I have tried several different Japanese Steakhouses and this is the best. Plus, it is close to where I live which is a bonus. The food is very high quality and is prepared with little extra seasonings which set it apart. The chefs are not quite as entertaining as other restaurants, but you can only be amazed at the Flaming... More

I recently took my mother to lunch for her birthday at this restaurant. The staff was very friendly, service was good and the chef put on a good show. I didn't think the food was as good as some other hibachi restaurants that I have tried, but that's just a personal prefernce. I'm not a huge fan of ginger and... More

This place is a gem! The food was delicious and the portions were quite generous. My husband liked it better than Benihana! The chef put on quite a show. Fun atmosphere.

Food is very tasty and reasonably priced. My only complaint would be some of the host and servers are not very friendly. If management would address that issue it would be five stars for sure!

Best food in the area. The freshest food and love the ginger salad dressing. The cook are wonderful and so are the host. I have been there a million times and have never had a bad experience. It is the only nice place in Portsmouth to go on a date or even go as a family.

This was our first time dining at Sakura. For starters we were served a broth like soup, which was tasty but could have been a little hotter. Next was a salad that was mainly large chunks of lettuce that were very difficult to cut up given there is no knife. However, the ginger dressing had a nice flavor. Our main... More
