Great Food

We got seated right away, got our drinks right away and they took our order right away. The Hibachi Chef was great. He entertained our 4 yr old grandson which is hard to do and he is scared of the fire. We were entertained also. The food was great and it all came to our plates at once unlike some... read more

We went to Sakura for Sushi as it was recommended by a couple of hotel staff members. It was without a doubt the worst Sushi we have ever had. The pieces were falling apart and very difficult to handle, the salmon was not filets, but instead some kind of puree. Our waitress was not the most attentive and there was... More

The service was not very good (my waiter never once came back to check on me). I can stand service that is subpar if the food is good but that was not the case. The sushi roll was very mushy and was not chilled but rather some semblance of luke warm which is not good for a sushi roll. I... More

I was impressed. Food and excitement was up. Walked in, no wait, and left full. Definitely a second day kind of place. Will return.

went to eat here on a whim, wasnt sure what to expect. It was a very pleasurable experience. From the hostess to the guy who cooked us our supper to those we sat with - everyone made it so much fun. And the saki was good too!!

Food was prepared well. Service was a little slow with drink refills. Floor was very greasy feeling throughout the restaurant. Otherwise, restaurant was clean.

We have been here a few times but it is over priced for what you are receiving. The atmosphere is not as exciting as we had hoped and the cart the chef was using looked really dirty.

The whole time spent here was great. From the time we walked in the door till we left the place everything was great we go back every Friday or Saturday. The staff was great and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere.

This restaurant was recommended to us when we asked where a good place to eat would be for a 2 couples. It was beyond our expectations from previous Japenese dining we have had. We ordered the dinner for 2 and had steak, chicken, shrimp and lobster. It was all amazing, we also had the fried rice. I have a gluten... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from a restaurant in a mall parking lot in Minot, but there were enough good reviews on here that we decided to try it. It was busy on Sunday of Labor day weekend, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes. The service is fast and there are a ton of choices on the... More
