We just finished a most enjoyable Sunday lunch. Convenient location near Pioneer Square downtown. Two blocks from the MAX. We stumbled onto happy hour, open at noon on Sunday. By 1:15, the place is packed. I'd recommend planning to be there by 12:30. This is a very reasonably priced sushi house with fresh delicious varieties and pleasant chefs. My wife... More

Fresh ingredients, quite a bit selections, central location, normal sushi taste. We caught the happy hours, and very good price, $30 for two people, 11 plates and two Saporo beer. The only issue is that they may use too much mayo or something taste creamy.

Sushi Sakura was next to our hotel and our niece traveling with us had never had Sushi so we decided to check it out. I had only seen a Sushi Train on TV food shows. It was really interesting to experience. The only problem was we could not easily identify which rolls or food was going by us. I was... More

We saw the photos of this and were curious, we've had some great sushi at conveyor places like this. The prices were great, happy hour was a good deal. I wish we liked the food but it was average at best. The few rolls we tried were ok, the Gyoza and spring rolls were gross, the iced tea was tasteless.

Choose what you like from the conveyor belt. Lots of choice. Calculate cost by colour . We went there a few times.

So sometimes my goal is to see how inexpensively I can get a snack in a sit down restaurant. After a full day of sightseeing in Portland, Oregon, my feet were really killing me. I just missed the 2:30 p.m. cook's break at my favorite Portland Vietnamese restaurant, Luc Lac, where an order of tasty spring rolls (tofu, pork, shrimp,... More

The food is just not good. I've been to several conveyor belt type sushi's. I understand this is not a high end restaurant but the food is just not fresh. The sushi is not fresh and the rolls are just wet and soggy.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after a long day of traveling. The prices seemed reasonable and I was motivated to try some sushi items that I might otherwise not have tried without seeing how good they looked in person. The only cons we experienced was that the service was really slow. We waited for a good 15... More

I do love sushi and Sushi Sakura did not disappoint. I had read several differing reviews on this place on Yelp, but it seemed like most who gave it a bad review did so based on it being just a hole in the wall, not a "fine-dining experience." Well, fine-dining experience aside, I think if you are going to a... More

I wandered in at 8:30. Had wonderful frsh sushi made for me. Fun watching the go round, but at that hour figured custom made was better. It sure was good. I ordered my usual favorites, scarfed them down, then ordered more. Coming back. Fun sitting at the counter.
