Given people's passion for this place, I was excited to finally drag my wife there and give Sakura a try. Romantic it is not, with a worn out dated feel, plastic menus and harsh lighting, but the food definitely shines. The beef negimyaki and steamed gyoza were both top notch - good meat, soft dumplings, nice balance - so we... More

Love this place. Small, crowded and loud ambiance. Chilean Sea Bass is my favorite along with the shrimp and garlic salad. Never disappointed.

This restaurant has a terrible menu, with no vegetarian sushi, or noodle dishes. The seating is very cramped with not a lot of room to move around in.

Having eaten in Japanese restaurants in NYC and various cities in California, I can honestly say this is some of the best sushi around. The place is small and usually crowded, but hey - that's what happens with a great restaurant. I am not a very adventurous sushi eater, but my friends are, and they said the menu is very... More

Ate here frequently many years ago - visiting friends in the area and decided to stop by and give it a try. It was a Friday night - fairly long wait, but well worth it! Sushi was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Very diverse and creative menu. My companions were very well-travelled, and had eaten sushi at some of the... More

I've been to this place many times, it is usually crowded but they manage to serve you quickly. The food is very good and the seafood is fresh. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

I had lunch with a friend and found the selection to be extensive, with many exotic dishes. The food was fresh and attractive. I had sushi B, an excellent combination of rolls and fish. Service was friendly and efficient. You can usually tell if an ethic restaurant is good, if those of a similar background eat there. In this case... More

From outside, this place looks dim and unwelcoming, But inside, it's bright, lively, and friendly. The sushi is fantastic, as was everything else that we tried. We plan to eat here often.

We came for the sushi, which didn't disappoint, but we'll be back for the tempura. The batter was perfect and the shrimp and vegetables were perfectly fried! Very very good. We got a lot of fish and other stuff and got just a small serving of the tempura as part of the cold soba meal. Next time we'll order a... More
