Not the cleanest or nicest place I have been

Strolled down the street looking for a place to dine. Our first choice had air conditioning problems so we popped into Sakura. We both had sushi and were both disappointed. The quality of the sushi was significantly lower that what we were used to. We also had fried dumplings which were very greasy... read more

I always read reviews before I eat in any establishment. When we entered I almost wanted to turn around because it wasnt as easy on the eyes.. but we sat down to dine. The waitress was very attentive to our glasses and requests. The sushi was AWESOME. I have been searching for an inexpensive place to eat sushi and this... More

We stumbled upon this place on Easter when staying in the city and walking, and decided on a whim to try it since not a lot was open. They give you free spring onion flatbread as an appetizer, which is nice. It seems like a college place. Staff are student like and are very attentive. The menu is low on... More

Reviews on foodie sites recommended this place. The place itself however was scary. The waitstaff were grungy punk rockers; we had at least 3 different of them, all needed a bath and shave. They hovered over the food prep area chatting it up. The cash out counter is a clutter of mish-mash; the owners are oblivious to patrons until it... More

This sushi place is right opposite the Marshall House, where we stayed. We had ignored it the first week and also had a pact not to eat at same place more than once in Savannah, to try more. We ended up going 3 times. The sushi is perfect and I have eaten sushi all over the World plus my daughter... More

Sakura doesn't have the decorum of a fancy sushi place. It doesn't even have fantastic service (just good service, straight and simple....) but for the price of the delicious, fresh, CHEAP sushi you receive there it's a heck of a joint to pop in to. Order the spring onion bread, asparagus sushi, or the sweet potato sushi. We are vegetarians,... More

Great Food for a great price! I would definitely go there again. The seaweed salad was excellent and we recommend the David's Dragon roll if you love eel.
