Stopped in for lunch, and sat at the sushi bar and had a conversation with the sushi chef, who has been making sushi for 13 years. Food came quickly and was of good quality. Waiter was extremely professional, prompt and had a sense of humor. Atmosphere is a bit dark, but that makes it feel intimate. All in all, it's... More

We have been regulars at Sakura's in the past but had gotten away from going because we had other places more convenient to our home. But we had some errands to run nearby and so we stopped in for dinner. WOW, we have been missing out! The service, atmosphere, and sushi were all fantastic!!!! We will definitely make the longer...

Great food! Very fresh, I recommend the bento boxes. Also had the ika salad, wonderful blend of flavors. My husband had the pork Gyoza followed by chicken fried rice. Not very adventurous on his part, but we both agreed The quality was superior to what we have had elsewhere.

Our friends have been telling us about this place for a while. We decided to try it out before going to the movies. Their Sushi is excellent. I got one of the combos and the waiter was very attentive. He brought out a varied selection of sauces. Really liked their Eel Sauce. We'll definitely eat here again.

The sushi was so so, but not very good. We had to wait almost an HOUR to get our food, and there were not many people in there. When we asked the server if it was almost ready, she said it would be ready in a minute. Then she kept saying that every time she came back through. Then she... More

Well, it was a very good meal and the quality of the sushi as well as the presentation was outstanding. If they have a Phoenix roll as a special then go for it ....it was really good. The Alaska...
