Jenny who's one of the owners served us. She's very happy & extremely friendly! The service, food, and atmosphere was awesome! I liked their modern decor & upbeat music. I had the avocado roll, and the pumpkin roll (fried pumpkin, cucumber, spicy mayo) which was yummy! For dessert, I had mango mochi ice cream (mango ice cream wrapped in soft... More

We brought our friends to Sakura and stayed longer than we anticipated because we were having so much fun! Our server was adorable and friendly and gave us special service and advise. The food was slow, but it was a busy night. When it did arrive, it was everything we could want and expect in Sushi. Prices are fair, food... More

This has to be one of the most friendly asian restaurants we have encountered. The staff is helpful, knowledgable and very friendly. The sushi and related food items are done well as is the non-sushi style food. A particular treat is their Friday Fish Fry. It is high quality white fish in panko breading with sides of rice and korean... More

This is downtown typical sushi place. There was only 2 other tables for a Tuesday night so I expected better service. The food was good a the price was fair.I would go back. Only place I could find that was close and open later. Everyone was friendly. Would recommend.

While we don't seek out Japanese dining, my gf and I seem to gravitate back here regularly. The staff is always courteous and knowledgeable about their menu. If you aren't familiar with terms like nagiri, sushi and sashimi, this is the place to start. You'll be glad you did.

but I really dig Sakura. Clean, comfortable atmosphere and excellent, friendly service. I usually order the chicken teriyaki lunchbox and it is so yummy. I can't speak to the sushi though, sorry!

So far we have never had a bad time at Sakura. The food is has been good time and time again. We have always gone on non busy days like sundays and thursdays so I couldn't really say how it is during peak hours. We have tried just about all the sushi rolls on the menu and every one has... More

Downtown Waukesha, who knew? Great sushi and sashimi to be had at Sakura. We had a couple rolls, sashimi, a kirin and an asahi beer. All quite good. Tip : if you like your wasabi to be HOT and send that wave of heat through your sinuses, stir it up before putting it on the sushi.
