I live in the Hermitage area, so I come to Sakura probably once a week. Sushi is my favorite food, and they make pretty good rolls. The lunch special is good too; 3 rolls for $9.99. The habachi is pretty okay as well. However, I usually take my meals to-go because the service is the worst I've ever experienced. When... More

I had a long review ready to post but it's as simple as this..I had a fingernail in my rice..that I found by eating. And the service has consistently been terrible. Management is blind and doesn't seem to care about costumer service at all. The nail incident: she tried to DISCOUNT just my food. She wanted me to pay! I... More

My boys begged to go for the lunch special. They had a chicken speical for $5.99 and a steak or shrimp special for $6.99. The special included your choice of salad or soup and fried rice. The hibachi performance was very enjoyable. The food was very tasty and a reasonable lunch size portion. For the price, I would recommend this... More

Of the locations around Nashville airport this seemed to be the most different. We sat through the hibachi performance and the food was okay. Sushi was mediocre. You'll need a rental car to get to it if you're at a hotel airport, but compared to the closer airports this was probably the best choice.

I've been to Sakura several times since they opened. I was here this time to use a soon-to-expire Groupon so was able to eat more than I normally do. Sakura has the Hibachi dog and pony show, and they make onion candles and toss eggs as well as anyone. They even have a couple of guys who come in and... More

I purchased a Groupon for this place since it's in my neighborhood. The building does seem a little older and the decor is not what it could be, but the food is just as good as any hibachi restaurant. The sushi is good and it is priced very reasonably. Customer Service was great! I'll be back!

Sakura Japanese restaurant has a new owner and he is working hard to please his customers. Mr. Choi has upgraded the building, hired new staff and has an excellent sushi man. A great place to enjoy good food with family the hibachi is fun and the chefs fun to watch. Prices are reasonable. I will be back!

Ate here before heading downtown and definitely enjoyed it. It is a typical Hibachi Grill setup. The food was good. I ordered the steak and chicken, and obviously it came with fried rice. The flavor was really good. The building is a bit more worn down than others, but that doesn't bring down the experience. I haven't tried the sushi... More

Sakura has the best fried rice I have ever tasted. Try the bento box - meat, rice, fried veggie and shrimp tempura, salad, sushi, and more for about 15.

This has been a favorite restaurant of ours, but we had a VERY disappointing visit this week. I first noticed that the menu has changed. The child's hibachi meal no longer includes soup and salad, yet the price is the same as before. We were seated after another group was already eating salad at our grill (2nd course). It took...
