Great little Japanese Restaurant

nice location, and really good sushi. The dressing they had for the salad, was to die for. Great portions were really appreciated. First time I had eaten there, but guarantee it won't be the last.

When the local Japanese eat there, you know it is good. The sushi chef execellant and can put together some wonderful dishes. Like most good Japanese restaurants, it is a little expensive, but if you want good Japanese food, you have to pay for it.

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
