was ok. You must be a 5 year old child to make grilled shrimps taste bad. What shocked me then was the service/cooking and employees attitude. There were 6 people at our... More

A group of 7 of us went to Sakura last night for a going away party and it was brilliant! We've never been to a restaurant like Sakura before, so having the chefs as entertainment was something really different! Our chef was very entertaining and cracked a lot of jokes as well as singing to us! On top of all... More

We came here while on vacation & had a really fun dinner. The chefs were all truly funny & entertaining. We had both tapenaki & sushi, enjoyed both. The staff was excellent, very large & pretty restaurant. The prices were reasonable as well.
