Loved our meal at sakura III, but we massively over ordered! The pictures in the menu are helpful, but the portion sizes were bigger than we expected, so we were sat at the end staring at wasted delicious food! The waiter did ask if we wanted to take it away with us, but unfortunately we were going out after so... More

Ate here 2 nights during the holiday. I crave for sushi and japanese food as I dont get allot of it in ireland so i take the opportunity to eat lots of it on holidays. I think the meats are microwaved because the hot dishes were close to disgusting the sushi was average and its not a cheap restaurant. I... More

We had some nice sushi, spring rolls, beef dish and shrimp tempura in this restaurant. We enjoyed the sushi and spring rolls very much. The beef dish was okay but the tempura was a bit tasteless. Very nice wine: a bottle of Waltraut Riesling by Torres for only € 22,-. The decoration is typical Japanese with some private dining rooms.... More

Went for the Sakura Meal (43 euros pp) but it's a must-do thing. You'll spend a couple of hours watching your food being seasoned, prepared and cooked in front of your eyes (you even get to meet your lobster alive before it gets cooked).Take a camera along and enjoy yourselves thoroughly (& if you can catch the piece of omlette...

This was the first time we went to this restaurant. It always looked nice to me but my partner doesn't fancy fish so until this time we just passed by. But then we noticed that the restaurant also has a wide range of vegetarian dishes. So we decided to give it a try, and we did not regret our choice.... More

For of us went in for dinner at the part right off the Avenida (the inner part is where the chef prepares food in front of you). At a nearly empty restaurant, with no apparent shortage of staff we were left to sit unattended for nearly 10 minutes and had to beckon a waiter. When my gioza failed to arrive... More

We have been to this Japanese restaurant for years. It is a solidly excellent performer. Superb food. Service above average, just the slight over attentiveness you get in Oriental restaurants which is a little much for the Irish (we like left alone to chat) The meals at the teppen are nicely varied, not cheap, but begin hungry, you won't end...

Nice place. you may even take your shoes off and get seated in the traditional chinese way in special boxes done for it…. very nice and friendly service, but big and busy…. and a menu like a phonebook, as they do it from japanese to vietnamese and thailandese. As the service is quick, just order step by step and you'll... More

Went to the Teppan Yaki part of the restaurant recently with friends wanting to try something new. We were a little apprehensive as this was a new dining experience. Couldn't have been more impressed. If unsure go for one of the mixed platter menus - cost starts about €20 per head which may seem pricey compared to other types of... More
