Delicious and good value!

Enjoyed having lunch here with my family! Not the best Japanese food I've necessarily had, but tasty, generous portions, well-priced with friendly staff and cooks. I read the other reviews that said that this restaurant has lost some loyal customers - too bad! It could explain the quiet lunch crowd we encountered at 12:30 on a weekday.

The other reviews do not do this place justice. Yes it's an old building BUT the staff was friendly, entertaining, and the food was great! I was scared to even go here based on the prior reviews but I left not only satisfied but impressed! One of the best teppenyaki restaraunts I've been to just based on the fun experience... More

This was once a nice place to eat with visitors to town. Now it is really bad. The place needs a facelift and clean up. The overall impression is that it is dirty and greasy. The food still tastes OK but the cooks at the tepanyaki tables are no longer entertaining they just give the impression that they want to... More

For well over 10 years, Sakura was our favorite sushi restaurant. From date nights to babysitter nights, it was our favorite go-to place, several times a month. After a hiatus of around 2 years (our 8 year old son does not like sushi), we went back for a date night, full of anticipation of a great dinner. What a disappointment!... More

My wife and two pre-school age children accompanied me to Sakura on a Sunday for lunch. Let me start by saying the service is outstanding. Very friendly from the time we walked in, the waitress was great, and the chef put on a great show. The food was also very good, we tried the calamari, steak, chicken, and veggies. All... More

The food was delicious and the table-side preparation very entertaining. They do need to check the ladies restroom for cleanliness.

We loved going to Sakura and regularly ate sushi there. In fact, we've been spending between $40 and $50 there every week. But, suddenly, the best sushi chefs left and the quality went downhill. We tried to enjoy it, but the fish tasted really fishy and slid down our throats. The flavor was awful, the service was sub-par and the... More

The happy hour drink and food specials were good. The sushi was great! The staff was good and the environment was nice as well. They have a restaurant and and a bar side as well as a big outside patio to eat and drink at with live music.

My father and I came here for my going away meal before I left the states for more than a year. I love Teppenyaki and thought that deffinately isn't something I'm going to get in Africa. I looked on Trip Advisor and seen that this place had good reviews, but my experience didn't seem to align with them. There was... More

We heard about the great happy hour deals at Sakura, so my wife and I went there to give it a try. The bottom line was that the restaurant is clean and inviting, the food was great, the service was friendly and gracious, and the happy hour prices were very reasonable. We filled up on freshly-made California rolls and sushi,... More
