Fantastic

My friend has a limited amount of time for lunch so I called ahead and the gentleman who answered the phone was very concerned about the quality of the food and whether or not it would be hot when we arrived. Little did he need to worry. This was my first time there and my first impression was... read more

We had a catered lunch from here once, and it was absolutely delicious. The steak was cooked very good, very tender, and the Sakura white sauce was to die for. Cannot wait to have food from there again.

Great service and average food marked my visit here. I was disappointed after reading sterling reviews, but the lobster, shrimp and tenderloin meal I ordered was just OK. The lobster was marred by a brown sauce that masked the lobster flavor (which should have been cooked the same way as the shrimp, which were outstanding). The tenderloin was tender but... More

We had takeout here. The food was good, but the variety was very limited. They need to add more entrees to their menu.

This is a great place to go for lunch. They are super fast and get you in and out. I am not a huge fan of the vegetables, as they seem like they are almost still raw half of the time but I cannot complain about anything else!

I have moved from the area but never miss a chance to eat here when back in town! LOVE the food and I'm never disappointed. GREAT value too! Formerly worked down the street and ate lunch several times in a week quite often.

It seems that recently I am more dissapointed by the lack of respect of fellow diners. Usually there is someone behind me that is so loud I can't think straight. Or an obnoxious inattentive waiter/waitress. I went last week for lunch to Sakura and maybe it was the "sparse" atmosphere but it was so peaceful and calm there. Everyone was... More

Very good food. Very good prices. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was sparse. Interior really needs a rehab, especially paint. The bathroom was horrible. There's a 1/2 gap in the door. It really needs help. Overall the food was very good and you get a very large portion.

Good quality Japanese food served in pleasant surroundings. Great for takeout as well. I especially like the teriyaki chicken

My family and I have visited this Japanese restaurant since opening many years ago and have found that it is pleasant, consistant, yummy food and I usually bring home leftovers. We enjoy the soup, salad and entree's of steak, chicken and shrimp with veggies and rice. If you have special requests (no onion, etc) they are accomodating. The people are... More
