This place is filthy the carpets are soo dirty along with the ceiling tile. The food is mediocre at best.they give you enough food for a toddler. They give you a salad with ranch dressing really! The chef was non engaging and was not that good. I've been to many steak houses and this one was horrible. They rush you... More

The title says it all. I don't understand the other reviews that say this place is so fantastic. The food was dismal and the service was even worse. I've been to one other Japanese steak house in the area and couldn't believe what I saw when walking into this place. It's like walking into a broke down side of the... More

First off we made reservations and had to wait 45 minutes past our reservation time. No worries, the reviews were great. We didn t get to order drinks, but the waitress had no problem asking the other 1/2 of our group for their drink orders. Maybe it s because they were white (the other 1/2 of the group that is)....

I have eatedn here many times over the years, the food is always good, have always had good service and generally the chef's put on a good show (it does vary from chef to chef, with some being more entertaining and interactive than others). The only issue (if you would call it an issue) is trying to get in without... More

The orange sauce is good over everything. This place gets packed, you might want to make a reservation if you have a large party. The food is good and the chefs cook the food in front if you. Can be a little pricey.

I love eating at Sukura. It has great food, but is quite worn inside. The interior (carpet, tables, bathrooms) looks like it has not been updated since the 1960's. It reminds me of the song "I like my girls a little on the trashy side"!. I eat here once a month or so and always know what to expect. Like... More

This place has been around for a long time for a reason, excellent food for an excellent price. I have been dining here for years and compared to the pricier corporate teppan yaki restaurants such as Tanaka of Tokyo or Benihana, Sakura has better food for way less. I have tried some of the other local teppan places such as... More

I went to Sakura with my mom and a friend from out of town, and everything went okay throughout the meal. However, when it came to the bill I experienced the most amazing harassment from the manager I could possibly imagine. Apparently the waitress was new and was accidentally charging us for an entire extra meal, and the moment I... More
