Dinner at Sakura was really delicious! We both enjoy sushi and chicken teriyaki so we have been a quest to find the BEST in the city. My husband really enjoyed this chicken teriyaki and while I enjoyed it too, my favorite remains at Edo’s. Sakura’s sushi was excellent. Especially their shrimp tempura roll which was enormous! The spicy tuna rolls... More

The food is not authentic Japanese, more like Chinese cooks copying Japanese cuisine. The tempura dinner, while a lot of food for the price, was quite doughy, the miso soup watered down, the rice hard and sides lacking the Japanese finesse. I was really disappointed. They also screwed up our extra sauces order and tried to blame it on the... More

Sukura has the best service, the food is always fresh and VERY reasonably priced. The Joyce rolls are the best, if you want to splurge in calories just once!! This place is very busy every time I come which is often! Excellent service.

The Brenda and Nathan rolls are both excellent and contain no rice. There are two locations, with the second existing in Germantown. The service is more friendly and much faster at the Germantown location. They have average tasting miso soup and very good seaweed salad. When choosing rolls with rice, my favorites are the Sexy lady and Dynamite rolls. If... More

Sushi is as good as can be found in Memphis. The rest of the menu is typical of any std Japanese place. Large serving portions. Service was prompt and friendly

My hubby and I swing between this restaurant and another in Collierville when we are in a sushi mood. We have never had an unpleasant experience here. Prices are fairly standard for sushi or maki rolls. Service is usually prompt and professional and the restaurant is clean. The sushi is well-prepared and tasty. We have ordered other dishes here as... More

I ordered grilled salmon w/ teriyaki sauce. The salmon was not grilled nor did it have a "grilled" flavor however it did have the grilled marks on it so I guess that would qualify it as grilled, lol. The tempura chicken & veggies were very bland, blah! My daughter almost threw up, the food was sickening! The service was good... More

This is one of my favorite sushi restaurants. I love the Golden Spider Roll and their tempura items are addictive. I've read some of the other reviews that say the decor is dated. I disagree. The booths are so comfortable, and the acoustics make the place quiet even when they are busy. The service is always good and I've never... More
