Basically, they forgot to put my food order in. When I asked about it they kept telling me it was in the oven. It was finally brought to me as they took my husbands empty plate away. Then to add insult to the whole process, my food was sitting on the shelf for a good 5 minutes before someone... read more

We ate lunch here and found the place to be a pleasant enough atmosphere, but nothing special. Their lunch menu has good specials and pricing is value oriented, but the portions are small. Food is tasty but not really memorable.

We have eaten here twice and both times the food and service was good. They are reasonably priced and the atmosphere is peaceful.

We headed over to Sakura based on everyone's reviews on Trip Advisor and we were happy we did. The service was excellent and the food reached us in record time. We got there just before the dinner rush and were glad we did as the restaurant filled up really quickly. I had the pork katsu and my wife had the... More

Sakura is a treat in the desert that delivers super fresh sushi. Their Lollipop roll is a super clean, light, fresh delight wrapped in cucumber. The Firecracker roll is outstanding and is a meal in itself, and the Lobster Tempura is a little treat that delivers healthy sushi along with a naughty little treat of tempura lobster chunks. All delivered... More

For this dinnertime visit my wife and I decided to go Korean. She ordered the stone pot beef bibimbap, which was very tasty, and I went for the bulgogi, which was equally good. The portions are generous; the service at this family run restaurant is excellent; and the prices are quite reasonable.

Sakura is a small, friendly and comfortable family owned restaurant offering some unusual ethnic choices along with an extensive sushi menu. The dishes can be made spicy or mild according to your preference. My wife and I had dinner there recently and everything was very good. The portions were generous so that we brought some food home.

Friend and I went for an early lunch on a Tuesday. We were the first customers and the waitress was pleasant but not very knowledgeable about sushi. She was not sure what Maki was and despite my order, she never brought that one. My friend was very much into sashimi and told her so, but the special she brought only... More

We decided to try Sakura based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sushi and the friendliness of the staff. We ordered the Love Boat that comes with a variety of sushi and sashimi. It was perfect size for two of us. My girls ordered the California Rolls and they really liked them. They did... More

We decided to drive across town to try this place based on the reviews. It was average at best. Maybe they were having an off night, because service wasn't very good at all. The waitress seemed preoccupied, forgetful and slow. The miso soup was good, and yellowtail sushi was good, but the hand roll was horrible. The seaweed was dry,... More
