Food and sushi were excellent. The chefs were entertaining! I enjoyed their volcano and Christmas tree sushi. My children enjoyed their kid friendly menu too!

The service was great. The atmosphere was fair. We only had sushi. Sashimi, spicy tuna rolls, advocate rolls and Miso soup. We sent the spicy tuna back. It was horrid. We were shocked at the rave reviews. No way would we recommend. Awful.

We really love this place an have gone many times when in flagstaff... The service is excellent, and the teppanyaki chefs are really fun and funny, they interact with the table quite a bit. The prices are a little high compared to other more casual restaurants, but no more so than your average teppanyaki place. We have always just walked... More

This restaurant has great service and the best food in town. The atmosphere is fun and exciting for all ages. Chef Antonio was very personable and fun. My 4 1/2 year old even commented on how Antonio was a "great cook and made great food".

Please accept our apologies. We take our service and food quality very seriously at Sakura Sushi & Teppanyaki. We are investigating the matter with the servers, hostess and chefs working that night.

We took our daughter to Sakura for her 21st birthday. Our family had so much fun! Our chef was Antonio and he was very exciting to watch.
