Great sushi lunch

Excellent service and high quality sushi. Sashimi was very fresh and eel lover roll was delicious! Served in a clean environment. Will return!

Veg tempura appetizer was excellent; crunchy tuna roll appetizer was not so great; tempura shrimp was excellent; yellowtail roll appetizer was good. Nabe Yakiudon was a tasty treat. Hibachi scallops and chicken were mediocre dishes. Sushi plate was good.

I love this place and now they deliver! I am hooked on Tuna Tartar, Goyza and the steak and scallop hibachi. The spicy tuna roll is amazing.

Very rude service, but then again that has been my experience at most Japanese restaurants. So snooty - I hate that! BUT... this was the BEST sushi I have had in a long time. Good thing they have fresh fish, otherwise their bad attitude would put them out of business. So five stars for sushi but 0 stars for service... More

I've eaten at Sakura many times and enjoyed it--especially the Thai curries and some of the Chinese dishes. But they changed the menu sometime in the spring of 2014. When I ate there in August (2014), there were no curries or Chinese stir fries. I ended up ordering grilled salmon. It was dry, tasteless, and nearly inedible. My friends enjoyed... More

The service is very friendly and it feels like an authentic Japanese place. The sushi is the best in town and I've tried them all...

I had the tofu teriyaki, and the tofu was fine, but the sauce was gummy and thoroughly unremarkable. The salad was mostly iceberg lettuce topped with a bland dressing. The chicken in my companion's chicken with pineapple was mostly breadcrumbs, which she scraped off to encounter rather tasteless meat.

Had the hibachi scallop dinner ($17.95) based on daughter's recommendation. I mistakenly asked a couple questions - whether the scallops were bay or sea and whether they were farm raised. This set back our ordering for a bit and I never got an answer before ordering. Turns out they were sea scallops - cut in pieces. This comes with salad... More

Sakura has a vast menu with top quality food and preparation techniques. Their seafood soup and other appetizers are fantastic. We usually order some hot appetizer and then sushi and sashimi -- again, top notch. Service staff, sushi chefs, and the behind the scenes kitchen staff do a great job.
