Fun and Tasty

I've been here a bunch of times and I'm always happy. Great entertainment, cheap prices for the quality of food and attentive service. The chefs are talented and the food is always cooked perfectly. Drinks are good too. Highly recommend! I've never waited to get in because they have so many grills... read more

Drinks are good too. Highly recommend! I've never waited to get in because they have so many grills and chefs.

We went with our family for our daughter-in-law's birthday. Excellent service, excellent food! Our grandkids were very excited to see the chefs cook right at the table. Definitely won't leave here hungry!

We went here for some good Hibachi food and atmosphere our last night in town. Always good food. The filet mignon and scallops were excellent!

Our family has celebrated a dozen birthdays over time at this entertaining restaurant. Each of us has a little favorite part of the show by now and it is always fun to bring some first time guest along. The food is of very consistent quality and servings are large. I'm diabetic and make a full meal out of the soup... More

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! They have a great... 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
