Nothing fancy nothing bad!

My husband and another couple we like to go to dinner had dinner here the other night based upon our friends suggestions. We were seated right away at a table in the back room and shortly after another group was seated with us, which didn't make a difference to us. Our hostess gathered our... read more

Sakura, is a wonderful place for a hibachi meal! I've dined there at least a hand full of times and I am never left disappointed. The prices are cheap, the food is tasty, the portions are large, the restaurant is clean, the hibachi chef's are all friendly and each puts on a great show while cooking for your food. Everything...

Wow! Awesome food! Great service. What we like most is that we didn't have to sit at a table of strangers. We sat at a table and we were served our food all at once. The food was delicious. We had Chicken and Steak and it was soooo gooood! I wish we had a Sakura in Paducah. Can't wait to... More

I've been coming here for quiet sometime although the service is always terrible, because the food is good. This visit I come in right at 11 because I only have a 45 minute lunch break for work. There were 2 couples along with myself who were all waiting on someone to seat us. While waiting we could hear 2-3 servers... More

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
