Always Yummy

We have been here several times and every time we go it is good. There is a sushi bar, which we have never eaten at, tables and the grills- which we love. The chef is always entertaining and for $20-$30 you can get an entree which includes soup, salad, an appetizer, rice and some times noodles... read more

I love Sakura. The show becomes a bit redundant after the umteenth time, but the food remains delicious. Highly recommend going in a group for maximum enjoyment.

Awesome food! The sauteed mushrooms are to die for. I do wish they offered a half portion option. I cant eat that much food and I hate wasting it.

We ate lunch there a few weeks ago after picking up an Rx at Walgreen's across Rte. 29. It had been recommended to us by a tech at Martha Jefferson Hospital. He was in heaven over the teppanyaki bar experience, especially that portions were huge. When we entered, the teppanyaki was not what we had in mind--too much of a... More

We went here for my daughter's birthday and made reservations. They were very accommodating and we had a great experience. The food was prepared excellent and we all enjoyed the hibachi experience. This restaurant was better than most of the hibachi style restaurants that I have been to and would return. Nice portions. With drinks and tip our bill for... More

This restaurant was a great experience. We were seated quickly, order taken and chef began cooking within a few minutes. Staff very friendly and they provided us great service. My only complaint is they are priced more expensive than other Japanese restaurants where we've eaten. But, overall a great dining experience.

Great steak and seafood. This is one of the best restaurants of this type we've been too. Great service and tasty veggies and rice too. I know this is a chain, but is nonetheless quite good.

Sakura is a chain with numbers of restaurant mainly in the Maryland and Virginia area. This one in Charlottesville is the third one that we have tried. Although it is a small sampling size, we find this restaurant chain is very consistent with their quality and facility. The restaurant is decorated with the more upscale Japanese style, spacious, with many... More

Great service at this restaurant. All staff are friendly. Restaurant is very clean and has nice decor. Prices were about average for a Hibachi restaurant. Kid's menu is cut-off at 9 years old, which seems a little young, especially considering the price essentially doubles for about the same amount of food. Drink prices seemed a little high. We really enjoyed... More
